We've never been disappointed with our meals here. How they get the food out so quickly with the crowds they usually have, I can't figure. Great waitstaff! Someone is training them well. Everyone pitches in to bring food, clear table, etc. I like that!

This is a breakfast buffet in a big seafood restaurant. The choices were numerous and very tasteful. The made to order omlet was one of the best I have ever had.

This looks like a summer tourist trap on the highway. Nothing could be further from the truth. The Big Fish serves exceptional seafood dishes and great drinks (with a generous pour) at very reasonable prices. Great oysters and shrimp at the raw bar. The service...More

My hubby and I loved our dinner at Big Fish. It was a Saturday night so there was a 15-20 minute wait--but they text you when your table is ready, which makes it easy. While we were waiting, we went next door to check out...More

We have been here a couple of times but not recently. The food is always fresh and the wait staff very efficient and friendly. The crabcakes were out of this world, big chunks of crabmeat and very little filler. Just the way I like them.More
