I stopped here on a business trip to eat at the bar by myself. There was a nice mix of locals and tourists alike, but the seafood menu was diverse and immense. I had tuna steak with crab cake on the side... delicious! The bartender was friendly and didn't push the drinks, she let me eat and watch the game.... More

This is a favorite place for me to meet up with a couple moms during warmer weather. We can sit in their outside bar area, get great appetizers and cocktails at great prices. Kids can eat with us and then walk along the Riverfront while we relax.

John was great, I really had a great time for my birthday. This is the second time I have been to this sea-food place.

Awesome food is fresh and delicious . Outside dining with a nice breeze and full moon are a special treat. Our server was knowledgeable and made some good recommendations. Will be back.

Big Fish on Wilmington's waterfront, like its counterpart at the beach near Rehoboth, is a spacious, modern and well-organized restaurant with both indoor and riverside seating. Always impeccable service and the best in fresh fish. Reasonably priced too. Highly recommended for lunch,family outings and dinner dates!

One of the best "Fradiablo Mussels" in this area. Beer is always cold, staff the friendliest, and the lobsters do not disappoint you. Great place to be with your significant other.

The food was good and reasonable. Went after a movie. Helpful staff for explaining the menu. We were not rushed and were able to have a nice quiet dinner.

We were both hungry for seafood and given our past experience, we decided to head to Big Fish again. We had the Ahi tuna, shrimp cocktail, arugula salad, tilapia and a few cocktails. Everything was excellent. Service was great too. This is a well managed restaurant!
