We went to celebrate a birthday. The drinks were good. We had excellent service. Very good seafood. Located near the ball park within the river front complex.

My first time at Big Fish in Wilmington was well worth it. Our server, Natalie, was excellent and explained the menu and told us about how fresh all of the seafood is. We started with the house salad, which was almost a meal in itself and delicious. I had the stuffed lobster tail and my husband had the steak &... More

When I'm in Wilmington and friends are in the mood for an upscale seafood experience Big Fish is the choice. It's located in the Riverfront area which is a safe wide open environment with stadium sized parking so its easy to meet up and gather with folks before we go in. The restaurant is a high ceiling spacious room with... More

They recommended Big Fish Grill near the hotel. We arrived around 7ish and it was busy, always a good sign. We had good service throughout our visit. We first... More

My husband, my mother and I had tickets for an afternoon show at The Grand. We had an enjoyable lunch before the show. The service was quick and pleasant despite the many families celebrating college graduation around us. The food was very good. My mother loves seafood and said she would come back with her friends in the futures. We'll... More

I have been here on a few different occasions. Each time the wait staff has been very attentive and friendly. Even when it has been busy, my wait time has not been excessive. This restaurant is family friendly with a big "fun" factor in its decor: a nice mural of Rehoboth beach, enormous hanging fish, seashells galore.It has drawing paper... More

Great food. Reasonable price. Large portions. Got mussels and garlic bread as an app and they were great. For our main courses I got sirloin, shrimp, broc and mashed potatoes- cooked perfectly and tasted amazing.. My boyfriend got the filet with spinach and mashed potatoes and also was not disappointed. The portions were twice the size as I expected which... More

Food is decent, but it's like eating in a big warehouse. Very noisy. Not a place for a romantic dinner for two!
