“Family friendly food and atmosphere!”
Reviewed September 7, 2013

We just had dinner here on Wednesday evening of Labor Day week and it was awesome! It is the perfect family-friendly dining experience. Our two granddaughters were mesmerized by the array of huge fish that adorn the walls and hang from the ceiling. They also loved being able to use the bucket of crayons to decorate our tablecloth!
Even better...the food came very quickly and all of it was absolutely delicious. We ordered the fried calamari and grilled shrimp for our appetizer. (Delicious!) We had barely settled into our seats and it was delivered to the table in what seemed like minutes. I ordered the crab cakes which were loaded with lots of jumbo crab meat and no filler that I could detect. My husband ordered the seafood sampler which he also thoroughly enjoyed. The girls had a large selection of kid friendly food to choose from, too.
I would definitely go back again and highly recommend it to anyone looking for a delicious and relaxing family meal.

“Excellent!”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

We ate dinner here on the Saturday night of the Labor Day weekend. I ordered the dinner salad...and I loved it! Fresh greens with walnuts and a wonderful balsamic/maple vinegarette. It was plenty to share with my husband. I ordered the penne with shrimp. It was delicious. It had about 10 very large shrimp, sundried tomatoes & spinach. It was in a lobster bisque sauce....which was light and not overpowering. My husband ordered the broiled seafood platter. He loved it, but thought that the portion size was too small. He got 1 scallop, 1 stuffed shrimp, and 1 small piece of fish. We didn't see a larger platter on the menu. Other than that...it was a perfect meal. I also high recommend the pomegranate.margarita!

“Good food, good service”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

Stayed in Rehoboth a couple weeks ago and the Big Fish Grill was in walking distance :) I had a shrimp/Steak combo that was delicious. Being from Md I needed some Old Bay to make the shrimp perfect, its was pretty good on the steak too. The service was well paced, maaby a little slow but no problems, its beach time, who wants to rush?

“Most consistently delicious food anywhere!”
Reviewed September 3, 2013 via mobile

My kids (13, 11, 8) love this place! The food is delicious, the portions are huge, and the staff is friendly. Well priced for the quality of food. It is busy and loud. There is usually a wait for a table. My only minor criticism: the food come so fast, you almost feel rushed. A great spot for parents dining with young kids who want a good meal.
