Friday Fish Fries in the Chicago Suburbs

The Fish Fry Friday tradition is very strong in the Midwest, most popular in Wisconsin.

Around the Chicago suburbs so many of us look forward to the Lenten season so that we can enjoy local fish fry specials nearby. Some of my favorites are the All You Can Eat fish fries that pop up at restaurants all over the Chicagoland area. For some it coincides with traditions from their religious backgrounds and preparation for Easter, for others it’s an opportunity to get a deal on some of the best fish at local restaurants, VFWs and churches.

If you’re looking for some of the tastiest, we’ve got you covered. As always we’ve tasted, researched and asked around to find the top places to go for your next Friday night fish fry.

To determine if your neighboring restaurant is serving to-go, sit down or AYCE Friday fish fries please contact the restaurant first.

This list is in Alphabetical order by Suburb Name.

Contact the Restaurant or check their website or Facebook for availability. Some are only available during Lent, while others occur every Friday. Check this list often, it will be updated frequently.
