Comment: This was an incredibly quick, no-nonsense Fish Fry which justifies a quick, no-nonsense review.
The fish came fast, almost too fast. It was three minutes and a cloud of dust. The lunch special at the MSB is only a 2-piece deal, but also only costs $7.50 so it’s a good deal.
The fish hit the fat part of the plate and was good, not great. It was basically exactly what I expected it to be. It consisted of two smallish pieces that were probably 3 oz each. The fish was of decent quality, and was a little watery but maintained some flakiness. The average cod featured a light batter with enough flavor to cover the imperfections in meat. In a word it was every bit of average, but still perfectly recommendable in our book.
Alongside the fish was a decent portion of thick-cut Julienne fries that were perfectly cooked and had a satisfying crunch. A rich creamy tartar was also satisfying, and clung to fish even though fish may not have wanted it to.
Some really good slaw and a regular dinner roll rounded out the meal and did all they needed to do. The slaw was of the creamy variety and had a good punch to go along with its milky consistency. The roll was a roll, plain and simple.
While the Fish Fry at the MSB isn’t something to go out of your way for it is a fine little Fish Fry. Overall, we barely recommend this Fish Fry, but for the price you really can’t go wrong.
