All-You-Can-Eat Fish Joint Picketed For 'False Advertising:' Bill Wisth Is 'An Idiot And A Loser,' Chuck's Place Owner Says

A disgruntled customer of a Milwaukee-area restaurant is protesting the establishment for saying the eatery is being stingy on its all-you-can-eat fish deal.  

Bill Wisth, who's a hefty 350 pounds and 6-foot-6, said all-you-can-eat fish fry restaurant Chuck's Place is practicing false advertising because it wouldn't let him eat more than 12 pieces of fish Friday, according to WTMJ-TV.

Wisth is pledging to picket Chuck's Place every Sunday over what he calls an unfair all-you-can-eat fish deal.

But Ted Hagen, owner of Chuck's Place in Thiensville, Wisc., told IBTimes that Wisth, known in the area as Big Bill, is taking advantage of the restaurant's deal and believed the picketing is just a publicity stunt.

Our response is he's an idiot and he's a loser, Hagen said of Wisth, a regular patron of Chuck's Place. We didn't run out of fish. We ran out of fish for him. If you lined up a thousand losers in the city of Milwaukee, he'd say, 'I'm No. 1.' You should see this circus act.

Hagen, who bought the restaurant from its namesake 12 years ago, said Wisth is routinely stingy when it comes to paying his bills at the restaurant but Hagen said Chuck's Place was always welcoming of Wisth despite his eating 15 to 20 pieces of Alaskan cod and sometimes stuffing sausage in his pants.

Our waitresses are creeped out by him but they're still nice to him, the owner said.

Wisth was kicked out of Chuck's Place on Friday when the establishment sent him home with eight pieces but Wisth still caused a stink.

I said, 'You're done, you're out of here,' Hagen recalled.

Hagen described how Wisth picketed Chuck's Place on Mother's Day with a sign written in pencil and claimed Wisth even picketed on private property, trying to encourage Chuck's Place customers to never set foot in the restaurant again.

You couldn't read it, Hagen said. You had to go up to the sign. I have 20/20 vision.

Yet for all of Wisth's complaints, he has nothing but good things to say about Chuck's Place's Chicago deep dish pizza.

He loves our food, Hagen said.
