Great variety of seafood

We went as a party of 6 and it took a while to get seated. The menu is extensive, but VERY limited options if you are vegetarian. The seafood lovers in the group were happy. The kids liked their options too. Nice variety of seasonal catches, and don't forget to get the key lime pie for dessert.

Our family had dinner with friends, and we enjoyed a great experience for the most part. Our server was very attentive and considerate. The food was high-quality and cooked very well, without exception. The dining room, however, was warm. When one is looking for dinner at the beach, unless seated outside, it is nice to have a little AC to... More

This restaurant does not take reservations and will only seat full parties but that does not dissuade the crowds of people who wait in line to eat. The food is very good and the prices are reasonable. I had the salmon and it was delicious. I chose the mashed sweet potatoes and the mound was enormous but tasted so good,... More

Based on our hotel staff's recommendation we headed to Big Fish Grill. From the rancid tuna spread, that accompanied the bread to one of our main courses which was grilled shrimp that had an off taste- we were totally disappointed.

Went here with family (7 adults and 2 toddlers). There was a little wait (5 minutes) and the staff were great! The service was great and food even better! Price was what was to be expected at a beach town in June, but well worth it. Will definitely be going there again.

The owners of the house we rented said this was their favorite restaurant in Rehoboth. We went for lunch and it lived up to their recommendation. The soft shell crab was sauteed and may have been the best I have had. We also ordered the scallops and they were very good and a bargain at $11.95 for four nice scallops... More

Have been to this establishment very many times over the years, and it's always good. There is always a long line to get in during dinner hours and during most of the summer months, so plan to wait. But there's a reason that there are long lines and that is that the food is good and the prices are reasonable.... More

nothing to write home about. it's an average place for an average beach. not a fun bar, okay food, confusing menu. my friend got the fish tacos, she said they were okay, I got the chicken sandwich, it was okay.

We apologize that your first experience at Big Fish was not what you expected. We have two large bars but we are more of a family restaurant than a bar scene and our fish tacos are one of our most popular lunch specials.

This is the second time I have visited the Big Fish Grill. First time was approx. 4 years ago. Food and service was outstanding at that time. This recent visit was a bit disappointing. The food and cleanliness were not the same. I can only attribute this to the tourist season in Rehoboth, and the amount of people that visited... More
