Always have a good meal there. Quality seafood. Caring service and management. One pesky fly bothered us during last visit.

After a night of competing in a swim meet my boys were hungry. It was getting late (8.50pm) and we'd already been turned away from Bobby's Burgers in MarketFair (won't be back there in a hurry). Big Fish welcomed us in with open arms, and served us immediately. The food was very good, but what completely stole the show was... More

We have been frequent patrons of this restaurant for several years and have almost never had anything less than a good meal there. The ambiance is quiet and pleasing. The dishes are innovative, beautifully presented and for the most part, delicious. The waitresses/waiters are usually pleasant and friendly. However, we have noticed in the last year, the service can be... More

Very pretty restaurant, excellent service and very good food. Prices are a little too high for my budget, except for maybe a special occasion. Gets crowded.

The food was perfectly prepared with the meal portions the right size. Aside from a la carte entrees, there was also a "Chef's Selection" with an appetizer, main meal and dessert choice available Sunday through Thursday. As Landry's Members (so worth it!), we had a very attentive server. Plus, the décor makes you feel like you're inside a huge fish... More

Anyone that gives this place a good review clearly does not like food or just really, really enjoys horrible service. I will admit that I haven't been there in the last two years because I finally put my foot down and refuse to ever even walk into the place again. It had 5-10 horrible dinners over the course of at... More

We went to Big Fish on Saturday. The food was so fresh tasting and delicious. I had tilapia and it was seasoned to perfection. Their mojitos are also soooo good.
