LOVELAND, OH (February 10, 2021) – The St. Columban Fish Fry is back with Drive-thru and Carry-out options beginning Friday, February 19.

St. Columban Fish Fry returns with Drive-thru and other options (Provided)

The annual Lenten Season Friday Fish Fry brought to you by the St. Columban Boosters will include some new safe options with Drive-thru order and pick-up and online ordering and pick-up options for carry-out. After being shut down by the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic one year ago, the fish fry returns starting February 19, and continues each Friday through the end of Lent (Friday, March 26). The Fish Fry will be serving up all your favorites in the drive-thru line from 5:00-8:00 p.m. each Friday. St. Columban will have all their most popular items including fried fish sandwiches, salmon, shrimp wraps, fish tacos, French fries, mac and cheese, pizza, and the gourmet salad!

Here’s how it works:


  • Vehicles enter the parking lot by St. Columban Church.
  • You’ll receive a pencil and order form.
  • You then proceed from the back of the parking lot, toward the Pre-K building (converted trailer) down the hill toward the school Playground.
  • There, a volunteer will take your order form and run your credit card. REMEMBER: Only credit card payment is accepted, NO CASH.
  • Then you continue to the front of the cafeteria where your order will be delivered to you in your car.
  • Then you’re on your way to enjoy a delicious meal.
