Wisconsin man pickets restaurant after being cut off from all-you-can eat special.

A Wisconsin man is upset that an all-you-can-eat fish fry didn't live up to its name.

At 6'6" and 350 lbs, Bill Wisth admits he's a big guy who can pack it away more than most.

"It's false advertising," Wisth said after being cut off during an all-you-can-eat fish fry at Chuck's Place in Thiensville.

He was there Friday when the restaurant cut him off after he ate a dozen pieces.

"Well, we asked for more fish and they refused to give us any more fish," recalled Wisth.

The restaurant says it was running out of fish and patience; arguing Bill has been a problem customer before.

They sent him on his way with another eight pieces, but that still wasn't enough.

He was so fired up, he called the police.

"I think that people have to stand up for consumers," said Wisth.

He wasn't done.

He came back two days later with a picket sign.

Elizabeth Roeming is a waitress there and says they've tried to work with Bill over the years -- like letting him have a tab he still hasn't paid off.

Customers are running to the restaurant's defense as well.

Bill isn't backing down, saying his fish fry fight isn't over.

Still, in the end, even he had something nice to say.

"They do have like some of the best pizza in town if you like deep dish pizza," said Wisth.

Bill Wisth says he will picket every Sunday until the restaurant rethinks what happened.
