Very extensive menu with many fresh options. We have eaten here several times and never been disappointed. Service was I thought good for as busy as they were. Best to go early with kids as they get extremely busy after 6pm or so.

Crowded, big restaurant with a fairly extensive menu The fresh seafood that doesn't need much preparation was very good (fish, oysters, shrimp,etc.), while some of the prepared dishes seem like they are institutional quality at best (rice, vegetable side dishes). My main issue, however, was our very expensive meal being ruined by the restaurant running out of lobster DURING our... More

Big Fish has one of the best happy hour selections for both food and libations on the beach! The big challenge is that you have to arrive early to get a seat in the bar which is where they serve happy hour.

My husband and I have dined multiple times over the last 20 years, and our recent visit reinforced why we love this place.

It's a VERY busy place... More

Now it's not worth going there anymore because of the employees attitudes, not just one there's three employees. We won't put up with anymore snidely sarcastic answers, followed... More

I've had mixed experiences here in past. So this time I explained to Amanda exactly what I would prefer in a simple shore dinner. She went out of her way, as did the manager, to check with me and cooks regarding acceptable ingredients. Had their truly wonderful crab cakes (lotsa good meat and nicely seasoned) with veggies the way I... More

Have been for lunch and dinner and they do a really good job on fresh fish. Good service, friendly staff and well trained. Nice setting, off the main Blvd, which makes it good for avoiding wait times. Wish they took reservations, but first come, first serve.

Great food. Do not miss their crab cakes, some of the best in town. Before leaving put a fork in a large pice of key lime pie. Go early,lines form but move quickly. Enjoy
