My hubby and I went there for dinner. I ordered shrimp, fried oysters, crawfish chowder, fried okra and grilled zucchini and squash. Hubby had the fried catfish and oysters. Everything was Delilah and yummy for your tummy. I would have rated a 5 but the prices are high but his veto say worth it. Very good taste, not greasy at... More

Excellent food and the prices are good too! Give yourself enough time because it gets crowded. When arrived the line was out the door, so i just ordered to go and took it to my hotel room. The atmosphere is loud and fun.

Great place for fried catfish and fries. A hush puppy is always included. It might look full, but we never have trouble finding a table.

Absolutely the BEST fried shrimp and catfish I have ever had. Panko like batter, PERFECTLY fried. Super crispy and very tasty! Fresh horseradish at the table. Order at the counter and take a buzzer they give you. Very fast. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!!

There is no atmosphere but it is family oriented. The food was very good and the new margarita's had a surprising kick to them.

I've returned twice for the fish tacos! This place is efficient. Order at the counter, take a buzzer and a short wait for fresh food in a market-like atmosphere. My friend gets the shrimp boil with extra heat. Delicious!

We went recommended and got positively surprised about the food and the decoration. Walls are full of stuffed fishes provided by fishers from any part, providing a really special atmosphere. Apart for on the decoration we have some barbecue and hot boiled shrimps. Shrimps were medium to small size but with a lot of flavor, and spiced as should be... More

Great place for a quick lunch. Great seafood. Fast service, great prices. Healthy options. Anything grilled you can make it SNAPPY, which means spicy. It's great.

Flying Fish is one of the great places in Little Rock to get great catfish, shrimp and crawfish during season. The food is always fresh and hot like good catfish should be. Expect a long line at lunch and during some evenings. If you want your catfish a little spicey, "make it snappy!"

Thank Lyonhart1
