Great seafood for downtown LR

Really neat place in downtown Little Rock. Easy access from side of street and parking garage. Fresh fish and cheap draft beer. I always get the grilled tilapia and vegetables as I have found it to be the best tasting healthy option for me. You can "Make it Snappy" which add spicy seasoning to... read more

Came in for business lunch with colleague. My second trip to this location, his first. Equally impressed with taste, quality, atmosphere, and value. Definitely a must stop place in Little Rock!

Flying Fish is a casual place, stand in line to order and find your own table, pagers to notify you your food is ready. Self serve beverages and condiments. Catfish is fantastic, other options including shrimp and oysters are top notch. Prices are very good for the amount of food provided.

It's a wait, but it is well worth it. The catfish is GREAT. The fried shrimp and oysters are good as well. I frequent this restaurant often. When visitors come to town, I tell them to visit this restaurant.

If you are in downtown Little Rock and want deep fried shrimp, catfish or fresh oysters, this is the place to go. They crank it out and it is always top notch. One of my favorite places to eat!!

This is a great fried food place with a range of items. You could have catfish, shrimp, chicken, and other items, you also have to option to "Make it Snappy" adding a extra kick! This is a great place to stop in and eat in downtown.

If you like good Southern Fried Catfish and the fixins, then The Flying Fish is the place to visit in Little Rock. It's a very, very casual place. We ordered and within a few minutes our food was at the table. Everything was very, very good. The prices are all reasonable and the portions were large.
