The Best

I love the Flying Fish. Great. I hate the long lines but when you are the best and have awesome food, everyone want to come by.

Whenever I am in Little Rock, dinner at the Flying Fish is a must. The seafood is great! The place is not fancy. The line will be out the door, but they are very efficient in getting out the food so don't let the line detour you. The oysters, shrimp, and crab legs are all good. I will absolutely be... More

Expect to start your experience by waiting in line by the street. YES, its that good! No worries though, the line moves fast! Enjoy checking out the 'liars wall' and the fish décor as you enter the first dining room. Grab a cold brewski, order at the counter, watch as the magic happens in the background, go sit where you...

I like this place. It's not fancy, but the seafood is great. There is a hustle about the place you have to appreciate. I like the peel & eat shrimp and the oysters. Yes, you stand in line to order and you have to go collect your food when it's ready. But the model works and they always seem busy.... More

Our family loves Flying Fish! We've been eating here for years & we have never had a bad meal. Our favorites are the fried catfish, fried shrimp, & even the chicken tenders. The gumbo is great and the grilled & blacked fish & shrimp are too. If you like your food spicy, tell them to "make it snappy!" So good!... More

We got there a little after 3 and there was a line but not out the door. You go past the tables to order in the back. There's one register. They have things termed appetizers and deserts, not sure why because it all comes out at the same time. We got the Hula Poppers, 2 piece catfish baskets, and fried... More

Loved the decor and the food was good! I had fried oysters and hush puppies. I should have gotten more fried oysters and no hush puppies.

The Flying Fish is an unassuming joint with great food served simply at reasonable prices. Order at the counter for an eclectic mix of grilled broiled or fried fish and wonderful sides. The grilled veggie side was cooked perfectly. The salmon was served snappy which is a tasty pepper seasoning that slightly masks the actual foods' flavor but makes the... More

Very convenient to the Little Rock Marriott Downtown, which made it my choice on many of the days that I stayed in Little Rock. Fresh food fast, and affordable prices!! I would definitely recommend it.

I went with a large group at lunch on a Saturday, and the line was out the door. We had to wait a long time to order. I got fried catfish, and it was not that great. The fries and hushpuppies that came with the fish were not even just ok. Everyone else in my party had crab legs, and... More
