This casual cafeteria style place owned by the folks who own Railhead across the street is a cross between Long JohnSilvers and Eddie V's. It's usually crowded which is a plus for fresh seafood lovers. And they are one of the few places with frog...More

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

We eat here about once every couple of months. The boiled platters are fabulous. Ask for "without final pepper" if you aren't ready for some serious heat. The fried choices are better than the average chain place, definitely. Never over cooked and fresh. I love...More

Solid choice for good seafood. Fried foods and grilled specials are all good. Bacon wrapped jalapeno is a great starter and offers several good desert choices as well. Beer is available and has patio seating as well.

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.

I have no idea, but obviously fried foods do have a higher calorie count as opposed to grilled or baked. Unless you are on a strict diet, treat yourself this once.
