“They certainly named it right”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2014 NEW

We have eaten hear twice and the seafood over Linguini was so good I just had to have it again. It has shrimp, scallops, mussels, clams end fish in a tomato sauce over Linguini. And it is truly delicious. I have to force myself to try other things on the menu.
The waitresses are all friendly and you get good service. The décor is open with mounted fish every ware. The tables have brown paper covering them that will be replaced with each new party.
Not the place for a formal diner; but you are at the beach and it certainly is a beach environment.

“Nicer off-season”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2014

We usually avoid Big Fish because it is popular which means it is crowded and noisy during the season. But off-season it is a pleasant place to eat. The Lobster pasta and the crab cakes were tasty with plenty of lobster, shrimp and scallops. The chowder was tasty and the bread pudding was delicious. It was much quieter than on the two other occasions we had been there in season so dinner was much more enjoyable.

“Fantastic Fish”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2014

Freshest seafood around. Excellent service, but can get crowded at times ( since it is great). Must go if you are in town looking for great seafood.

“Delicious!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2014 via mobile

This is our favorite family seafood place in DE! We have been here several times and always enjoy our meal. The fish is always fresh and nicely presented. Desserts are great too! Service is excellent. The restaurant is large and can get noisy, but still well worth it!

“great happy hour, delicious bar food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2014

Good place to go for happy hour. Usually crowded, but the food that you get is plenty and then no need to go out to dinner.
