This restaurant is worth the wait. Taking no reservations means that you will have to wait during the summer, but it is worth the wait!

My husband and I went to the Raw Bar at Big Fish today. The bartender was TERRIBLE, did not want to wait on us. We ordered a bottle of wine, she served us 2 glasses, and then was aggravated with us when we reminded her we had ordered a bottle. the other girl bartender was eating behind the bar. NO... More

The restaurant was recommended by a long time resident of Rehoboth. We visited on a 7/29/15 for dinner and waited a little over an hour to be seated for dinner. Obviously, this is a popular restaurant for seafood. We ordered Cioppino, The Fried Combo and crab cakes for dinner. The three of us agreed that the sea food in all... More

We've been here a few times. It's very very popular so come early if you don't want to wait. They don't accept reservations. But we love the food and service is very good. Very kid friendly as well.

We visit Big Fish Grill every year when we vacation in Rehoboth. The seafood selection is large and the food is always fresh. We like to try dishes on the specials board, like the Alaskan halibut or mahi mahi. The restaurant is a fun place to go with all of the fish carvings hanging on the walls and ceilings. A... More

I don't eat seafood, but all my friends do, so we had to eat here on night. When you first open the door to the restaurant, you get a big whiff of fish. After you were in there a bit, I didn't smell it. There was a huge line of people waiting outsideat the door, but we only had to... More

What a great find! We had a late dinner here on a Monday night. There were 9 of us (3 kids). Very family friendly. The staff was helpful and knowledgable about the menu. Beware, portions are plentiful! Everything was served hot and quickly. Definitely returning next month when we are in the area.

After having a great meal at Big Fish last year during our first vacation to Rehoboth Beach, we stopped in again for dinner with much anticipation. The wait was longer than anticipated for 5:30 (about 30-40 minutes), but that was mostly due to the thunderstorms that rolled in during the afternoon driving people off of the beaches early and out...
