Your Guide to Friday Fish and Chips in Rhode Island!

Is it Friday yet? Living in the Ocean State, we have premier access to the freshest seafood, and that proximity allows us to eat the most delicious and nutritious fishes without having to make much effort at all. While there are myriad ways to prepare foods that once swam Narragansett Bay and Rhode Island Sound, perhaps the most popular and beloved version is the simplest: perfectly battered and fried, and  paired with crispy, salty fried potatoes; with a side of palate refreshing cole-slaw. While Friday night is traditionally the time for families to enjoy this sea bounty, many of the restaurants listed below serve it every night. This list is far from comprehensive, as the dish is so popular. Please comment below with any favorites we may have missed!

    I have visited George’s of Galilee, and Flo’s clam shack, but by far the best Fish and chips I have tasted in America was at Anthony’s seafood in Middletown, which unfortunately you have not listed.
