Unfortunately, we have seen a decline in freshness and flavor of seafood at the restaurant from last year to this year. Interestingly, our server made his recommendations - they were the three most expensive items on the menu. My 11 year old noticed this little trick of up-selling. Not too subtle.

Went there because it looked interesting, can't wait to go back. Excellent, friendly and knowledgeable staff. The "swordfish filet mignon" was wonderful.

Seafood fresh and well prepared. Calamari appetizer great! Mussels tasty. Noise level high. We needed a cab to get back to our hotel and the restaurant was asked to call one. Instead they put us in this town car. Cost was 2x the amount of a cab, but no one told us that...we should have asked. RIP OFF. If you... More

Had a great time here last year but was not as happy this time around. First round of drinks we all looked at each other and said the same thing there's no alcohol in them. Complained to our server, second drink wasn't much better. Steaks were better than the seafood, stone crab were small and way overpriced. Manager and owner... More

Very noisy atmosphere. Could not have a conversation with my friends at the same table. Overproced, especially for something as simple as popcorn shrimp. Food review from our 3 meals.....eh.

I was there on a business trip and we went as a group to eat there. The seared Tuna was just okay, not bad, but not great. One of me friends got the Steak and she said it had a funny taste. Another got the Fried fish special and said it was great. The best thing I ate there was... More

Our hotel recommended this place to us as a locally owned winner and not a chain like most Orlando restaurants are. We were not disappointed. The blue crab encrusted grouper was superior. It is a must order entree. The grilled scallops were equally yummy. We wanted to try the stone crabs, but for $59.99 for one jumbo claw alone, we... More

Was very exited to go to this restaurant . We sat at the bar inside enjoyed some nice scotch and wine. Our first choice was then selection of oysters which was a great selection but were a lil to warm. Of coarse the jumbo stone crab speaks for itself,that's always fantastic and you can't really screw that up. My biggest... More

Our first visit to Big Fin was enjoyable. Our waiter, Jon, was very attentive and pleasant. Portions are large, and the food was well cooked. I thought the seasoning on my mahi was light-handed for my personal taste. Prices are high, IMHO. Entrees range from $28 to $120. Dinner for 2, including one soup, 2 salads and 2 entrees (and...

I have been to Big Fin many times & it never disappoints me. The food is outstanding, fresh, perfectly seasoned, and has so many options sure to please anyone.
