We arrived at 3pm on VDAY, the sign said open, the internet said open. As soon as we unloaded everyone, they turned us away saying they are not serving anyone at that time that they were preparing for their VDAY special. Despite the sign being on that said OPEN, she did offer to scrap together some lunch leftovers.....

Dear Kind Sir-- I sincerely aplolgize for you not being able to have lunch with us on VDAY. We had extremely busy lunch due to the fact that VDAY also fell on Mardi Gras Wknd. We always close for one hour before big nights like VDAY and NYE. It takes alot to prep for these kind of events and we... More

Ate here for the second time in a year. Loved it even more than the first. Great entree selection. We were a party of four adults who all chose something different, and we all raved. Service was excellent. And I LOVE that they take reservations- especially in the summer when everything gets packed!

I thought the service was great. The food was ok. I expected better. For what you got I thought it was quite pricy. The atmosphere is bad also. Dated interior in a small shopping center. I don't think I will return.

Doesn't look like much from the outside, but inside is where it's at! The decor and ambience are just right -- not too stuffy. I had the Big Fish Sandwich (seared Tuna -- very fresh!) and the husband had the B.I.G. Burger with all the trimmings. A very tasty and satisfying meal! For dessert, we opted for the Bread Pudding.... More

Today I had the simple salad with shrimp. The salad was small. Five medium shrimp were an added $7. Total meal was $13. Given the small portions it was overpriced. Too bad...the serviceable element and the food, such as it was, was good. If you decide to try it anywAy do not be put off by the strip center. The... More

We got there early and they were already ready very crowded. Fortunately a bar table for two was available and we were happy. Our waitress was great and the whole staff accommodating. My husband had the grouper grilled with the potatoes and spinach. I opted for the pasta puttanesca and order the side salad with the balsamic vinegarette... and I... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our evening at Big Fish Restaurant. The service/hospitality was wonderful and the food was fabulous. We started with the Fire Cracker Shrimp and we knew immediately it was going to be a great dining experience. My wife ordered the Big Stir Fry with Blackened Grouper and it was wonderful. I went with the Holy Shrimp! and again,... More

The restaurant is larger than it looks from the outside and its the off season so seating was not a problem. We stopped in for dinner while on a weekend Anniversary trip to the gulf and we both ordered seafood dishes. Our food arrived promptly and was very good. Our waiter, Tommy did a great job, and we appreciate him... More
