For fish & chips, I'll take a great homemade tartar sauce and malt vinegar, particularly Sarson's or Gilway.

Tartar sauce? For fish & chips? No thanks. I want malt vinegar.

Heavy on the Horseradish Cocktail Sauce works for me. I'd put Horseradish on my cereal or pancakes!

We got TTM'd last night, sort of.  We often go to the Gahanna Grill for lunch or a late afternoon drink.  Last Friday we saw folks at the bar getting batter fried fish and chips.  Nice big, thick pieces of fish........looked really good.  (Their food is always good and the portions are (too) large.)  So we stopped in yesterday afternoon for a beer and asked the bartender if we should get there early.......do they run out?  She said, "No, we always have plenty of fish."  We went over at 8PM, sat down, ordered a drink and the bartender comes over and says, "We're out of fish and chips."  WHAT?  He said, "Oh, we have plenty of fish, they ran out of the batter."  WHAT?  The batter mix comes in a 50 lb. bag......it's Friday......it's Lent.  Are you kidding me?  We left and had leftovers at home.  I'm still fuming!!!!

I'd also being fuming... after asking.
 
Fried polluck used to be served here a lot or was it haddock?  I just never see it/them mentioned anymore.
 
My favorite fried fish wasn't in a heavy batter and the restaurant no longer exists.  I was told it was a trash fish.  Didn't matter, it was incredible.
 
Jerked Whiting from J'net's Jamaican Restaurant.  What an incredible fish.  Lots of bones, but they were big bones and easily removed.

I have been seeing a lot of haddock lately.  The "trash fish" is probably pollock which is used to make fish sticks, fish for sandwiches at fast food places (like McDonald's), etc.  It's OK to eat but not nearly as good as cod or haddock. 
MH told me to get over it, but I'm STILL fuming about last night!

I would be, too. What kind of a chef/restaurant can't come up with some alternative to "batter mix?" You're right about the pollock, btw.

Wasn't Haddock what Howard Johnsons used for their fish fry years ago ??? Pollock was used because Cod got expensive. I'll pay extra for cod or Halibut..........Lisa, Michael must bring home a lot of fish from the Ohio coast.

As it happens, Mr. pnwchef from the north shore of Long Island Sound, Ohio's waters of western Lake Erie happen to be the Walleye Capital of the World. And the smallmouth bass fishing there is nonpareil.

I dunno, Bill.  If he's bringing fish "home" it's not this home.  Must be someone else's.  The only fish he brings home is from the supermarket!

It looks like Mr Walleye needs to put his hook where the smallmouth bass are.........

In my younger days as a fry cook for Hojo's in Mass. our Fish Fry night used Flounder fillet battered in-house for the fish in that AYCE 99 Cent dinner (1963-64)
 
More recently we shared some great Halibut with LleeChef on our Alaskan Safari a few years ago

I think that when we pulled up to the Seaview Café in Hope, AK, Al and Janet must have been thinking..........is she out of her mind?  From the outside the Seaview looks like a dive.  Heck, all of Hope, AK looks like a dive!  Ah, but inside there is some of Alaska's finest.........especially the halibut!!!

Yes, Perch followed by Walleye with cocktail sauce are my favorites. I love Cod and Haddock too though.

One of the few times I will credit a ff chain for having decent fish sandwiches is during the Walleye season, when many Culver's stores have them on the menu. Outstanding fish plates and sandwiches !!

I agree about the seasonal walleye, but their always on the menu "North Atlantic Cod" sandwich is the puniest/priciest excuse for a fish sandwich I've ever had.

On the advice of Michael, I have stopped there a couple of times.  Very very good.  They were fileting the fish while I was there and mine was fresh filleted and served.  Perch are small but delicious.  Great stop in Port Clinton.  Very scenic also.

Paul,
We're actually going up for two reasons.  The first being that the Great Lakes are 92% frozen solid and I would like to see Lake Erie around Marblehead Light completely frozen.  The second reason is obvious:  to eat at Jolly Roger!  We get one walleye platter and one lake perch platter and split.

I've never had walleye.  Maybe some day.
 
First time seeing a frozen lake was awesome.  I was stunned and still smiling, thinking about it.

Oh, mar, you just have to have walleye.  It's truly wonderful fish.
Did you see a Great Lake frozen?  I saw Lake Michigan frozen when I worked in Traverse City and of course many, many in Alaska, but never Lake Erie.  Tomorrow!

Never eaten Walleye either!  I'll stick to my favorites which are Salmon and Tilapia!  As a matter of fact I had some beautiful Salmon steaks smothered in lemon and capers last night served with white rice! 
Fish has gotten to be SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO  expensive as of late!!

Lisa, I did!  What's the lake near Buffalo? 
 
Walleye is now on my list.
 
Never had Grouper, either.  Do people fry grouper?  Is it known by a different name in the Western states?

Grouper can also be classified as Sea Bass.

The Great Lake near Buffalo is Lake Erie, same as Port Clinton, OH where we go to Jolly Roger's.  You must try walleye.........it's wonderful fish.  Grouper is also delicious but in the last 10 or so years, really hard to get, unless you're in Florida.  Overfishing.  I've only had grouper fried.

I doubt that the one in South Laguna Beach and the one in Port Clinton, OH have anything in common except the name!  Ours only has walleye and perch.  I'm sure that in CA you have many more choices that are equally as good!  So head to Jolly Roger for fish and chips!

There are a number of different groupers, ranging from red grouper all the way up to Warsaw grouper (also known as Jewfish -- really). They're warm water fish, and they're delicious. In fact, grouper is my second favorite salt water fish, right behind dolphin (which some people call mahi mahi [which only makes sense if one is speaking Hawaiian] or dorado -- Spanish). My favorite ways to cook grouper fillets are sautéed and broiled, in butter and lemon.
