The Flying Fish specialized in fried catfish baskets, which are pretty darn good, but they also serve a variety of other seafood (If you call catfish raised in freshwater ponds seafood, which I don't). The place is pretty fast, seating is at tables and benches...More

In Little Rock recently I discovered the Flying Fish near my hotel Courtyard Marriott. It was always hopping but the line moves fast, you order your food and drink, and collect it from the counter. The menu is varied with a tired punchline, "We catch...More

All their fish baskets are delicious. If I'm hungry and and want a full and balanced, healthy, meal, I get the fried catfish taco dinner. They have all you can drink soft drinks and a good selection of bottled beer. Get there early since they...More

This is just great food. We will be making a trip again to just eat here. Had the shrimp and catfish basket above and beyond the best. The calamari appetizer was fabulous!! Don't pass this little gem up. You will be missing out!!

Was expecting better. We had calamari and fried pickles, fish and shrimp. Nothing to write home about. I wanted the fish tacos but it came on corn tortillas and I wanted flour. They stated they could not do that but I could get shrimp tacos...More

Everybody else seems to love this noisy, cheerful seafood eatery, which specializes in boiled shrimp, fried catfish, grouper, and other denizens of the deep. You line up to place your order and then find a table in rooms decorated with every sort of fish photo,...More

Never saw so much variety and such good fish in one location. You order at the counter but then there are perfectly comfortable picnic tables at which to eat. So obviously nothing formal about this place but you get your food quickly, it’s delicious, and...More

I feel sure you could call in and order, then pick it up at the counter but, I do not think delivery is an option.

If you have a car or some transportation, you might also want to look into Cajuns Warf. 2400 Cantrell, it is just a few minutes from downtown, on the river, live music, etc. Enjoy your trip, sounds like fun.
