The Big Fish Grill is a casual seafood restaurant with an amazing selection of fresh fish, as well as numerous other delicious entrees (crab, shrimp, scallops, clams, etc.). The place is always crowded, so be prepared for a wait (don't take reservations) but once you are seated your meal with be worth it.

The Big Fish had the best crab cakes in Rehobeth. Our service was excellent. It was a family friendly place. Highly recommended.

My son and I stopped at the Big Fish Market (take out area for Big Fish Grill) on the way back to our cottage after a day of fun down the street. We picked up a container of shrimp salad, and it was so amazing that we went back again the next day for more! Neva's homemade gluten free granola... More

Let me start with the "bad" about Big Fish Grill and get it out of the way. On a Monday night at 6:30, we had a 35 minute wait. Not their fault that they're popular, but you should know. They also ran out of lobster (not acceptable that early in the evening, in the height of vacation season). Finally, my... More

Thank you for your review and feedback. We apologize about the mussels, we never want anything to be sent back to the kitchen let alone twice. We are happy to know a manager took the appetizer off the bill and you were able to enjoy the rest of your meal. We hope to see you again soon! Brooke Bennett Big... More

Every summer we come to Rehoboth for a week at the beach. Big Fish is our go to restaurant for seafood. Be prepared to wait at least an hour for a table though. The service was outstanding, accommodating our large party of 13, with 5 younger kids. The mussels appetizer was so good we ordered a second one! The fish... More

Whenever we visit Rehobeth, we always make a stop at the Big Fish Grill! This time we made 2 stops because we loved it so much! Our food was prepared well and it always seems so fresh! 3 of us started out with the Lobster Bisque and it was delicious! We loved the salads with shrimp add-ons and the crabcakes... More

I had an excellent meal at big fish grill. Excellent wedge with house dressing. Topped with a filet of Atlantic flounder. Price was a tad high at $20.95 but was plenty to eat. Wife got a mussels in a some sauce and a salad was great with her favorite Greek dressing. Kids slammed the fish stick platter with fresh cut... More

Eating out while on vacation is always a challenge. There are the over priced big named disappointments, the dives, the bars or clubs. All to be avoided when you're with your family Big Fish Grill is a place to go. Great food amazingly fast and friendly service. Got there at 6:30 and was seated immediately. Dinner; starters, Bruchetta - a... More

It may have been the night we chose (Friday) or just an off night for the chef, but our experience at Big Fish Grill was something distinctly less than the great reviews it enjoys in TripAdvisor--or our own experience last year with carryout last year from the co-located market. By no means was it a disaster: The bar is excellent,... More

Thank you for your review, we always appreciate feedback. The cioppino and the tuna are two popular specials, I apologize that you did not enjoy them. Please let your server know if you are not enjoying something and a manager will do their best to fix it. We hope for your return. Brooke Bennett Big Fish Restaurant Group Management More

While spending the weekend in Rehobeth Beach with the boyfriend we wanted to eat seafood.
