“Great Seafood, Great Service”
Reviewed August 5, 2014

We always go here on a visit to Rehoboth. Always. Pretty much everything here is tasty, no matter if you get the seafood or even a burger, it doesn't matter, it's good. I especially like the Caramelized Salmon and Neva's potatoes.

It's definitely worth a try if you're in the area and feel like some great seafood (you are right by the water after all). The wait staff has always been great as well. So I don't have any complaints!! Keep up the great work!

I highly recommend going here for lunch or an early dinner as oftentimes it is packed and they do NOT take reservations.

“Worhty of all the great recommendations!”
Reviewed August 1, 2014

Sitting on US 1/Coastal Highway, it doesn't look like much, but boy is it worth it. Great, low-key inside, fine raw bar, fine service (thanks, Lawler!). We had the seafood pasta for lunch and it was remarkably good--packed with fish, including two substantial grilled scallops. For $10.95, it was excellent. The $4.50 14 oz. beer special was a nice touch as well. The place was packed with singles, couples, and families and they were ordering across the fishy menu. Going back tomorrow and trying more things!

“Have the Seafood Pasta!”
Reviewed August 1, 2014 via mobile

We were down in Rehoboth for a wedding and the hotel recommended The Big Fish for lunch. Thinking it would be our first and last time there we asked the waitress for a recommendation. She gave us a few but did say the seafood pasta was very good. It comes two ways - either a cream sauce or tomato broth. I got one and my husband got the other. For $10.95 we got two huge and perfectly cooked scallops, three shrimp, three mussels, three clams, two nice sized pieces of salmon and the perfect amount of pasta with grilled, delicious bread. Everything that passed our table looked delicious. The service was excellent. We are going back tomorrow!

“Really good food, great service”
Reviewed July 31, 2014

My husband along with my brother and sister in law ate at Big Fish and had such a great time at the restaurant. The food was soooooo good!!!! I haven't eaten seafood that great , since I was in Cape Cod. Everything tasted fresh and the service was great. We had a lobster bisque that was to die for. We ended up ordering a pint to go, yup it was that good.
