Culver’s Guests Getting Hooked During Lent

Limited Time Only Walleye joins Guest Favorite Hand-Battered Cod

PRAIRIE DU SAC, Wis. – February 11, 2013 – Wild-caught from just north of the Arctic Circle in the icy waters of the North Atlantic, Culver’s North Atlantic Cod has long been a guest favorite. Beginning today, Culver’s tender, crispy Northwoods Walleye joins the menu for a limited time. Each specialty is hand-cut, hand-battered and golden-fried only after it has been ordered.

“Since the first Culver’s opened in Sauk City, Wisconsin, in 1984, we have been committed to serving great-tasting fish,” said Craig Culver, co-founder and CEO of Culver’s. “By cooking to order our fish sandwiches and dinners we ensure the highest-quality taste experience for our guests. I wouldn’t think of doing it any other way.”

While Culver’s North Atlantic Cod is available year-round, the crowd-pleasing Walleye is featured for a limited time only to ensure its safe and responsible sourcing. Culver’s fishery resources in the clear Canadian waters and in the icy Barents Sea are monitored and protected from overfishing and managed for long-term sustainability.

Northwoods Walleye and North Atlantic Cod are available as dinners with the choice of two sides, such as Culver’s own Cole Slaw and signature Crinkle Cut Fries, along with a warm dinner roll and family-recipe tartar sauce with olives, capers and sweet relish. Both are also available as sandwiches in Value Baskets with a side and a beverage.

“Cod or Walleye, I think we have the best fish in the business,” added Craig.
