Robert Louis Stevenson may or may not have been imagining a chain of fast food restaurants serving batter-dipped fish and hushpuppies when naming Treasure Island's main character. Regardless, the name has served Long John Silver's well. The chain has expanded from a single Louisville, Kentucky restaurant in 1969 to a franchise with more than 1,200 locations including Minneapolis / St. Paul. Besides fish and "chicken planks," LJS also fries up clams and shrimp for a variety of platters flanked by French fries and coleslaw. Though newer locations eschew the nautical theme of yesteryear in favor of more modern digs, the large bell by the exit (customers are encouraged to ring it if they received good service) remains in each eatery. Long John Silver's always easy to find on Voice Places.
