We have a new best fish fry. These guys were the most efficient place we’ve been to. Plus, they made some of the best sides we’ve had. Nina said that the cole slaw was as almost as good as her mom’s. High praise. The fish was good. But the sides. Mac and cheese was good. The pasta e fagioli was really nice. Apple sauce. And a chocolate cake that was so tasty.


On a Friday afternoon with the screen doors open (fixed thanks to the common sense ingenuity of Nina) and the breeze and the sun, this was the perfect meal.

There’s one week of Lent left. We would advise you all to go to this fish fry, take it home and enjoy it with someone special to you. You will not be let down.

  2. My favorite fish fry of all time – the cake is awesome! I used to be able to walk here when I lived in Swissvale. Somehow I didn’t get mugged.
