Fish and chips take-out?

Post by pat » Jun Mon 29, 2009 4:32 pm

Where are the better fish and chips take-out places around here? The only ones that I know of are Green Harbor Lobster Pound and this little place up in Hingham just north of the harbor.

I'm sure any seafood restaurant will cook up some fish and chips and put it into a doggie bag container, but I find that if you order from a traditional restaurant, you tend to spend a good deal more money. I don't want to spend $16 for a plate of fish and chips that I plan on eating on my lap sitting on the sea wall.

Is Charlie's Two owned by the same folks who ran Charlie's in Brant Rock years ago?

I used to love Charlies and I would do what Pat described, I would get a to go order and then eat on the seawall (teasing the gulls who were of the mistaken opinion that I might accidently drop a morsel).

I feel like we have had fish and chips everywhere. Oddly enough our favorite place is The BBC in Pembroke. I am sure you can call for take out....or stay and have a beer!

I am way overdue to give the BBC a try, I have heard nothing but good things about their food.

I was pleasantly surprised at how much I liked the fish and chips at Red Robin, and they have malt vinegar on demand (which is a requirement for me).

It's a little pricier than what Pat was targetting, and it's a bit out of the way for takeout.

True, however they do have malt Vinegar on the table!
My hubby said the fish sandwich for under $7.00(lunch special) was fantastic at the Bridgway.

Snug Harbor Fish Company in Duxbury has won some best of south shore for the fish sandwiches which are the same thing as the fish and chips they sell. I had some fish and chips here last weekend, thumbs up.

Haddad's has great fish and chips for $7.95 on their lunch menu. They'll give you the plastic knives and forks if you ask for them.

The dinner price is more but they add a third side order. The lunch menu is good until 4:00. 7 days a week.

McD's. Simply order a Filet-O-Fishá sandwich without the bun/fixins then add a small fries.

Quick, easy, and cheap takeout... :)

Pizza places??? Why would a pizza place have decent fish and chips?

I should point out that I like GOOD fish and chips. That means that the fish is fresh and it's not deep fried in the same oil that's been cooking onion rings, chicken, etc.

Whites Ferry Seafood used to have decent fish and chips. There also used to be a place in Cohasset near where The Atlantica is now.

I have heard rumour of a double-secret special fish sandwich that McD's will make on request. It is basically a Big Mac that substitutes the two all beef patties with two Filet o' Fish.

Also I heard that there is a reason that the word "Filet" is deliberately mispelled on the McD's menu. Technically it is processed pollock (much like imitation crabmeat) and thus technically is not a "Fillet".

I was by there Monday (got soaked on my bike) and I thought they had a new sign up, Lobster something. Not sure though and I would NEVER dissagree with Hurricane. :)

dtpfv3.0, i think you have fallen victim to several Urban Myths.

“Filet' and “Fillet' are standard CIA and Chef language.
Filet = a cut or slice of fish.
Fillet = a cut of beef.

Outside a trained culinary kitchen or beyond a Chef, everyday consumers typically are not aware of the difference, and sometimes confuse the 2 terms.

“Fillet' is generally understood & accepted, most often used in advertising. As far as i know: the FDA allows use of both words in food advertising campaigns and product packaging for fish and beef.

Tomato or Tomatoe? Fillet or Filet?

That's no secret! If you ask an informed franchisee, they "should" make any available item altered to your needs.

Fillet & Filet described above. As for "Processed pollock"... do you really expect a fresh fish fillet? Have you ever looked at a McD's, BK, or Wendys fish "fillet"? All are processed fish. All follow FDA rules. This is another Urban Myth similar to Kentucky Fried Chicken changing it's name to "KFC", because their food is not actually chicken.

Rock Lobster is the name. Not sure if they are open yet, I think they were trying to open before the 4th of July.

Had a really good fish sandwich at the Venus on Saturday night. It was around $14, but got a HUGE thick piece of delish fish. It was cheaper than the fish and chips, didn't want the veggie anyhow.

$14 for a fish sandwich - you have got to be joking! i'd be skeptical of paying that even for a full platter of fish and chips...

and on that note, i would like to contribute another place to the list, although its a little off the beaten path from marshfield... its on route 18 in east bridgewater and its this nondescript side of the road type of place, with tables or counters to sit at... they use a different batter (liquid) for the fish than for the other seafood and its almost tempura-like... and the onion rings are almost exactly like the bridgwaye...

this is the fish feed, and its HUGE! and we bring it home and it stays crispy..
