Fish fry review 2009 - From the mailbag

Yes, we asked, and we received. One of our regular readers, Leanne weighs in on some of the fish fries she's attended recently.

Again, if you're so inclined, send them in to fishfry at (add the at sign here)

St. Cecelia, St. Louis (South City)

I went to the fish fry at St. Cecilia ( on 3/6/09.

They had a wide variety of things to eat. Cod, Shrimp, Chile Rellano, Quesadilla, Flautas, Tacos. We tried the Cod, Shrimp, Chille Rellano, Quesadilla and Flautas. The cod wasn't good. It was one of those square pieces that was unremarkable. Everything else was top notch. The side selection was pretty good and all tasted pretty good.

The desserts we tried were fair - we had an oatmeal cookie and a piece of cake.

You could buy beer and chips and salsa. The chips and salsa was good.

The service was a little bit slow. You order and they give you a number. Then someone comes out with your food and looks for your number. We ordered and paid within 5 minutes of being there, but it took more than 30 minutes for our food to arrive to our table.

They have a fish fry every Friday of Lent except for Good Friday.

NOTE: St. Cecelia's fish fry was featured in the eat-drink-live section of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch today.

Holy Redeemer, Webster Groves

I also went to a Fish Fry at Holy Redeemer ( in Webster on 2/27/09. It was quite delicious. They have really good cod. Big pieces of fish, hand battered. Very good. They also have smoked salmon (but I don't like salmon). Their side selection is good. Desserts are delicious. This is a two thumbs up fish fry for me!! I don't have as much to say on this one - it's more of a typical fish fry, but it's very good.
