Jim's Fish Fry, that first opened in Syracuse in 1944, is serving up it's last meal this month. The Easterly family broke the sad news on Facebook.
We are very sorry to announce that we will be closing our doors at the end of business on April 16, 2021. These are tough times and this was a tough decision. We wish to sincerely thank you for your patronage and loyalty. We appreciate all the kind words, laughs and smiles that have made serving you a pleasure and privilege. We have made many fish sandwiches and met many wonderful people. Thank you for all the great memories.
Fred and Rosalie Easterly named the restaurant for their son Jim who was serving in the Navy. He ran the business for several years before passing away in 2019, according to Syracuse.com. Jim's son Bill has been running the restaurant but is ready to retire.
