Vegan Options at Long John Silver’s (Updated 2023)

Long John Silver's Vegan Options

You might not expect for the vegan options to be great at a place known for deep frying fish and chicken and, well, you’d be right. There are a couple vegetable choices that are vegan and that’s about it.

And if you were really hoping for the hush puppies to be vegan, unfortunately, they contain milk and egg.

In 2021, we had the opportunity to try out Good Catch’s Crab Less Crab Cakes and Fish Fillet at one of Long John Silver’s test sites and did a full review. (spoiler alert: loved them!)

Our Picks

Ryan’s Pick: We stopped at Long John Silvers today, July 21, 2021, to try the test of Good Catch Foods’ Crab-less Cakes and Fish-less Fillets with the cut corn and green beans as sides.

The crab cakes and fish fillets were incredible. The corn was much better than expected and the green beans were just ok–nothing special. 

Jen’s Pick:  I have only had the cut corn here and thought it was better than expected as well.
