We eat here about once every couple of months. The boiled platters are fabulous. Ask for "without final pepper" if you aren't ready for some serious heat. The fried choices are better than the average chain place, definitely. Never over cooked and fresh. I love...More

My husband grew up on the coast and did not want to enter this restaurant -- don't be persuaded by the outside. The inside is new, exceptionally clean, and perfectly decorated as a fish lovers/fisherman's paradise. The food was reasonable, fresh, very delicious, and great...More

Solid choice for good seafood. Fried foods and grilled specials are all good. Bacon wrapped jalapeno is a great starter and offers several good desert choices as well. Beer is available and has patio seating as well.

The outside is pretty non-descript and I drove right past it. The inside is a sort of 50's theme, but very cute. The restaurant is clean. You walk up and what is available is on a large board above the registers. The employees were very...More

Ate with the wife here last week after a visit to a doctor. We ordered the 3 filet platter with fries and hushpuppies and split it ($11.50 + tax and tip). Got a month's worth of fried food all in one meal, but it was...More

What's the hype ? I had a shrimp Po'Boy- sloppily made on burnt bread. Ordered new potatoes- they were served room temperature & I had to cut rotten spots off about 1/4 of them. Everyone's potatoes were served warm. Another in the party ordered 6...More

On a visit to Fort Worth on Good Friday, I planned to go to Pappadeau's but then came across The Flying Fish while researching other options. It was conveniently located near the area of the zoo and botanical gardens. At midafternoon, the business was steady...More

Fantastic fish tacos! Try the grilled tilapia - they are the best! We got fish tacos, my son and daughter-in-law got fried catfish dinners, which were also very good. And we got the breaded fried sliced jalapeños - they were great! A fun atmosphere, resembles...More

Two places, over the counter on a white board and and a pamphlet. I Have had catfish twice this week Catfish Plaantation in Waxahachie and JW'S Steakhouse in Carmine Tx. Both places put Flying Fish to shame.

I have no idea, but obviously fried foods do have a higher calorie count as opposed to grilled or baked. Unless you are on a strict diet, treat yourself this once.
