People craving an out-of-this-world high that won't get them arrested can usually be found lining up at this small neighborhood seafood spot where the frills are on the fish and not the decor. Industrial kitsch is the best description of the Fish Joynt's interior, which tends to be on the loud side, but you don't come here for the decor: Simple, fresh fish is the draw, prepared in a multitude of ways, including the Chilean sea bass in sweet-and-sour glaze or the grouper oreganato. If you like shrimp, order the shrimp cocktail -- the crustaceans are absolutely Jurassic size. Every meal comes with irresistible potato pancakes rather than your average boring baked potato. No matter what you order, however, you're guaranteed to experience a high of sorts, thanks to the stellar quality of this one-of-a-kind fish joint -- er, joynt.
