Flying Fish Restaurant Review: Flying Fish’s décor is inspired by the South’s ubiquitous rural fish-fry shacks, but it’s conveniently located in the heart of downtown Memphis, just a block away from the famous Peabody Hotel. At the front counter, place your order for classic fried catfish (USA farm-raised) and hushpuppies, or step it up a notch with grilled tilapia or snapper Veracruz style. Classic sides include pickled green tomatoes, beer-battered onion rings and grilled squash. Wine and beer are sold in price categories of “good” or “better,” so don’t expect the finest vino or suds. Wrap up the meal with a classic Southern dessert: Key lime pie, bread pudding, banana pudding or cobbler. A meal deal, the all-you-can-eat catfish special for $14.99 is the Wednesday special.
