This is our second visit to Big Fish in Dearborn and quite honestly we are not so impressed - Its average food at Best - With Small Quantities at a high Price. We are part of the Landrys club and Big Fish is the closest participant other than Mortons in Sterling Heights. Our latest visit was the weekend of 3/8... More

The decor is beautiful, the menu looks wonderful. The service was average. After reading about the great fish dishes, I found the vegetables on my plate to be more tasty. Fish was bland, although the menu description sounded flavorful.

Unless you have an endless amount of time, do not go to this restaurant! Our late lunch time visit required about 1-1/2 hours!!! The kicker is the place was empty at the time. The Manager was totally incompetent!

By the time we got to actually eat we were a little put off, but once the food came all was forgotten. I could have written Heather Y's review: Signage is abysmal so look or the TGI Fridays. Once there the exterior of the place makes you wonder what you are getting yourself into. Oh, and the identity crisis, the... More

Once again, Big Fish did not disappoint. Whenever we are near, we make it a point to dine here. Always reliable and a treat. Had a great lunch, which during the week working is a rarity. Scheduled our day off work with a trip to The Henry Ford / Greenfield Village that included having lunch at Big Fish. Selection is... More

I had no idea this was such a nice restaurant. We live nearby and have driven by many times, but I assumed this was a silly chain (it does share a parking lot with TGI Fridays). We called for a reservation, just in case, but it wasn't needed for a Thursday night. It was my birthday and they printed me... More

The name perhaps is a misnomer because we dined inside with nary a glance at any sunset. It really should be named Early Bird Special but that doesn't have the cache of dining and the sunset. For $15.99 you get quite a selection from the 3 course menu. Three starters, four entrees, and three dessert selections. I had the caesar... More

We came here for a birthday a couple weeks ago and everyone who ordered fish - grilled, blackened, etc really enjoyed that. The birthday boy unfortunately ordered a seafood pasta and the pasta was all clumped together and not cooked well and he was the only person who didn't quite enjoy his meal. He'll learn for next time and order... More
