I have visited the restaurant a number of times. We make a point to eat there every visit. The sushi is AMAZING! The sweet and sour roll is my all time favorite. The special is always delicious. My husband and I got the swordfish special last year and it was the best meal I have ever eaten! He got it... More

My wife and I checked TripAdvisor for a highly rated place to have dinner, found this place which we would not have stopped at otherwise. Excellent choice! They have wonderful fish that is prepared superbly and my wife who doesn't like seafood had a meatloaf dish that is by far the best meatloaf I've tried. We had an excellent server,... More

This restaurant is a Seafood/Japanese/Thai place in a decent loacation and interesting choices on the menu. It is a bit pricey, but we enjoyed a romantic meal for two.

This is our first trip to Orange Beach. As always, we check with TripAdvisor for places to eat. Big Fish Restaurant was rated #1 so we tried it. We weren't disappointed! Our waitress was Shelby, who guided us with what to try. A pre-appetizer was crackers and cinnamon - honey butter. Our appetizer was the Firecracker Shrimp, which was excellent.... More

We went Friday evening December 30 and they were packed. We had not made reservations since I did not expect they would be so busy. We were told the wait would be about 30 minutes and it was. Even though they were unbelievably busy, the service and food were excellent. We had Crab Cakes, Grilled Red Snapper, Firecracker Fried Rice... More

Great Restaurant!!! We all had something different and it was all good!! Service was great , casual dress is fine! Nice bar area to have a drink while you wait (if you have too). If you have to wait it is worth it!! We will go back next time we are in Orange Beach!!

Thank Debbie1940
