This community landmark restaurant known for extra generous fried fish sandwiches and humungous hand breaded pork tenderloins has been serving the Columbus Indiana area for more than 75 years. Locals find the charming bright blue building on 17th Street easy to recognize and find, just 2 blocks East of Central Avenue before reaching the local hospital. Visitors from across the nation stop in for Ye Olde Fish House’s famous Alaskan White fish sandwiches. This tiny home-style restaurant serves up wonderful home cooked meals in a family friendly relaxed atmosphere.
Ye Olde Fish House definitely does not get their fish from the square food factory. Full fish fillets which are breaded in our fifty year old "secret" batter recipe stacked so high you don’t think your mouth can open that far. Service is fast, and certainly more welcoming than chain restaurants. Even though you can’t order on line you can stand in line and it won’t take long, service is quick and always courteous.  For large orders or pick-ups you can “Phone a Fish!"

Walk in the door, head to the counter, order your fish or tenderloin sandwich with your favorite toppings, and add your choice of “fried taters”, real mac and cheese, green beans or the soup of the day. Try one of Nancy's secret recipes: the hand shredded cole slaw or kidney bean salad, both are fresh daily. Side dishes vary but all are good home-cooking. No fuss, no muss at Ye Olde Fish House. Just pull up a chair at any of the tables, fill your own coke from the machine, you can even pick out your own pie from the nearby counter, the Pecan is exceptional. It all takes place here in America’s heartland, at Ye Olde Fish House, where family recipes are prepared carefully from the heart and a heartfelt thank you accompanies every order. Heart smart actually means more than just what’s fried, it is caring for our patrons. We fry in pure clear canola oil and for our Seniors - "no salt added".
