A few months ago, Wichita Fish Co. moved to a new location at 818 N. Mosley. This all took place after a leasing dispute that led them to close their West Douglas location after nearly 30 years in business. The new building which takes over the former Rachel’s Kitchen space is much smaller and cut their seating by roughly 60. We finally made it out to their new location to get our own firsthand look at the space… and of course get some food.

The new space was definitely smaller. Only five tables were available. Fortunately, a majority of customers ordered carryout. I was told, they’ve seen an uptick in carryout orders so that was nice to hear.
For our dinner, we ordered the fried tilapia, Atlantic salmon dinner and the dinner portion of frog legs. Everything is made to order so it does take some time. The lady at the counter quoted everyone at roughly 20 minutes to have orders completed.
But when we received our food, it was worth the wait. Everything was delicious.
The fried tilapia had a nice thin breading that was well-seasoned and really flavorful. The Atlantic salmon dinner was quite the pile of food. It was a huge cut that easily filled me up. There was some creole seasoning on the counter and I doused my salmon with it to give it some additional kick. Both meals had an insane amount of food. It was a shock we were able to finish both of them between the two of us.
But we still had to eat some frog legs! I absolutely adore everything about frog legs. Is it even grammatically correct to say you adore frog legs? I don’t care because I’m sticking with it. Wichita Fish Company’s frog legs were tender. Just like the tilapia, the breading was soft and thinly layered. It tasted a little like chicken for those that have never had frog legs but had a more mild flavor to it. They might have been the best frog legs I’ve had in a restaurant in Wichita.
It was quite the feast for us and one that left us not wanting to eat for days afterwards. Everything was fresh and cooked to perfection. I’ve been to the original Wichita Fish Company many times and always enjoyed my meals there. I was happy to see that tradition carry over to their new location.
Here’s the menu:
