Hawthorne fish house

Is there more there than fried fish? I can't find a menu.

  1. Yes. Most is fried, but there are a few grilled items, I believe.I like the place very much.

    1. They're owned by Corbett Fish House. Here's their menu:


      I recommend Halibut's on Alberta instead for better fried fish.

      1. I have to agree with the recommendation for Halibuts. My wife and I had dinner at Hawthorne Fish House, and the food was terrible.

        1. Just a side note, my wife and I sat down at Halibuts for a late lunch just before the Sysco truck pulled up and they started wheeling in all the frozen premade fries, batter, and what not. And the owner spent the afternoon yelling at the TV and talking loud on a cell phone. Not our favorite dining experience...

          1. We met the owner in early November when we went to Halibuts for dinner. He was gregarious but we did not notice any interaction with the TV. I am surprised that the fish or fries are frozen, but they tasted very good just the same.
            The clam chowder is very good too. I would go back.

            1. Hawthorne FH is pretty weird if you're after "fish and chips" but we go there now and again since it's close. I like the fried cheese curds, the fish "taco" with chile-fried catfish and wasabi coleslaw, and the clam chowder. The Caesar is nothing to write home about, but it's decent enough if you want some green to eat. Thoughtful, if not wide-ranging, beer selection too, and imperial pints at that.

              Frankly my best easily-accessible fish-and-chips fix (i'm in SE) comes from Burgerville. Haven't made it to Halibuts yet though the owner's rantings in the W.Week's story about trans fats kind of turned me off. we'll probably try it if we ever get up that way, regardless, since it meets with generally high reviews all over.
