“Great Restaurant for Families”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013 via mobile

The fish is Great and you can write on the table cloth. There are a lot of choices on the menu. I like the salmon and mashed sweet potatoes.

The kids menu is good but the noodles need a bit more flavor.

The desserts are very rich, maybe a bit too rich.

“Great for seafood!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013

Casual, low key atmosphere, a lot of families seem to eat here. Had the arugula salad, shrimp, scallops, lobster over linguini, husband had pecan crusted halibut, shared the apple cobbler with cinnamon ice cream for dessert. All were delicious and seafood was cooked perfectly! Will definitely go back when in the area again!

“Family friendly food and atmosphere!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2013

We just had dinner here on Wednesday evening of Labor Day week and it was awesome! It is the perfect family-friendly dining experience. Our two granddaughters were mesmerized by the array of huge fish that adorn the walls and hang from the ceiling. They also loved being able to use the bucket of crayons to decorate our tablecloth!
Even better...the food came very quickly and all of it was absolutely delicious. We ordered the fried calamari and grilled shrimp for our appetizer. (Delicious!) We had barely settled into our seats and it was delivered to the table in what seemed like minutes. I ordered the crab cakes which were loaded with lots of jumbo crab meat and no filler that I could detect. My husband ordered the seafood sampler which he also thoroughly enjoyed. The girls had a large selection of kid friendly food to choose from, too.
I would definitely go back again and highly recommend it to anyone looking for a delicious and relaxing family meal.

“Excellent!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

We ate dinner here on the Saturday night of the Labor Day weekend. I ordered the dinner salad...and I loved it! Fresh greens with walnuts and a wonderful balsamic/maple vinegarette. It was plenty to share with my husband. I ordered the penne with shrimp. It was delicious. It had about 10 very large shrimp, sundried tomatoes & spinach. It was in a lobster bisque sauce....which was light and not overpowering. My husband ordered the broiled seafood platter. He loved it, but thought that the portion size was too small. He got 1 scallop, 1 stuffed shrimp, and 1 small piece of fish. We didn't see a larger platter on the menu. Other than that...it was a perfect meal. I also high recommend the pomegranate.margarita!

“Good food, good service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

Stayed in Rehoboth a couple weeks ago and the Big Fish Grill was in walking distance :) I had a shrimp/Steak combo that was delicious. Being from Md I needed some Old Bay to make the shrimp perfect, its was pretty good on the steak too. The service was well paced, maaby a little slow but no problems, its beach time, who wants to rush?
