Comment: When I asked the waitress “how many pieces of perch do you get” I fully expected her to say “1 or 2 depending on how big they are.” This is pretty typical is 2022. When she said 5-6 my eyes got wide. You see, “1 or 2” is basically code for Pike-Perch or European Perch, while “5 or 6” means you’re looking at real deal Yellow Perch (which is getting harder and harder to find these days). I wasted no time (quickly forgetting about the walleye on the menu) and put in my order for the freshwater delight. It arrived a few minutes later, and while there were only four fillets, they appeared to be (large versions of) the genuine article. They were crusted with a crispy breading that had plenty of its own allure but allowed the subtle flavor of the fish come through. They were enhanced by a thick and potent tartar, and bolstered by some equally crunchy battered fries. The roll was fresh and inviting as was the slaw (although it seemed to be missing a little something). Overall, this was a pretty satisfying Fish Fry especially when you consider I can barely remember the last time I had some lightly-breaded lake perch.
