Long John Silver’s Quality – Not only is LJS’ food craveable and delicious, it is sourced responsibly and its quality is unsurpassed in the restaurant industry. Long before sustainability became an industry buzzword, Long John Silver’s was creating strategic partnerships with those who shared the vision of fishing smarter with less environmental impact. Wild-caught fish come from the deep waters of the Bering Sea while other items such as shrimp are sourced from only the best managed supply partners. Long John Silvers’ seafood is antibiotic free, hormone free, GMO free, additive free and contains no artificial colors or flavors.
