Thank you for your review, we are happy to know you enjoyed the food and service. The restaurant does tend to get noisy when busy but our market patio is now open and a great option for a quieter dining experience!

“Salmon portion shrinking under piles of fried onions - something's fishy”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

We are locals & have eaten here many times - not so much recently because each time we go, it gets worse & worse. We had a gift certificate from C'mas. The salmon had to be sent back, was raw in the center, the cole slaw was not crisp & fresh - old & watery would be a better description. The Neva's potatoes were undercooked. The salmon , which was a noticeably smaller portion than before, was cleverly disguised by a heap of greasy, deep fried onions. We ran for the antacids upon arriving home & have no intention of returning, just like so many other locals.

“Love It”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

For the past 13 years we have been having a girls weekend every November and everytime we have dinner at least one night over the weekend, sometimes twice a weekend. The specials are wonderful the desserts are awesome and should always be shared. We have never had bad service, the staff is always friendly. We all look forward to having dinner every trip.

“You saved my marriage! Ok, maybe I'm exaggertaing just a little.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013

My wife had a serious hunkering for some shrimp the other night, and all the seafood departments at the grocery stores had long since closed. I had never done a Big Fish take out before, all the years I lived here; but it crossed my mind last minute and I was sure glad it did. The wife got exactly what she wanted, and it was good too! She even let me have a bite. If you don't make your wife happy, she sure can make your life a living heck.

“Not so good this time”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

I hate to write an average review for a place that I like so much. But this last time wasn't so great. My wife had jumbalaya and it was just awful. Uneatable I fact. Tasted like tomato paste and chicken, sausage.
Here's what I conclude: if you want a great meal here, keep it simple. Order grill fish or order from the raw bar. Otherwise its just average.
