A quick-service locale for landlubbers to dine on deep-fried seafood and Southern-inspired sides.. In Short Ashore since 1969 and inspired by Robert Louis Stevenson's "Treasure Island," this pirate-themed fast-food chain has since gone global. Batter-dipped fish, chicken and shrimp "planks" are the menu staples, combined with fries, coleslaw, hushpuppies, corn and desserts to create value baskets and Treasure Chest Family Meals. Several locations also feature sister-company menus from Taco Bell, Pizza Hut, KFC and A&W. Fish sandwiches, fried veggie bites and salads are also available.
