The Chunky Chicken fills its menu with creative variations of well-seasoned chicken and seafood dinners and homemade sides. The eatery's signature chicken chunks are marinated in special seasonings for two days, then breaded and deep-fried. The Chunky Bowl ($5.95 with a small drink) piles chicken chunks over a mound of corn and mashed potatoes, erupting with molten gravy and cheddar cheese. Chicken chunks are available in a variety of other incarnations, nestled inside a wrap or pita, sandwiched in french bread, cheese, and mayo, drenched in barbecue sauce, or dressed in a monocle and top hat ($4.95 each, or $6.95 in a combo with a small side and medium drink). Surf-hailing selections include a basket of crisp popcorn shrimp ($4.95–$6.95), and the fisherman's platter, which arrives weighted with cod, walleye, and shrimp ($8.95–$10.95).
The catering menu feeds families, parties, and one starving black bear with buckets of up to 200 pieces of fried chicken ($13.95–$207.95), half pans of handcrafted mac 'n' cheese ($18) or extra-large servings of onion rings ($7.50), ideal for proposing to extra-large onions.
