    I’m not catholic but I do love a good fish fry. And this time of year it seems they pop up all over the place. Anyone have a favorite church/non-traditional restaurant that does fish frys on fridays during lent?

    I’d like to hit up more than the one I’ve been to.

    I haven’t been, but they have had Barley’s Scottish and Pale ale on tap at the Immaculate Conception Fish Fry for at least a few years.
    My go to lenten Friday supper is fish tacos (Jesus wants us to drink margaritas) My only dilemma is that I make my tortillas with lard (Does Jesus want me to use Crisco? I don’t think so…)

    We hit the 4S club on whittier last week.

    It was pretty darn good, $10 all-u-can-eat.

    I usually go to a fake pub.
    The new one at Polaris Mall is pretty good.

    If the wife wants me not to eat meat on Fridays, I ask to go to a place that has decent Scotch Ale.

    I find, many things Catholic, much more palatable with a high alcohol content drink.

    I ordered the Danney’s Deli Fish sandwich for lunch today. it’s your basic fried fish on a bun, but it’s good.

    last week I went to the Rhodes tower basement cafeteria for their fish fry Fridays. I couldn’t eat it. I had to throw it out. I’ve had their fish before and it was good, but I think they were too busy during Lent and quality plummeted.

    Then there is always Whale shrimp fish chicken on 5th ave just East of 71. scary neighborhood, tasty fried fish. Though they too can be hit or miss. The first time I had them I thought it was the tastiest home fried fish around. The last time it was a little bland. but it’s not off my list, it’s still good.

    I love Old bag of nails fish.

    Immaculate Conception Church, 414 E N Broadway, Clintonville, has a pretty good fish fry during Lent. They feature fried or baked fish, steak fries, vegetable, cole slaw, apple sauce, rolls, pizza, mac-n-cheese, ice cream and home made assorted desserts. Besides water, lemonade, soda, or coffee, they also offer Barley’s Scottish and Pale Ales in addition to popular bottle beers. No wine though. $8 for adults and $4 for children. Dine in or carry out.

    Went to Immaculate Conception last Friday. I thought it was just ok. $8 carryout gets you a roll and butter, green beans, 2 fish fillets, and some wedge fries. the green beans were straight out of a can, or so it seemed, i couldn’t eat them. the fries were lacking flavor. the fish was good, nice batter. the roll was good.

    bumping my own thread. I still love me some greasy church fish fry.

    Anyone know of some this year?

    We went to St. Elizabeth’s last year (just off of 161) and it was pretty terrible. It was the first church fish fry I’d seen advertised here but it was awful.

    I grew up in Cleveland and so many churches there had really excellent lenten dinners, was kind of sad to see they don’t happen so much in Columbus. (Not that I’m still a Catholic, I just like a good fish fry.)

    I recently had fish and chips at Claddaugh and I really liked the bigger-than-your-head piece of fried fish.
