Carmichael's was located on 4th Street. The building was torn down when the Commons Mall was built.
David Sechrest Historic Columbus Indiana Progress should not ignore its roots and pillage our heritage in the process. Cultural, social, and historical should be part of the process, for it is the path and not the destination that is important - S. Givens
Actually, Dave, the first Carmichaels Fish Sandwich shop was on Jackson, between 5th and 6th and West side of Jackson. Owned by Carmel Carmichael. I used to run around with his grandson and they lived on Sycamore across from Wilson. Anyway, Carmel would only open when he got whitefish from Lake Superior. No fish that day == Closed! Made for a "superior" quality fish sandwich. A "not too" close imitation today is the "ye old fish house" on 16th. Not a bad fish sandwich, but Carmel's was the best.
Carmichael's had the best fish sandwich I have ever eaten. There is none to compare to it. When we returned to Columbus for a visit that is the first thing we had to have to know we were home. Would love to have one today!!!!!
