Great night and great food ! A slice of America dinner is easy, relaxed and delicious. The broiled catfish melted in my mouth and my spouses fried oysters were super.

One of those treasured hole in the wall places that the locals turn you onto. Fish and seafood is the key to the menu and done to perfection. Definitely a place that is the opposite of pretentious...the napkins are on a roll, silverware is plastic and condiments are in paper cups. But the food is delicious. Check out the Billy... More

I have been eating here for a long time,and every visit the food is perfect. The raw oysters are always fresh,and the fried catfish is always delicious. Don't leave here without an order of their hush puppies.

This is the goto place for fish in little rock, while you cannot get some of the more exotic fishes here, what you can get is cooked well and priced appropriately. I have never regretted going to the flying fish.

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.
