Reel It In: Culver's Fresh Northwoods Walleye Is Back for a Limited Time Only

PRAIRIE DU SAC, WI--(Marketwire - March 21, 2011) - The Northwoods Walleye, a traditional guest favorite at Culver's restaurants, will hook fans again this Lenten season as it's added to Culver's seafood round-up. The Northwoods Walleye receives the same royal treatment as all Culver's fresh fish, which is to be lightly hand-battered and golden fried once the guest orders it, never before.

"Our commitment to cooked-to-order meals includes our popular Northwoods Walleye, which is battered and cooked after the guest places an order," said Jim Doak, Culver's executive chef. "We hand batter it and fry it to perfection, creating a big flakiness that can only be found in top-quality fish filets. We have guests who anticipate the arrival of our walleye all year."

The Northwoods Walleye dinner is offered with Culver's signature sides including its own cole slaw, Crinkle Cut Fries and a roll. Culver's also features the Walleye Filet Sandwich with a special recipe tartar sauce, crisp shredded lettuce and real Wisconsin cheddar cheese served on a lightly buttered, toasted hoagie roll.

Additional seafood items on Culver's menu that are available year-round include:

  • The North Atlantic Cod Filet, hand-selected, fresh premium cuts, lightly battered by hand and cooked to order
  • The Butterfly Crispy Shrimp, delicately crumb breaded and fried to order. Culver's is one of the only quick service restaurants to offer deliciously fresh jumbo shrimp

Guests at Culver's restaurants can enjoy fresh Northwoods Walleye through the end of April. Culver's offers this favorite for a limited time to ensure that sourcing is sustainable, responsible and safe.
