Not what you would expect in a strip mall but we went here based on a recommendation from a few locals on our sail boat cruise. It was my best meal of our vacation! Fresh local fish choices prepared in a variety of ways.

We ate here last night as our 3rd choice of restaurants because the wait at other places was too long. We only waited about 20 minutes to be seated here, but it was all downhill after that. Our waitress seemed completely spaced out. We ordered 8 waters and a sprite. It took her several attempts to remember the sprite. It... More

Afs0812-- I am very sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your experience with us. Big Fish isn't for everyone and i'm sure we can't please everyone. I'd like to say that our recipes are for a more sophisticated palate. We want our guests to taste the ingredients and the freshness of the fish--not how much sauce that can... More

My family and I had an excellent first experience at Big Fish. We had absolutely amazing service! I really wish I could remember the gentleman's name. He did mention he was a manager. He was very informative about the menu and happy to answer all questions. The food was great! I had the sesame seed seared ahi tuna and it... More

Big Fish is a fresh seafood haven, with a bit of oriental flair, and a trendy-looking interior. It's not a fried seafood joint. My wife and I ate here while spending the weekend at the beach. She had a caesar salad appetizer which had nice, green, crisp lettuce and fresh parmesan. I had a sashimi sampler as my appetizer. It... More

We were looking for something a little different than all the places that people say that you've got to go to. We chose Big Fish and it was good. It is in a mini strip building, but don't let that fool you, when you walk in you would not know it. The decor is nice and it feels upscale but... More

My family and I went to Big Fish on our first night in Orange Beach. We were told by our knowledgable (and patient) server that the fish on a certain part of the menu rotates with what was caught that day. Talk about fresh! I must say, the fresh fish option was excellent "Big Fish Style," which is served with... More

We chose to have dinner there based on reviews from TripAdvisor. There were seven of us in our party and we tried to call ahead to get a reservation, but was told it was booked. However, the hostess recommended that we stop by as sometimes tables open up unexpectedly. We decided to do that. The place doesn't look like much... More

Great atmosphere. We sat outdoors. It was not too loud, and it was very pleasant. We were seated quickly. Orders were taken quickly. Staff was attentive and friendly. Food arrived well prepared. Pricing was reasonable. Not certain I'll ever be back in the area....but if I am, I'll return here for certain.

We just enjoyed a fantastic seafood dinner at Big Fish! Megan, our server, was knowledgable and attentive. Our fish was outstanding. The cobia, red snapper, scallops, and the Holy Shrimp was super yummy. Not to mention the fabulous sushi that we had to start off the dinner...
