We always enjoy our lunchs or dinners. The seafood is always fresh & the staff is courteous & friendly. We are never disappointed. The prices are no more than any restaurant of this caliber. Next time we are in the area, we will probably choose Big Fish grill again!

Nice selection of seafood. They offer oysters as well as fish prepared in many different ways. Large venue and nice outdoor seating. The food and service is good enough to warrant a return.

I met with friends here for a dinner meeting. My girlfriend love seafood and order a really large platter. Even though she's very picky she ate everything on the plate including the fries. Also, even though I don't like clam chowder I ate and entire bowl with great delight.

Had a business dinner here. Overall very good dinner. All the seafood (from smoked tuna fish app, oysters and boiled shrimp app, to lobster tail at dinner) was very good. My steak (as part of surf and turf) was just ok, but I should know better since this is a seafood restaurant. Stick with seafood options and you won't go... More

Server was not particularly well-versed but very pleasant. Halibut was good, not great. Plenty of parking and is accessible.

My husband and I enjoyed a dinner to remember at this Riverfront seafood restaurant in Wilmington. The menu is quite varied. Fish and shellfish are flown in daily from various locales, so the food is always fresh.

We eat probably once a week. We live on the Riverfront so its so easy to just walk down. Never had a bad meal and although the happy hour is crowded and sometime hard to get a seat in the bar, go early, like at 4:00 and you can get a seat. We really like this place. Good for kids... More

For a seafood chain the entrees are surprisingly good. Portions are very generous. The fish tasted very fresh, not frozen and then cooked. We've visited again; we were that pleased.
