Best Fish and Chips in The Twin Cities Area
If you’re a lifelong fish n’ chips fan like I am and you live in the Twin Cities area you probably already know the best places to score this tremendous dish. However, if you’re from out of town and you’re a fish n’ chips fanatic, get out your tartar and worchester sauce and get ready to eat. With the assistance of YellowPages.com, I’ve put together a list of the top 5 fish n’ chips spots in the Minneapolis/St. Paul/Twin Cities area:
Anchor Fish and Chips—Take a little trip to Ireland (not literally) and get some tall pints of Guinness with your Fried Cod. The Anchor even has their own food trucks which are packed with Fish n’ Chips and ready to serve.
Merlin’s Rest—Now take a little trip to the British Isles and enjoy some of the best Bangers and Mash as an appetizer before your fried cod entree. Merlin’s Rest has been voted Best Fish N’ Chips in Minneapolis several times. Additionally, they have one of the most expansive lists of Irish and Scotch Whiskey in the city.
Seafood Market—This mom and pop dive restaurant doesn’t even have their hours posted and is often passed up for more glamorous locations, but they have their core customers who swear by the cod. As an extra incentive it’s by far the cheapest option on this list.
Stella’s Fish Cafe—Located in Minneapolis’s uptown neighborhood, Stella’s has all kinds of seafood, including crab legs, oysters, and sushi. But for a true treat you should order their standard beer-battered and deep fried cod.
Mac’s Fish and Chips—This is flat out one of the best places to eat in St. Paul. Another Irish-themed location, in addition to great Fish N’ Chips Mac’s also has their own in-house Salt Water Taffy!
All of these spots have their restaurant menus posted online so that if there’s someone in your crew who can’t eat fish (poor sap) you can find some other great options for them to order. Fish n’ Chips is one of the most legendary meals to come out of England and it has become a popular staple in the Twin Cities area too.
