Milwaukee Fish Fry Tour

Why did the fish fry start? What made it so popular in Milwaukee?  Join Milwaukee Food & City Tours to find out! We are taking to the streets to sample our favorites around town with you. We can almost guarantee that there is one spot on this tour route that you've never been to before!

Included in the per person price, attendees will enjoy:
- A bus tour with 3 stops for half-sized fish fry portions and another Milwaukee classic for dessert- frozen custard! 
- Tour and donation provided to an area Catholic church
- Round trip transportation
- Narrated, guided tour fun

We only do this tour one time of year and it is very popular! We recommend that you book your tickets early.  Some of our fans had this to say: 

“Fun Times with Good Food & Drinks! Enjoyed three different locations with fried fish. Was great to have a bus take you around and the tour guide was good--informed, friendly and fun. Had not been to any of the venues before, so we now have a few more places to share with friends for our Friday night fish fries. The group we were with were a lot of fun, too. Lot's of food, and in fact maybe too much food - but you can always take some home.”

“Great Time! Had a great time, was very impressed with the size of food each stop provided. Tour guide was great, gave lots of back ground information about the origin of the Fish fry. Would highly recommend this tour.”
