My wife had fish and chips at the Maine Diner last week. I got a bite, and they were great. MD uses fish from closer to the head of a larger fish, so it is a nice thick piece. So many places around here serve the tail, or more precisly, a filet taken from the back of the fish. The tail is,IMO, not as good.

McNie's in Etobicoke, ON has sublime fish n' chips. I can't eat that stuff anymore, but I have some fond memories of eating there. *^^*

Had a pretty good F&C at Canterbury Ales in Huntington LI NY yesterday. Got the lead from Chowhound and followed their advise to avoid the Oyster Bay location. Had Pilsner Urquell on tap to go with it. Very nice!

Can you get some tail at Susan's? Maybe you have to be nice...

No comment on the other end of the fish.

The best I've had is at the "Fish Fry" in Nassau, Bahamas but it was cracked conch with fries. Here in Kentucky, well you know we're not exactly known for fish and chips but the fish and chips at the King Fisher in Louisville are pretty darn good.

Doug's Fish Fry in Skaneateles, NY (pronounced skinny-atlas)...also in Mattydale, East Syracuse and Cortland, NY

The Skaneateles location is the original, and the one I have frequented the most. There is a restaurant review in this site about the Cortland location (which I've never been to). Looks pretty much like the same food as the one in Skaneateles.

The one in Mattydale (North Syracuse) can be a bit greasy imo. East Syracuse location is good.

sides are excellent, soup is excellent, fish is excellent. Service is ok.

The best fish & chips I've had lately was at Norma's Ocean Diner in Seaside, Oregon. You have to decide if you want cod, albacore, salmon, halibut or as I got, a combination of them. It was great being able to sample them all, with the halibut being my favorite. Orders also come with good fries and cole slaw.

Capers Steakhouse in Detroit makes the best Catfish I've ever had. They always season it goods and even give you a lemon to put pazazz in your fish. They also have a location in Mt. Clemens, MI (suburb NE of Detroit)

I have to put in a vote for Brit's Pub in downtown Minneapolis:

http://www.britspub.com/index.php

While I can't say I've had a whole lot of fish and chips, I would be REAL surprised if what these guys serve wasn't a good example. I'm not sure I've ever seen any fried food that nailed GBD quite like their fish and chips (GBD = golden brown and delicious).

Outstanding.

Whats really funny is that their servers actually look really British and I can't even tell you what a British person is supposed to look like :) You'll have to see for yourself.

I lived in London on and off for 20 years. The very best fish and chips I ever had was at a place called "Sea Fresh" on Bury Street in Pimlico. Not far from Victoria Station. You couldn't miss it because there was always about 20 taxie's out front
double and triple parked.
It is owned by Greek people (that explains it) and they use peanut oil for their frying and also change the oil frequently.
They sold all kinds of fish to fry but the cod and haddock were the best.
Does anyone out there know this place too?

A pretty good cod and chips can be had at Culver's for those craving such as a meal and lacking authentic alternatives. I've been really happy when ordering their cod dinner plate (also includes decent slaw and a small roll). Excellent, flaky cod and a mound of pretty good fries. Tartar sauce, lemon, malt vinegar all gratis. Any port in a storm, so to speak. - Rusty

The fish & chip pic today on the main page looks great. Upon further scrutiny of the other pics, the building (inside & out) looks to be an old Arthur treacher's.

BTW--the brand has been revived somewhat & treacher's are in the NY/NJ area. I don;t think there are stand alones, they seem to be branded with Nathan's & Kenny Rogers chicken. The fish is comparable to Arthur's of my childhood, but the shrimp & chips are nathan's shrimp (not batter dipped). I don't recall them having chicken & chips & I was saddened to see no Lemon luv pies opn the menu.

Had a very good Fish & Chip last week in Red Bank NJ at the Dublin house. Nice beer batter!

Since this topic has been active, I'll say here what I've mentioned at other times: Ye Olde English Fish and Chips in Woonsocket, RI, is extraordinary. The name may be silly, but it is fitting: the place was founded in 1922 by an emigre from Yorkshire. The batter is rich and offsets the slight sweetness of the fish perfectly, while the chips are flavorful with just the right mix of crispyness and softness. A special treat they offer is the fishcake, a thin piece of fish in between slices of potatoes, dipped in batter and then fried together in one piece. The potatoes almost melt into the fish, blending the flavors. It's like fish and chips in one, really special. The only complaint I have is their short hours - closed Sunday and Monday, and most evenings by 5 or 6 (Fridays until 8, I believe.) But well worth it - best I've had, including in England. And if you have room, it's just a short drive to[url='http://www.wrightsdairyfarm.com/']Wright�s Dairy Farm.[/url]

Here�s a picture with chips in the foreground, a couple of fishcakes in back at left and fish and chips back right. Man, I need to get up there soon....

My favorite for Fish 'N' Chips is Ye Olde English in Woonsocket, RI. I've yet to find any other like it anywhere in the USA. Well worth the trip if you are ever in the Boston-Worcester-Providence triangle. I was born and raised in Wonnsocket and in the 1950s and '60s there were any number of fish 'n' chip shops around the city to satisfy Catholics on meatless Fridays. Sad to say, but these little shops are all but gone. Ye Olde English remains. Every time I visit home, I get my fix. Currently, I live in OR but have yet to taste anything as satisfy as Olde English!

My two favorites would have to be The Argyle & The Thistle both in
Kearny,NJ. When it's possible, it's great to enjoy the meal at either
restaurant,especially when they serve the fish right from the deep fryer,the outside crunchy and golden and the fish cooked just right, along with the fries and coleslaw a very satisfying meal.

My gosh, that picture of fish and chips looks mouth-watering. The fish looks good and crispy and the fries look the way I like them. Whish I was in RI for lunch today; but guess I'll have Mickey D's! Just ain't the same is it?

Fish & Chips one of favorites. Best I've had is at Skagway Fish Co restaurant in Skagway, Alaska. Kind of out of the way, but the deep fried fresh halibut is always cooked to perfection, the frys always fresh & hot, and downed with an Alaskan Amber beer, it's a combo that can't be beat. Long time ago, in Greenwich, Ct, The Clam Box had great fish & chips. I think they used haddock.

Can't wait!

Another really good place for Fish & Chips is Baxter's in Hyannis, Mass. I just ate there for the first time a few weeks ago. I thought $15.95 was a lot to pay for an order, but once I tasted how good it was, I wasn't complaining. A cup of the chowder and sitting at a picnic table overlooking the water completed the memorable meal.

I had the fish & chips there years ago and they were good. Couldn't tell you what they're like now.

If any of you are in London again, I'd suggest you come to The Golden Hind (http://www.london-eating.co.uk/2412.htm). It's an authentic old "chippy" in a lovely area, and everything on the menu us great. Be sure to get some mushy peas (as it just isn't as good without!)

Fish 'n' Chips wise, the best kept secret in New Jersey is the Tops Diner, East Newark, New Jersey. It's a special and they only prepare it on Fridays.

What makes this accomplishment particularly interesting is that the Tops, which is a far better diner than any for many miles around, is in rather close proximity to Kearny, New Jersey, home of the revered Argyle and Thistle restaurants, each renowned for their fish 'n' chips.

Well, I'm not one to venture on sacrilege by saying the Tops's rendition of fish 'n' chips is better than Argyles's and Thistles's. But I heartily suggest you give it a try. Judge for yourself.

The special is a soup to nuts deal. Bring an appetite. If they have the blueberry cobbler the Friday you're there, make that your dessert choice as part of your meal. Boy, is it good!

One note, though. While the fish is excellent, and presented in a generous portion of two good-sized filets, the chips are French fries. They're good, but, at no extra charge, you can have the superior waffle fries instead. Good choice. You'll be back.

The chip shop in Dunoon, Scotland at Holy Loch. Only real fish and chips I've ever had. Hot fish and chips, coarse salt, and malt vinegar. Outstanding!

I have to agree with Spadoman. Mac's Fish and Chips on Larpenteur Ave in St Paul Minnesota does a great job with their Halibut and Chips. Their Chips get soggy if you try to do take out, ok if you eat in. The Halibut is great.

Anyone in the Fort Worth, TX area know of ANY good fish and chip joints besides Zeke's? Any good seafood restaurant recommendations would be great as well. I live in the Keller/Alliance area and don't know of any good places!

Thanks,

Well the secret is out,I took ScreenBear's advice and tried the fish n chips at Top's diner in East Newark and it was a great meal. I've lived in Kearny for most of my life and have been to Top's quite a few times,but never had the fish n chips,due to the fact that the Argyle and The Thistle were always a staple of the area for so many years,but the meal at Tops diner included soup,salad,coleslaw and the fish and chips,and believe me the quality of the meal is just as good or maybe even a little better.Thanks again for the tip.

I hit The Dubliner, an Irish restaurant near Union Station in DC, after the Cherry Blossom Parade for a couple Irish Car Bombs and Fish and Chips. Both were excellent! didn't bring my camera, so no pics. But it may be the best Fish and Chips in DC.
Corned beef sandwich, cream of potato soup and shepherd's pie were all smashing successes as well at our table.

Love A Salt & Battery in the West Village, NYC. They've got great cod and haddock. The chips are just greasy enough and very tasty doused with some malt vinegar and piled on a buttered roll to make my own "chip butty". For some reason though, I'm addicted to their deep fried chicken chunks. They're crispy, greasy, and have a slight curry taste to them that really elevates them beyond any chicken tender I've ever had.

Dubliner's far from having the best F&C in DC. More like mediocre. Elephant & Castle, the English pub/restaurant off Penn is a bit better, though not your traditional F&C plate. The best places I tried are actually both in Alexandria. One is a place called Eamon's, which is pretty authentic: http://www.eamonnsdublinchipper.com/ , but the best I've tried, in my opinion, is at Theismann's: http://www.joetheismanns.com/main.html

But it's a matter of taste/opinion I suppose.

I tried Wendell's Pub in Westerville, OH near Columbus a few months ago and the fish and chips were the highlight of the menu. But the real story about Wendell's is ther national recognition for being the Number 1 place to go Number 2.

I'll second Eamonn's in Alexandria, Va. Cathal Armstrong (of Restaurant Eve fame) is from Ireland and this chipper has some excellent fish and excellent chips. People rave about the skate but I've only had the cod.

AND they have deep fried Snickers bars (and other candy too).

Thanks,

Kevin

Arthur Treacher's is excellent here in Lake Worth (South Florida). It is located in a "Miami Subs Grill", along with Nathan's & Kenny Rogers....it's PERFECT every time! (No kidding!)

Lets see,--it was the "Summer of Love"--San Francisco--we were all flat broke most of the time--didn't
have a kitchen--heck 'we didn-t have a house to put it in --but if you could panhandle a buck--or ontimidate some tourist to pay you for taking your picture--there was a fish and chips place right near the end of the street--about a block and a half from the entrance to Golden Gate Park that was wonderful!!--and that buck would get you na big old newspaper cone full of greay potatos and two gig hunks of fish! Have no idea what the name of the place was---and it probably wasnt the best fish and chips in the world--but it kept a lot hippies alive.---and i liked it!!

The best that I had was at a little fish and chips stand outside of the NCO club at Alconbury AB in England. It was outstanding. Wrapped in newspaper and sprinkled with malt vinegar, it was absolutely outstanding. I had some in London too. They were all good but not as good as the one on Alconbury.

It's possible I have posted my response to this topic on one of the previous pages.
The very best fish and chips I have ever had was at, "Sea Fare" in the Pimlico section of London near Victoria Station. If you are in London, just ask your cab driver. Chances are, judging by the many cabs, double and triple parked outside, he's probably a frequent diner there himself.
They use very fresh fish fried in peanut oil. The oil is changed very often so the fish has a fresh and clean taste.
And, it's a large airy space with comfortable seating-unlike most "chippies".

Odd request from a noob but ... anyone ever just try to make and fry the batter from F&C Mixes?

I am obsessed with the little batter crumbs, or cracklin' as they say in the resturants, that are scattered about on my plate when I go to the chain places like LJS of Captain D's, I often request an extra carton of them on the side. Far better than potato chips and so daggum sinfully good too. I'd be forever grateful if anyone could give me such a recipe for a delicious batter to fry and crumb up!

Oh, as for a good place - I often go to this kiosk when festival time comes about in my city. They makes some delicous F&C and even have dessert like batter dipped Snickers, which I have yet to try.

Assault and Battery in Greenwich Village New York makes a very authentic,very good Fish & Chips, along with mushy peas. And you get to finish off with a deep fried Mars Bar.


Also posted by billyboy, this place was just featured on Bobby Flay's show Throwdown and thankfully Flay lost. It's on my list to try.

My favorite for Fish 'N' Chips is Ye Olde English in Woonsocket, RI. I've yet to find any other like it anywhere in the USA. Well worth the trip if you are ever in the Boston-Worcester-Providence triangle. I was born and raised in Wonnsocket and in the 1950s and '60s there were any number of fish 'n' chip shops around the city to satisfy Catholics on meatless Fridays. Sad to say, but these little shops are all but gone. Ye Olde English remains. Every time I visit home, I get my fix. Currently, I live in OR but have yet to taste anything as satisfy as Olde English!


Thanks for the tip. I was visiting a friend in Woonsocket on Saturday and realized that he lived right down the street from Ye Olde English on South Main. It might have been the best fish and chips I've had in the US along with Westfair Fish & Chips in Westport, CT (McDonough's in Galway, Ireland is still tops - at least for the fish). The fish was great - tender, flaky with a good crispy crust. The tater sauce was excellent (and I believe homemade)and the chips were very meaty and pretty crispy, though not as crispy as they should be, especially the ones that were sitting underneath the fish. Still I really enjoyed these chips, this being said despite the fact that I am not a big fan of chips/french fries in general. Also, the staff was very friendly, helpful, and quick with their service even though they were closing right after I walked in the door. Highly recommended if you are in the area.

The Bayside Restaurant, near the town beach and the Audubon preserve in Westport, MA, has the best fish and chips I've tasted. They use cod, or at least they used to.

They also have some unusual items such as a delicious homemade Indian pudding.

Personally,
I prefer the fish and chips out of the paper.
As tm199(?) above alluded to, fish and chips are very in-expensive down here in New Zealand.
I've just had a feed of them, man am I full!
Cost me all of NZ$9.00.

Thanks to the wonder of Google Map's Streetview function, those who have not been fortunate enough to visit the Auld Sod can now at least see McDonagh's (don't feel bad about the misspelling, I got also it wrong in an earlier post in this thread).  There are also numerous shots of the interior, and multiple reviews.  Sorry, no shots of the food.

I loved Arthur Treacher's.. That where I learned about malt vinegar on F&C's  (we didn't know about such things here in WV!) I really liked the 'chips'. That my favorite form of french fries!
