The Flying Fish is a great find in downtown Bentonville. We ate on a Wednesday evening and had no problem ordering and getting seating. The fried catfish is the big winner at Flying Fish.

My father and I recently caught dinner at Flying Fish on a Wednesday night. The restaurant wasn't too busy, a nice shift from the times I have been in during lunch or weekend hours. While I have opted for grilled fish options in the past, we both figured we would try the special for the night- all you can eat... More

Our catch of the day was Bentonville's Flying Fish. Seafood lovers who find Cajun music, fish shack decor, and friendly staff great bait will love this place. Casual, with order window and pick up your own order adds to fun. And, oh, the food...my recommendation is the lobster stew accompanied by basket of hushpuppies. We drove around a bit to... More

Fast, hot, well-prepared fish tacos beat out the octapus entree @ the Pressroom. Portions are plentiful. My side went untouched because there was already ample slaw on the tacos.

Their fish has a really strong fishy taste, noticed that the pieces had that dark streak on the filets, will not eat the fish here for sure. Crawfish looked and tasted really good, ordered by somoeone else at the table, Shrimp was good.

This is a local establishment for Bentonville. The food is "ok" but nothing special. It is a little bit pricey considering the portions.

Gumbo is spicy. Fried catfish and shrimp some of the best I've had. Counter service on a Sunday evening was quick but was told that waits can be long on busy days.
