Big Fish is very popular, so expect a wait on the weekends. Ask not to sit in the bar - because the acoustics in there are ridiculously bad and the crowd tends to be a bit rowdier, naturally. We had to almost yell to hold...More

I've been wanting to try this place for some time, but my fiance doesn't like seafood. We were at a store across the street and asked him where to eat. He said he eats at the Big Fish Grill every night. I asked about the...More

Extremely popular place, which doesn’t take reservations (that I know of, you may want to check). Long, long waits. Big place, quite loud, not fancy. Excellent food, reasonable prices. Outstanding crab cakes. Lots of choices for the non-fish eater. Inexpensive to moderate.

The best fresh fish in Rehoboth. I have had the grilled tuna and swordfish perfect to my taste . Aside from dinner it is a great lunch place. The salads with grilled fish are the best.

Read previous reviews and found them to be true. Great food and service. My only reason for not giving an "Excellent" mark is for two reasons: Reason #1: Expensive for kid meals, drink not included. Reason #2: They charge on refills for sodas. I ordered...More
