Mac's Fish & Chips
After spending seven seasons with the North Stars, Tom McCarthy finished his NHL career in Boston, but still he couldn't shake his Minnesota roots. In 1991, he transformed an old St. Paul gas station into a full-fledged fish shack. Since taking over the operation, father and son Dan and Tom Flanagan have grown Mac's—the namesake remains—into a restaurant named one of the five best locales for fish and chips by CBS Minnesota, serving hand-battered cuts of fried cod, walleye, and halibut with baskets of hand-cut fries.
As plastic lights shaped like walleye switch on over the outdoor patio, cooks plate the fish with sides such as coleslaw, cheese curds, and homemade bites of saltwater taffy, Poseidon's favorite adhesive. At the Minneapolis location, you can also get wine or beer along with your meal—or, for that matter, counteract the effects of a wild night out with a delightfully messy heap of poutine.
