Finally, something to write about!

Found this little gem for lunch today. My husband ordered the fish tacos with the fried rice and I ordered the fish plate. Both of our meals were delicious. Coupled with the fact that it is a nice atmosphere and good service we're anxious to return for an evening meal.

My daughter and I had an incredible experience at The Big Fish!!! The owner is wonderful and gracious lady and comes by to your table to check on service - very personal experience and the food is outstanding. We went back multiple times to dine during the week that we were there. SUSHI IS INCREDIBLE AND SO FRESH!!!

I happened upon this gem in winter when many restaurants have abbreviated schedules. The rare filet with lump crabmeat was divine, but the real treat was the potatoes with mushrooms, bleu cheese and truffle oil. Don't miss the scallop ceviche appetizer done with a sushi twist. Service by wait staffer Jeffery was attentive, but not hovering. Having eaten at many... More

My first visit to Big Fish won't be my last. Although it's located in a small strip mall & has an unimpressive facade, the interior will surprise you. Looks a tad upscale inside. Gorgeous courtyard for dining outside in back - even a small wall fountain. Nice. Lunch menu ranges from $9-$20, dinner higher. Ordered an $11 fish meal that... More

Beautifully decorated inside, you wouldn't think that because it is in a shopping mall. Our group had Firecracker Shrimp as an appetizer, very good; Holy Shrimp was good with three choices of prep on skewers; Pan Seared Sea Scallops good, diver scallops were very small, I'm use to the larger scallops; Fresh fish prepared Big Fish style was very good...

Big Fish is one of the better restaurants in Orange Beach. Everything I've had there has been good and fresh. It is upscale and family friendly at the same time.

I had mahi mahi served with mash & green beans. The fish was grilled to perfection with a light lemon sauce. Vegetables were excellent. Husband had a fried rice with shrimp & fried egg. They also have a sushi bar, menu looks good but did not try this time.
