All-you-can-eat fish? Not for this customer.

A restaurant customer in Ozaukee County is protesting after he was cut off from the establishment's all-you-can-eat fish fry.

At 6 feet 6 inches and 350 pounds, Bill Wisth acknowledges he can pack away more fish than the average guy. But, Wisth wants Chuck's Place in Thiensville to live up to its all-you-can-eat advertising.

After Wisth ate a dozen pieces of fish last Friday, a waitress refused to bring more. The restaurant says it was running out of fish and patience. They sent Wisth on his way with eight more pieces. Wisth called the village police. And he came back two days later with a picket sign.

Waitress Elizabeth Roeming tells WTMJ-TV that they've tried to work with Wisth over the years, even letting him run a tab that he hasn't paid off.
