We were treated to dinner by another couple and had a great experience. From the drinks @ the bar to our meal after we were seated. Wait staff worked together and were very attentive. Food was excellent and enjoyed by all in our party.

For fresh and creative, all around spectacular meal, this is the place! There were five of us, and we sampled as much as we could! We had reservations on a busy night, and were seated RIGHT ON TIME. Atmosphere pleasant, noise level at a pleasant buzz, not disruptive to our table conversation. Cocktails were well made and refreshing, they have... More

Don't let the strip mall location fool you... This was where my husband and I chose to go for our vacation date night and it was trendy and on pointe. Amazing service, fabulous food... We had the chili tuna tartar for an appetizer and enjoyed every bite. Pricey, but completely worth it! The atmosphere is fun, classy without being stuffy.

Having eaten at almost every restaurant in Orange Beach, Big Fish is the best. The menu is extensive with something for everyone. The crab cake is excellent--light and almost all crab--and the fish of the day specials are all very creative and perfectly prepared. The wine list is also good especially by the glass. Service is impeccable as well.

My Father and I stopped by for a quick lunch hard time trying to choose a specific menu item so we opting for the sushi and a side salad and firecracker shrimp stir fry... I think I could eat this stuff everyday! Thank goodness I am local so I can visit and get it anytime I want it!

My husband and I ate here after getting married on the beach. It was recommended by the pastor who married us. It was a very intimate, private environment. We enjoyed the romantic atmosphere. The food was delicious and well prepared. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

We came in as sceptics but left impressed. They had six fresh fish to choose from and it was all cooked to perfection being moist on inside and lightly seared crisp outside, sauce didn't overpower fishbut enhanced it

8:30 reservation but we're not seated until after 9:00. Offered us to stand at the bar. Waitress was really inattentive. Food was average

Hi jcdpabw-- Welcome to the chaos of summer at the beach!! We sincerely apologize for having your reservation 30min late. Being that you arrived at 8:30 you no doubt saw how busy it was. As a matter of fact it was a record night! Congratulations you got to be part of it! We are usually on-point with our timings. Unfortunately,... More
