Upper St. Clair Fish Fry Guide

Every Friday until Easter, you can find great fried fish and other meatless dinner options at churches and organizations around the South Hills.

Easter is this Sunday, which means the Lenten season is almost over. That also means Friday is the last fish fry of the year!

Here's a list of some local options for you and your family. You can try a different fish fry each Friday!

Makes me hungry

Last week my husband brought home great fish sandwiches from St. Anne's Parish school in Castle Shannon. He takes the T to work and there is a St. Anne's stop. I was very impressed that the sandwiches are still very good by the time he got home.

Anyone try St. Louise? It's on the list and have always wanted to try.
Eric Fischer March 15, 2013 at 05:58 PM
St. Louise's is ok. The fish smells real fishy and is little too salty for my taste. The staff is great though and it's a fun place to do crossword puzzles at. Plus I feel safe leaving my dog Sherman tied up outside while I eat. Hope that helps!
James March 15, 2013 at 08:09 PM
I heard St. Louise is being torn down....The parking lot is blocked off for the demolition crews.
Somepplstillamazeme March 15, 2013 at 08:40 PM
@Wake up. I have also heard about St. Louise being torn down. What a shame…
Eric Fischer March 15, 2013 at 09:17 PM
@Wake up. I hope it's not because of their fish Frys. Do you know why?
Becky Brindle March 16, 2013 at 12:45 AM
St. Louise is not being torn down. It's getting renovated. Renovations will be completed on April 7. See here for photos of the renovation - http://stlouisedemarillac.org/about-us/church-renovation
Eric Fischer March 16, 2013 at 03:22 AM
Becky...that's great to hear. I thought they were building a replica of St. Peter's Basilica for when Pope Francis visits Upper St. Clair.
Kathleen McGarvey March 29, 2013 at 02:20 PM
I think it is so funny how rumors get started... St. Louise is growing, renovating & expanding the church & the school. St. Louise is a thriving parish!
