We found this place through trip advisor and glad we did. They had a large selection of fresh fish prepared several different ways in which you can choose. Sushi was very fresh and delicious. Outdoor patio was very nice but be sure to bring your bug spray for the mosquitos. Our server, Jeff was right on top of everything -... More

After reading reviews here, my family and I (two adults, 3 kids) decided to try Big Fish. Strip mall? You will totally forget that once inside! Every staff member we saw greeted us, and they were so friendly. I was so impressed with the decor inside...not at all what I expected. We sat in the charming courtyard at the back... More

Yes, the Big Fish is located in a strip mall. However, I was very pleasantly surprised. The food was excellent and so was the service. I had the crab cakes which were all crab and delicious! Two people in our group had one of the fresh catches "BIG FISH" style and they loved it. I would highly recommend the Big... More

We had driven all day so were tired & just wanted to eat some good food & relax. This place definitely met our requirements! We were able to sit in the bar area & watch March Madness while enjoying our dinner. Good food & excellent service.

Multiple trips, seafood/beef entrees great. Food is hot, unlike some joints where the grub comes out maybe warm. Who cares if they wear t's & sneaks. Didn't care for the meatloaf balls, out of Molly Dooker. Oysters? General comment: Leave yer kids at home, screaming kids in a restaurant are such a drag, moms get a clue, your rug rats... More

We were looking for a quiet place to relax and have a nice meal away from the crowds. We started at the restaurant rated #1 on trip advisor, but left when told we had a 1hour 15 minute wait for first available seating.

This restaurant was really highly rated, but I don't think it deserves that. The restaurant atmosphere was nice but the waiters were dressed in T-shirts and tennis shoes. To be asking for $20 a plate, this is rather casual dress. Speaking of the pricing, I felt most of the dishes were too overpriced for the limiting amount of food given.... More

I snacked before dinner, ordered an entree and felt as though I had eaten about 100 calories. I am still hungry and spent $20 on an entree. Ridiculous.

Very good and fresh sea food. Also the meat loaf muffins are excellent. If you are into burgers they also have an amazing hamburger.

We stopped in for a late lunch on a very rainy day. Our server, Gabby, was such a sweetie! Had the best grilled swordfish ever! Hubby was equally pleased with his fried grouper. We will be back!
