All the ratings for this place were so good we had to check it out. The food is basic, good seafood and priced well. The atmosphere is fun and casual. It's a pay-at-the-counter service and then the buzzer pad tells you your food is ready....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.
