Lawrence’s Fisheries

Since it opened in a tiny dock space in 1950, Lawrence’s Fisheries has been plying the Chicago community with fresh seafood, including the best fried shrimp in the city, according to Chicago Magazine. The legacy started with founder Lawrence Schweig, whose commercial fishing operation on Lake Michigan reeled in fresh fish. Two generations later, the staff still uses family recipes and a signature breading process to churn out specialties such as fried large shrimp, frog legs, and bone-in catfish. Customers can get their fried fixings–as well as sandwiches and decadent desserts–24 hours a day. The counter spot retains its homey feel with picnic table seating and by serving its breaded bundles in white paper bags.

Reviews

Large shrimp are delicious, tender, with a killer crunchy breading!

It is tasty! We had catfish and shrimp. We called ahead and our meal was hot and ready we arrived.
