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.

Everyone's meal was very good. The salmon tasted better than anywhere else. As a vegetarian that says a lot since I eat a great deal of fish.

Interestingly, Big Fish was recommended by a sales person when we shop at Tanger Outlet. We were told it is one of the popular eating places for the local. Coming from a country where we have great seafood prepared in various cuisine styles, trying out a local favourite is one thing a foodie will not miss. The quality of seafood... More

The Big Fish Grill has a classic sea food restaurant feel. I grew up going to the beach areas of Rehobeth, Bethany Beach and Ocean City. This place definitely fits in with those wonderful sea food restaurants I visited in the past. I was very impressed by the food here. I had scallops and they were big and done perfectly.... More
