Fish Fries Minnesota

It is Catholics favorite time of the year Lent! The Catholics give up eating meat on Fridays but they get to have something delicious instead: FISH!

You don’t have to be a Catholic to enjoy the fish fries around the state during the Lenten season. Welcome one and all to the fish fries!

A full list can be found at The Catholic Spirit.

Here is a few of my picks: 

St. Albert the Great Catholic Church
2836 33rd Avenue South



They feed about 700 people every Friday night.  It is the Twin Cities most popular fish fry. They have bingo and many other activities but be prepared to stand in a line.

Any of the VFW’s are a great spot to go because you can get beer as well. Richfield VFW is always highly rated. Beer always enhances the flavors of the fish or at least that is my perception.  Knights of Columbus Hall in  Bloomington is another hall open 5 to 9 PM at 1114 American Blvd. Call (952) 888-1492 for reservations.

If you are looking for something other than fish, head over to Our Lady of Guadalupe in St. Paul from 11:00-6:30PM. You can also get them to-go by the dozen. On 401 Concord St.

My best suggestion is to try out a parish in your community. There is nothing better than meeting your neighbors over a great meal.

I would love to hear about your Fish Fries. Leave me a comment or find me on twitter @mplsgossipgirl.

Because food brings people together

    I didn’t realize Friday night fish fries were also common in “the Cities.” I thought these were more a rural-oriented tradition. Just goes to show I can always learn something new.

      I bet some of these City Slickers will head out of the city to go to some really good Fish Fries. Let me know of any that you know of and I will highlight them on my blog next Friday. Thanks for the comment. You can email me at

      I think they have just become popular for non-Catholics in the last two years. I am looking forward to them becoming more popular they really bring together communities.
