Are you craving some great fried fish?

If the answer is yes, you should visit these places in Greater Cleveland (this list is not at all meant to be comprehensive!).

Tick Tock Tavern

If you find yourself in the Edgewater neighborhood, you can't go wrong with the fish fry at this joint, which has been around since the early 1940s. Check out the tavern fish fry, which features lightly breaded white fish that's fried to crispy perfection. They also offer deep fried perch, which is served with sautéed pierogis and onions.

Tick Tock Tavern is located at 11526 Clifton Blvd, Cleveland, OH 44102.

Trader Jack's Riverside Grille

If you find yourself on the eastside, you should check out the fish fry at this restaurant in Eastlake. Customers strongly recommend the yellow lake perch, which is breaded by hand and fried to a golden brown. The restaurant also has Jack's fish fry on their menu; this dish consists of delicious fried North Atlantic cod. They also offer tasty panko-crusted walleye. Each fried fish dish comes with fries and slaw.

Trader Jack's Riverside Grille is located at 35901 Lakeshore Blvd, Eastlake, OH 44095.

Ridgewood Inn

Located on the westside, this local favorite offers delicious fish fry. They serve fried sauger pike and yellow Lake Erie perch that are breaded by hand and fried until golden brown. Ridgewood Inn also offers beer-battered cod, baked scrod, fried shrimp, and fried scallops. All of their fish fry dinners come with fries and slaw, but many customers recommend substituting the fries with the restaurant's pierogi. Ridgewood Inn's pierogis are homemade and delectable.

Ridgewood Inn is located at 5759 Ridge Rd, Cleveland, OH 44129.

The Harp

If you find yourself in Cleveland's Ohio City neighborhood, you should make a trip to this Irish pub. Patrons can't get enough of their fish and chips, which feature a pair of fried beer-battered cod filets and come with fries, homemade coleslaw, and tartar sauce. They also offer a sandwich with a beer-battered cod filet, lettuce, tomato, and tartar sauce on the side. If you have room for dessert, check out their famous Guinness ice cream sundae, which has fudge brownies, chocolate sauce, caramel sauce, honey roasted pecans, and whipped cream.
