For over five decades the Wendt family has proudly owned, operated, and served award-winning lake perch at Wendt's on the Lake. Wendt’s is the go-to Friday Night Fish Fry destination, but if the Friday night crowd isn’t for you, join us any other day because our perch is served daily. Our menu continues to grow, and take out is always available. Of course, we think our food tastes best with a view of beautiful Lake Winnebago.

Wendt's accepts CASH and CHECKS ONLY. We are unable to process credit or debit cards. We DO have an ATM available for your convenience.

A Wisconsin Tradition for over 50 years Est. 1962
