Welcome to the 2021 Fish Fry Season (Sort of)

 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.

Unfortunately with COVID, we'll be missing that this year.

It'll be sad.

However, we can still support our parish and volunteer Fish Fries with takeout. And here at Friday Night Fish we'll be sharing highlights of our take out adventures! Plus, don't forget to support your local restaurants! We usually shun restaurants for fish during Lent, but they need our support more than ever!

We won't have any "official" reviews this year. We'll just try and support as many parishes and restaurants as we can. Follow us on Facebook and Instagram all fish fry season (and share your fish fry photos with #STLFridayNightFish)

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.
