Long John Silver's® is America's largest quick-service seafood chain with more than 1,200 units worldwide. The first Long John Silver's Fish 'n' Chips opened in 1969 in response to growing consumer demand for quick-service seafood. This new approach gained overwhelming acceptance and has led to bold modern restaurants and a menu that meets the taste of today's consumers.
As the concept has grown, Long John Silver's menu has likewise evolved. Today, we offer a menu that meets the desire of consumers looking for more variety and great taste. Our exciting array of flavor profiles and taste sensations includes a variety of signature batter-dipped fish, chicken, and seafood; breaded fish; a signature sandwich line; salads and desserts.
Our promise, to provide each guest great tasting, reasonably priced fish, chicken and seafood in a fast and friendly manner on every visit ensures Long John Silver's position in American Culture.
