The Saint Mary Magdalen (Brentwood and Manchester) fish fry may be the only one I've attended that does NOT offer mac and cheese, french fries or tater tots. No worries, though, because green beans almondine, macaroni shells with red sauce, and sweet and sour cole slaw are the three side orders made available to Saint MM's customers. Both the green beans and shells were tasty and served hot.

St. MM serves baked and fried cod. Both are very good, and again, served hot---not to be taken for granted at these local fish fries. The hot food is carried to tables in styrofoam carry-out containers with lids, not on plates. While perhaps not eco-friendly, this method does result in a hot meal.

Pizza, juice and Mass cards are given to the kids. The dessert table included just about every type of cookie and cake ever created. My kids opted for donuts!

Beer and wine are $2.

Parking is plentiful in the church lot. At 7 p.m., guests are invited to leave so the restaurant can morph into a gym for a basketball game.
