Comment: The old church at the corner of East Wash and Hancock has changed hands a couple times since I’ve been in Madison, but it feels like @prost_msn might be the best fit yet.

The space feels right for a German-style beer hall and the Fish Fry fits right in. Cod and walleye are on display on Fridays, and my heaping walleye fillet didn’t disappoint. While I typically like my walleye lightly breaded, the beer batter on this monster balanced out the chubby fillet quite well.

There are a few sides to choose from and when I inquired as to whether the potato pancakes listed on the menu were one of them I was met with a, “nah, they’re not.” so I settled for fries. To my delight, the kitchen did me a solid and one beautiful PP made the plate. It was a scrumptious take with a golden-fried exterior and great flavor. Yum.

A thick and creamy tartar helped the walleye in every way imaginable, and the slaw, while a little onion-y was still creamy and satisfying.

I have to say I was pretty pleased with our UW Homecoming Fish Fry at Prost! The fish was good, the company was great, and the service was exemplary. Now we just need a big Badger win to really cheers the weekend! Prost MSN! Let’s go Red!!!
