A Gem in Downtown Little Rock

Riding through downtown we saw FF & said, "lets eat there". Good call as the place was busy and obviously popular. We sat at a table only to realize that you go through the line to place your order so we got in line. The line moves fast so we had to make our selections from the ample choices -... read more

Ate here on a Wednesday night which is All You Can Eat Catfish. The place was busy, but service was super fast. I had the Catfish and Shrimp Basket (2 fillets and 6 Shrimp). It was very good. This catfish had a little too much batter on it for my taste but it was still good and served hot.

We recently visited the Flying Fish on Sunday after church. It is always one of our favorite spots and this time was no exception. We both ordered the six shrimp basket, me with fries and the wife with okra as a substitute. It was very fresh and the portions are plentiful. This is a great place for family and larger... More

I have eaten here on several occasions I can truly say that the food is always consistent and always good! Little Rock, does not have any GREAT seafood restaurants in my opinion, we always have to travel out of state for really good seafood but we do enjoy "Flying Fish". Keep up the good work!

This is a dive, but the line runs out the door. We had the best catfish (and I am not wild about fish). The way they fillet the whole fish and fry it, is just amazing. I am not good at eating fish with bones, but it's served so you don't have to know the tricks. We came back the... More

What a silly atmosphere, with all,of the mounted plastic talking fish and the "Liars Wall" with photos of patrons with the fish they caught. What delicious catfish, too! It was battered with a light, crunchy covering, and the fish was hot and steamy. The shrimp had that fresh gulf taste that we love. A favorite aspect was having real horseradish... More

This place has a cool atmosphere. Very casual with plastic checker board table cloths. I knew that if I had to wait in line on a Tuesday evening to order my food, this must be good. The catfish was very good. Flaky and not overcooked like many places do. Two filets and four shrimp platter was plenty for me. If... More

Great location in the heart of downtown Little Rock. The line to get in can get quite long but it is worth the wait. You order at the counter and they buzz you when your food is ready. All kinds of seafood and even some things for the landlubbers. Prices are reasonable. This is where everyone sends their "Billy Bass"... More
