Delicious and Interesting Menu

I make this a stop every vacation. The food is fresh and delicious. I love the menu, there is always something different and there is lots to choose from. Be prepared for a VERY long wait in season.

Always a homerun at this place. However, almost always a wait during summer and weekends. Food outstanding, service great: worth the wait. Parking on site. Market place next door is added bonus

If you like fresh flavorful seafood, this is the place to go. This is our favorite seafood restaurant. Just about anything you order will be good. They give you a complimentary appetizer of a smoked fish spread and crackers. Great restaurant for families. Sunday bunch is not for the faint of heart. So much delicious food, so little time or...

The food was excellent. My family really enjoyed it! Our waiter was very attentive and came back several times to check on us without being intrusive. I can't wait to return.

This is a good seafood restaurant located on rt.1. Our service was good. The smoked tuna spread on the table was excellent. We went to their market next door and brought some to bring home. It was lobster night so we had a whole lobster and broiled seafood platter. Arrive by 5:30 or you will wait for a table. It... More

We stopped at Big Fish Grill in Rehoboth after biking at the Breakwater Junction bike trail near Lewes. Big Fish has a very good selection of fish to choose from and the menu contains daily specials. I ordered the Big Fish Jambalaya with andouille sausage, crawfish, shrimp and chicken in a spicy sauce served over rice. The dish was tasty... More

The waitress was only working there 4 months but she knew about everything in the menu and made great suggestions on how we can order the fish. We were extremely impressed with the service. Food was very good. Use the sea salt that's on the table because the food is not salty at all but tastes very good after just... More

My husband and I dined there last night. The portable raw bar was amazing. The oysters were shucked table side for us and were perfectly chilled.

Big Fish is conveniently located on Rte. 1 and is always crowded, weekdays or weekends. The best way to enjoy their delicious crab cakes is to order take-out early in the day & pick up right at dinnertime in their shop next door.

A yearly tradition on our vacation to Rehoboth Beach. Great food. Good atmosphere. Always busy. Always-friendly staff. Expansive menu (for adults and kids, alike). If you have a large party, I suggest calling ahead.
