Two and half years ago, the national chain Long John Silver's did the commercial below featuring weekly fish and chips at Nancy Whiskey's -- a little gem in a residential neighborhood off Trumbull in Detroit's Corktown.
Soon the bar, established in 1902, was packed on Fridays for fish and chips. "Our best-kept secret has gone national," one regular posted on Facebook. "Bittersweet, happy for you guys!"
Deadline Detroit stopped by on Friday to talk to owner Gerald Stevens about the impact of the commercial and how things are going at 2644 Harrison St.
