The Fish Keg
The Fish Keg

Resembling a fish shack from a small coastal village in Maine, this standing-room-only institution has had more than 50 years to perfect its extensive menu. The well-stocked market has all the accoutrements you need to create a full seafood buffet. The real score here is the fresh seafood and the breaded, fried-to-order shrimp sold by the pound in brown paper bags. Seasoned baked fish entrées help balance out the addictive hush puppies that quickly disappear.

great place in the neighborhood for classic Chicago fried fish in a bag!! love the potato salad too!

It's a long time staple for fried fish & fried everything, zero competition in the neighborhood should tell you something.
