Aren’t you tired of the mixed salad with a hunk of chicken or fish on it and the dressing on the side? Why not just go for the fried catfish and waffle fries? Well, at Fish City Grill, on Buffalo Speedway you don’t have to make this kind of choice, because they have some interesting “heart healthy” food. This campfire trout was as good as it looked. If it had an equal volume of vegetables to fish, I’d have been even happier, but then maybe I wouldn’t have snitched the waffle fries from my husband.
This is a friendly, casual place, and people seemed to be enjoying themselves. Don’t get the wine – get beer or iced tea. Everyone around us was digging into big platters of fried fish and shrimp, so I was a little worried about the alternatives, but they were great! I see it is a chain, and I’ve no idea what the other locations are like.
When I go out, I wonder sometimes if a very ordinary place doesn’t have one great thing, and if you order that, you’ll love the place. Is there anything else besides my campfire trout that would be great? I don’t know, but I got lucky and ordered something that was just what I wanted.
Look at that! The doors were open and it is still January!
Campfire trout was really delicious, though I could have used a few more vegetables!
Don’t order the fish tacos, gummy, unfishy. Go to Hobbit Cafe if you want fish tacos. Get the corn tortillas too.
We started with oysters so I can miss them when we move away from the Gulf. They’re gold band oysters, apparently pasteurized???
I’ll have to eat a lot more of them to understand what makes these bland mollusks good or bad. Well, maybe I can guess on bad. These were good, I guess.
How do they do this? My campfire trout was better.
