    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.

    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.

    In my opinion, fish is meat... but I digress.

    This. Are Catholics the only ones to not eat meat during Ash Wednesday and Fridays in Lent?

    My grandfather runs the fish fry in Lamont, IA every year. It's definetly not just a wisconsin thing. We have family that travels from Chicago to help out on good Friday. Its about family and faith, no matter the religion. I thoroughly enjoy it every year.

    Sacred Heart in Boone has good ones during Lent. Not sure of their schedule. I have hit it up before, though. Great fish, baked taters, Mac & cheese. Worth it.
