2024 - The Year of Awesome Fish Fries!

Can you believe Friday Night Fish has been around for 15 years! Over 680,000 page views! Over 60 unique fish fries visited!

We know you don't visit Friday Night Fish for our excellent writing prose ("good solid fish fry"), or modern website design (last updated in 2011). You come because you love fish fries! We love fish fries! We all love the fish fry community!

80% of what makes a great fish fry is the sense of community. Whether in a new parish hall, a school cafeteria, or a church gymnasium, sharing fried Cod with friends, family, parishioners, visitors, volunteers, and fish fry reviewers over the backdrop of laughter, conversations, and sometimes music - makes Fish Fry season special.

We think 2024 will be an awesome year for fish fries! 2023 was pretty excellent, but every year can get even better!

A few reminders:

  • Don't ask us who's having a fish fry this week or that week.  We don't keep track. Try the fish fry maps at KSDK and elsewhere.  
  • We still love your Fan Sign photos!  We always welcome a new fan sign photo (and will post on our Facebook/Instagram page)!

See you at a fish fry!

PS - We had the whole pandemic to update the website.... Still waiting....  Sorry!

Year End Reviews

Sometimes it is hard to compare fish fries from year to year. Comparing that Cod from 2014 to 2008 can be a little tough. With that in mind, below is a yearly re-cap for each of the following years. We got a little busy in 2015, then 2017-2019 went by in a blur, so we are missing a few years, so sorry!

Fan Poll Winners - Best Fish Fry

Every year Friday Night Fish hosts a fan poll to crown a yearly fan favorite Fish Fry. It's a two step process with Round 1 selecting five finalists, and Round 2 voting from the final five to crown the yearly fan champion. So get ready every year for the annual poll and get your supporters voting for your favorite fish fry! We had some voting "irregularities" in 2014, so we discontinued the poll (for now).

For a recap of past winners see Past Fan Poll Winners.
