It’s easy to do. Everyone does it. But it’s hard to do well. Let alone great! And Dara did some digging and now she’s sharing it with you. It’s time to reward the best of the Fish and Chips in the Twin Cities and here is Dara’s Top 5!

Morrissey’s Irish Pub
913 West Lake Street
Minneapolis, Minnesota 55408
(612) 465-8555

It’s brand new. But it’s great according to Dara! This Uptown “Irish Pub” on Lake Street is doing a really good fish and chips with a large filet of Cod. The fish wins this one over. The chips, according to Dara are “just ok”. Crisp and a really big serving of fish make this one just right for this newcomer.

The Groveland Tap
1834 St Clair Ave.
St Paul, MN
(651) 699-5058

The Blue Plate Restaurant Company is really the winner on this one, number 4 on Dara’s list. They all take Fish and Chips pretty seriously. But the best of the bunch according to Dara is the Groveland tap. It’s very crisp, very fresh and the Groveland does a Friday Night All-You-Can-Eat Fish Fry and what’s more classic Minnesota than that??? Exactly.

Sea Salt Eatery
4825 Minnehaha Avenue
Minneapolis, MN 55417
(612) 721-8990

Let’s start with this (since we are in the winter that won’t end)…yes, Sea Salt is open. It’s the little shack near Minnehaha Falls, right in the park, and they do a mean fish and chips. It’s some of the freshest in town and the scenery of the park certainly adds to the wonderful food at Sea Salt.

Mac’s Fish and Chips
1330 Larpenteur Avenue West
Saint Paul, MN 55113
(651) 489-5299

It’s now the official “Fish and Chips” of Target Field for the next time you hit a Twins game. That makes it a good #2 on Dara’s list. The long lines of Lent are gone and now would make a good time to make a trip to St. Paul. Mac’s is an institution and while they make a mean Cod Filet, check out the Halibut for a change in the classic Fish.

Anchor Fish and Chips
302 13th Avenue Northeast
Minneapolis, MN 55413
(612) 676-1300

This is not new. This should not be a surprise. The best Fish and Chips in the Twin Cities is at Anchor in Nordeast Minneapolis. It’s a classic “British” pub with classic Fish and Chips. The filet you get is as big as your forearm and the chips are big and meaty (do NOT forget the side of curry or English gravy for your chips). Want a downside? You will wait for a table. It’s always busy and there’s good reason for it. Anchor is the best Fish and Chips in the Twin Cities!
