30 Omaha Fish Fries To Try In 2023

Lenten season means two things for Omaha-area residents – a time for personal sacrifice and reflection, as well fish fries. With more than 30 parishes and groups sponsoring fish fries in the Omaha area, you can find great food and fun times from Blair to Plattsmouth. Here’s a look at a few of the Omaha fish fries that you’re likely to enjoy a good meal and company.

Updated: I’m continuously updating this 2022 list of fish fries. Leave a comment if you have any additions!

Why fish fries?

Catholics honor their faith for a six-week period by surrendering something special to them as a way of recognizing the sacrifices made by Jesus Christ. Each Friday during lent, fish fries provide a sense of community and camaraderie among Catholics.

But, don’t think fish fries are just for Catholics; Greek Orthodox Church followers also celebrate the season with a fish fry, as well as community groups.

Holy Name Catholic Church fish fry

A fun thing about fish fries is that everyone is invited to enjoy fish and chips…and maybe an adult beverage or two. Fish fries are always family-friendly. It’s a quintessential Spring In Omaha experience.

Tip: Check the organization’s website or social media to verify times and dinner prices.
