OK restaurant

Four of us went there for dinner. We had an assortment of appetizers and entrees, which were OK, but nothing special. The service was friendly, but the entrees came out just as we were finishing the appetizers. The waiter said he would keep them warm while we finished, but two of the fish... read more

Not a place that comes to mind immediately when thinking of food. The atmosphere is nice, service is good, food just not exciting.

Went to Big Fish for dinner this weekend. Had only been for lunch before. We shared 2 starters, one of which was good, the calamari, the other not so much. I then ordered the shrimp stuffed with crab meat. I could tell by the smell when it landed in front of me that I was in trouble. My fellow diners... More

Big Fish is one of the seafood restaurants in the Landry's stable. Went for dinner and enjoyed the dinner. Not everything was terrific, but overall it was a quality meal. The steamed clams were a bit on the small side. No one wants to eat chowder claims steamed, but these were very small. The shrimp cocktail was very good...fresh and... More

Decor is nice, large selection of seafood & fish, interesting spin on most choices. Appetizers were really great. Calamari and friends was wonderful. Bar staff could use some work, they pour lightly and when customer is drinking bourbon, or scotch they like to taste what they are drinking. When we sat at the bar we not offered a cocktain menu....

Big Fish Seafood Bistro is the best place to get fresh quality seafood. I ate there a few times and everything is always fresh and delicous. I recommend this place for lunch or dinner but it's not a cheap place to eat. The restaurant is beautifully decorated and pretty upscale located inside the Princeton Market Fair. It's nice to walk...

Fish was fresh, drinks cheap and biscuits delicious. If you are in the area and do not want to drive into town, this restaurant is the best of the bunch.
