These 6 Classic Fish Fry Joints Are So Perfectly Denver
We are right in the midst of the Lenten season which often leads locals on a search for the tastiest fried fish in the city. Well, the good news is, when it comes to fish and chips, Denver does not disappoint. The only bad news is you might have a hard time choosing which tasty restaurant to try first. Check out this list of 6 local joints that serve up crispy, hot, and delicious fish and chips that will definitely satisfy your cravings.
1. GB Fish & Chips (1311 S. Broadway, Denver, CO 80210 and 3 other locations)
When you get a craving for perfectly battered, crispy fried fish, what better place to go than a restaurant who's name encompasses what you are searching for..."Get Battered Fish & Chips." This English joint is on a mission to serve the best fish and chips around while also introducing its guests to other English specialties including Bangers and Mash and Shepherd's Pie.
2. Wally's Wisconsin Tavern (1417 Market St., Denver, CO 80202)
Wally's Wisconsin Tavern is known and loved for their Friday Fish Fry which takes place every Friday from 3-9 p.m. For $13.50 per person, diners can indulge on a 6 oz. Walleye, cranberry slaw, a slice of rye bread, house tarter sauce and your choice of fries or tots.
3. The Fainting Goat (846 Broadway, Denver, CO 80203)
This cozy Irish pub's popular rooftop patio is often what attracts people in, but their Guiness battered fish served on top of a bed of chips or tater tots is what keeps diners coming back for more. Their portions are huge, so we recommend ordering a half portion so you can save room for a pint of Guinness to wash down your mouth watering meal.
4. Bull & Bush Pub & Brewery (4700 Cherry Creek Dr. South, Denver, CO 80246)
For a taste of tradition, dip your lightly battered, deep-fried Alaskan Cod into Bull & Bush's house-made spicy tarter sauce. Follow your meal up with one of their many beers on tap from their brewery or a glass of house-made root beer and you will walk away a very satisfied (and very full) customer!
5. The Irish Snug (1201 E. Colfax Ave., Denver, CO 80218)
This roomy bar and eatery found in the Capitol Hill neighborhood often offers live music and is a fun destination for both families and beer drinkers alike. Order up their beer-battered cod, fresh-cut chips and creamy coleslaw for an unbeatable meal. Make sure you try their tarter sauce...it is said to be some of the best in Denver.
6. York Shire Fish & Chips (7275 Pecos St., Denver, CO 80221)
This little fast food joint that is housed in a cute cottage has been serving authentic English fish and chips with their trademark batter (which is made from scratch daily) since it first opened its doors in 1971. York Shire Fish & Chips also serves up delicious shrimp, scallops, oysters, chicken strips, clam strips, and more.
