We hit this LJS at 10;30 when the sign said open. Doors didn't open until 10;45,but the food was hot and fresh,along with fast service. The service was quick,although the employees seemed a bit distant. Prices seem to go up every time,I do LJS,so for the dollar,you might consider other places.. The LJS is now run by corporate after a... More

If this is the quality of Long John Silver today. We will never stop again. Fish was poorly cooked and the staff was indifferent.

We were delighted to find you! So disappointed when your Watertown NY store closed. VERY generous portions!

I rarely give poor reviews but I was unfortunate enough to have eaten at Long John Silver on Lincoln Way East in Chambersburg today. I won't make this mistake again. I got food poisoning from the fish. It was piping hot when it came through the drive-thru window so it must have been contaminated before they fried it. Friendly faces... More

I miss the old Arthur Treacher's. But Long John's has filled in pretty well. Many customers focus on the fish and seafood choices but after tasting the chicken a long time ago, I find it hard to resist. Other highlights are the excellent cole slaw, the opportunity to get green beans or corn on the cob, and the great hushpuppies.... More

Occasionally I succumb to the aroma that pulls me in to Long John Silvers. I saw that now they have a few entrees that are "baked." I didn't realize that until after I ordered my fish, fries, and hush puppy. I enjoyed my meal and made a decision to return someday to try the baked dinner option. Sometimes it is... More

LJS has what I believe is the best fish and chips around and prices are good, service is good, and this place never failed to satisfy. It IS on a busy corner though.

I bought the family pack. It took awhile but that's understandable. Coleslaw and hushpuppies was excellent but the fish and chicken were really greasy. I know it's not a real healthy choice but it was exceptionally greasy.

My wife loves this place and so do I. Sadly, it is a little run down and some idiot tour bus driver hit the drive through order board, so it has been down for a while, but when last there, they said they had been bought by a new company that was alreadys tarting on redoing everything. Good value on... More

I've been going to this since they opened... it used to be ok - now it's just a shame what they've left it go to. Service was poor and the food just so-so. Drive up is supposed to be quick, right?
