Lent at Kegel’s Inn


Lent is the period of forty days which comes before Easter in the Christian calendar, traditionally a time of fasting and reflection. It is preceded by Shrove Tuesday, begins with Ash Wednesday and is not complete without a Fish Fry at Kegel's Inn. 


 Start - ash wednesday, march 6

End - good friday, april 19

Reservations during lent? 

Yes! We do take a few reservations………however, it is unlikely to get a reservation for a Friday night by calling the day of. We take reservations until 10 pm & usually fill up at least a week out. Not to fear, just walk-in! 

During Lent, we are not able to make reservations for parties larger than 6 people. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. 

Walk-In Availability?

Absolutely! Most of our dining room is geared to accommodate customers on a first-come, first-serve basis. We actually think the Wisconsin Fish Fry experience is more complete by just walking in and putting your name on the list. Then, enjoy your surroundings as you belly up to the bar, enjoy a Nitro old fashioned on tap, and revel in the company around you!


Please understand that due to high call volume for take-out, our 1 phone line may prevent you from reaching us. As an alternative, we encourage you to come inside to place your order. Wait times for orders to-go hover around 15-20 minutes from the time the order is placed. Just enough time for a German beer or an Old Fashioned!


Skip the wait! In an effort to reduce wait times on Lenten Friday nights, Kegel's Inn also provides Wednesdays as a less congested option to our Friday Night Fish Fry. Reservations are welcome and recommended.
