From apps to dessert, the best dinner we had in OB. Very attentive service and nice atmosphere. The firecracker shrimp are amazing! The shrimp & grits were outstanding and my spouse enjoyed the catch of the day bronze style and the sushi. The kids meals are typical but have a few seafood options as well. My kids enjoyed the fish... More

By far one of the best places to eat in Orange Beach. The Sushi, rolls, fish are unbelievable. The dessert is also way to tasty. The restaurant is clean and the service is great. You won't be disappointed.

Our party of six celebrated an anniversary on a busy Saturday night. Our waiter Jason was extremely attentive, knowledeable and cordial. Entrees were generous, fresh and tasty. The grilled fresh catch is a must have! Big Fish is now our top choice in the OB area and we'll be back often.

Can't say enough about this place, which will become one of our OB favorites. Had the two toddlers with us, which can make any meal a challenge, but the staff was great and the kids spent so much time devouring their food they barely made a peep. We had two sushi rolls which were both creative and well done. Also... More

Shortly after sitting down, the owner came to our table to introduce himself, congratulated me on my upcoming marriage, and let us know that if we needed anything to let him know. Well, we were sitting outside and it began... More

We ate at the Big Fish today for lunch on our way out of town. The food was excellent and fresh. The service was slow even with a very light crowd. The food was great which made up for the wait. Try the fire cracker shrimp or the fish tacos. The lunch prices were very reasonable. We will visit this... More
