Lenten Fish Fry Series: Our Lord Christ the King in Mt. Lookout

Our fish fry series continues with last week's visit to Our Lord Christ the King in Mt Lookout! It was their first fish fry of the season, but there will be another April 4 and April 11... from 5-8.

Now let's talk about the fish!
We walked past this to get in. People breading and frying up the fish on our right side and grilling up salmon on our left! The salmon looked fantastic with some kind of delicious marinade on it.

This is another one of those places you might want to get to early. We got there around 5:30 and didn't have trouble with parking or lines, but some of our friends who arrived closer to 6 and after had a little trouble finding parking spots and issues with much slower lines. Also, like I mentioned it was their first fry of the season so I'm sure some kinks had to be worked out.

So the way this fish fry works is just a dinner fee. $10 for dinner....and that includes the fish of your choice and as many sides as you want! (including brownies and ice cream for dessert!!)

You checked what you wanted including your choice of fish and as many sides as you wanted....

Then you walked through their little cafeteria line to pick up all your sides. You might need multiple trays if you opted for an embarrassing amount of sides like we did... but in our defense there were 3 of us! :)

Christ the King is definitely winning in the sides department. So many to choose from!

Shrimp Salad with delicious looking lettuce:

Colorful and fresh looking fruit cups, green beans that still had some bite to them, sauteed summer vegetables, homemade mac and cheese, french fries.....

The fish was good too! Warm, fresh & flaky.

They also didn't disappoint on the rye bread. It was a soft delicious bakery bread.

Beers were between $2-$4 and there were some decent options available:

Modela for him, Shock Top for her
Hannah as usual enjoyed her dinner and appreciated the fruit options besides just applesauce.

And her friend Everett, looking dashing for the night, also enjoyed himself.

Then we had our (included but not pictured) brownies with ice cream for dessert. Perfect end to the meal!
Our table's consensus was very positive. We loved the quality and variety of sides available. The fish was very good... I wish one of us would have tried the salmon because it looked really good! There was ample places to sit and spread out and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

So officially All Saints is still winning for their efficiency, Our Lord Christ the King is definitely winning with their sides, and Nativity I think still has Christ the King eeked out for best fish. St. Cecilia still has it's "closest to my house" award going for it :)

Researching fish frys for 2015, where did you go your last two weeks? I just wanted to see if you went to places we haven't gone in the past. Thanks!

We had to re-do Nativity. It was too good not to!
