The heated Golden Local debate over the Best Fish Restaurant in DFW has come to an end in one of the closest battles to date.

Flying Fish came out on top with 1593 votes to Fish City Grill's 1590 votes online.

Around Town correspondent Annie Potasznik presented the Golden Local trophy to Flying Fish at Preston Center location at Preston and Northwest Hwy in Dallas.

Ken Vaughan, director of operations, thanked Flying Fish's loyal customers.

"Thank you for voting and thank you for the support, obviously we couldn't do it without you, thank you for the business, come see us anytime you want, we're ready for you," said Vaughan.

315 people who voted for Flying Fish left comments on the Golden Local.

Born out of a love for Texas fish and places like Caddo Lake, Flying Fish is considered a "fast casual" dining experience.

Customers not only dine on fresh fish, they can also brag about their own catch of the day. The "Liar's Wall" encourages customers to post a picture of the fish they've caught as well as fib about the size.

Donating a Billy Bass to the Billy Bass Adoption Wall will get you a free basket of catfish.

Congratulations to Flying Fish!
