Clean facility, good Friday fish fry. We waited at our table over 75 minutes for our food. Yes, they were busy but have enough staff to manage it. 50% chance that I'll return to give it one more try

Very good fish fry in a classic Wisconsin bar with a separate restaurant area. Dine in or have a beer while they make your order to-go.

This is a typical Wisconsin bar and restaurant. They have daily food and drink specials. Known for their fish fries. I liked the BBQ ribs and my husband enjoyed a steak and then bill seemed right. Very busy on a Friday night so call ahead.

Drove past this place quite a few times, and was pleasantly surprised. Great food, The New York Strip was delicious! Good service, There was some sort of party, and things were a little chaotic with the waitresses, Somewhat limited menu. The dinner entrees ranged from 19 dollars to 30 dollars.. Would definately return!

Maybe it was just an "off" night. There is a good sized menu (although no kids menu) but we had a hard time finding something we wanted. We ended up with ribs, shrimp scampi, Dandy chicken (chicken pieces, pasta, vegetables), and a burger. I've never seen shrimp scampi come with cream of mushroom soup over it. And the Dandy chicken...

The signage isn't bright and fancy but OH BOY was this some good food. The Steak sandwich and burgers are DELICIOUS with reasonable prices and friendly staff. Go earlier though if with family, because some of the bar regulars can get a little loud. Haha.

I tried the fish fry twice. The first time, the fish was wonderful, moist and not greasy. The second time, I tried it, it was soaked with grease. I had to take off the crust and just eat the fish. What a disappointment.

OMgosh, the steak melts in your mouth and the ribs are devouring in themselves. You get plenty of side choices with your meal and if not feeling like a full meal, try their wraps. So filling and delicious!!! It also helps that you can eat at a booth or at the bar. They also have daily happy hour, and daily... More

Jim Dandy's is without doubt my favorite restaurant in Oak Creek. I've taken the wife out to eat many times on those special occasions and haven't been remotely dissatisfied even once. The specials are always incredible and the surf and turf along with the Saturday Prime Rib have been outstanding. Service has always been good and yes it isn't the... More
