I’m lucky. I’ve been invited to the sneak peek, and stopped in on the quiet opening day.
I’ve tried the Whiting, Perch and Cod- which is every fish on the menu, and I’m a fan.
Now, full disclosure, I do work for Quincy’s- but, I’m going to make a confession- I don’t usually like fried fish. I’m a raw sushi kind of guy- the fish and chips thing was never the same since being served it wrapped in newspapers in England off a street cart- where the grease was so thick you could lube your axles with the newspaper when you were done eating.
So, I ran some of it over to an expert- my mother. 85 years old and still sporting the Brit accent. She pronounced it as great too.
They make everything from scratch- and the menu is super limited. 3 kinds of fish, all served on 2 slices of bread, with hand cut fries and peppers and onions. Warning- the peppers and onions are powerfully hot. I get hick-ups eating them, so be careful.
The coleslaw is also made fresh and is equally awesome.
Prices at lunch are $3 cheaper than dinner. The lunch portion will fill you up- the dinner portion- will almost feed two. Leave room for desert too- Keith has started selling his Chocolate Chunk cookies- $1.59 ea or 2 for $3.00. Pretty amazing.
The Whiting is $4.99 at lunch, and $7.99 at dinner, The cod and perch are $5.99 at lunch and $8.99 for dinner.
They are open at 11 a.m.- and stay open till 11 p.m. Monday- Saturday and close at 9 p.m. on Sunday.
Head over to 3907 W. Third St., just before Gettysburg, across from Auto Zone in the old Pizza Hut.
Their phone is (937) 263-3474 (FISH) Call ahead to have your order ready. The lobby is small.

[update] June 21 2014, Quincy’s is now also serving broasted chicken. I’m not sure what makes it “broasted” – it’s cooked in a Henny Penny pressure fryer- but- that’s the word they are using. It’s really good as well. Go in and check it out.[/update]
