Our Dining Club (5 couples, 10 people present for the May outing) booked a few tables at this place on a Tuesday night. Sevice was prompt and attentive the entire evening. We all had either the walleye or perch dinner. Plenty to eat and the fish were perfectly deep-fried with a very thin batter. Fries included with the meal were... More

We LOVE fish and after reading the reviews of Tackle Box II we had to give it a try during a recent visit to the presidential museum in Fremont. For all those who had a bad experience, we're sorry for you because our visit was great. We were a bit unsure about this place when we pulled in because from... More

Am surprised by the posted reviews. While the fish was good (nothing exceptional) the French fries were soggy. Wait staff was excellent. No tap beer. No craft or location beers. Overall disappointing.

If I was rating this based on food, I would have given it more stars but since I am rating this on overall experience 1 star is generous. We were treated rudely by management not once but 2 times without even prompting to speak to a manager. Our food arrived about an hour and 20 minutes after we ordered. We... More

This is a out of the way fun place to eat. The 1/2 pound of perch tasted good and the portion size was great. Take time to look at all the "stuff" on the walls and hanging from the ceiling. We were there on a Wednesday evening our server was very friendly and fast. We were told that on weekends... More

Found this on-line and wondered if the reviews could be true as we drove the back streets of Fremont. This is a gem along the river. Both of us had the lake perch dinner special and it was super good and a great price!!

A jazzy out of the way place in Fremont Ohio. My husband and I traveled there and around 3 PM had a fantastic walleye dinner. You get so much, we actually shared the portion with extra cole slaw and lots of fries. Unfortunately, the fries were slightly cold but the rest was great!! They get super busy during lunch and...
