CENTRAL OHIO (WCMH) – With the start of Lent tomorrow, it’s time for our annual list of best fish fries in central Ohio!

Many Catholics and others of the Christian faith abstain from eating meat on Fridays during Lent, and instead choose to eat fish. We asked NBC4 viewers where their favorite places are to get their fried fish fix in central Ohio.

Here are our viewers’ choices for the best fish fries in the area (we’ve also included a list of parish fish fries from the Catholic Times):

As it says on their menu, every night is a Friday night fish fry at Old Bag of Nails. This small central Ohio-based chain is a perennial favorite when it comes to British-style fish and chips.
