Great food and perfect service. Yes it's in a strip mall, but as soon as you open the door you are transported to a beautiful,relaxing place.

We had fried grouper. It was excellent. Service was the best. Tom was our waiter. Ask for him. Kollin from the Hampton Inn recommended we eat at the Big Fish.

Restaurant was recommended by a local bakery and they were spot on! Atmosphere was upscale but not stuffy. The seared scallops with fried jasmine rice were amazing just like Tommy, our waiter, said they would be. All the fish items were super fresh and flavorful....More

We had a mixed review on this place. The salad dressing on the Caesar had no flavor and the ranch was watery and flavorless. The shrimp in the fettuccine still had the tails on which could be a choking hazard. The red snapper and grilled...More

We came here STRICTLY because it was rated number one on TripAdvisor. Apparently we were here on a very bad night. The kitchen staff were arguing back and forth, the meals were bland, almost microwavish in quality and the kids fish smelled and tasted rancid....More

Hi Rebel56-- I wanted to start by saying that I am sorry you did not enjoy your experience with us at Big Fish. However, I do question the fact of why you ordered the snapper for $30 if you aren't happy with the price. We...More

I did not see the TripAdvisor review before going, but I fully agree. Had the red snapper daily fish plate, it was perfect. Had the spicy shrimp appetiser, excellent. Took desserts home, cheesecake was superb. Service ideal, my water glass was never empty.

I think it is fine for kids. Not sure it they have a kids menu or not. It is a little more dressy than a lot of places down there but still kid friendly. Enjoy😊
