First time going here! I will be going back.. I had the jambalaya. It was tasty with a kick. We had the tilapia veracruz that was awesome.

We wore masks inside, paid for our dine-in lunch, then took a booth in limited seating dining room. The pager alerted, I picked up our tray. Fried butterfly shrimp, and I got the $12.95 Shrimp Tacos ( cajun shrimp tacos! )Decent enough meal, though shrimp a bit rubbery. 3rd time here, the fry batter still seems industrial.The place was clean, organized, and far less diners than before COVID era.So I ordered up Veggie Plates with options of Green Beans, grilled yellow squash & zucchinis, and cold slaw. All good! The zucchini were better than the squash which had dried out a bit before frying. ( squash is tricky, looks nice for bright color, but is quick to spoil )Zesty butter-garlic-lemon-pepper on the big slices of grilled zucchini & squash. Cold slaw was decent, green beans also.

We went to Flying Fish and it was not good. The portions (with Shrimp) are smaller and the prices are outrageous. The shrimp is a lot of battered so it looks like bigger shrimp, but it is a bait and switch... we will NOT be back...

Awesome place to eat seafood. I love thier shrimp & catfish. You know it's not that frozen stuff you get at other places.Everything we've ever eaten here is absolutely great. I give this place a ?


Really good and fresh fish. Had the fish tacos, and they were loaded! Tasted great. Wife had the salmon and it tasted awesome as well, and was a good size piece. Really liked the atmosphere and the blues music.

Great food at great prices. Their catfish platters are really good, as well as their Po'Boys. During the health crisis they had a very nice set up in the parking lot for take out orders. Went to pick up dinner today, and they arranged their seating arrangements to comply with proper distancing. I've enjoyed eating here over the years, and am glad that they have been able to adapt and continue to serve the community.

I'm from Houston, so I know what good fish and creole tastes like. I was visiting family in Dallas, and we decided to give this place a try. I wouldn't say the crawfish was the best I've ever had, but the catfish was really good. The reason I'm giving it 4 stars was really the Gumbo. It was excellent! Plenty of shrimp, just spicy enough. Very tasty. We will definitely be back!

Tonight I got the grilled tilapia Veracruz, and it was a real treat. The grilled squash and zucchini were, as always, the best on the planet, and the staff really took good care of me! If you haven't tried Flying Fish, you should!

Ordered 4lbs of crawfish and when I got home I noticed the crawfish, potatoes, and corn were not seasoned. They boiled the crawfish without any seasoning. The crawfish were not purged and some of them had mud still on them. I have never ordered crawfish that came without any seasoning. I am not sure if that is how they come? I was never asked about putting any seasoning on them so I assumed like every other place they would have seasoning?

The atmosphere was great, with a little blues twist. The food was wonderful. Staff was knowledgeable and on point. Definitely going back for all you can eat catfish Wednesdays!!

Food has always been great, but today my Salmon was exquisite, moist and very tasty. Wow. Who ever cooked today at 12, you're Awesome. The most delicious food ever.

I have been to this restaurant several times and never once have I been disappointed. The restaurant has a wonderful atmosphere and the menu is very diverse and the food is not too greasy, unlike many other seafood restaurants. One thing I remember was the Big Mouth Billy Bass adoption center. It's a big wall covered top to bottom with singing fish, it was hilarious.

Very good taste. Right consistency for fried catfish basket. Would recommend it to anyone looking for a good meal.
