The carved sturgeon, plus great signs, and inside we enjoyed cheddar and summer sausage.[Jim H, 08/11/2011]
Looks as if the fish has lost his saddle...
Tons of cool stuff to see outside. If you are looking for an chance to get your picture taken on the back of a giant sturgeon, this is the place for you.[B.H. Dolmage, 11/10/2010]
The giant carved sturgeon, with saddle, sits out in front of the Valley Fish and Cheese at 304 South Prairie Street. The store alone is worth a visit with an excellent selection of Wisconsin cheeses and smoked fish, caught -- we were told -- mostly by the owner.
A picture of yourself sitting in the saddle atop the sturgeon is a wonderful souvenir of a road trip through southern Wisconsin.[Joan Henneberry, 11/15/2009]
