    Fish Fry in Ames

    Me and my roommate won't be leaving for spring break until Saturday and are looking for a fish fry to eat at this Friday. If anybody knows of any in or around Ames that would be great.

    Re: Fish Fry in Ames

    It's not a fish fry (because they bake the fish) but Saint Thomas' Aquinas church has a fish dinner every Friday. I can't remember if it was all you can eat but it is pretty decent and it goes to the Knights of Columbus. There's also the Mucky Duck pub which I have heard has excellent fish and chips. I haven't eaten there but with all this hype I plan on checking it out soon.

    False. Where I'm from in NE Iowa there's a fish fry in every single small town.

    This was a staple of my childhood (Eastern Iowa) as well as a few friends from MN.

    The fish may change but they are all over. Please remove the cheese from your eyes. I was in Oklahoma and had fried catfish for a fish fry.
