Excellent fresh, local fish. One of the healthiest restaurants with fresh ingredients. The fresh catch prepared Big Fish Style and the simple salad are my favorites. For lunch, the fish tacos are light and flavorful. Nicole is an excellent server and very knowledgeable about the menu. The best restaurant in Orange Beach and Gulf Shores by far!

Owners, Leck and Jana, are always at the restaurant. Leck selects and cuts all the fish. He is very knowledgeable about different species and is always glad to answer questions we have about less common varieties. I am sure the non-seafood items on the menu may be equally as good, but we go for the consistent fresh fish. They also... More

We went here by recommendation of the Captain of Cetacean Cruises and it was terrific!! I have never had a better seafood meal. The seafood had great flavor and the steak was perfectly cooked. My children even enjoyed there meal, which was the bargain of the night! Thank you Chef!

Service was fantastic - from start to finish. Ordered the Red Snapper - the Catch of the Day. The wife ordered it Bronzed (lightly blackened) and I ordered it Big Fish Style. Wow!!! The Big Fish Style was delicious!! Definitely on our Must Come Back list.

From the greeting, to the gelato, this was a wonderful experience. Fresh fish dishes were enjoyed by all four of our party. Service was well paced, with good input on the menu. The owners are a delight . Very personable and concerned with the quality of service and food. A must eat when you are on the Gulf Coast.

Big Fish Restaurant & Bar is a wonderful restaurant run by a husband-and-wife team. They care about their restaurant, the food and the service and it definitely shows. For patio dining they offer heaters and clean blankets for those guests wanting to eat outside on cool nights. Really a nice touch with the blankets. My wife had grilled fish and... More

My fiancé and I brought several of our friends on Friday and we all had the Black Grouper bronzed, Big Fish Style and 4 Sushi rolls. This is by far hands down the best food we have eaten on the island....not to mention our server Nicole was amazing and prompt! We will be back sooner than later!

My wife and I were in Orange Beach, Alabama celebrating our 10th Anniversary and wanted to try a new place - glad we did! Big Fish had the best atmosphere, food, and our server, Shelby, was perfect! Go check this place out!
