Good food, good prices, nice casual experience

Main St dining can be a crapshoot. Big Fish never disappointments, but falls just a little short of excelling. But maybe this is where they are aiming-- it is a casual seafood joint, good for Bloody Marys, a good hunk of fish and some quality sides. Good staff and nice menu.

We landed at the restaurant after being "iced-in" at a local hotel. It was in the historic district, and not far from where we were staying. I had oysters, and the girls had shrimp. We finished it off with NY style cheesecake. The food was fresh, made to order, and the atmosphere on a cold day was perfect. Quaint little... More

I had a blackened tilapia sandwich and my wife ate a crabcake sandwith with clam chowder. Foods were good, and the atmosphere of the restaurant was completely matched with this histrical area.

A jewel on main. Not fine dining, not fast casual, just a fun little place with excellent prices for the offered fare. A casual place with casual service. If you're looking to kick back and enjoy your stay, you'll love it; if you're a stuffed shirt looking for fine dining service, well.......it's available down the street.

Located on historic Main St., Big Fish offers something fishy for everyone. It also has non-fish items as well. The food was fresh, perfectly prepared and tasty. All of this while veing served in a festive atmosphere. The wait time to be seated was short, even during the week before Christmas. The staff was attentive and genuinely concerned about your...

Ate here near Christmas time after seeing all the lights on Main Street. When we arrived, the young man who seated us stood up from the table where he was sitting, but finished his conversation with a coworker (who was also seated at a table) before we were addressed. I wasn't impressed with that. The server didn't come to our... More

This is the 3rd time I've come here for the crawfish. Spices were perfect each time. Sometimes they can be a bit disorganized from a service perspective but they are always friendly and the food is always great. Main Street location is wonderful too.

Love his casual place with great food. Watch out for the nitro crawfish, it's HOT. but the cold beer helps reign in the fire lips.

Went to Big Fish on a Friday night. Didn't have to wait long for a table. Had a couple appetizers & each of us had an entree. The food was so good we had another appetizer & a dessert. The service was very good too. I'd recommend to anyone in the Grapevine area. We drove 20+ miles to eat there.

Managers and wait staff makes everyone feel at home. They treat you like family even if this is your first dining experience. Live music at nights on weekends. Love that they serve hushpuppies with fish. Drinks are good pours. Great for date night or social gathering. Small bar but booths are large. Small restaurant so make reservations of parties 4...
