Always enjoy.....

Mid summer - the waiting line is longgg but seems to go fairly fast. We like the back room because it is brighter and seems quieter. The food comes out with a reasonable wait. The locals must appreciate the Grill as it is busy early summer and late fall. Our family, as many as twenty, find a... read more

When you arrive at the restaurant and there is a wait for a table, that is usually a good sign. We sat at the bar and ordered some drinks while we waited for our table. Great drinks, nice bartenders, and our table was ready well before the allotted time they gave us. They take your cell numbers and text you... More

The food was ok. Not the greatest we ever had. The prices were high for the small portions. Seating uncomfortable. They sat us in the bar area when there was enough booths and seating in the main dinning. It was extremely loud and no air conditioning, just fans. The service was good though. You don't get any rolls but saltines... More

I have been to the Big Fish Grill over a dozen times in the past several years and it never disappoints. From their outstanding happy hour, to their famous mouthwatering peanut butter pie - you can't go wrong. I just had the pecan encrusted Alaskan halibut which was ridiculous. Seafood is always fresh and the sides are excellent. The Big... More

We are sorry you feel that way. However, our halibut is one of our most popular specials. Our halibut is prepared pecan crusted, drizzled with lemon cream, garnished with tortilla chips and fresh fruit salsa and served with your choice of two sides. We never want our guests to leave unhappy. If you had brought this to a manager's attention... More

We have been to Big Fish many times over the past few years and have NEVER been disappointed. The food is always excellent and the menu offers once of the largest variety of choices we have seen. Excellent food and service. Nice atmosphere. You will not be disappointed.

As you know if you come to Rehoboth Beach often, or live here, especially during the Season, it is very hard to find parking especially at a place that serves good food. I actually prefer to come at lunch although the food is good any time of the day. My favorite lunch is their Greek salad with a grilled chicken... More

Try the pumpkin soup. It is rich, creamy & flavorful. Broiled flounder and any one of the wonderful sides will make a memorable meal.

A little pricy, but great food. The very best crab cakes anywhere. The staff will go the extra mile to make you welcome and take care of you from start to finish.
