As a teen, Ted Phillips learned to scale, clean, and fillet fish in Arcade Seafoods’ kitchen. Out front, he stocked shelves, scrubbed display cases, and mopped floors. The budding restaurateur’s devotion to Arcade Seafoods led him to purchase the business in 1992, and he’s been manning the counter ever since, as featured in the Dayton Daily News. Mr. Phillips maintains the eatery’s tradition of frying catfish, perch, and haddock in crispy batter, serving them with traditional Southern sides such as baked beans and hush puppies. :m]]
