Restaurants in Racine, WI?

My husband and I will be in Racine tomorrow night and Saturday and wanted to know what restaurants are recommended for dinner/lunch. Looking for good food (non-chain places) at reasonable prices. We've been to Chancery and the like...

Any recs are appreciated!

    1. I live in Racine. So here goes.... If you are looking for atmosphere, the Sandpiper has halfway decent seafood/food for Racine and you can sit outside and watch the boats. For lunch on Friday/Saturday people seem to like Kewpee for cheeseburgers. I am not a huge fan but it is a Racine institution. For dinners, I like Waves downtown. It looks like a little bar but it actually has a huge creative menu for Racine. It is not A+ but I give the place an A for effort and they do have some good menu items. It is a little bit on the pricier side.

      For Fish Fry on Fridays I like the Hob Nob, it does have somewhat of an elderly smell to it but the Baked Cod is very good. So is the French Onion soup. And it does have a very nice view.

      For a good atmosphere and a pretty good menu with pretty good food, I recommend the Yardarm. On Fridays it is crowded but this is good for lunch and/or dinner
