Inspired by the dockside fish markets on the West Coast, Flying Fish Public Market and Grill is famous for the fresh catch that goes airborne as workers toss them from the glass-encased cooler to the kitchen. Guests are welcome to get into the act by picking out their fish and pitching it to the awaiting arms of a chef ready to prepare it any way you want it. Where else can you throw your dinner?
Naturally, Flying Fish is all about seafood. From daily fresh catch specials to raw-bar selections live up to their motto, “If It Swims, We’ll Catch It!” That holds especially true for some of the Flying Fish’s feasts, like the Lowcountry Boil filled with shrimp and smoked sausage, or the Flying Fish Specialty with Alaskan Snow Crab, Littleneck clams, mussels and more. Lunch features lighter fare, such as soups, salads, sandwiches and their famous Fish Tacos. The raw bar offers sushi, oysters, scallops and soft-shell crab, and the Honey Apple Barbecue Chicken and Ribs are great alternatives for those not in the mood for seafood. Be sure to order the Gouda Smashed Potatoes and corn on the cob as tasty side items.
Located at the Barefoot Landing shopping, dining and entertainment complex, the Flying Fish is a relaxing place to unwind from a long day of shopping or a great place to fuel up before a night out at the theaters. The fish counter and aquarium are great distractions for the kids and the outdoor patio deck overlooking the Intracoastal Waterway provides a laidback setting for watching sunset while feasting on fresh seafood.
