How does it feel winning the Best Seafood category?

“That’s great. We work our butts off to do it,” said Bert Meyers, who co-founded Beer & Fish, as well as Dempsey’s and Wurst Bier Hall with his wife, Lisa, and brother Klaus.

What’s made Beer & Fish such a success?

“People are loving our cod fish and chips and lobster mac and cheese. Our pasta dishes do well and so do our tacos. We just started a lobster ravioli and a wild rice risotto,” Meyers said. “We sell more than 300 pounds of cod a week and 300 pounds of walleye fingers a week. And 100 pounds of halibut. That’s a lot for a fish shop.”

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
