Flaky catfish with superb hush puppies. French fries were nothing to write home about but they give you plenty to eat. Afterward, if you want dessert try the key lime pie. Great service and good food so you can't go wrong.

Unpretentious, friendly, and laid-back, Flying Fish has the food your Memphis grandmother might make for Sunday dinner with the family. Generous portions, nicely prepared. And there's that "adopt a Billy Bass" wall for you to get rid of the "joke" gift whose charm has long...More

If you bring in your old Billy Bass you will get a free meal. Everything is fried but good. Fun place to catch a snack.

We picked this out without knowing anything about it and had delicious meals. You order at the front and they brink you food. It has a diner feel - not restaurant. Prices were good. We both had delicious catfish.

We were excited to get to try this,and were super disappointed. The shrimp tasted undercooked, and so did the fish that we ordered. We ended up leaving half of the food and going somewhere else.
