The first year we went they had a ton of Friday Night Fish "Fan" signs, so they already are off to a good start. Ordering is simple, so not much signage needed. Either full or half plates, every plate is cooked to order.
Some great food. Every plate is cod, green beans, cole slaw, and mac-n-cheese. Green beans and cole slaw were great. The Cod very good. Nice and crispy coating, and hot and flaky on the inside. The Cod is fresh from the fryer, so its piping hot. Desserts were also excellent. I had the apple crisp.
Good value. $10 for full plates, $7 for half plates. Includes dessert. Drinks were $1 for soda and water. $1.50 for regular drafts, $2 for shock top drafts. $7/$10 for pitchers.
Friendly volunteers bring your plates to your table after you order. A little cozy on space. If you get there past 5:30, you could be waiting for a seat or getting to know your neighbors very well. If it's warm enough, there are a bunch of picnic tables outside.
3 out of 4. We ventured outside of our usual parish fish fries to try the American Legion in Soulard. Great fish fry. Excellent Cod and good service. If you are looking for a change of pace in the City, try the American Legion. Just be prepared for a cozy confines. However, if the weather is nice, this can be a great place to enjoy some outdoor seating.
