Comment: Fridays during Lent can get pretty crazy. If you don’t like battling the crowds or waiting in line, a Wednesday Fish Fry can be a great alternative and Hank's Burgers & FIsh Fry is here to oblige those savvy Fryers.

We rolled into the Muskellounge around 5:20, grabbed a Cave Ale and a handful of pull tabs, and had an order of perch through Hank’s on-line system less than 10 minutes later. We picked it up at 5:40 and wasted no time digging in.

As of February 2024 Hank’s has walleye, pollock, and lake perch, and the lake perch we had tonight was the genuine article. For $18 five husky fillets filled the to-go container, each with a noticeable fishy flavor that was offset by a bubbly beer batter. It paired nicely with the thin yet pungent tartar and I had no problem quickly burring the quintet.

A smattering of Hank’s waffle fries laid a formidable foundation for the fish and the fat cup of slaw was simply excellent.

The Muskellounge is a pretty great bar, and while the hot pretzels and Fraboni's pizza they had previously were already pretty impressive, having Hank’s right next door really takes their food offerings over the top. Overall, this is a really tasty Fish Fry and we’re more than happy to recommend it.
