Bailey's in Dearborn is my favorite. Great big pieces of Cod and awesome batter. Large portion of food as well. They have a fantastic beer selection and an awesome happy hour! Bailey's other two locations in Canton and Troy are ok, but Dearborn is by far the best of the three.

During the Lenten season, some of the better ones are at the local Catholic churches, of which there are a big selection. Just right, in most cases.
I have a taste for a good redfish dinner though.

Not sure how easy it is to get into...But also in dearborn, the city workers Union puts on an amazing fish fry, can't be beat because its all homemade. If you know any city workers, they usually do it as a fundraiser.

Two excellent fish fries in Detroit - one west side one east side.
St. Francis of Assisi on Wesson & Buchanan (Michigan & Livernois area). Every Friday 11a-6p. Old school fish fry - some of the best I ever tasted. Sweet old women and men serving it up! Price is $8 and includes fish, fries, cole slaw, fruit cup, bread/butter, cake and beverage. Wonderful experience!!
Sweetest Heart of Mary - 4440 Russell at Canfield. Every Friday from 3p-8p. Fried fish, baked fish, mac/cheese, pierogi's, salad bar, fried shrimp. Stations of the Cross in the church at 6:30 - food and prayers, you can't go wrong.
Patronize your local parish fish fry!

Rock Bottom in Windsor. It's halibut rather than cod. It's the best I've had. Great chips too.

I'll second Ednaturnblad. St. Francis of Assisi and Sweetest Heart of Mary have excellent fish fries in beautiful historic churches. Nothing beats inner-city fish fries made by bushas. Delicious.

Have to agree with Gazhekwe's recommendation of Scotty Simpson's on five mile. Just got back from there and it was as good as ever.
The folks that run the place are fantastic. The bride and I had forgotten they don't take plastic and we didn't discover our oversight until after we ordered. Harry (the owner)said not to worry about it, just come on back next week with the dough.

I wasn't impressed with Scotty Simpson, the perch, walleye and shrimp all tasted the same, too heavy of a batter too

One of, if not the BEST, Fish was at the Old Mill which was located in an old bank on the corner of Conant and Carpenter.

I'll chime in the third vote for Chick's Bar. It's on W. Warren, just 5 blocks west of the Southfield Fwy.

Thanks for the many recommendations for delicious Friday Fish Fry dinners.
I found the following resource via the Archdiocese of Detroit for its parish Fish Fry list:
Archdiocese of Detroit Friday Fish Fry in Metro Detroit
Does anyone have a list of suggestions for local Knights of Columbus, F.O.E. posts, and so on?

in the Downtown area I love the Friday fish fry during Lent at the Gaelic League. Their fish & chips is even better than any I had on a visit to England in 2007.
Chick's is great on the far west side, and Sweetest Heart of Mary is a decent Lent fish fry also.
