This is a local place and nothing fancy but the food was amazing! The portions were huge and the fish was cooked perfectly. Often when we eat out, the fish is over cooked - not here. The wait staff was wonderful too.

Local place. Nothing fancy. Small place with limited seating. Very good service. The lobster roll was very generous as were the fish tacos.

Everyone from host to server to chef could not have been nicer. Fish was fresh. We had grouper sandwiches and seared tuna. All was perfect and the prices were fair. Exactly what you should be paying for a fish meal. Nothing fancy about the restaurant...More

The smoked homemade Mahi Mahi fish spread is off the hook😉. Grouper sandwich was one of the best I have had. Fun intimate atmosphere ( only about 7 tables) . Laid back with decent prices. Would definitely visit again!

Fresh grouper tacos were excellent. Lots of veggies on them and fresh fresh fish. Really good coleslaw accompaniment. Will revisit this place for sure.

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!
