Fresh seafood

We had a fantastic seafood dinner here. It was great to get away from Disney and touristy spots around Orlando. We had heard that the owners handle bringing most of the seafood into Orlando, so get first dibs on what they want. Whether it's true or not, they had a wide selection and everything we... read more

We had dinner at the Big Fin last night with a group of friends. The food was excellent, so fresh and expertly prepared. Our waiter was very attentive and friendly. I can not say enough good things about this restaurant! It truly was fabulous! We will definitely visit again when in the Orlando area. GO THERE...YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED!

I cannot rave about Big Fin enough! This is a family-run establishment that the family really cares and pushes to make the restaurant thrive. I had a 7 p.m. reservation on Saturday and was seated immediately and taken care of. I was personally greeted by the owner and chatted with him for a short time. What impressed me the most... More

I had the blue crab crusted grouper. It was delicious! My husband had the Alaskan king crab and it was good. Gator nuggets are a MUST!! They were as awesome as the waiter described them to be. They have a nice selection of entrees and appetizers and I would definitely go back. Our service was wonderful!

I was looking for a place to eat in Orlando and it was recommended by the hotel that we stayed. Great steak and seafood. Good service. About 10-15 minutes from downtown Disney. I will definitely go back to it this March when I am down for a golf vacation.

It was a crowded place and we were a larger group, but no problems, quick and very attentive service. Their stone crab, and shell fish platter for starters were great. Main course for me was a mixed seafood platter with three different courses again very delicious. Desserts were average, but then again that was not the main purpose for going... More

Like the other reviews you will read, this establishment is outstanding. From the moment you arrive, you are greeted, seated and informed by highly trained and exceptional wait staff. The menu is extensive and the wine and spirit list comprehensive. At the waiter's recommendation, I ordered the crab and brie garnished Chilean sea bass and was overwhelmed at not only... More

In Orlando there are so many choices it is always a surprise when you hit a home run. There were 8 of us in the party with 1 waiter to serve. At no time was there and empty glass, dirty plate, or crumbs on the table. All food was made to order so there was a little wait. But, well... More
