Long John Silver's? is America's largest quick-service seafood chain with more than 1,200 units worldwide. The concept was developed in 1968 and the first Long John Silver's Fish 'n' Chips opened in 1969. Long John Silver's, whose name was inspired by Robert Louis Stevenson's classic Treasure Island, found overwhelming acceptance for this new approach. While the initial restaurants were small wharfside buildings, today's restaurants have updated exteriors that sport a stronger retail identity with bolder colors, accent stripes, illuminated canopies on drive-thrus, and a new roof design. 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.
