Our first trip to The Big Fish was incredible. From the appetizers to the sushi to the entrees, everything was wonderful. Our server, Justin, was super knowledgeable and recommended great dishes for our entire family and a small change to a dish (oldest son doesn't like mushrooms) was handled with ease. Crab cakes to die for and the bronzed swordfish... More

Great Food -starting with Chili Garlic Sashimi Cubed Tuna and Avocado, Tossed with Cilantro and a Special Chili Garlic Sauce. It was served in a special "Wonton Cup" & Drizzled with Sweet Soy Reduction to create a tremendous Asian banquet in my mouth . Then I had Sautéed Grouper "Big Fish Style" , and they topped it with scallions &... More

The girl at the front desk of the Island House hotel suggested Big Fish, and said she was a server there as well. We tried it and it was awesome. Not what you would expect from a strip mall restaurant. I had the firecracker shrimp and fried rice, my wife had the bronze grilled chicken Alfredo, and we shared a... More

Fantastic food and our server Nicole was great. We had the yellow fin tuna, mahi-mahi, red snapper, and pan roasted chicken. All were great.

Oh and we had a party of 12 and were able to make reservations with this place, which no other restaurants would do... More

Being a local we have great choices but not all of them are consistent. Big fish never disappoints! The restaurant was of course busy, this is a tourist town and it is July. Expect a wait. Our server Emily was great! We started with cocktails, seaweed salad and a wedge salad. Emily suggested the lime, cilantro vinaigrette on my wedge... More
