We planned to meet some friends a bit north of us in Oconto, they live up there and heard of a good fish fry establishment we had to check out. It seemed like a regular local hangout, and was frequented by snowmobilers coming and going on the trail conveniently located right by this place.

Irish Greens Golf Club is just that, a golf club with a good size bar, and a fairly large dining area. The bar was busy, but the dining was moderately busy from the looks of it. We took a seat at the bar and ordered brandy old fashioneds. I was delighted when the bartender put in some raw sugar, cherries, orange slice, and angostura bitters and began to muddle the cocktail. It was topped off with olives, pickled mushrooms, brusselsprouts, and even a cinnamon stick for garnish.




The brandy old fashioned sweet tasted delicious and as we waited, I proceeded to enjoy two more. Also while we waited we got ourselves a basket of cheese curds and onion rings. Our friends were taking a while so we needed something to snack on.



When our full party of 8 arrived, we put our name in for a table, and a short wait later the waitress was at our pub table in the bar taking our order. There were several fish fry choices as pictured on the menu. I always go for the perch, and sometimes bluegill if they offer it. Irish Greens offers a combo platter which has a few pieces of each fish. I opted for the Regular (4pc) Perch with cheesy hash browns.


When our table was ready, our waitress said tables 13 and 14 were ready with our food. The decor was simple, yet tasteful, and this isn't the first time we've been seated at a table 13 when out for fish fry.


Our dinners were hot and waiting for us when we sat down. The waitress was attentive and made sure we had everything we needed. Our meal was excellent. The perch was lightly breaded and fried deliciously crispy, and the perch was cooked perfectly. The cheesy hash browns were delicious with the hot melted cheese and cooked nicely. The cole slaw was served on the side, it tasted great. Something I haven't seen before was our fish fry being served with beans, they were good, a little bonus and something different from the normal fish fry. And to top it all off, it was served with rye bread, and white raw onion, and for a bonus, a slice of cheddar cheese. The cheese added a new element to the rye bread with onion.


Everything about Irish Greens Golf Club fish fry experience was fantastic. The local feel, the awesome brandy old fashioneds, the great food, and the bonus items you wouldn't typically expect. My plate was licked clean! This is the Classic Wisconsin Fish Fry, you must stop in a and pay them a visit, you will not be disappointed. In fact, Irish Greens deserves a spot on our top five list at #4 top fish fry places in North East Wisconsin.

  3. * First set a financial plan. Try not to take a gander at expensive marked golf sets on the off chance that you don't have a ton of cash to spend.
