Quincy’s Original Fish House cod on a bed of fries with 2 slices of bread.

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.

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.

Quincy’s Fish
I’m sorry to say but was the worst frozen fish not fresh I’ve ever had…..

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.

I went to this quaint fish house last week ad truly enjoyed the cod! I typically don’t eat fried fish, but the food served at this location was surprisingly wonderful. I was also offered a tasty serving of Quincy’s broiled chicken and it was both juicy and crispy, a perfect treat! If you are a connoisseur of seafood or just simply wish to take a different approach for lunch or dinner (besides the ordinary burger and fries), head over to Quincy’s in or Gem City. If it’s your first time, it will not be your last!

I got the cod dinner today and also bought a broiled thigh. That would be a chicken thigh, not a cod’s thigh!! :) That chicken was really good!!

I did make the mistake of mentioning Esrati. They charged me an extra $5 for that!! :( LOL!
