The food was pretty good but this place is totally overpriced
My friends like it but we have never enjoyed our food
Corn meal coated fried catfish & shrimp did not have much flavor. Maybe the grilled fish or jambalia would have been a better choice.
Overall, great food. Good place to stop or order online if you need your dose of some great sea food.
Fantastic seafood. Had the catfish, shrimp, clams, lobster stew and grits & gumbo. Everything was very fresh, tasted excellent. Great prices on all the food, especially the kids' meals. So good we had to come back for their jambalaya and Hush puppies. Both were good but the Hush puppies were a little over cooked.
Either you like fried or grilled, it's the same. My parents who came to visit last year said it was the best Catfish they had in their life and they are both were in their 80's. I will say though, the fried pickles are terrible. Other than that everything is delicious.
Why was my jumbo shrimp flattened paper thin? Little confused on that.. the batter had a weird taste and after taste . It's still lingering in my mouth. The catfish had no flavor? Either that or it was the weird tasting batter. Cole slaw was the worst I ever ate! I wont go there again. I'll drive 2 hrs to Cape fair and eat at flat creek restaurant. Totally worth it. We really need a good fish place around here!
The salmon tacos were so good that I wiggled and giggled like a fish out of water. The crawfish chowder gave me a severe case of "give-me-some-more-of-this-itis" (not a medically recognized condition, but still very real). I couldn't find the horseradish at first, but after I did, there weren't enough crackers in the building to eat it on. The catfish didn't taste like cats though, and that was confusing.
Great food. Good service relaxing atmosphere
I’m not a big fan of fried foods so I always order off the grilled section. The grilled salmon plate, grilled grouper plate and the grilled salmon salad are my favorites. They certainly know how to grill a nice filet of fish to perfection. Oysters on a half shell never disappoint either.
Excellent food, friendly service, great atmosphere.
I really wanted to like this place, but when I male better food at home, what is the point? Friendly staff and awesome ice is not enough to make up for such low quality and poor tasting food. The batter on the fried shrimp tasted like soap or detergent, it was also dry and has terrible texture. My wife went for the burger which she described as "the worst burger she has eaten in years...I wish I hadn't been so hungry because I wouldn't have eaten it." Do yourself a favor and skip this restaurant. Its seriously sad that Long John Silvers has better quality food than Flying Fish.
Good food and friendly staff..
This food was delicious! Grilled catfish with garlic butter was phenomenal! Also had fried okra, pickled green tomatoes, and fried pickles! I liked the casual atmosphere- perfect place to refuel after a long day of biking! They were busy, but the food didnt take long to come out after we ordered!
This place is always good to staff is friendly and Sergio is the man he takes care of his customers
Great Food, fun atmosphere & family friendly. I highly recommend the veggies, rice and beans with the rainbow trout. Traditional is an olive oil and lemon; which was perfect.
Fried catfish, oysters and gumbo we're some of the best I've had! The atmosphere was great and what you'd expect! Will come back next time we're in the area.
Great local joint... well worth the trip. Loved my grilled fish plate.
Absolutely great fried catfish.
Fried seafood is the shiny star here... and the hushpuppies aren't too bad. Good place to pig out and chill for a while.
Great food...great location!
Friendly staff and decent food.
Can't wait to go back!
I love this little hole in wall eatery!
Service was good my Salmon was tasty just dry.
I went for my birthday and I got 2lb of crawfish very good !
Great food and great prices. Go almost every weekend. Kids meals are amazing as well.
Good as always. Grilled/BBQ shrimp with beans & rice, good!
Recommended to us by our Airbnb hosts and we weren’t disappointed! My husband had the snappy grilled red snapper with some great grilled veggies and I had the grilled fish tacos. The restaurant is a neat place, but the fish tacos were so delicious! The slaw and sauce that they put on them is delicious! Also had some tasty fried okra! Prices were reasonable too and plenty of seating for a larger group.
Amazing BBQ shrimps and fries.
Has a wide variety of fish, good service
Excellent food! Would highly recommend
Great food everytime! The salmon is amazing and there are countless other seafood options to pick from.
Good fish.. .the service can be better.
Good place nice location if you live or work near Bentonville Square.
Fun atmosphere. Great food! There are healthy options as well if you’re looking for that kind of place. Of course they have fish and chips! But the grilled trout and veggies are great!
The catfish is alright but Catfish John's is much better.
This is the most disgusting "seafood I've ever had in my 39yrs of life. The food is bland, no seasoning at all..not even some light salt on the fries. The portions are laughable! It's kid size portions for adults. The prices are ridiculous YOU DO NOT GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR. It's like Red lobster prices for walmart frozen section seafood that's microwaved. The only reason ppl are giving this place higher than 1 star are probably drunk. Everyone was getting drunk when we were there. The atmosphere is slightly ok but the temperature felt like their AC broke or like all that money ppl are spending there is being pocketed instead of them using it to invest in an AC. We will NEVER be back! We will take our money to red lobster, at least if they do microwave their food it doesn't taste like it & you get what you pay for in some relaxing AC. What a joke.
Been going here for years! Never disappointed! 5*
Love the fish tacos and hula poppers, some of the other dishes seem over priced for what you get. Make sure to look at the daily specials and register for the grub club for a bit one get one free entree once a month.
The food was outstanding here! Especially the beans and rice!
Great atmosphere and good food. Fast service too!
Fried, grilled or boiled, you can get your fish and seafood the way you want. Been several times and always leave satisfied. Service is fast even during the busiest hours. Very casual.
A staple of the downtown Bentonville restaurant scene this family friendly venue has something for everyone. Fishing lore and local legends adorn the walls and the sounds of the blues fills the room. Great huspuppies and fish dishes but they also have a firm grip on southern Cajun favorites like jambalaya and gumbo. Insider tip: order the rainbow trout with steamed squash #arkansasinsider
Stopped in for a late dinner with our host while in Bentonville for the weekend. The food and margaritas were all GREAT!
This was our second visit and we will certainly be back. The food is amazing, the service is great and the prices are very reasonable. I had the jambalaya and loved it!
Wow, great idea to stop here on the way back home to Tulsa. Really cool setting and the menu was great. I was craving catfish and so that's what I received. It must be a good spot because I ran into so family members I havent seen in a while that was passing through on their way to Little Rock.
Oh my goodness!! Best tacos I’ve ever had!! I ate here for the first time, I had salmon tacos. They are so delicious and they give you a lot of food. Great prices, great portions and the best fish! I will definitely go to Flying Fish at other locations when I’m traveling. We need one of these in Chattanooga, TN.
Cajun food in Arkansas with Texas decor! It doesn't get much better!
Grits and Gumbo along with an order of fried catfish were excellent choices. We felt like native Bentonviller's when we walked in and saw the years of fishing records and stories that filled the walls. This is an excellent place to eat often or just stop by before or after visiting the Walmart Museum.
My wife ordered the grilled rainbow trout and thought it was excellent. It came with grilled vegetables and red beans and rice. I ordered fried catfish tacos. They were very good. We're glad to see it in Bentonville since we have eaten at the one in Little Rock.
Best atmosphere. Food is awesome
Amazing atmosphere along with the food. They're quick to rectify the situation if you have a food issue or allergy related. Wonderful management and employee system in place.
Wow!! Such a wonderful experience! Everything was cooked to perfection. Seasoned well. Quickly served. This was a first visit for us, and I noticed regulars opening a tab, getting beer or wine and sitting for a while before getting in line to order. Considering how fast the place fills up, that seems like a great idea. To start, we ordered oysters on the half shell (fresh from the gulf the day before) and mexican cocktail that was loaded with yummy shrimp and just enough spice! Then came jambalaya like no other. Saucy, shrimpy and oozing southern charm. And perfectly cooked catfish, melt in your mouth tender. we ordered anticipating leftovers, we left overstuffed. Now on my favorite list for NWA!
Can't beat the price, cold drinks and casual atmosphere. Foods ok.
Very casual atmosphere. Grilled salmon tacos were really good!
Food is great, usually. I have visited often & have hardly ever gotten food that was less than great. Love the atmosphere.
Excellent spot for fish & oysters in a relaxed family setting. Very affordable and well located in downtown Bentonville. It was my birthday and I had a real treat- 2 dozen oysters on the half shell!!!!
Try it, you won't be disappointed.
Im flying like fish!! This place impressed me. I cant believe how affordable it was and how fast. Great key lime pie and a good place to get your seafood fix on! Fyi... Dig that billy big mouth bass out of your garage and bring it here for adoption... Im not making this up...Just do it and see what happens.
Holy cow!! The best fish tacos I've ever had! I can't wait to go back. Although, the tea was super old tasting... gross
Definitely enjoyed my food. The rice and beans were delicious. I'm from the beach and the shrimp was not freshly caught even though it may have been freshly imported. Catfish was a little thin. I like mine thick. Overall the staff very polite, environment homey. Prices are excepted due it being seafood. I like it!
So far every item I've had is great. So far I've had the catfish, shrimp, salmon, and the grilled veggies. All was great.
Good food. Great location downtown Bentonville
Popular spot. Food is very good. Crawfish are delicious when in season.
One of my Bentonville fav's
Had several of my friends telling me I had to go here (one being from Lousiana). I ordered a combo platter with Catfish and shrimp and absolutely loved their seasoning and style! I will most definitely be going back to try more of their combo platters to enjoy everything they have to offer. Rated 4 stars due to it not being the absolutely best thing I've ever had for cajun style and that it wasn't "blow my mind" good.
Excellent food and a great atmosphere
Good atmosphere and good food
The staff were super nice. The atmosphere is really relaxed and casual. Cute decor. I like that this restauraunt is located right off the square. My son loved the boat that the kids'meal came in. The fish that I had gad very obviously been frozen, but the grilled vegetables were delicious!
Great fish tacos! Excellent service!
Always fresh and excellent seafood. Great fish tacos!
Food was okay but customer service, definitely lacking. Urged to hurry and order due to line, told to pick a dressing in more of a command tone, then when ordering dessert for friend-no eye contact and hand held out for my card while he talked to others.
Flying Fish in Bentonville Ar, is the premier Cajon and seafood restaurant in NWA
Best. Food. Ever!
Let me start off by saying this was a fantastic eatery! I had a fried oyster po' boy- my personal favorite when I make southern travels! It definitely wasn't the best po' boy I've had (you can't beat the big easy!) however, it was still delicious. I love the environment of the restaurant as well. It has a Cajun atmosphere, always a must in the south! The fries were also delicious! And I must not leave out the hush puppies! Only once have I had hush puppies better than these! Overall, I would say this is up in the top 5 for Cajun restaurants I've been to in the past! Highly recommend it if your in or near Bentonville!
Excellent, never disappointed, a local favorite.
Favorite restaurant in Bentonville. Consistent and always a great value! I tend to get the fish tacos (grilled) or the fried catfish. I've never had a bad meal here. I bring all my out of town guests here, and they always ask to return for another meal during their visit. You can't go wrong with Flying Fish!
I really liked the onion rings and boiled shrimp. The corn was too spicy for me but I'm a wuss when it comes to that. My husband liked his catfish but said the batter could use a little more seasoning. He loved the fried shrimp though. There's more I want to try so I definitely will go back.
Flying fish is a classic staple restaurant on the Bentonville Square. You can find amazing raw oysters, fresh catfish and some big shrimp! I highly recommend this to anyone visiting Bentonville or residents that just want a good down home cookin'! Great staff and a very lively atmosphere!
It was good but not amazing. It needed more flavor and the veggies were over cooked. For the price I have had better.
Food was good, don't get me wrong, but there wasn't anything outstanding or spectacular about it. But we'll definitely return.
Great food, slightly high prices.
Great food - doesn’t seem like a chain Resturant.
Can't go wrong here if you're looking for a good meal in Bentonville. Plus this place has the character and fun that the upscale nearby restaurants lack.
Seafood was very good especially for a restaurant in a city far away from an ocean. Service was good and menu had quite a bit of variety.
i wasnt very good much better sea food places in the area
Super fun place to eat. The seafood is great! The staff are friendly. The atmosphere is lively. The kids meals will me in a little boat. The grown up meals are amazing. The bloody Mary looks like a buffet in a cup. Come on and get it! Five stars.
Ambiance is great. Very casual and personal...in that there are personal stories about people in the Community. I ordered ceviche. It's in the cocktail, or cold fish dishes, and it is not listed on the menu board, but it is listed on the menu in front of the register. I've had typical Mexican and Peruvian Ceviche, and this was...I guess a new Orleans version. It had just enough heat and lime zing, but it was sweet and tomato saucey. Very flavourful. Other Flying Fish dishes I have ordered in the past were good, but a bit on the bland side. The ceviche was very satisfying.
Quick service considering that it was a Friday. Had the shrimp tacos which comes with a side of beans and rice. Plentiful. Would come back.
Been awhile since I had been there. It was as good as always. The food was fresh and cooked just right my problem was deciding what to order. Got the grouper and it was done perfect. Nice clean place worth the trip.
The 4-star rating is because I've eaten there twice and my food was excellent both times.
Love the food, love the atmosphere, and friendly staff! Just wish there was more places to park.
Kinda pricey but better value than Blue fish market
Love the food here. The Snappy seasoning they use is perfectly spicy and complimentary to the fish. They grilled Zucchini and Squash that comes on the plate is incredible and the food is always fresh!
Food was to hot for me to eat I told the manager and she hooked me up with a delicious meal. I Love this place.
This is one of the best places in Bentonville to get some catfish for sure
This is a must when we visit the area. I have had Cajun food and this is as authentic as it gets. The jambalaya is spicy and delicious, the catfish(farm raised) is fresh, crispy and tender. My husband always gets the seafood gumbo which he loves. They have a large menu so you have many choices.
I recommend the shrimp and catfish combo basket. Was the best Ive had in years
Good food. Great prices!!!!
Great place for fish. The jalapeno poppers were awesome.
Great food! Nice place. Liked the catfish combos a lot
"Catch and Release into Real Hot Grease" is one of the best slogans I've ever heard from any restaurant, what a great description! Most things are fried and everything I tried was fantastic, cold beer, lots of fishing stories on the walls and of course lots of hot fried food.
Love the cute little place and their decorations: the photographs and fish decor. The food was quite good too but could use a little more seasoning. The potatoes and okra was yum. The almond rice with trout and grilled snapper was good but a little bland. The shrimp could've been smoked a little more.
I was thinking about a Po Boy and the fried catfish Po Boy was awesome. My wife initially wasn't interested in "cajun food" and the outside of the restaurant isn't all that appealing. But the menu choices were awesome and me all our expectations. This is a don't miss if you are in Bentonville and looking for good eats
This place is one of my favorite places to eat in Bentonville. I'm a seafood fan and I like the southern style and spices they use on their menu items. They have a great location with shops and markets right around the corner. The interior decorations are great too with a unique style that keeps to their theme. Has a family owned feel to it.
Amazing crab and jumbo shrimp!
Took our out of town guests to this restaurant because I knew I could count on some great southern food.
Where else can you adopt a Billy Bass and also get a great meal these days! Fun Cajun spot with quirky decor and great flavor. Can’t wait to go again!
One of my favorite restaurants. Big portions and fair prices. My favorite is the jambalaya.
Fresh sea food, fast service and price is reasonable. Crispy calamari is good. Will visit again!
Always good service; clean space and good food wuith cold beer!
A bit on the pricy side, but worth it. The portions are large and the food is always hot ( not sitting under a warmer). I'm told their burgers are awesome too, but I can't bring myself to eat a burger when I'm at a seafood joint.
Although the wall decor can overwhelm the faint hearted, try the fish tacos and a side of hush puppies.
Awesome place to eat. Real Cajun taste. But... I think a main dish is fulfilling enough. I packed my starter to bring home. My son loves the animal crackers comes with the kid's boat meal.
Food is good, not great. Atmosphere is really fun. I got the fried oyster poor boy sandwich. It was filling as it cane with fries and 2 small hush puppies. The fried jalapeños were amazing.
Fun atmosphere and location. The food is really good too.
Great place with good seafood
Great grilled Salmon tacos!
Let's be honest here. This is not a 5 star place. It is however a good solid four star seafood joint with sort of cajun like food. It's quirky and interesting and I'd definitely return. Service quality is mixed. Sometimes the guy at the counter doesn't even seem to be paying attention to you when you are ordering.
The gumbo was not worth 8 dollars. It was small and the shrimp weren't cleaned out. In fact, the shrimp were gritty. I have had 10 dollar gumbo of similar size in restaurants where the average dinner price was 20 dollars.
Still my favorite place to eat seafood and cajun food! Its not to pricey for all the food you get. And it is the cheapest place for oysters on the half shell on sundays. I highly suggest you give it a try!!
So Consistent and so good. You'll always have the same experience at Flying Fish and that says a lot about good restaurant quality.
Great hush puppies, catfish and more. More than just fried catfish.
Great food and atmosphere!
The fish could not fly. Do not be deceived.
This place is okay. The atmosphere is very homely and gives you a feeling that this place is a long time staple in the city. But honestly, the food isn't strongly seasoned and I wasn't thrilled about the price either ($14 for two small pieces of catfish and 4 pieces of shrimp). I'd definitely say this place is worth experiencing, but it's a "one and done" visit for me.
Delicious, Iowa family of 12 ate . Lots to pick from. Come to eat in Bentonville Arkansas.
I just love their mexcian shrimp cocktail. Sooo hot but O so good
The food was absolutely horrendous! I had frog legs, my husband had the chicken and catfish basket. The 1st bite tasted rotten. Rancid grease, mildew taste. I took mine up and they gave me a new meal of rainbow trout. The fish in this place taste old, like algae. My husband just put his aside and never ate. We were both up with stomach aches all night. We will never eat there again.
A great place to eat and have a good time with friends and family. Salas are tasty and also baskets and tacos
Gotta love a restaurant with 5 kinds of hot sauce, an entire roll of paper towels & a basket of saltines on every table! And the food is good too ;)
Food is typical southern gulf coast which is nice to find here in Arkansas. We had the Oryster Po-Boy, and grilled Tilapia and was good. This is a very informal restaurant you go for the food. The prices are okay for what you get. We we're fortunate to find parking but that could present a problem if you are going on weekends or other busy times.
Huge variety of seafood, all good. Casual atmosphere
I love the fish here! It is always hot and fresh.
Love this place! Wonderful food!
Great place to eat out at
Very tasty. Fast service. Will definitely go back sometime
To expensive for me , but loved the fish.
Great place to grab some oysters on the half shell had the po-boy today and grilled veggies they were both great and the oyster were fresh shocked and delicious
By far the best Catfish I've ever tried. Fries are standard but every main course and side is amazing.
We were walking around downtown and asked a police officer where to eat. He recommended Flying Fish and I'm so glad we tried it. The bbq grilled shrimp were great! Fun atmosphere and reasonable prices.
Unique atmosphere, ok food
Ordered the grilled shrimp salad.Delicious! Great presentation! Served on a bed of green leaf lettuce with toasted almonds, just ripe avocado, tomatoes, cucumber, cranberries, and of course Cajun seasoned plump grilled shrimp. Awesome huge serving, enough for two to share. Accompanied by tasty hush puppies!
Sucked! Sorry but, I'm from Louisiana and this place disappointed on every angle
Catfish and shrimp were good as well as the hamburgers
Found a real small pearl (less than size of beebee) in a fried oyster.
Really delicious food. Come here if you are wanting a classic mom & pop vibe
Hot and fresh. The service is fast. It is a bit pricey but well worth the amount you pay.
This is a hidden gem in Bentonville square! The food is always delicious service is fast and friendly. Oysters on the half shell or fried oysters are perfect and the catfish is to good to pass up. This little diner needs to on your must try list when your in the area or passing through. I think its the best seafood place in NWA!
Always wonder fish options that are all delicious. Key lime pie also tops dinner off well. Yum!
We visited a few times, so far, with full intent to make this restaurant a regular event. First visit we checked out a pretty great cup of gumbo. Next visit was for the fried oysters, also above the bar. Third visit: Catfish dinner and we joined the Club for a generous monthly discount emailed to us. Now we're looking forward to the next visit, ready to check out yet more of the many interesting menu items, confident that we'll find that adventure just as gratifying.
My mouth is all kinds of happy! What a fun atmosphere. The menu was a lot to take in at once, however, after taking time to review it, there are a lot of great options! I chose the red snapper dinner and it was unforgettable.
Hushpuppies were great. What I didn't like is there shrimp is not deveined and the examples of the jumbo shrimp in the display are twice as big as what they actually serve. The prices for the food is because of location, not quality.
Came from out of town. This was amazing. Best seafood I've had outside restaurants walking distance from the ocean. Highly recommend for delicious seafood
Delicious catfish and charro beans
Perfectly prepared foods and yummy bread pudding! $$ Fast service. My favorite place in Bentonville.
Their grilled fish was very tasty and fried shrimp was good, but the hush puppies were fried too hard.
