There are 2 restaurants across from little cubs field. Fieldstone and Canovas. The fish fry is at Logans Bar and grill ...I believe the fish is cod. I live fried fish but I always get grilled there its just that good lol.

Good to hear, I am staying there too. It had a good rating and reviews on Hotel.com, but input from a local is always accurate.
