Fish and Chips

I live in South Amboy and I am dying to find a place that makes good fish and chips. Whenever I have the urge I have to make it myself. Any suggestions????

    1. Have you tried The Morgan Fishery on Rt, 35 N in SA or Sayreville? BYOB too.
      Or the fish shack on Rt. 18 N in E. Brunswick, just n. of Red Lobster? Take Bordentown Av., get on north bound 18. Isn't it sad at how difficult it has become to not only find a good piece of fish, but even good chips?
      Go Bombers!

        Pass- I am interested in going to the Morgan Fishery in Sayreville. I searched for a menu online, but I haven't found much info on it. Could you please tell me more about it?

            The menu is extensive, double sided, blurry, small type print. Mainly fried and a lot of Italian influence. Very small, no ambiance, but great food, form fish sandwiches to daily specials. Deat by garlic too. (What a way to go.)

            What is it you're looking for? I have a copy of the menu.

        1. I would suggest McDonoughs Pub in Keyport. I grew up eating the fish and chips at the Argyle in Kearny and the ones at McDonoughs are pretty close.

            i second Debbie. The pub's fish and chips are great. We went in on a whim expecting average bar food and were very impressed.

          2. If you are willing to go as far as Asbury Park, the Brick Wall has very fine fish and chips

              I like the Fish at Brickwall, but the chips are, well, chips. I prefer the standard fries with my fish and chips, not home sliced potato chips.

            2. Thanks all!!!! I will check them out.
