Visiting from Northern NJ our friends from the area were excited to take us here. With their rave reviews I was really hoping to get more out of the experience. First, we had a horrible time finding parking. We were seated outdoors at a table that was a bit rickety with no sun light because the two tables this place had were pushed into a far corner and when asked if we could move them over towards the sunlight the waitress would not allow us to do so. Waitress wasn't the friendliest and the place wasn't all that busy for 6:00 P.M. on a weekend. Regardless, we ordered up a total of 2 apps and 2 basic rolls and 2 specialty rolls with no alcohol included. Our total bill was about $150.00 which is ridiculous being that we come from one of the most expensive regions in the nation. You could have a ton of sushi for that price in NYC. Def not a place we will revisit when we are visiting with friends again.

Flying Fish is the best sushi by far, not even close. Don't go anywhere else at the beach. We are major foodies from DC and NYC and Flying Fish is better than anything in DC and rivals the best in NYC. Friendly service and we are made to feel like family. Fish is super fresh. Presentation is beautiful and very creative. This is our "go to" place whenever we come to the beach. Make a reservation in advance. Not expensive. Come hungry and leave full and happy.

Went last night for the first time...and it was AHHHMAZING!!!! Shared a bottle of wine with my friend, split some apps and we each ordered 3 rolls. I got Bangkok Dynamite, Bermuda & Mobster Lobster. The rolls were so fresh and so flavorful!!! The atmosphere was quaint and cozy. The service was knowledgeable & professional. Very much enjoyed my first experience and will definitely be back!!!!

We had dinner here recently on a weekday night when there was hardly anyone in town so we didn't make a reservation. Mistake. When we arrive around 7:00 every table was booked! Who would have guessed? But it was no problem since we grabbed a couple of seats at the sushi bar. Behind the bar were two very busy but friendly chefs who chatted with us as they cut, sliced and prepared everyone's meals. Their menu selection was quite varied and definitely interesting but in this somewhat secluded place we weren't expecting anything special. That was our second surprise of the night. We had three rolls, recommended by the chefs, each one delicious and increasingly complex in texture and flavor. We are long time sushi eaters and had been to Japan just six months ago. While there we had sushi in one of the best restaurants in the Tokyo fish market - and our meal tonight compared very favorably. Will definitely return to this place.
