Buffalo Fish Fry Reviewing any diner, dive, or restaurant that serves fish fry's.




Lucky’s – Elma NY

Location: 3400 Transit Road, Elma NY

Phone:    668-9843

Price: $  12.99

Ambiance: This was a very nice, clean dinner type family restaurant.   It reminded me of the old fashioned diners but was fairly modern.

Service: We were seating upon arrival by the owner.  Our waitress was not particularly friendly but she did take good care of our needs.

Food: We were disappointed that the fish fry offered was not the typically fish fry for Western New York.    We had a choice of salad or soup,  and there were none of the typically salads served.  There was no rye bread, but we were presented with two rolls when our drinks were served.

Our fish was not good at all.  We were both very disappointed.  It was greasy and did not have any taste at all.  The French Fries were not good either, they were the manufactured kind out of mashed potatoes.  The Cole Slaw was fine.  I did not eat all of my meal and I had no interest in taking the left overs home.

Recommendation: I do not recommend Lucky's for a fish fry and I would not return

Flappy’s Greyside Grille

Location: 5700 Seneca & Transit Roads  West Seneca NY

Phone: 716-674-5300

Price: $  9.99

Batter fried, breaded or broiled with choice of
potato, coleslaw, tartar sauce & rye bread & butter

Ambiance: Upon entering Flappys you are greeted by a friendly hostess, lively music and a high energy restaurant.  The decor is pleasing and fun.  We went to the bar while waiting for our table and the bar staff was quick to take our orders and our wait was pleasant.

Service: The service was prompt and friendly.  Our waitress was very good, she took our orders and there was not too long a wait for our food.

Food: The fish was Outstanding, very crisp and tender and moist.  The Fries were homemade and very good.  We were pleased that a slice of rye bread was included.    My only disappointment was that the only side we had was cole slaw.  The typical Buffalo Fish fry should have potato and macaroni salads too.

Recommendation: I would recommend this fish fry to others and I would return again.

Springbrook Hotel – Elma NY

Springbrook Hotel 6-4-10

Location: Seneca Street, Elma NY

Price: $  10.00

Ambiance: This is a older building that was reminiscent of circa 1950.  It appeared to attract a older crowd and it was quaint.

Service: Friendly and there was no wait for a table.  Definitely a plus on a Friday night in Buffalo.

Food: The fish fry was excellent.  The fish was crispy on the outside and tender on the inside.  It came with coleslaw, macaroni salad, french fries, and a slice of rye bread.
