“Best Chilean Seabass”
Reviewed June 11, 2014

This restaurant was hopping with lines out the door, but we managed to get our name in and then secure a table by coming around 6:00 pm. We had a great server who was constantly checking back on us throughout our meal. However, the star of the evening for me was my entree - a preparation of Chilean Sea Bass over the house salad. It was the best fish I have ever eaten and I love fish! It was perfectly looked, soft and tender with a sweet glaze slightly charred on the outside. It complemented the house salad with the pecans and sweet dressing. I just wish I could replicate it in my kitchen...

“Wonderful!”
Reviewed June 8, 2014

Ate at Big Fish last night for first time. The staff were friendly and energetic. The tuna with lobster sauce melted in your mouth and the cream of crab soup had plenty of lumps of crab with great flavor. The seafood platter was fresh and more than enough. The apple cobbler with cinnamon ice cream was enough for three and was a great ending to this wonderful meal. Our waiter Dave was personable and responsive. He helped to make the meal special. All that with a reasonable price tag.... Will definitely be going back.

“Awesome Meal”
Reviewed June 5, 2014

We were in Rehoboth for a "girls weekend" and went to Big Fish Grill on the recommendation of a friend. The food was amazing!! I had the cashew crusted tilapia with coconut rum sauce over rice and a side of broccoli. The fish was very tender and the sauce was very tasty. The broccoli was also very tender and plentiful. The others in my party got a salmon dish and seafood with linguine. Others have complained about the atmosphere. It is not a fine dining restaurant for sure, but that is not important to me. It is a large room with a beachy/fishy theme which is fine for a restaurant along the coast. I would suggest you get there early or you will have to wait. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.

“great restaurant, great service. great prices, great value, atmosphereless barn (the reason it has great values)”
Reviewed June 2, 2014

big fish, rehoboth, coastal highway, delaware is outstanding. the locals know it and mob it. i do not wait in line for food (lost 35 pounds in vietnam during tet because i would not wait in line for food), so i get to big fish early. it is a big barn-like restaurant and is a romantic as fenway park or yankee stadium. one does not go there for atmosphere but rather for great food at a great price. the service is amazingly fast--it is planned that way. i have never had a poor sea food meal in 7 years!
