The service was fantastic. Make sure to grab a seat on the patio near the walkway, you can get a nice breeze to come through (depending when you go). The food is very good. I highly recommend getting the lobster, it just melts in your mouth. They do have different deals every day of the week so make sure to... More

I will occasionally splurge on a meal, but I prefer to do so at a place that has soul. Big Fin is located in a shopping center with some other expensive restaurants, some shops, and a nice fountain. Not wanting to spend tons of money, I went with the shrimp pasta with white sauce. It was overpriced, in my opinion,... More

Not cheap, but great fresh seafood, amazing pasta! Nice family atmosphere -- very child friendly. Ask for John and/or James: super friendly, courteous, efficient.

We had a very nice dinner here, enjoying the fresh seafood and extensive menu. They have a great selection of both fish and non-fish entrees. The room itself is very spacious, with two bars and generous seating so that we weren't on top of other tables. Our waiter was very good - friendly, and attentive. The prices, however, are on...

We had a good meal at Big Fin's but thought the meal was good, but not great, especially for the price. The raw oysters were a highlight of the meal, which also incuded shrimp and Salmon Rockefeller. We ordered Bread Pudding for dessert and it was good but certainly not anything to write home about. Service was quite good, but... More

The food and wine at this establishment were impressive. The service was excellent as well. The only concern we had was we sat in a back room with some large parties with crying babies which really negated our overall experience. My suggestion would be to request a quiet table when making your reservation.

Unfortunately we only get to eat here once a year. We've come with family and just ourselves and every dish is always delicious. We definitely can say that the fish is fresh, cooked to perfection and served perfectly EVERY time. The oysters were delicious and served at a perfect temperature. Matthew helped us from choosing the oysters to describing dinner... More

This restaurant is in a great area, has a great patio bar and is good for happy hour. I schedule about two or three group meetings there per year. Usually anywhere from 7 to 15 people show. we usually sit on the patio and because I am a regular, even without the group, the manager lets me reserve an outside... More

Dined at Big Fin with no knowledge of the restaurant. Our server Jon was outstanding. He was available, accomodating and efficient. We dined on a slow night and the noise level was energetic. Be prepared for the restaurant to be very loud when it's busy. The food and drinks are pricey, however this was the best meal we had in... More

We go here every year, always lives up to the price and service. This year the service was awesome by Lisa, very attentive and pleasant. Food was outstanding, steaks, shrimp, grouper, and crab cakes all perfect with great desserts, this is one of those hidden gems, see you next year.
