Crawfish Junction

When?             February 2013

Classification?    “Popular Location for Music and Food”


Crawfish Junction takes its name from the river running through town – the Crawfish River. On Fridays, Crawfish Junction doesn’t just SERVE a fish fry – they OWN the fish fry.

Copious seating, incredibly high ceilings, and a friendly staff greeted us just a few Fridays ago. Our seats were the high bar type. We would have preferred a lower table, but we were starved, and didn’t want to wait. Thankfully, the “taller accommodations” were available not long after we arrived.

The Friday menu is deeper than the Crawfish River herself. Fried or baked cod, grilled salmon (herb butter or Asian sesame), Canadian walleye (fried, pan-fried or blackened), blue gill, Lake Erie perch (“fresh, never frozen!”), jumbo shrimp, sea scallops, lobster, ALLIGATOR, and, true to its namesake, CRAWFISH TAILS round out the Friday offerings.

All entrees are served with a choice of potato – the sweet potato fries are a standout, crisp on the outside, rich and smooth on the inside – creamy coleslaw and rye bread.

Can’t decide? Mix-n-match any 2 items for a few dollars more!

On our recent visit, we sampled the cod, salmon, perch and the huge walleye filet. We had to try the alligator, so we ordered the appetizer, which was served with a “zippy gator sauce.” It was tender and delicious. And how could we pass up the deep fried bacon appetizer?? (“Five large sinful strips of applewood smoked bacon, breaded and deep-fried, served with pancake syrup for dipping.”) Indescribable!!

The service was great, the beer was cold, and the food was outstanding at Milford’s Crawfish Junction! Just off I-94 and Hwy 89, five miles north of Lake Mills on Highway A, Crawfish Junction is the place to be on a Friday night or, for that matter, any time you are hungry!

Katie was the Executive Director of the Lake Mills Main Street Program from 2011 to 2019 and was the Secretary for the Jefferson County Tourism Council. In 2019, she retired to explore a new fashion degree and travel throughout the world. Katie was also a writer and contributed a great deal of copy for our website and printed guide. She was a great asset to our organization and we'll miss her!
