We ate there last week the fish was thin and the shrimp was hard. The calamari was over cooked. It's a nice spot but I don't recommend eating there.

A good place for fried fish, kebobs, chicken and other sorts of dinners in a fast-paced setting in the River Market neighborhood. The line was long when we got there, but it moved well ... the locals seem to know the drill for ordering and picking up orders, but we first-timers managed to figure things out pretty quickly. No table... More

Don't let looks fool you when you walk in. You start by standing in line to give your order. There is a whole other dining area in the back of the restaurant off of the kitchen area. Food is very good. Be mindful if you order it "snappy" as the seasoning will be quite spicy. Highly recommend the grilled tilapia.

Our first trip here. The person who took our order did not seem very interested in offering suggestions and seemed a little irritated that we were having a little trouble deciding. I ordered water and was handed a glass and charged the same amount as had I ordered a soda or tea. The fish was ok, but overpriced for what... More

I love Flying Fish of Little Rock. Today I had a Tuesday Special for the first time ($9.99). It came with a grilled rainbow trout, grilled zucchini and squash, and red beans and rice. The fish was very fresh, and so were the veggies! I loved the taste as well as the amount of salt they put on them! It... More

The food was great. Great seafood and a good atmosphere. But the only bad thing was the serving part you have to go through a line and and wait and it's all confusing but over all a very good seafood joint.

Loved this little restaurant, within walking distance from our hotel, The Hampton Inn & suites. Set in an old building in the River Market area, one part warehouse, one part garage (with garage door still in tact) and one part thrift store, it feels cozy and dishes out lots of southern comfort food. Grouper and tilapia were very good. Kids... More

Loved it - no frills - big whiteboard menu, lots of choices, but fast and friendly service, even for an alien like me. THE best catfish I ever tasted (the only catfish, honestly, but it was RIDICULOUSLY good). Fast, fresh, hot food, served casually, but just loved the atmosphere - locals eating good food. Just GO!! :) Cheap too.

Just okay. After reading reviews on Trip Advisors my husband and I thought we would check out this restaurant. We went to dinner at 7:00 pm so we expected a line. The line was out the door but moved along at a fast pace. I had the whole catfish and my husband had the grilled trout. My catfish was okay.... More

So when here on business, I eat here 2 to 3 times and never regret it! Fried okra, fried catfish, fried shrimp and fried oysters...OK, so I... More
