I have been coming here for years. This fish is really good, as are the peppers and onions they give you. However, the bread and fries are really not worth it. They are consistently some of the worst french fries I have ever tried. Just get the fish and peppers and you will be fine.

Its always places like this (fried fish in a brown paper bag) that make you glad you have friends in low places. By far one of the top 10 local "joints" to eat at anywhere in the US. Luckily (or not) the surroundings keep the "it" crowd from ruining it. Always a go to place to eat when i'm in... More

HAD THE COD TODAY, Cannot bee beat! Crazy place on the corner. Always bussy - always a fresh- you have too wait. $9 bucks for 6 pieces COD w/bead, fries, & peppers/onions. Just great all the time.

This place is on a corner and the line sometime stretches down the block. There's not much parking but it's worth it to find a spot because the fish is tasty and they're served with a huge side of steamed onions and peppers. The fish is by the plate or family size orders - all to go. No eating inside,... More

What to choose.....Cod, Whiting, or Perch ? You cannot go wrong with any of the three. I pick up a sack of fish at least twice a month for the family. Great staff and crew.

Very fried. I don't know. I grew up on fried food, fresh fish caught in the local stream or lake. This just seems like more fry and less fish.

People if you like fish then do yourself a good one and stop by and get some of the best fish around and do not forget your bag of onions and peppers. The best fish spot I ever ate at and I live in Maryland now. WoW

Fish is very good. Take out only. While located in rough neighborhood, its worth it to get the reasonably priced food. Grab some fish a head to nearby Washington Park to eat.

Small place... Big taste!! I'd recommend you order the cod. Put ketchup AND hot sauce on it and DIG IN! OK the neighborhood might scare you if you're not from there, but the food is worth it. They give you a pack of peppers and onions which are THE BOMB!! All in all, try this place while in Cincinnati. Enjoy!
