It is easy to see why this restaurant is rated high. We went there twice during our vacation. We had the Big Fish Sine entree twice, once with red snapper and the other with Salmon. Both were excellent. The jasmine rice with the sauce went well with the fish. Even the crackers (flatbread) with butter were tasty. We also enjoyed... More

This place has a happy hour from 11:00 till 6:00 where some foods and drinks are half price, but it doesn't taste half price, it's delicious, love the sushi, spicy tuna Also great fresh fish dishes, eat inside or on the back patio surrounded by flowers, a regular stop for us

Had the special, halibut, mashed potatoes, cooked spinach. I had it sautéed, my wife had it bronzed. Not much flavor in the fish. We did not eat the spinach, and the potatoes were blah.

I had the best Tuna I've ever tried in a restaurant in USA! I loved the atmosphere and the service was great. I highly recommend :)

Easily one of the top three restaurants in Orange Beach! Don't be put off that it's in a strip mall because when you walk in you're transformed into a chic, trendy environment that you can feel comfortable in whether you're dressed up or dressed down...looking for a casual experience or a romantic getaway. The food was delicious, beautifully presented and... More

Not only did we fall in love with the city but also this restaurant after dining there on our anniversary . Sitting here at home now thinking about how my 10th Wedding anniversary went from ruined...

The sushi was delicious and the red snapper was the catch of the day. The price is expensive for what you get, but you will enjoy!

We tried out Big Fish last night. The food was excellent! I had seaweed salad and black grouper. They both were super tasty. My wife had steak and a simple salad. She enjoyed both. The menu and food quality are worth a trip into Big Fish! I just wish they could move the location from a little commercial strip building... More

We ate here as our "nice" dinner out. It was between here or Cosmos. We chose here because they focus on fresh fish. Our group at 6 people. Four adults and two kids. The wait was 20 minutes. Our server was the nicest out of all the places we had been to. She was very informative about the area. Food... More
