Lawrence's Fisheries

Seafood in Pilsen & Near South Side

There's not much to look at inside this 24-hour joint, but the window at the end of the long dining room frames a stunning scene of the Willis Tower over the Chicago River. Not that you have much option but to stand agape once your order arrives – delicious treats such as popcorn shrimp, oysters and fish and chips are stalwarts.

Frog legs and scallops round out the menu of batter-crusted goodies from the sea. At night the parking lot outside of this typically family-oriented joint is a prime location for locals to sit on car hoods and shop for suspiciously current DVDs.
