“Big Fish has an oriental influence”
Reviewed October 16, 2013

A big surprise for us. We really liked it and did not know what to expect. The fish, go figure, was very good. One of us had an Asian taste to it, whihc was very good, while I had lightly blackened swordfish, which was excellent. I had a fried lobster tail appetizer, which was probably not the best selection, though it was still good, not great. The table next to us had a huge sushi plate that looked really good. This is a good selection and worth the stop. it is a little difficult to see in a small strip center near the t-intersection with Canal. At first glance you might think it looks small and uncrowded, but we were somewhat early. When you go in, th space is actually much larger with the patio and the place filled up a little later than your more family targeted places. This is a good restaurant with a good restaurant's price range, service staff and presentation. Will go again.

“Excellent”
Reviewed October 10, 2013

Big Fish is in a strip center, but don't let that deter you. Very plain on the outside, but very nice atmosphere inside (tablecloths and candlelight). The menu is very varied with fresh seafood cooked any way you want it. Also steak selection, sushi, sandwiches and delicious desserts. This place seems to always have a crowd, so I would suggest reservations (it's one of the few
that accepts reservations in Orange Beach. Excellent food and wonderful service!

“Great Food where the locals eat”
Reviewed October 5, 2013

It usually pays to ask a local to recommend a good place to eat. It paid off again. I asked Mike a deck hand to recommend a good restaurant; he mentioned a few tourist focused places then told us his favorite, Big Fish. He was so right. The food was delicious and the portions and price were ok. The atmosphere was nice, clean and friendly. We will definitely be eating there next time we are in Orange Beach. Our server/host/everything was Chris. He was friendly with out intruding and attentive.
Of course I had shrimp. It was delicious.

“This place has it all!”
Reviewed September 27, 2013

From the minute we walked in, we were loving Big Fish. Everyone from the hostess to the sushi chef was friendly and polite. Our server was knowledgeable and helpful with menu choices. The fish was delicious and obviously "fresh" catch. The ambience is inviting and modern. Big Fish is a great catch in Orange Beach!

“Something different”
Reviewed September 8, 2013

Loved the patio area, food was very good. I had the puttanesca and it was outstanding. Others had the firecracker shrimp and loved it. Menu offered grilled, blackened & friend seafood, so weren't limited to eating all fried foods. Service was very good as well.
