Long John Silver's is a fast food restaurant that sells mainly seafood.

It was created in 1969 in Lexington, Kentucky. The name for the restaurant is named after Long John Silver from the novel Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson. They used to be a private owned company but they went bankruptcy in 1998.

Their parent company Yum! sold Long John Silver's to LJS Partners LLC and A&W Restaurants to A Great American Brand LLC in September 2011 to focus on expanding in China.[2]
