I have eaten here many times. The meal has always been good. This time not so much. I ordered the mahi. That's one of my favorite fish. I have cooked it myself many times and I have had it at many restaurants served a variety of ways. This mahi was absolutely tasteless. No exaggeration. It was terrible. Dry and like... More

We appreciate your feedback and apologize about your dining experience. We wish you would have brought this to our attention and we would have replaced your mahi. As for our popular smoked tuna dip, it is prepared fresh daily. We take pride in our food, service, and hospitality and never want our guests to leave unhappy. We hope you'll decide... More

The menu is what McCormick and Schmick to be. Great variety of seafood at a reasonable price. A little loud but fun.

I hadn't been to Rehoboth Beach in a number of years I explained that I had shellfish allergies, they take it very seriously. They had a manager come out to talk about food allergies and cross contamination. The food and service were great and I am still dreaming of the peanut butter pie.

We go to Big Fish often. They have really great happy hour specials and the happy hour is at least three hours long. We have also eaten several times in the restaurant and have never been disappointed. At the raw bar they have delicious 15-20 shrimp, clams, oysters, and half Maine Lobsters cooked and chilled.

This is the first time that I have visited Big Fish in over a year. We stopped by during happy hour and what a treat! We sat at one of the high tops in the raw bar area and shared several happy hour menu items which were all great. My favorite were the mussels diablo and the carolina BBQ sliders!... More

The food and service here is excellent. They have a raw bar with oysters and shrimp that makes a good appetizer. We like the Tiki Bar which is casual and a comfortable seating for two, Wednesday night is lobster special, a must for any seafood lover.

Consistently good meals especially for the seafood lover. Very casual atmosphere with good service. Gets very crowded and parking can get tricky. Never had a bad meal so will be back yet again.
