Big Fish has the best and freshest fish in Rehoboth. Their oysters and raw bar is huge and also very good!!!! They have a great selection of sides. The arugala salad with dried cranberries candied pecans shaved Parmesan cheese and the slightest bit of a lemon vinegarette dressing. They have a market beside the restaurant where you can buy all...

Big Fish Grill is our "go to" restaurant when we want seafood without a lot of fuss. The restaurant sits right on Coastal Hwy and has ample free parking. The food is always very good.

Valentine's Day night, so it was packed. Waited an hour. Great service, delicious and plentiful portions, but you pay for it. It's an enormous place. Glad we went, but it cost $95 for 2 people, no booze. It's a casual place, paper tablecloths, noisy, so the pricetag surprised me a little. Really tasty and well-prepared menu, which is the most...

Restaurant doesn't take reservations and it's very popular...so you can wait an hour or more unless you go early...the seafood is great! You can't go wrong with fresh fish or shellfish...the seafood pasta is absolutely the best...the cioppino matches any that I had in California...

Based on the many glowing reviews I had expected more from this place. Even though we had lunch here during the off season this place is fairly noisy when only a few folks are talking.
