In Memphis, you gotta eat at Flying Fish. Just off Beale Street and across from the Peabody. We had the fried combo basket with catfish and shrimp. The breading was crisp and light. The fish and shrimp were tender and flavorful. Order the red beans...and rice as a side. The BEST I’ve ever eaten!! The frozen margarita was fun and delicious, and they didn’t skimp on the tequila. Definitely going back to Flying Fish every time we’re in Memphis.More

After a night of debauchery on Beale Street, we were looking for a solid hangover food aka a shrimp Poboy! The Flying fish did not disappoint! My shrimp Poboy was delicious served up with french fries. Good job with CoronaV measures in place.

Food was good and fresh. Not very busy and right off Main Street. Mediocre experience. Better options around.

The place looks dingy and honestly, once we entered, we decided not to eat there. A little light and a cleaner look will certainly help this establishment.

Don't be put off by the cafe style decor, or having to order at the counter. The fish/ seafood served here is excellent and plentiful and the place is always busy with locals which as always a good sign. Read the menu and decide what...you want before stepping up to be served or you will find a very long queue behind you. Another great find if you want local grub.More

Excellent snow crab & the boiled potato was great when dipped in the butter! I didn’t like the Cajun powder that was sprinkled on everything but husband did...matter of choice.

Stopped in to get some seafood here during a visit to Memphis and I was very surprised at the food. The food was really good. Had the catfish and fries and some fried pickles there. All very good. Staff was friendly and received food faster...than expected.More

We have now had 3 meals here, each better than the best. Of course we love fresh fish and they offer a huge variety at fast food prices (don't know how they do it!)
