Description: Founded in 1997 by brothers Norman and Eric Sugrue, Delaware's Big Fish Grill has become one of the premier spots for casual dining in the region. A unique blend of original recipes, must have favorites and affordable prices have resulted in a dedicated following. Enough so to earn numerous "Best Seafood at the Beach" awards by Delaware Today magazine. The secret ingredient of the Big Fish Grill success story is a commitment to providing fresh, great tasting dishes, unsurpassed hospitality and impeccable customer service. Big Fish Grill offers a diverse menu featuring not only hand selected seafood at its absolute freshness but also delicious steaks and pasta in a casual, relaxed atmosphere. Big Fish Grill has something for everyone!

Celebrated an anniversary with our family. Most restaurants disappoint me in some way but not this one. Excellent baked clams, rock fish and salmon. Tasty salad, sides and garlic bread. White wine was chilled perfectly and good selection by the glass. Seated quickly on a busy holiday weekend; good service; nothing to complain about!

After reading the reviews of this place. You will not be disappointed with food quality, service and hospitality. Great place to eat seafood. Get there early to get a table. No reservations allowed.

Staying with friends in nearby Dewey Beach at the end of July, we were looking for a a good seafood restaurant. Despite its large size, flashing neon lights, and mega-restaurant facade, it was a surprise to have a very fine all around experience. Without a reservation, we were seated quickly, the wine list was OK and reasonably priced. Service was prompt and pleasant. The menu, as might be expected, was voluminous and also fairly priced. The steamed shrimp and sauteed soft shell crabs were excellent and certainly worth the visit. We will definitely return on our next visit to Rehoboth. In my opinion, the best seafood restaurant in the area.

We have a beach home in Delaware and try new restaurants all the time. We came to Big Fish Grill on the recommendation of a colleague back home in Pennsylvania and were not disappointed! The fried shrimp were the freshest and tastiest I've ever had! The smoked tuna dip that kicks off your dining experience is unique and very good. The service was great, the wait shorter than quoted, and the food came out quick and hot. I may put off trying new restaurants for a while so we can go back! Brooke was our waitress and did a great job.

If you don't mind dropping some dollars on dinner, this is a great place to do it. We have been regular vacationers here for a decade and we have always thoroughly enjoyed every bite that we have had here. Crab cakes were great, shrimp skewers delicious, Neva's potatoes are perfect, but my favorite is simple...love their garlic buttermilk dressing on their romaine salad. Worth the wait for a table at The Big Fish!
