This is one of those places where you select your food from a chalkboard that lists close to a hundred items, you tell the cashier what you want, he gives you a buzzer, and when it goes off you go back to the counter and...More

I frequently bring international visitors here, or recommend that they come, through my position at Global Ties Arkansas. I only hear good things about the food and service; in fact, some visitors go back to eat there again the next evening! I personally usually order...More

The food at Flying Fish is very good. The bad news is everyone knows it. Parking is also a hassel in the River Market area. All in all it is worth the trip. A bonus is after you find a parking spot and eat this...More

Have had both the fried catfish and the grilled tilapia. Grilled tilapia with their grilled vegetables was outstanding but pricey. You can make it "snappy" -- spicy -- and is excellent. Worth the extra $.

I cannot wait until Crawfish season. We go every year and get a couple of pounds. No frills, you stand in line, place your order, grab it and a table.

We enjoyed this small restaurant. The catfish was very tasty, hot and served quickly. We also had qumbo and it was very tasty. The roux was dark and rich. They have a good sized menu and everything we saw looked well prepared.

The line is out the door as soon as it opens each day. The food tastes good and fills you up. And the atmosphere is exactly that— bustling, noisy and commercial. It’s worth the stop, but doesn’t live up to the hype. Even so, if...More

I feel sure you could call in and order, then pick it up at the counter but, I do not think delivery is an option.

If you have a car or some transportation, you might also want to look into Cajuns Warf. 2400 Cantrell, it is just a few minutes from downtown, on the river, live music, etc. Enjoy your trip, sounds like fun.
