My wife had the fish tacos, which she orders at just about every time they're on a menu and she didn't like them, my son had the snapper vera cruz and liked it, but he didn't care for the Mexican cocktail, I had the gumbo which I thought was very good. The jalapeno appetizers were way overcooked to the point... More

Best Salmon Tacos in town. Cold beer. Casual place to join family or friends. Friendly staff. Don't see it on the Menu don't hesitate to ask if they can fix it for you. Great experience!

I love the taste of the food here, but the portions are small and if you want to add to your basket, they upcharge you too much.

Food is always good here and the seafood fresh. Bring your UTA id and u can get a discount (or u can get a frequent eater card. I have eaten here too many times to remember - I cannot remember anything I have eaten that was poor.

The Flying Fish Arlington is downtown and close to UTA. It can get busy but they all do. We had a short wait to order and the food came shortly. It was hot and fresh and there were no mistakes. I like this location better than the Ft Worth one. We were with family and allof us had an excellent... More

If you want seafood and don't want to pay too much for it, this is the place. I really like the catfish, but they have shrimp and other types of fish as well! They even have desserts!

Ate here after a long absence, and it's even better. I'm not partial to gulf oysters but got a half dozen and they were fresh and briny. The Mexican shrimp cocktail is very good and huge; I wish they deveined the shrimp in it. They do the regular. Wife likes the catfish. The fried shrimp are butterflied so very crispy... More
