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.
