Still the best!!!

My wife and I have been to the Big Fish several times in the past few years. It never disappoints. The service is attentive but they do not hover. The food is without a doubt the best in Orange Beach and Gulf Shores. The menu has a nice selection of items.

We love the food at Big Fish! It is delicious and excellent quality. We eat there every time we are in town for a visit. Ask for Tommy your server. He makes great recommendations.

Our visit to Big Fish occurred on the last day of our vacation in Orange Beach. The food was delicious and our server, Emily, was really great! She was friendly and informative about our meal choices as well as the area in general. From our grouper and halibut entrees to lava cake for desert, this was a highly enjoyable ending... More

Modest strip mall exterior belies the interesting, clean, Euro style yet casual interior. Co-owner (we discovered) Jana is from Czech Republic and welcomed us in graciously. Her husband and co-owner Leck has American and Asian heritage. They really got everything right! The "bronzed" fish is the best!! This is sort of like blackened but not as severe! Flavors and spices... More

Outstanding food with some unique options like the Asian influenced Big Fish style. We had Grouper Big Fish Style and it came in an amazing sauce, so good!! We also got the crab legs and they were cooked to perfection. Easy to snap and get to the scrumptious meat inside. We finished it off with a coconut tourt that left... More

This place is hidden in a strip mall but once you enter the décor is very inviting and homey. The owners and staff are very warm and friendly. The sushi is awesome. Great bar and martini's. The fish is delicious. They also have great steaks. Everything is prepared fresh! This is one of our go to places!

Came for early dinner at 4:00 No real deals they threw in a salad with lunch choices. Wedge salad had all the side items in micro weight watchers portions, even the cucumubers. $13 crab cake was very bready unimpressed. Ordered a Makers Mark on the rocks $7 for a little booze. Won't go back

Hi James A-- I am sorry you feel that our menu was overpriced for you. We do our best in ordering only the freshest and highest quality product available. Our crab cakes only have Jumbo Lump crabmeat. I'm not sure if you ever priced out 1 pound of JBO Lump Crabmeat before but it's not cheap. Secondly, our Wedge is... More

We have always had great food & service @ Big Fish. Atmosphere is nice as well, both inside & on their back patio. We sometimes order take out b/c we have small children. We like that we can order sushi to go & there is not an upcharge like at cosmos.
