The fried shrimp basket is just great, but so is the grilled fish. Not so much the grilled veggies, they're kind of soggy and limp. But the fried shrimp, fish, french fries and hush puppies are worth the trip! And if you get the card for Flying Fish stamped, you get a free meal after ten!! Prices are reasonable to... More

This restaurant is one of our favorites! It appears to be family owned and run. Be ready to expect great fried catfish, hush puppies and fries. (My husband's dpfavorites) I order salmon, which is grilled, and specify "dry" so there won't be lots of oil or butter. (Still it is never "dry" just less buttery). Red beans and rice are... More

Although I have had their fish and shrimp and seafood soup(?) I really recommend the grilled vegetable plate. They are simply delicious and a very ample plateful indeed. A good variety of veggies, and I especially enjoyed their squash.

Went here with a group of classmates for lunch. The place was pretty busy, but we didn't have to wait too long to get our order placed and find a seat. It took a little longer to get the food though. It was hot and fresh. My Po' Boy had a clean taste, but the bread was not as fresh... More

My wife had the fish tacos, which she orders at just about every time they're on a menu and she didn't like them, my son had the snapper vera cruz and liked it, but he didn't care for the Mexican cocktail, I had the gumbo which I thought was very good. The jalapeno appetizers were way overcooked to the point... More

Best Salmon Tacos in town. Cold beer. Casual place to join family or friends. Friendly staff. Don't see it on the Menu don't hesitate to ask if they can fix it for you. Great experience!

I love the taste of the food here, but the portions are small and if you want to add to your basket, they upcharge you too much.
