No floundering here seeking a local fish fry: Olmsted Dates and Data

OLMSTED FALLS, Ohio – Fish was definitely on the menu Friday throughout the community.

Hungry customers waited patiently in line to order as they stood socially distanced throughout the large lobby at the Donauschwaben German-American Cultural Center on Columbia Road.

Mark Givens of North Olmsted waited a few minutes in the center’s main dining hall after he placed his order in the lobby. He was feeding nine that night at his home. Mark said he waited about 30 minutes in the to-order line. It was his first time having the center’s fish fry.

“We’ve been here before for other events,” he said. “I came here for the fish fry because it’s the closest and I heard it’s the best.”
