Be prepared to wait if you go on a Saturday night. They are extremely busy. I phoned in my order. They told me it would be ready in 15 mins. I arrived approximately 20 mins later and I still had to wait for my order another 35 mins.

From Our Editors

Since it opened in a tiny dock space in 1950, Lawrence's Fish and Shrimp 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 brown paper bags.
