Fish Fry

Unread postby waborat » Mon Mar 01, 2010 1:27 pm

They pop up all over this time of year...

Where do you go to get your fix?

My faves on the east side:

-Brennan's in Grand River
-Capp's in Leroy
-Chester's Tavern in Painesville

Nothing like a Friday night AYCE golden-brown filets w/slaw, fries, hush puppies & 7 or 8 brewski's to wash it all down

Recher Hall in Euclid used to be the nuts. Same with Simcic's in Euclid. As a kid I'd look forward to every Friday night during Lent (although I wasn't yet catholic) because the family would go to one of those places with my maternal grandfather.

My dad hated that man. So I was always entertained and well-fed.

Now that I've fled that area of Cuyahoga County I prefer Sammy K's (the old Antioch Inn) in Perry.

Better still, this past Friday I batter dipped what perch I had left in the freezer and did it up myself. That was outstanding.

Haven't been to the Antioch in years...

Ironically, we just made up the last of our walleye from last summer...

Prefer perch though

I concur...

It's good broiled as well and not as filling...

My SiL is a bartender up there and she gets it for us to freeze

Has been a Friday ritual for us for about three years running.

I tried the Fish Fry at the Holy Angels Church on RT 306 in Bainbridge. It was absolutely excellent for a church run fish fry and was better than half of the restaurant fish fries I have had. Perfect breading on the fish, tons of food, and friendly people. I am not religious at all but I plan on going back.

Is that the church across from Laurel Springs/Bainbrook?

If so, someone else told me it was very good

Not super familiar with the area but I believe so. When I check out maps online, looks to be right near there. The church is set far back down the drive so all you see is the sign and the cross with the purple shroud. Its on the right side of the road if you are heading north on 306.
Fox 8 rated it the best fish fry in Cleveland..

If you like live Lobster, for $2 at the Wright Place you can try to catch your own lobster and have them cook it for you.

Stancato's in Parma has a pretty good fish fry dinner deal. At the corner of Pleasant Valley and State (two miles south the top of State Rd hill). Last time I had it a couple years ago you get like 7-8 very good size pieces of perch, slaw and IIRC choice of potato, all for like $6.99. You are full after eating it.

Went to Capps last night for the first time in the past year and I'll strike it off my list above...

They used to have a really nice AYCE cod dinner for $9.95...perfect Panko breading and texture...

They have now changed it to an AYCE beer-battered perch for $12.95...I understand the change in price due to it now being perch and I don't mind paying the extra...The problem is the beer-batter, which IMO should only be on onion rings...It completely takes over the flavor of the fish and it's so friggin heavy that you really don't have any room for extra...my wife ended up scraping all the batter off of hers...

Don't know why they ruined a good thing that was around for close to 15 years?

I'll now add The Firehouse to my list as well
