outstanding service

We were seated very quickly which was great considering we came from another place that had an hour and a half wait. There was only one other table in the small area where we were seated so we were able to have nice conversation without having to shout. The waiter was great. Very courteous and... read more

I first reviewed Big Fish in 2013. We've returned a few times, including just last night, so I'm writing a fresh review. I'm happy to report that given our return trips, our dinner last night, and the words of other diners, Big Fish has continued to exhibit dining excellence over the past few years, including last night's dinner. It is... More

Four adults and two grandchildren; vacationing in Orange Beach, AL: We wanted seafood and I checked a few different sites trying to find a good restaurant. Reviews for everyplace were mixed. Decided to try tripadvisor - over 300 reviews averaging over 4. Tried it, loved it. Will go again.

Big Fish was amazing!! The food was so fresh and delicious. Our first time to visit, we had the smoked tuna dip as an appetizer. It was great! I had the halibut for main course. You could tell it was so fresh and served with amazing sides. The molten lava cake was out of this world. From the time we... More

It's become our place to go for great fresh seafood. Can't say enough about the place, everything has always been top notch. Would eat there five out of seven nights if I had the money! One of the best places we have ever dined at during all our travels...

We had the corn fritters first and WOW!!!! They were great! Then we had fresh catch cobia cooked big fish style with roasted red potatoes and tempura green beans. Again...DELICIOUS!!! Nicole's service was also great! The only negative is that the meal was so good that we wished there were more. Portions were quite small.

Big Fish was outstanding! The Holy Shrimp and fresh grouper were delicious! Service by Dylan was very attentive, and the atmosphere was relaxing and modern. Overall, a great catch! We will definitely return!

We found this restaurant online, reviewed their menu, and made reservations. Upon our arrival, our party of four was, first, unanimously hesitant to even park and, second, to go inside. We were very surprised to see this restaurant in a strip mall next to a tattoo place and a Domino's Pizza. After a little deliberation, we all decided to give... More

Big Fish is my family's favorite restaurant at the Gulf.. I mean we go literally every time we are in town!! The owners are sweet, wonderful people and have even made a point to remember our names and speak to us each time we go. The food is wonderful, as well as the service and the prices! I could go...
