“Loved it!”
Reviewed February 23, 2013

Just found out this was the same as the Flying FIsh we ate at and loved in Little Rock! Now we have we one closer to home ... the fried catfish was excellent ... fried shrimp so delicious! Yummy tartar sauce ... so much more to try on the huge menu - all looks so good - we will be back soon! But I bet we order the fried catfish and shrimp again on our next visit! How coud you not ...

Also, take note that the free outdoor concerts in downtown Arlington at the Levitt Pavillion ... starting May 25th ... they have multiple free concerts each week all summer long -check the website for a schedule. Bring your lawn chair and enjoy the music ...

“All seafood but well prepared and inexpensive.”
Reviewed January 27, 2013

Not fancy - good for lunch or informal dinner. Sit at simple tables, order at the counter and pick up when it comes. Food is good and they give you enough to eat so you won't leave full..

“The guys love their fish”
Reviewed January 2, 2013

When you step into the restaurant you can see the team loves everything related to fishing. And then you discover they know how to prepare a fish too.

We have tried grilled trout and I can highly recommend it. I took it spicy, my wife got plain - both were delicious. Accompanied by grilled vegs and rice, it was the best fish I had in years.

“Got Fish?”
Reviewed January 1, 2013 via mobile

Wow...just paid my first visit here. Ordered the fried shrimp and catfish combo. Can only say it was excellent. This is definitely a place I would come back to! Warning however, the portions are large. So order large only if you're hungry! Highly recommend.

“Great fish tacos”
Reviewed November 14, 2012

Great fish dishes at great prices. The fish tacos were some of the best I have ever tried: different than the typical variety because these were in hard taco shells and had an amazing cream sauce. The red beans and rice side was fine. You order at the counter and then pickup when ready with self-serve drinks (except bottled beer). Servers basically just keep things clean. Nice patio seating too. Kids would be fine. Some chicken options but they focus on fish with a low-country/coastal feel. I will eat here again.
