“Very fresh lot's of choices”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013

We went twice in a week, we liked it so much. Great for seafood, best I ever had. Not quite perfect for steak, even after sending back the second was just OK. Be aware that they expect you to be waiting there even if they tell you 90 minutes. It turned out to be just 45 minutes and if you don't show up within 2 minutes you lose your turn. We had to call and lobby for them to seat us.

Thank you for your review, it is great to know your last meal at Big Fish was the best seafood you've ever had! We do tend to get very busy during the Summer so we suggest coming early or coming for lunch!

“good food but nothing special”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013

The food is good. I think it is a little over priced for what you get. Be perpared to wait to be seated but once seated service is very quick. Sometimes too quick like you are being rushed. It is also very loud in there.

“Love, love, love this place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2013 via mobile

We've been coming here every year when we come to the beach for the past 4 years. We actually eat here twice during our week stay. The food is delish and the service is the best you can get! Sometime the wait is long, but it is well worth it!! Very kid friendly!

“Enjoyed the Big Fish Grill”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2013

We went to the Big Fish Grill tonight and had a very good experience as a whole. They told is it would take 35 minutes to seat us, but it only took 15 minutes. They provided us with a place to put the 4 month old baby, which is always important. Most of the food came out together, but my husband had to wait 5 minutes for the filet mignon. He found it tasted quite good, and liked the lobster bites on top. Three of us had the pecan crusted halibut and all of us enjoyed the taste. The succotash in a cream sauce was very delicious. I also tasted the sweet potato which was excellent. The mashed potato was very good. The only negative comment is that the coffee they brought out the 1st and 2nd time was very weak. To his credit, the waiter kept trying. I would rate this place very good with reasonable prices and well worth the trip. I plan to go again the next time I vacation in the area.
