Stop! DeGreef Ends Here! Get it? If not, think about it. DeGreef is the family name of the family that runs this place, and I think they are on their second generation. This tavern is way out in the country in the small town of Wayside, which is outside my small hometown of Greenleaf, which is in the town of Wrightstown, another small town. And in small towns like this is where you find a good Friday Fish Fry.

This time I went with my sister and 4 of my nieces, so 6 of us total. We arrived around 6:00pm and the place was packed. I found a spot at the bar just big enough to order drinks and see about putting our name in for a table. The bartender, also the owner, gave us menus and said when we're ready to order to let him know and he will send a waitress over. I ordered myself a brandy old fashioned, my sister and nieces all enjoyed cans of soda.

There were a lot of people in the bar, DeGreef's is definitely a popular establishment with the locals. This being winter, in the country, there were plenty of snowmobiles parked outside and people in their snowmobile pants and coats enjoying beer, cocktails, and seafood inside. The kids were occupied with a pinball style game and a claw drop-they won 3 stuffed animals that night!

We placed our order with a waitress and enjoyed some drinks and chatted as we waited for our table. There are a lot of people who stop by for a drink and order takeout, so the kitchen must stay busy. Our table was eventually ready and we were seated at lucky number 7.

Arriving at our table, the food was presented with a bread basket, cole slaw and tartar sauce in the center to share. The perch was crispy and delicious, the fries were crunchy, and the slaw was tasty. My sister had the broiled cod which was really good, and DeGreef's offers a variety of side options and we got french fries, broccoli bites, real deep fried cheese curds, and jalapeno poppers among all of us.

DeGreef's is a great location in the country for a tavern style fish fry. The establishment has been serving up food since I was a young boy and probably before that too. This place is kid friendly, and serves up a good fish fry. And for $10.00 for the perch place, it's hard to beat. After a long week of work, you always know that DeGreef Ends Here!
