For our "dating" anniversary we celebrated at Big Fish and we love this place. At least once a month we go! The waiter remembered us & brought us our favorite app. They set up a private table for us, away from the crowd. And even printed a special anniversary menu for us ♡♡ Quality + Service = returning customers

Servers were very... More

Located at the entrance of a strip mall the Big Fish is hidden behind the stores in the rear. It was such a delightful restaurant. The food was really tasty, good size portions, not tooooo big and not too small. The ambiacnce was nice with outside dining and sea shells every where. The drinks were delicious and reasonable priced.

Nice looking place and good menu but nothing special .... Service was ok, a bit slow ... We had the stuffed sole with crabmeat and the clams over linguini... Good but again nothing special ... Portions are fair sized...
