Wow, Ashley was incredibly rude and condescending server with a major chip on her shoulder! If we didn't have a $50 reward to redeem, we would have walked out in the first 5 minutes. When we checked in, I also needed to make a reservation for a party of 12 next month. She started to make the reservation for us... More

The fish is rotten. Whitefish was mushy with rotten skin attached. We were served Sprite v's water. The interior is hideous compared with the gemlike beauty of The Big Fish. The walls no longer have their swimming fish.

Big fish is the best seafood restaurant on the planet! Very expensive and worth every cent. Expect a long wait at the bar.. It takes awhile to get to a table. Fear not... It is worth the wait! Enjoy!

My man is worried that when he moves from Boston to Detroit, he will never find good sea food. Worry no more after we ate here! Awesome meals for both of us. He had the fish/clam stew thing (I would never eat) that is one of his staple dishes back home. He loved it. I had a pecan crusted white... More

This was my second time dining here. Husband and I brought my parents after visiting the Henry Ford & Greenfield Village. Arrived at 5:30pm. Table awaiting us. We were early enough to enjoy their happy hour/early dining option for $16.99, which was a choice of several fish (cooked your way) with rice/veggies, served with an appetizer (salad, soup, mussels) and...
