our visit over the July 4th weekend went smoothly. No lines !! We were seated by the cordial owner and ordered recommended cocktails. The watermelon martini was very refreshing but light on the Vodka. We shared the calamari appetizer which was tender and enjoyable. The bacon wrapped scallops were large, tender and juicy. Each of us enjoyed our entree. A... More

Hello I recently visited the Big Fish Seafood Grill in Princeton and I liked the restaurant decor and the staff were very good and nice when greeting guest, in fact they were the best part of the visit. I ordered my food and to my surprise it arrived late and was not cooked thoroughly even though I ordered it cooked... More

This is part of the Landry restaurant chain. It has a nice relaxed setting, which is great for conversation. Service was also more relaxed and does not even try to give the impression of a high priced restaurant. The price to value ratio was excellent. So if you are looking for good seafood, at reasonable cost in a relaxed setting... More

A me-too version of Bonefish Grill with higher prices, a bigger menu, and much poorer service. The managers sat in a booth and socialized with the employees. During a slow period, the tables were not cleaned and the employees could not have cared about thew customers. Better off going somewhere else for the price they.charge. The same concept is done...

Although the furniture seems a little worn, we had a delicious meal... mussels, shrimp and scallops. Excellent service also.

On a recent trip to Princeton, my wife and I made our first visit to Big Fish because we wanted a casual meal with outdoor seating. Although Big Fish faces a mall parking lot, the outdoor terrace was spacious and the tables comfortably spaced. The interior decor verges on garish, though families would probably find it a fun atmosphere. We... More

Stopped in for a quick drink and appetizer at the bar during happy hour. It was our first time in this restaurant and it was very nice and unique looking inside. The happy hour menu had a great variety of drinks and appetizers at amazing prices! I definitely want to come back for a full meal sometime soon.

Being a former waitress I was in awe of how many staff members walked by a dirty pile of dishes left next to our table. We were seated at a clean table which was next to a platter of dirty dishes we had to walk around to find out seats. Hostess ignored them. They stayed in their spot for about... More

Big fish is a great spot for happy hours and is located right inside the market fair mall. They have a large selection of inexpensive appetizers and some drink specials. This is probably why the bar area is absolutely swamped during happy hour. Go early to get a seat because otherwise, you'll be smushed in with the crowd. Waitstaff is... More

This restaurant was perfect in every sense. Food was great! Service was great!, Prices were great! Location was great! We were taking some of our nieces and nephews and my father out to dinner. Although we do not live in or around Princeton, we chose the restaurant for two reasons, one, it's about 5 - 10 minutes from one of... More
