    What kind of fish would it be? If it’s something like shrimp, crabcakes, lobster, etc., I would think that with a combo of steak or chicken would be most pleasing for your guests.  If it’s a fillet of fish, I think a chicken and steak combo may be best.

    It’s a wedding I think you should go with steak and fish…a surf and turf option.  The chicken option sounds really heavy with the phyllo dough and cream sauce to be paired against the steak. 

    Most weddings I have been to with a duo has been steak/fish.

    Avoid fish if at all possible. While some people love it, more than not actually hate the taste, texture and smell, and won’t eat anything else that is on the plate with it. If you must have a combo plate, go with the chicken and steak.

    We haven’t decided on a caterer yet; however, if we go for a combination plate, we will not be serving any type of fish. The steak and chicken is a safer bet. A lot of people do not like fish and others’ are allergic. We will be offering a vegetarian option as well, so I say go with the steak and chicken option.

    This is a tough one! I kinda feel like fish can’t be on the same plate as steak. It just doesn’t go! And that chicken and steak would be TOO MUCH meat (then again I don’t eat it so…) but goes better than Steak and Fish. And I think the best choice or the best sounding one is chicken and fish…although for meateaters steak is more special than chicken. So I am not sure what to tell you except if I had had had to choose I’d choose chicken and fish.

    I agree with the others that chicken and steak would be too much meat together. But if you have fish be sure to ask your guests about any allergies! My mom is allergic to shellfish, so even having it on the plate with the other meat would be an issue for her. If it’s just a filet of fish that may be less of an issue, but if it’s crabcakes or shrimp you should definitely be careful.
