You forgot St. Bernadette.

Stony Creek fare is all you can eat if you order the fried cod, but priced by the plate for their shrimp and walleye dishes. Mixed green salad, bread and side dishes are all you can eat regardless of what you order as a main course. Every dinner includes dessert and tea or coffee.

Sorry ec but we just got tired waiting to have our order taken at Krauss's last night-Friday. There was only one poor girl waiting tables that we could see. We left after a couple of drinks, 45 minutes. We envisioned our food taking over another hour if it was taking that long just to get our order taken.

Blue Island Eagles on Grove St ( the bowling alley behind the post office on vermont) Yummy fish there too, and they serve kid size portion for the little ones as well...
