It’s time to try a Friday-night fish fry.

There’s nothing like freshly fried fish along with cole slaw and other side dishes. This year, most locations are offering drive through or carry out only, but a few are hosting limited dine-in options in a socially distanced way. Be sure to support a local fish fry soon!
