My husband and I make several trips to Myrtle Beach each year, and I’m always looking for some place different to eat than the trips before. Usually on our first night there, I crave a simple meal of fried shrimp and hushpuppies. THE place to go for just that is the town of Calabash, NC. It’s about a half hour drive north and well worth it, but we didn’t want to make that drive the first night.
I don’t do buffets. I can’t stand all the people hovering over all the food acting like this may be their last meal. The food is always just mediocre at best, especially for the price. So we decided to try Duffy Street Fish Shack on Restaurant Row which is less than 10 minutes from our place.
Duffy Street is a locally-owned establishment that’s been around for 16 years. They have two other locations on the grand strand in Cherry Grove and North Myrtle Beach. The Myrtle Beach location opened just over a year ago. They describe themselves as a “low country & laid back” place with “fantastic food, smoking hot blues and ice cold beer.” There was no band the night we were there, but it was Sunday, so that was understandable.
After reviewing nine local fish sandwiches during Lent, we have now compiled the results.
And the Top Fish is:
I am now completely convinced that the only reason to go to Buffalo Wild Wings is to meet friends to cheer on the Mountaineers. We have done just that five times since the start of the Big East tournament, stretching into the NCAA tourney. On one such occasion, I was too hungry to wait until after the game for a Taco Bell drive-thru meal so I took advantage of the opportunity to review yet another fish sandwich.
Here’s how the BW3 Fish Sandwich scored: Continue reading
Since Captain D’s is supposedly just as good as those high-priced seafood restaurants, Fork You needed to check out their fish sandwich.
Here’s how it scored:
Harding’s is a place we have accidentally neglected. It’s close to work, has plenty of free parking and serves breakfast all day. We finally made it there to review their Golden Fish Fillet Sandwich.
The sandwich is made up of a piece of breaded fried fish, lettuce, tartar sauce, and cheese on a toasted hoagie roll with fries on the side for $6.99. Let’s see how they scored:
We just couldn’t wait for week five to tell you about this great fried trout sandwich from Bluegrass Kitchen. We completely lucked out this past Friday when our server described the specials, and included a fish sandwich. She said it is being served each Friday during Lent.
The scores, please:
The Fork You Crew had to check out the amazingly low priced Fish Sandwich combo at Arby’s as a part of our Top Fish research. And it comes with curly fries – score!
