Very disappointing. Fish was very greasy and caused stomach upset. The cole slaw tasted as if it had been sitting in the refrigerator for a couple of days. The manager asked me if I was pleased with my order and I told him no. When I told him the problem he offered me another order of cole slaw - Really?... More

We were hellbent on some fish tacos, so we went to the Long John Silvers in Dickson City around 8:30 pm on a Monday night. It seemed devoid of customers before we walked in. Upon entry, the restaurant was not clean, there was no one at the front counter, but we could hear the workers in the back. A woman... More

The breaded and fried fish is very good if you like this style. I do. I like to use both vinegar and tarter sauce as the fish sides and of course some ketchup with the fries. LJ's cole slaw is also pretty good. Not world class but all these items just support the great fish fry anyway. of fries and... More

Long John's is one of our guilty pleasures particularly since it left the Buffalo area. There was a $5 snack pack that worked just fine for our road trip. The line is not long, but it takes quite a long time for a drive through experience. Also, watch the sides, the cheese curds come with an additional 1.50 price tag... More

I could eat their crispy fried fish every day, I think and never tire of it. I need not look up at the menu board because I just want the fish. And the place is clean and service is good.

Been around forever. Still offering fast & friendly service and quality food. Always clean. Still love their standard fish fillets over any other item they offer.

My husband and daughter and myself recently ordered food at the drive in at Long John Silvers. It was a weekend and around 4 PM. We ordered the sampler. The food was cold, we received scallops instead of shrimp, and no French fries. We realized that they just dumped whatever there was available or left, as it was not busy... More

I am not a fish fan, but I love eating here. the batter dipped chicken and milkshakes can't be beat. On occasion I'll grab an A&W float. Food is always tasty and the staff is really nice.

LJS has some pretty greasy food, like all fast food places. They have the best batter, though. It really makes the fish and shrimp. I don't go there often, but sometimes just want a shrimp or two, not necessarily one of those huge combination platters of a million calories, but a couple shrimp or a piece of fish is tasty.
