Since I live locally, I've eaten here quite a bit since they first opened and even hostessed here in my younger years. Came here for dinner with the kids and we had a pleasurable meal and experience. Definitely get there early even in the off season as it fills up quickly! We had the calamari appetizer to start, which in... More

This review was two months after my visit because I haven't been back to the restaurant itself and won't be. The food is not as good as it used to be, just so-so. I really don't think they care because they'll always have tourists who eventually will go somewhere else. But the reason for this review is I came in... More

The daily specials menu is big enough to be the only menu you look at- fresh seafood options and delectable preparations abound! My go to favorite is the Caramelized salmon but I've tried many items including the Big Fish grilled shrimp. Their raw bar is fantastic is are the many bar specialities.

The staff were friendly and the seafood delicious and fresh. The lobster roll sandwich was outstanding. Big chunks of succulent Maine lobster, French fries were crisp. My wife had a bowl of lobster bisque, very very good but was not garnished with lobster chunks. My mom ordered the caramelized salmon which was awesome. Dad had fried shrimp which was sweet... More

I am a local who, for years, has supported and enjoyed the various restaurants of the Big Fish Group. Big Fish Grill was never amazing but it did offer consistently good seafood year round for a moderate price point.

We are sorry you feel that Big Fish does not care about locals taste or experience anymore as that is far from the case. We have been testing out different fries to use due to a few costumer complaints in regards to our original hand cut fries. We take guest feedback seriously and always try to make improvements.
