Jessica Tallinger and her husband Kevin Kuss opened Tallyís Tap & Eatery in August of 2013. Jessicaís grandparents have owned the building since 1978 when they opened a Boy Blue Ice Cream shop. Eventually, they turned it into a family restaurant named Tallingerís. When Jessicaís grandparents were ready to retire and put the building up for sale, Jessica and Kevin decided to take over and open their own restaurant. Wanting to tie in the family name and offer a more modern menu, Jessica and Kevin created Tallyís Tap & Eatery. Aspiring to be a step above a bar and grill, Tallyís Tap & Eatery offers homemade pub fare. Their famous ëStuffed Pretzelsí are unlike any pretzel youíve had before. The giant soft pretzel is stuffed with a delicious hot dip (like spinach and artichoke or buffalo chicken) and baked. The giant masterpiece of a pretzel is the size of a 14î pizza and is great for groups. Customers love ordering them to take home or to bring to parties. Every Friday, Tallyís Tap & Eatery hosts a Fish Fry available from 11:00 am through 10:00 pm. They serve four different plates of fish: hand beer battered cod, perch, steak and shrimp and baked cod. Customers also love the burgers, as Tallyís Tap & Eatery never freezes their meat or fish, which really makes a difference in fresh flavor. Sourcing local ingredients is important to Tallyís Tap & Eatery – all of their cheese is from a dairy farm outside of Green Bay, and they only sell Wisconsin craft beers. Tallyís Tap & Eatery features live music two nights a week, karaoke a third night, and have pool tables and dart boards to entertain you other nights. Every day there is a food item on special. Tallyís Tap & Eatery tries to appeal to as many people as possible but they only do things they are good at. Jessica explains she would rather offer 30 food items that are out of this world delicious than 100 items that are just okay. Everyone at Tallyís Tap & Eatery strives to make customers feel welcome. First-time customers leave surprised and excited to come back. Be sure to give this hidden gem a chance!
