Went twice during our vacation. Tastiest grouper in the region. Friendly service. Fun atmosphere. Advise you arrive early as it's a small place.

Small, family style restaurant with very reasonable prices and quick service. Fresh fish caught that day can be prepared as you like it. I had a grouper ruben sandwich that was so large that I saved half for later eating.

Only stopped in for some fresh seafood. I didn't eat in. Shrimp and scallops were very fresh and decent sized. Price was a little higher than expected, but overall worth the effort.

Big Water Fish Market opened its doors on 11/11/11 at 11am with owner Scott Dolan at the helm. We are near the south bridge on Siesta Key in the Crescent Beach Shopping Center next to Siesta Spirits liquor store. We are a retail fish market that specializes in fresh, wild, Florida seafood and we also offer a simple but delicious casual dining menu. We were voted "Best Grouper Sandwich" on the island in 2013 and we serve fresh, made-to-order meals until 6:45pm on weekdays and until 6:00pm on Saturdays and it's always BYOB! Come in and try a Seafood Steampot with crab legs, shrimp, clams, mussels, potatoes and corn on the cobb or any of our other great selections. We offer our customers the freshest fish, seafood, and produce available in a clean boutique style market. In addition, we carry a variety of specialty spices, sauces, and products to compliment your seafood. If you ever want something that we don't have in stock, just let us know and we will make some calls. In most cases we can get it to you the next day. Whether you live here or you're visiting beautiful Siesta Key, please visit the Big Water Fish Market for all your FRESH seafood needs!
