The Country Squire's battered cod and perch are some of the best served anywhere in southeastern Wisconsin.The fresh, sweet fish has been for a dip in beer batter then plunged into a sizzling fryer. Beside it are soft, tender potato pancakes with just a touch of onion; applesauce; rye bread; and homemade cole slaw. You're talking classic Milwaukee fish fry.

The main attraction at this popular road house is excellent thin-crust pizza prepared by owners Dom and Phil Demarinis, who also operate a popular pizza restaurant in Bay View. Other attractions: reasonably priced pasta dishes; more elaborate entree specials; and a great view of Lake Denoon.
S91 W27850 Highway ES, Vernon (262) 363-5191
When Heaven City restaurant closed in February, many diners from southeastern Wisconsin mourned its loss. For more than a decade, the restaurant, which showcased duck, trout, veal and other ingredients from Wisconsin, had been a destination for fine dining since the 1980s. In May, the restaurant, which is housed in a 1920s Florida-style mansion, re-opened under its old name, but with a new operator, Julie Beronja, at the helm. Beronja is the restaurant's manager; Jimmy Wade (no relation to the late Steven Wade Klindt) is the restaurant's chef.
Romero's Martini Lounge
W171-S7505 Lannon Drive, Muskego (262) 679-0532
In the mood for a crunchy chimichanga? How about a New York strip steak? Pizza? Broasted chicken? All those items are on the menu of this casual 40-seat restaurant that Rick Romero and JoAnne Tobin opened in September. The dining room, which is connected to a larger bar, specializes mostly in Mexican dishes with chimichangas and enchiladas among the most popular entrees.
