“Consistently very, very good food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2013

We always have one meal at Big Fish at Rehoboth. We are never disappointed. The variety of fish available is extraordinary, the service is fast, and we know the food will always be very good. Certainly, the dozens of people always waiting patiently for a table, must feel the same way !

“Big Fish Grill is consistently excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2013

Eating at Big Fish Grill is a tradition for us for every visit to RB. We usually go for dinner, but today we had lunch - my friend had the shrimp salad, and I had the grilled shrimp and salmon. My friend and I don't like spicy seafood, and both dishes were flavorful but not at all spicy. The grilled shrimp is done the same as their dinner dish - tender and full of flavor, and not spicy. Salmon was done perfectly - tasty and tender. Steamed shrimp and fruit cup for side dishes. Our server was professional, friendly, and attentive. Even though it was lunchtime on a Wednesday, the restaurant was almost full by the time we left at 1:15pm. It is a popular restaurant, and if you you don't want too long a wait, I suggest you arrive as early as possible.

“Amazing.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2013

We went to Big Fish kinda spur-of-the-moment but it was simply amazing. We had pumpkin crab soup that was delicious and full of crab meat. I had a broiled seafood dinner that came with creamed spinach and a mango risotto. It was all FABULOUS. Our server was very attentive. One minor complaint was that nobody explained the different menus to us. I was looking at the paper menu while my husband looked at the laminated menu (he's not a big seafood fan). The main menu had more side dishes on it, which I didn't see looking at the seafood menu.
We tried the special martini which was apple cinnamon, with a cinnamon sugar rim. It was so good & very sweet! My husband got the pumpkin pie with cinnamon ice cream for dessert. It was honestly one of the most delicious desserts I've had in a long time. We were all SO full that we couldn't finish it though.
The waitress helped us with our to-go boxes by providing some condiments to-go, smaller containers for the creamed spinach, and bags. We were very pleased, and the leftovers were great, too!
Overall, I loved this place. I will definitely return!

“Quality food and great for kids!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

We've been to big fish twice and both times have loved our meals. We have two young children and the atmosphere and food options are great for kids. The meals are prepared well and service is quick. We've had some oysters off the raw bar and some fresh fish entrees which were excellent with large portions. The salmon was especially well cooked.

It does get busy so we try to get there early before the dinner time crowd arrives. Since we have kids who eat around 4:30 or 5, we have not had a problem getting a table. It is pretty full and people are waiting by the time we leave.

Food was bland and service was too in-your-face. I had gotten rave reviews from past customers and was looking forward to going.food was blah and servers were at our table every second we could'nt enjoy our meal.
