Greater St Louis Fish Fry Map 2015

The BEST and dare I say ORIGINAL Fish Fry Map is updated for 2015! All I'm going to say is, I started this because there was no site on the internet that compiled all the fish frys in one place. I'm sure there will be a lot of them this year, because ours is super popular. I skimmed all the parish websites and bulletins for the latest details, but it's certainly possible that I missed some! If you would like your Fish Fry included, please comment with dates, times, and, if possible, a menu!

A note on dates: For the purposes of the blog, Lent is from Ash Wednesday (2/18) until Maundy Thursday (4/2). All Fridays of Lent means 2/20, 2/27, 3/6, 3/13, 3/20, and 3/27. Good Friday is noted separately from "All Fridays of Lent".


Ash Wednesday Fry:  Epiphany, Immaculate Conception (Maplewood), Our Lady of Lourdes (Washington), Our Lady of Sorrows, Seven Holy Founders, St Alban Roe, St Francis of Assisi , St James the Greater, St Joseph (Clayton), St Joseph (Cottleville), St Michaels (Shrewsbury), St Stephen Protomartyr, St George

ALL THE FRIDAYS (including Good Friday): Immaculate Conception (Maplewood), Most Sacred Heart, Our Lady of Sorrows, Our Lady Queen of Peace (House Springs), Seven Holy Founders, St Francis of Assisi, St Gabriel, St George, St Mary Magdalen (Both Brentwood and South St Louis)

"The Mexican Fish Fry" - St Cecilia in South St Louis is probably the one you heard about. Be prepared to stand in line for an hour ORRRRRR MAKE A RESERVATION! Be sure to check out that VIP table option!

Polish Fish: This year St Agatha doesn't have many details other that "All Fridays of Lent". If anyone finds more details, send them my way!

Beer Fish Catholics (there are many kinds of Catholic parishes, and the kind with beer at their fish fry are my people) : Annunciation (Webster Groves), Christ Prince of Peace,
Immaculate Conception (Maplewood), Immaculate Heart of Mary (New Melle), Little Flower, Seven Holy Founders, St Agatha, St Francis of Assisi, St Gerard Majella, St James the Greater, St Joseph (Farmington), St Mary Magdalen (Brentwood), St Pius V, St Stephen Protomartyr

All You Can Eat - Immaculate Conception (O'Fallon), Most Sacred Heart (need reservation), St Joseph (Farmington), Knights of Columbus (Bloomsdale), Church of the Shepherd (St Charles), St Patrick

Year Round Fish Fry: St Ferdinand in Florissant. They have been raising money by frying fish for over 60 years!

Fish Fry I Would Travel For: St Joseph in Farmington. For one, it's all you can eat. For two, they have a different specialty side every week, and I am a sucker for fried okra.

The Best Blog For St Louis Fish Fry Reviews:  Look, I can't get to all of them, I just give you a list. When I am looking for a review, I go to Friday Night Fish.

It takes 15-20 hours to put this map together, and the average church website is blinding in its design. Please do me a solid and link to the website rather than the map when you share with your friends and family! Also, if your church has any vendor fairs during the year, I’d love to join you with Jewelscent and handmade products!


  1. The original...AND STILL THE BEST! Sacred Heart in Valley Park has an Ash Wednesday Fry; that's where we are headed - Page 6 of that PDF bulletin has the Fry information as well as a coupon for FREE HUSH PUPPIES. Love the ALL YOU CAN EAT listings; I had never experienced an AYCE fry 'til I was in Beloit for one of my Lenten Fridays last year. Good to know Saint Louis does 'em too!

  2. This is a great site! How do I add our fish fry to the map? We are American Legion Post 397, please let me know what info you need! Thanks!
