Woops, Ltell ave near Wegmans. Does Wegmans have a garbage plate? Everything Wegmans does is good.
Wegmans fish fries are awful.
Not sure why they haven't figured it out.
Also, the Wegmans tartar sauce in the jar is terrible.

I would really like to have Palmers tartar sauce recipe.
Their fish is outstanding, also.

I think Kithnos Seafood Mkt on N.Clinton (between 104 and E.Ridge Rd.) is awesome. Super huge amount of fish given. Great service, the lines are long during a Lenten Friday, but they go in a very smooth and quick pace.
Love their Crab sticks and the Bisque.
I've had Davies, they are good too, I actually like their cole slaw better than Kithnos, its sweeter.
But I once had their scallops dinner and I just couldnt finish it after about 4 pieces, not sure what was in the sauce, it was just goo.
In the old days, The Garage Door had the biggest piece of Haddock I ever had on a consistent basis, it hung off the plate at both ends.
Kithno's has good Hush Puppies.

Whoever made the recipe for Wegman's meatloaf never put onions, pepper, bread crumbs or spices in the meat.

What they added to it I have no idea. It tasted nothing like any meatloaf I've ever had. I wouldn't even feed it to my dog. They added some kind of spices and seasoning because just egg and ground beef baked into a log would be leaps and bounds better tasting. Anyone I've ever heard try it says the same thing.

Captain Jim's is my fave. When I used to work near Greece, Davies was also very good. But I live on the east side and Capt Jim's is just a couple minutes away. Honestly, I'd drive for it. Wonderful service (despite what that review up above said). Great food. During Lent, it's VERY busy. Heck, any Friday night it's VERY busy. Lotta good fish in town, but Captain Jim's is the penultimate!

I had a Kithno's fish fry this week because Capt. JIms was closed..... HORRIBLE.... Smelled and tasted like it sat under a radiator for a day before cooking.... The dog sniffed it and wouldn't even eat it. Never again

Sorry to bump up this old thread but I went to Kithnos seafood market recently, and I forgot how great their fish frys were. Haven't been there in ages! I have to put them up there!

Must have had an off day. My fish fry was excellent! My only complaint was that they gave me way too much cole slaw! It was good, but I didn't and couldn't eat all of it!

Jack's SS on Buffalo in Gates are very good, we get two almost every Friday.
If you are not into FF try their BBQ Ribs, they are great and very well priced.

I'm looking for a place that serves great breaded fish fry, as good as Jean's in Syracuse made when I was a kid. All I can find here in Rochester is battered fish. Too heavy, high caloric. Especially would like nearer Pittsford.
