I went here for lunch w some work friends and I was pleasantly surprised by the quality and taste of the seafood. Flying Fish has a laidback atmosphere and a wide variety of seafood offerings. I had the shrimp and chicken lunch combo. Really, really good. Stop here if you want seafood and you are near the Firewheel area of... More

I first ordered the oyster po boy and it was very good. I went back a second time and got the oyster dinner. I prefer them not fried to death and these were not. I loved the dinner . The only thing I do not like is the fries. Skinny fries are not my thing. The atmosphere is laid back... More

This place could be considered a seafood dive but it is in a nice strip center. Framed photos of every age taken with their "catch" are on every wall. The menu keeps changing adding more selections but the catfish is still good as ever. The pickled green tomatoes are great! When we want great seafood in a relaxed and super... More

My wife and I have passed by this restaurant several times and assumed it was primarily fried fish. Someone told us to try the food and it was fantastic. Yes they have a lot of fried dishes, but the grilled fish tacos were outstanding. We'll definitely be back and will bring friends!!

Wow! My Wife and I visited the Fish for the first time the other day with my Sister who is a regular. The food was Amazing! Truly! I had the 4 shrimp and 2 fish basket and it was both plentiful and delicious. The hush puppies "Rock" and the beer is Ice Cold! We can't wait until we return!

The food is greasy and greasy food makes me feel gross. I don't like fried food so I'm not impressed.

Over the years we have been a regular customer of this restaurant at least one a month and sometimes more. Lately both the food and the service has gone to pot! None of the staff can barely speak English and they act as if they are doing you a favor having to wait on you!

I met with friends for lunch. Pleasing atmosphere, country feeling, at reasonable prices. Scan the over head menu, place your order and receive an electronic order ready device. It's a serve yourself beverage bar, and your choice of table location. When your order is ready, you go and retrieve it. Then sit back and enjoy your fresh made to order... More
