Sorry I don't know for your area but in the town I live (Clinton in Hunterdon county) there is the best fresh fish store http://www.metroseafood.com/ which does fish and chips to beat many fish and chip shops in the UK, and I can say that without worry as I'm a Brit ) Honestly, it is really the best, freshest fish I have tasted in a long time and I highly recommend it.

The old classics are in Kearney where there used to be a very large Scottish community. There are a couple of Fish and Chips stores there on Kearney Ave., the Argyle and the Thistle, with malt vinegar too.

The have some kind of cult status, but as a Scot, I can say that I found them a little disappointing as the batter was not thick and gluey enough and they don't serve proper chips but fries. There are genuine Scots working in the Argyle and they know about the chips problem but most of the customers are now Americans of Scottish descent who don't know any better.

For fish, there are some places in Point Pleasant I really like, mostly because the fish is so fresh. Same chips/fries problem though. I like 'em real, cut from potatoes and a bit soggy.

Not really..lol : )) You scots sure do love your chips...Fish & Chips...Egg & Chip...Chip Buttey...gross by the way : )) Everything is a buttey! lol : )) Ok, one more question fur ya (that's the extent of my accent)... Rangers or Celtic?
