Christ the King - 7324 Balson Ave, University City

(2 out of 4 Fishes)

Limited signs, although logical progression to get tickets and go through line. Simple ordering choices - adult cod, shrimp, or kids plate. Even with simple ordering, line was slow though. Styrofoam plates.


Best Cod of 2008 by far! Breading and seasoning were great, with just enough bite. Big piece of cod that was nice and flaky. Sides were OK. My fries were cold, but bread sticks and hush puppies were nice. Also cole slaw and green beans. Desserts were just OK.


$8 for adult plate, $4 kid plate, which included drinks (lemonade or fruit punch) and dessert! Portions were large.


Seating was a mix of round and rectangular tables. Crowded by 5:30. Good mix of people and a lively setting. The cafeteria is in the basement though and you had to clear your own table.

3 out of 4. Best Cod! Worth the trip just for the Cod. A little work on the speed of the line and the sides, and it could very easily be a 4 Fish, fish fry.

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.
