Cornmeall breaded fish piled so high, that you need to hold with both hands. Fried to perfection, top it with their cole slaw & you will have one of the best fish sandwiches that can be found in Florida.

We drove from Clearwater just for lunch, and it was totally worth it! It's a small walk up restaurant staffed by a bunch of mature ladies wearing Jesus saves shirts cooking and taking orders. They're a bit sassy but that is part of the place's charm. Along with the chicken we tried the mashed potatoes with gravy, fries and biscuits.... More

I am disturbed by all the reviews that claim how good, great, or delicious the food is at Country Chicken & Fish!!! Before each trip, I often search for the "Best" restaurants to plan my meals. 8 out of 10 times, the reviews have been misleading, because they are written by people who have "limited" appreciation for "great" food. This... More

Country chicken and fish is a take place out with a walk up window. We haven't tried the chicken but the fish is delicious and cooked to perfection. Baked beans are superb and the coleslaw is among the best we have ever tasted. Hush puppies too. They're pretty busy so don't expect fast food, just great food.

GF said she wanted some chicken livers and gizzards, so off we went. What a wonderful surprise and the gizzards as yummy, tender, flavorful, and makes you want more and more and more. The livers were delicious, very tender, moist, and cooked to perfection -- not a hard one in the bunch. Perfect place to go for your chicken livers... More

I think they have the best fried chicken period! Love their corn nuggets also! It is a drive thru or order at the window, you don't eat in but you can eat under the trees at the picnic tables.

Accidentally came across this drive thru restaurant in an ethnic neighborhood of Lakeland. Host of cars were lined up in addition to those parked in the little lot. We decided to try out the food which was quite good in terms of quality and value, particularly when compared against fast food chains such as KFC, Popeyes and others. We ordered... More

Driving across the state we happened upon this great establishment. It's places like this one that make me look for local everywhere I go. The fried chicken gizzards were somehow magically fried and almost as tender as the liver. It was the best I have ever eaten! And on top of the great food, the staff is friendly and helpful....

This food is TERRIFIC!!! And priced just right too. This is NOT a fast food place but it is made to order so the freshness is well worth the wait! The only drawback is no inside air conditioned place to dine in. They do have a few clean & nice picnic tables under some really big shady oaks right there.... More

What a little gem!! My sweetie and I decided to take a little road trip this afternoon and were told about country fish and chicken. If you're wanting a cute little place with a scenic view and a whiny waitress named Brittany, then this isn't the place for you. If, however, you're looking for good home cooked chicken and fish...
