during our holiday we had the dinner every night here. The boiled crab is trully good, just as the king crab is. I am not sure ever had better king crab actually.

Stopped yesterday for a quick lunch and if was very good and prices were very reasonable. We saw a sign for 75¢ oysters on the half shell on Sundays, so we had to go back today. We were not disappointed. The oysters were very good, plus each of us ordered a dozen and received 16.

We chose this restaurant based on reviews we read on tripadvisor and we weren't disappointed. Pricing is about average and, if you don't like the service, you have no one to blame but yourself because you order and pick-up at the counter, and the rest (except beer refills) is self-service. It wasn't 'fine dining' as much as it was 'fun... More

We had a great lunch at the flying fish. My catfish basket was just the right size for noontime, my wifw had the shrimp salad, both were delicious.

We love a dive restaurant. The food was really good and the guys behind the counter were really nice. We had the shrimp po' boy, fried frog leg and gumbo. Hush puppies too good to just eat 2. Be aware the sweet tea is extra sweet. I mixed half sweet half regular and it was perfect. You could sit there... More

We dropped in for a late meal and the food was good and the service great. Very relaxed atmosphere. Probably not for those who go for fine dining but great for a quick meal and sit back and look at all of the interesting items on display around the restaurant.

It is a local place right downtown with counter order and they deliver your food. If you like good seafood - go here. You can get your fish fried, grilled or however you want it. The veggies that come along side are also grilled and wonderful. My husband had so much food but ate it all. He had calamari, a... More

This was our first catfish experience and was really good. It is very cheap as you go up to the counter yourself and collect your food when it is ready. We had fried catfish and shrimp with fries and hush puppies. We loved the look of the place as the walls are decorated with hundreds of Big Mouth Billy Basses... More

What a unique place that serves really great good. Second time here and I can't wait for the next time I can stop back. From the food to the stuff on the wall to the open air seating, this place is a gem
