Our Fish Fry Review Crew visited The Edgewater Supper Club after hearing some great things about the food and new owners from other happy customers.
We were not disappointed!
Our meal started off with good rye bread from BonTon Bakery in Jefferson, followed by a round of the Edgewater Clam Chowder. Oh my! The chowder was so good – so creamy – so buttery… In fact, one of our Review Crew members called in an order for a HALF GALLON of said Clam Chowder to be picked up the following week. Yes, it was that good…
The fish options on the night we arrived (each Friday might have slightly different specials) included Fried Jumbo Perch, Baked or Fried Cod, and Salmon with Roasted Pecan Butter. Our group was small that night – just three – and two of us ate the perch (yes, it was truly “jumbo!”), while the third reviewer ordered the salmon.
The perch was delicious – flaky and tender – but it was the salmon and accompanying roasted pecan butter that stole the show. The reviewer who ordered this dish declared it to be the “…best salmon I’ve ever eaten!” as well as “My favorite dinner of our fish fries to date!”
Now THAT’S a resounding recommendation!
The Edgewater Supper Club prepares meals with local ingredients, and many local talents – such as BonTon Bakery and Morsels by Marly – contribute to the menu. Although the Edgewater did not have any pies from Morsels by Marly that evening, we will be back to get our selection soon!
The Edgewater Supper Club reopened in 2013, thanks to Bill and Vicki Millis from Under the Oaks farm in Milton. The restaurant is located on the Rock River between Fort Atkinson and Jefferson on Highway K.
Until we meet again,
