Place for comfort food:


No matter how it’s made, Dady-Oh’s food certainly doesn’t taste like it belongs on a diet plate. Luscious grilled cheese sandwiches served on home-baked tomato bread, char-grilled burgers and an award-winning Friday night fish fry are some of the specialties of the house.

The most requested sandwich is the barbecued pork. Daily specials act as litmus tests for future menu items. “Anything with a rave review will end up on the menu,” says owner Bill Krueger, who along with his wife, Deborah, bought the former Paul’s Metropolitan diner at 250 W. Broadway in Waukesha in 2001 and turned it into a home for “eclectic American” food.

Freshness is a hallmark of Dady-Oh’s, which bakes its own bread and hard rolls. The restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch and eight kinds of fish on Friday nights.
