This restaurant looks divey. They have worked on that look. Don't let it scare you away. It was excellently prepared fried catfish and jumbo butterflies shrimp. Preparations were in a light cornflour and cornmeal coating that was crisp, thin and accentuated the seafood rather than covering it up. Outstanding experience.

If you like FRIED everything, eat here! Wife said her fried catfish was good, my fried shrimp was ok. My crawfish soup was meh. Good selection of COLD, bottled beer. No waiter service, walk up & order & pay & go fetch your food.

Fresh fish in a very informal setting. Order you food, pick it up and sit down at wooden tables. Great lunch place. The catfish was excellent and a good variety of hard apple cider (if you're into that). Good for lunch.

Sad to learn this place was a chain but who cares with such a fun atmosphere! Came in for dinner and ordered the tilapia, while my boyfriend ordered the salmon, we both made it snappy and thank goodness we did! Perfect amount of seasoning to make this meal kick off. We also ordered the friend okra and were very happy!

No complaints at all. The fried fish is the flag ship with plenty of other items to select from. Oysters are always pleasant. Do t come here for the beer selection.

This is a Little Rock treasure. Great place to get quality seafood. Not too expensive for a seafood restaurant. May have to jostle a bit to get a place to sit but be patient. A table will open up before you know it.

I've had better fried food. Disappointing. Fried Oysters were overcooked. Calamari was the best part of the meal.

We went down to Little Rock, Ark. to visit the Big Dam Bridge. We also found a great spot for lunch. The atmosphere is open, but has three large rooms. One when you enter, then you go through a doorway into another area to order. Menu up on the wall. I ask one of the guys behind the counter what... More

I'm not a big fish person, very picky about my fish. I had shrimp & fish to be safe & both were wonderful! So happy we went there.
