Flying Fish Restaurant Review: Small-town fish fry shacks found throughout the South inspire Flying Fish, which serves crispy, deep-fried catfish with a healthy dose of kitsch. Novelty Billy Bass singing fish trophies festoon the walls. (Donate yours and get a free catfish dinner.) Snapshots of customers displaying their best catches add a regional grace note. At the front counter, order classic fried catfish and hushpuppies or step it up a notch with grilled tilapia or snapper Veracruz style. 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. Basic Southern desserts wrap up the meal: Key lime pie, bread pudding, banana pudding or cobbler. Wednesday is the day for the all-you-can-eat catfish special.
