Worth the price

In the days counting up to our vacation, we did some research online at the local eateries in Orange Beach and Gulf Shores, and found this place. The Fresh sea food and sushi is what drove us in and we knew we wanted to try it. The prices are a bit on the high side, but we knew that before... read more

We decided to go to Big Fish Restaurant based on the TripAdvisor ratings and were not disappointed. It was a beautiful night and we chose to sit on the back patio, which was a relaxing experience. The wine list is small, but good. My wife had a Moscato which was very nicely priced and extremely good. I chose a craft... More

We eat here often and always find the food and the service to be outstanding. We have never had a bad meal or a bad experience at Big Fish. Food is fresh and very well prepared. The owners are always there and very involved in the operation of this restaurant. Another huge plus is that reservations are accepted.

Was hyped up about all the reviews about this place and may try again to give a second review however will never buy the fish sandwich again. It was to me one of the most disgusting fishy smelling and a tasting sandwich, I literally got turned off from tuna. It was pretty much a piece of tuna on a bun... More

My family recently ate at Big Fish. The food was absolutely AWESOME. Our server, Tommy, was not only courteous, friendly, and handsome, but he was extremely knowledgeable about the food. The service he provided was excellent. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

We were a party of 8 including 2 kids. There was something on the menu for everyone. Unique combinations of flavors. The interior is definitely nicer than the exterior. Service was good. As the name suggests, large variety of fish. Husband got the swordfish and he loved it. Lobster bisque and crab cakes were delicious!

The food is great here whether you are craving sushi or seafood, or both! The sushi has a seafood twist to it. Great bar if you only want drinks. Back patio is really a nice place to be at night. Our waitress , Emily ,was the most knowledgeable waitress we have ever seen. Ask for her, she adds to the... More
