Although seafood is one of the last things on my mind when I visit Las Vegas, sometimes I crave fish and chips. While it might sound strange to eat seafood in the middle of the desert, Las Vegas is a foodie city with plenty of great seafood restaurants.

One of the best places in Las Vegas for fish and chips is Fulton Fish Frye, located inside the Village Eateries at the New York-New York Hotel.

Often overlooked, this fast-casual restaurant, where you order at the counter and find a table, offers fresh-to-order food, fair prices, and generous portions in a casual environment.

Interior of Fulton Fish Frye

Fulton Fish Frye is a counter-style restaurant. You order with the cashier at the counter. After ordering, you get a receipt with a number and wait for the number to be called. Then, you return to the counter to get your food when you hear your number.

Therefore, the only interior of the restaurant was the kitchen. I enjoyed peeking into the kitchen to watch the chefs at work while they chatted. It reminded me of restaurants in New York.

While the restaurant did not have dedicated seating, plenty of tables were scattered around the Village Eateries food court. All the tables were open and shared by the multiple restaurants in the food court. So, you can grab any table that you want.

Fulton’s Fish & Chips

The most popular item on the menu, which I ordered, was Fulton’s Fish & Chips ($14.95). This simple plate came with fresh fish fillets and chips. In today’s world, with higher prices and smaller portions, I was surprised to see two large fish pieces on the plate.

The breading was crispy and golden brown, remaining crunchy without getting soggy. It was airy, light, and perfectly crispy, with the right amount of richness that did not overpower the fish’s flavors. The only thing missing was a slice of lemon, but I could look past this since the breading was not overly rich.

The fish fillets, which were thick but not too dense, were cooked well with a moist, flakey texture and a salty flavor. Though most likely cod and previously frozen, the texture of the fish was not dry or spongy, which often happens with frozen fish.

Hidden under the fish were thick-cut chips, which were fresh-cut and served hot. The chips had a crispy exterior and fluffy, tender interior. They were basic but well-cooked, seasoned with salt and black pepper, adding texture and flavor.

In the end, these fish and chips were simple yet executed well. While it wasn’t the best I’ve ever had, the crunchy and rich breading, moist fish, and fresh chips hit the spot.


As mentioned earlier, you order from the counter at Fulton Fish Frye and find your own table. Therefore, my interaction with the staff was limited to ordering and grabbing my food.

The staff was friendly and smiled the whole time I interacted with them. They seemed to enjoy doing their job. And the staff seemed to know other workers in the casino who would stop by to say hello.

Finally, my order arrived quickly and correctly.


You won’t find Fulton Fish Frye at the top of anyone’s list of the best restaurants in Las Vegas. But it doesn’t mean this often overlooked counter-only restaurant in New York-New York isn’t worth trying.

The fish was delicious, with its salty, slightly rich breading and moist, flaky flesh. And the fresh chips were crispy on the outside and tender on the inside.

There may be better fish and chips options in Las Vegas. However, for the price, portion size, and quality, I recommend Fulton Fish Frye when you’re craving fish and chips on the Las Vegas Strip.
