Our Lady of Providence - 8866 Pardee Rd, Crestwood, MO

(3 out of 4 Fishes)

Signs on Watson and every corner got our hopes up for good wayfinding, but menu wasn't well displayed. Plates were styrofoam. Service and line were fast, however.


Cod at first seemed average, but grew on me. Its breading was subtle. Sides were OK. Potato salad was from containers. Other sides included cole slaw, fries, green beans, and mac and cheese. Other entrees included frog legs, jack salmon, and shrimp. You could also mix and match.


$7.50 for adult plates, $5 for kids. Free for kids under 4! Dessert included, but only water and coffee included.


Crowded by 5:30. A group was actually waiting for our table so they could find a place to sit. Older crowd seemed a little more quiet. Adults and kids cleaned the tables. Cafeteria for seating plus overflow seating in classrooms.

2.5 out of 4. Good, but maybe my expectations were too high. Frog legs were unique, but food was just OK. Atmosphere may have been hurt by 1960's style cafeteria.

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).
