After one of the best meals in Las Vegas the week before, I never expected to find another great restaurant, a week later on the other side of the country. To my surprise I went to Big Fish Grill in Rehoboth Beach, Del. for dinner with some business clients. Tripadvisor reviews were good, and said to be sure to arrive... More

We found Big Fish Grill last year when we were in Lewes, DE. It was fabulous then and it was fabulous this time around. There was only one small misstep in their food preparation out of the 3 times we ate there and that was with the grilled shrimp. Both times they came out, they had been over cooked. Other... More

This is one of our local favorites. We enjoy the cream of crab soup and the variety of seafood. We also enjoy the big fish salad with our choice of fish added. For dessert the peanut butter pie is delicious and the portion is huge. We often take pie to go and have dessert for two nights! It is often... More

This was our first time here, and it won't be our last. The food was very good, especially the lobster bisque. Our server (Tessa) was very personable and attentive! This place always seems packed and now I see why. You won't be disappointed.

Enjoyed a wonderful birthday meal for my daughter. Large booths with plenty of room for six. Very responsive service. Seafood pasta dishes - shrimp, lobster, and scallops very tender, nothing overcooked. Lobster tail melt in your mouth. Kids loved fried shrimp. Wonderful chocolate cake and ice cream for my daughter.

Have eaten here before. Unmemorable meals. Tried it again last night. Wanted simple, great seafood. Why can't the kitchen let good seafood just be? All doctored up. Sides? Again, give me a simple classic. But the succotash was like a creamed corn soup. Mostly cream. There was not too much they could do to shrimp cocktail, so I'm sticking with... More

Maybe I'm spoiled when it comes to seafood, but I wasn't impressed with Big Fish. I am from New England and have been eating fresh fish all my life, so my perspective is a bit jaded. Yes, there were lots of choices and the preparation was okay, but the prices are outrageous for what you get. In most cases, you... More

A busy eatery, especially in summer but popular with locals all year. Good service, good food, nice decor. Usually offer holiday buffets but won't take reservations, so a wait recently was 90 minutes. We left and found another excellent place. Recommend that you arrive no later than 4:30 pm gor dinner in summer. Lunch is quite nice and it is... More
