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.

Poorly-rated. Bozo: Thumb up 0 Thumb down 4

Gotta disagree with you, Rodney.  I bought dinner there a few weeks ago.  Unfortunately, after I got it home, it had to sit while I took care of some things.  So, into the oven it went.  It was OK warmed up, but nothing spectacular.  But it was good enough that I wanted to give it another chance.
 
So, today I tried it again at lunch.  WOW! It was great!!  I started eating it on the way home.  The fries were super good and the fish was excellent!!  I got the cod lunch, but also picked up an extra piece of perch as well as a piece of whiting.  All three varieties were great!  Too bad that place doesn’t have any sit down service.
 
I just hope that the community supports that restaurant.  I know that it was cold today and the streets (Gettysburg and W 3rd) weren’t real crowded, but there wasn’t another car in the parking lot.  When I pulled up, I was afraid that they were closed on Monday’s but was happy to find the door unlocked.  I would definitely recommend the place as long as you can get it home and start eating it in a decent amount of time.

Brilliant or Bozo? Thumb up 2 Thumb down 1
