(1 out of 4 fishes)
No signs outside and just a couple of menu signs inside. We were able to find the entrance easily enough however. Ordering was pay first get your order slip filled out. Here they even get your order slip to the detail of what kind of bread you want. Hardly any line at 5:15, but picked starting around 5:30. I didn't quite understand the difference between the fillet and combo choices, but once we got our order slip filled out, getting our food went smoothly. Styrofoam plates and even cups. No visible recycling. Although bulk tartar, cocktail sauce and ketchup.
Pre-breaded Cod triangles! Our first for the season. I had to get the tartar sauce. Not bad for pre-breaded Cod, nice and hot. My wife's baked Cod was very good. Cole slaw was a highlight. It was nicely spiced. Other sides included green beans, spaghetti, apple sauce, and au gratin potatoes. Shrimp and fish sandwiches also available. Kids pizza available. Good selection of desserts. Not sure percentage of homemade versus store bought.
Good value. $7.50 for adult fillet and $8.50 for adult combo (although I didn't really understand the difference. Shrimp dinner was $8.50. Dinners included two sides and drinks (tea or punch). Desserts were $0.50. So for our family of five it was $27.50. Kids 9-inch pizza was $3.50. Ala carte sides for $1.00. Draft beer $2.
Nicely crowded, but not too crowded. Friendly volunteers and smiling kids were helping clear tables. It is always great to see volunteers of all ages helping out at the fish fry. Long tables with real chairs. The only downside to the long rows of tables was trying to squeeze into some of the seats toward the middle of the rows.
2.5 out of 4. Nice neighborhood fish fry. At this point in the fish fry season, after 4 weeks of fried Cod, having pre-breaded Cod was a downer, and nothing really jumped out in terms of uniqueness. But overall was a nice fish fry with friendly volunteers and little wait time. Even at 5:30, although it was crowded, it was a fairly short wait to get your food.
