If you’re in Little Rock hoping to eat some of the great catfish, gumbo, shrimp, and other sorts of seafood dishes that the southern states of the United States are famous for, head to the Flying Fish. Although its technically a chain (you can visit other Flying Fish restaurants in Texas and Tennessee), it certainly doesn’t feel like one. The restaurant has quirky decorations and a unique feel. What’s more, its affordable delicious food and selection of beer and wine make it a great choice. With its fun, no-frills, casual atmosphere and self-serve dining, The Flying Fish may not be the fanciest dining establishment in Little Rock, but is definitely an experience and is great for families. The Fish is usually crowded with hungry tourists and diners, all of whom sit together at the restaurant’s large, cozy tables. Its decorations (think: a large collection of animatronic singing Billy Bass props) and bustling atmosphere certainly give it character.
The Fish offers a wide selection of seafood. Hungry diners can enjoy fresh catfish, oysters, shrimp, grilled fish, crab legs, mudbugs (crawfish), trout, salmon, and tilapia. If seafood really isn’t your thing, don’t worry – The Flying Fish also has a number of non-fishy dishes, including burgers, salads, and chicken tenders. Try a crawfish or catfish po’boy or the Snapper Veracruz (fried whole red snapper topped with Veracruz sauce and served with rice and grilled vegetables). The Fish also offers a number of steamed and grilled options as well.
The Fish is conveniently located downtown on 511 President Clinton Ave and is a great place for a quick lunch or rambunctious dinner with the family. The restaurant is open 7 days a week for lunch and dinner.
