Best Fish Fry

1st Place: Girolamo’s Court’n House
2nd Place: Smith’s Country Inn
3rd Place: Albertville Tavern

It’s hard to beat a good fish fry, especially here in Wisco. These three Friday fish fry titans made this list in 2015 as well (although the No. 2 and 3 finishers have swapped spots). Those who can brave the busy bar and grill and grab a booth at Girolamo’s Court’n House (113 W. Grand Ave., Eau Claire) will receive a flaky, fishy reward. Smith’s Country Inn (S5786 Highway 37, Eau Claire) is well worth the drive a few miles south of Eau Claire, while Albertville Tavern (8114 35th St., Colfax) draws from far and wide for its legendary fry. — Tyler Jennings Henderson
