Since the early 1920’s, Fessler’s Original Sauce has been enjoyed by fish and seafood lovers throughout Michigan. Fisherman would bring their fresh catch to Frank’s Tavern, a small speakeasy located on the shores of Lake Ponemah. Their catch would be prepared, served with fries, slaw and the “Fish Sauce also know as Fessler’s Original Sauce.” As the years went by, paintings such as this one (bottom left) were displayed all over Frank’s Tavern in Fenton, MI. Legend has it that long ago, this unknown artist traded his painting for dinners at the tavern. (Now that’s truly a starving artist!)
Fry, bake or grill your favorite fish…but don’t forget the Fessler’s!
