Great food at reasonable prices. We were starving and looking for a place to eat in Amherst before heading to the Central Waters Brewery. The pickings were slim, all we found was either Ambrosia or another small cafe down the block. Ambrosia had more cars parked in front so that's where we went. The place doesn't look the greatest from the street, but once you go inside, it's a nicely decorated bar, clean, with restaurant seating in the back. The menu had lots to choose from, sandwiches, burgers, pizza, etc. We both had the Black Angus 1/2 pound cheeseburger with fries for $6.50. They give you a choice of Cheddar, Swiss, American or Pepper Jack cheese on the burger, and a choice of three different kinds of fries. While the chive fries were nice and crispy, the home-style ones were a little soggy. The burgers were made to order, juicy, delicious, and a great deal for only $6.50. The draft beer selection included a Central Waters beer, so I tried the mudpuppy porter and it was good. The service was above average and the bathrooms were clean. They have daily specials and a Friday Fish Fry with walleye, perch, cod or blue gill. Closed Mondays.
There is nothing special here vs any other Wisconsin bar that serves fried food. There are so many other wonderful places to eat in WI. I had the broasted chicken - it was good but not great. My husband had the Friday fish - not good! Off flavor, way too much batter and breading. Came with baked potato and a stale round bun (I had to ask for a fresh one)
Our best meal in Wisconsin. The broaster chicken was one of the best fried chickens ever. It was just so juicy and it tasted like actual chicken (keep in mind that I'm not coming from broaster territory). The fish fry is every day, and the blue gill also had great flavor to it. Our other item was the cheese and broccoli fried things, which were also great. Considering that our entire table was full of shades of brown, next time I'd go for something not french fries as the side. Speaking of, it's interesting how they serve homemade fries, frozen fries, and chive fries... So, if they make homemade, why would anyone want anything different? That must mean that frozen are better, right? Well, yeah sorta. The frozen are crispier but comes with some moral baggage of buying the frozen... UNLESS maybe they freeze it themselves?? How could that be? Well, anyways, I would travel 45 minutes to come here. I'd get the broaster, fish fry, any appetizer, all the soups, maybe a steak and a burger. Cole slaw for the side. Beer. And I'd be happy.

The salad bar was good a lot of selection. seafood chowder was good too. Fish fry was ok the breading was not my favorite, just ok. Seems like the fish was under a heat lamp, not as crisp as I like. Bloody Mary was huge with a lot of condiments added.
