Me & my fiancé went for the first time today.. of course it was busy but the restaurant was fast paced once we placed our order and got seated we had our food in 10 mins. Loved it! I would say portion sizes are a bit smaller then expected for there prices but the food was wonderful!

Food was excellent. Service was top notch. Really enjoyed it but not pet friendly

Always great food and service. The snappy version is hot but ih so good!

First of all, the guy taking your order does not speak a word of Engljsh, so every customer is walking back up to the line trying to find the drinks, etc. Second, the fried catfish is so thin that the only thing you can taste is the cornmeal. Lasr, they don't even have onion for the fish. This is by far the WORST restaurant I've been to in years! Save your money and go to McDonald's and get a Filet of fish. You'll be happier. I wish I could give them 0 stars.


The restaurant’s walls are lined with donated or “adopted” Billy Bass motion activated fish. Need I say more. The food was good, service was quick. The fish tacos were among the best I’ve tasted. Portions are large fir the price

Loved this restaurant! The grilled grouper was good but the red beans and rice were out of this world! Highly recommend the margaritas on the rocks! Fun atmosphere!


On a whim, we stopped in Little Rock overnight. After some sightseeing, we found Flying Fish. BEST FRIED SEAFOOD!!! We will DEFINITELY be back through again!

We truly enjoyed this dining experience. It left a lasting impression on us with its classic southern charm. We ordered the whole red snapper. It comes with a veggie and rice. The fish is covered with their Vera Cruz sauce with seared bell peppers and onions. It was nice being robust in flavor but not spicy. Their rice is fresh and moist. It was complimented with yellow and green squash. This meal was big enough for my wife and I to split. The whole fried fish is something I always order when I can find it. Being the use a red snapper was a bonus. If you are a fan of the whole fish experience, I recommend this.

I ordered 4pc fish fillet basket, fried oyster basket, and fish tacos .. It was absolutely delicious I have NOT one complaint! Everything was fresh and tasty! Oh I eat my food with my eyes first lol so the presentation was just as it tasted.. We got it to go I was shocked to have all condiments needed for our food WITHOUT asking.. we'll be back!!


I ordered through Grubhub and the food was great!!!!! There was lots of food and all the condiments. I’min Little Rock another week and I’ll definitely be ordering from them again!!

Fun place to eat and people watch! Go when the weather is good and the front windows are open. You will have to wait in line to order, but you can have a beverage while you wait. Good choice of beers, and you can create a mix and match bucket. The catfish is consistently good, and you can't go wrong with a po' boy. There are a few healthy choices, but this is a fried food paradise!

The food is pretty good and at an ok price. The walk up counter service is dismal at best. The beer selection is above average. My food order came with a plastic wrapped spork that I could only use to scoop up the above average rice and beans. I had the Grilled Red Snapper filets.. the tast was good but it was dry and my spork wouldn't keep me from having to eat it with my hands. The shrimp stuffed jalapeño poppers wrapped in bacon were by far the highlight. My wife's Jambalaya was pretty good. Overall an underwhelmed experience. I'm not sure I'll be back.

Hands down the best grilled catfish I’ve ever had. “Make it Snappy!” Lord then add the tartar sauce and it’s heaven! Great environment sharing lots of history, long line but very quick and super friendly staff!

Grilled salmon, grilled zuchinni, squash and corn was perfectly prepared. Ordering and picking up was extremely easy. We came here all the way from South Texas to help with power restoration after Easter storms. We love to support small businesses! This was a great choice in Little Rock!

LOVED the food here. The fried catfish was absolutely delicious as were the hush puppies. Also had the fried okra, and naturally some sweet tea which I get any time I'm in the south! It definitely took a LONG time as the line was way out the door but that just shows how popular and good this place is. It was absolutely worth the wait. This spot was a recommendation from a Little Rock native when I was planning a trip here, and she was absolutely on the mark.
