Another fantastic meal!

My wife and I enjoyed another fantastic meal at BFG. This is our top "go to" restaurant in Rehoboth. The service was prompt, food was great, overall a great experience.

First time visiting the Big Fish Grill but definitely not the last. Their Gluten Free selection - I a celiac and not gluten free by the fad choice - was absolutely great!

Our family had dinner here on 12\26\14 as a group of 23 people and we were sitting at multiple tables after about a 20 minute wait. They did our best to accommodate such a large group. We were able to hang out in the bar area to have some drinks before dinner. The restaurant is unique and there are various... More

We usually avoid Big Fish because it is popular which means it is crowded and noisy during the season. But off-season it is a pleasant place to eat. The Lobster pasta and the crab cakes were tasty with plenty of lobster, shrimp and scallops. The chowder was tasty and the bread pudding was delicious. It was much quieter than on... More

Freshest seafood around. Excellent service, but can get crowded at times ( since it is great). Must go if you are in town looking for great seafood.

This is our favorite family seafood place in DE! We have been here several times and always enjoy our meal. The fish is always fresh and nicely presented. Desserts are great too! Service is excellent. The restaurant is large and can get noisy, but still well worth it!

Good place to go for happy hour. Usually crowded, but the food that you get is plenty and then no need to go out to dinner.
