The Frisch’s Big Boy “Fishing Trip” Giveaway (Closed)

Frisch's Lenten Items

This contest has been closed. Congratulations to Stephanie W! You’ve just won a $100 gift card to Frisch’s and 10 passes to Newport Aquarium!!!

This Lenten season the folks at Frisch’s Big Boy have a new item joining their roster of Lenten-friendly dishes– the Haddock Fillet Dinner – and have asked us to help them celebrate its arrival.

The new Haddock Fillet Dinner features a whole fillet of North Atlantic haddock that is hand breaded and fried to order in the store fresh each day.

While we haven’t yet had a chance to try the Haddock, during our family’s visits to Frisch’s during Lent you’ll almost always find a basket of Fish-N-Chips on our table (along with a TON of tartar sauce).

So speaking of fish.. according to a press release, the folks at Frisch’s sell more than 421 tons of breaded cod each year! The release stated that if you laid the pieces of cod end-to-end, it would stretch across the length of nearly 3,000 football fields.

To celebrate the launch of its new Haddock Fillet Dinner, Frisch’s has given us a prize package to giveaway that is beyond exciting.  Not only are they giving us a $100 Frisch’s gift card…. they are also giving us 10 general admission passes to the Newport Aquarium! One lucky FFC reader will “reel in” the “big catch” and take home both the $100 gift card and the 10 passes to Newport Aquarium!

  8. Debbie Loges says

    Frischs Big Boy has been a favorite in our family for generation. I remember my Grandparent getting us dress nice to go sit in the slick booths and having a Big boy with extra tarter sauce, Onion rings, and if we were good a chocolate milk shake. Oh what a treat. Now that my kids are older, I love to have a fishwich with extra tarter sauce and a bowl of veggie soup just like my Grandma loved to get. Thanks for the memories.

  9. Sandy Whisman says

    The soup and salad bar! I used to get the portabello mushroom burger but you stopped making them!

    fish sandwhich and diet vanilla coke (i defeats the purpose when I put the vanilla syrup in it!)

  22. Sara P says

    I don’t have a favorite I like everything! However, both my boys (5,3 yr) always want to order the salad bar. I finally figured out it’s because they only want the jello.

    My favorite thing at Frisch’s is the crispy fish dinner (and not because it’s Lent-I don’t “do” Lent). And I love the cherry coke.

  27. amy says

    I love their tuna melt. I also love being able to take my kids to a family friendly place where they can get more than just a greasy burger and fries. They love their grilled cheese dipped in frisch tartar sauce and I love that they can get a side salad, mac and cheese, and vegetables as a side.

    I love their fish sandwich. Even when it’s not lent, I order it from time to time. It is SO much better than the other fast food restaurants out there.
