Chris, my 22 yr old server, was outstanding. He was professional, friendly, knowledgeable and appropriately attentive. I gave him a huge tip (33%) as he deserved it. I started off with an Apple Pie Mule drink. It's one of their seasonal specialties. It was light and refreshing, though it definitely had a bite on the back end. I'm thinking it... More

Hadn't been to the Big Fish in a bit. Pulled up front and the free valet service attendant jumped to let out my girl and take my car. The restaurant is still beautiful and well maintained. We were seated by a very friendly hostess and our server was awesome. However, the food was somehow even more delicious than I remembered.... More

Excellent service and excellent seafood. I had the seafood plate with oysters on the half shell, lobster tail, grilled shrimp, crab cakes and vegetables. Food was very good and I highly recommend.

Loved the layout of this place, the food was excellent as was the wine. My server's name was Michael and the service from him was some of the best I've seen in a while, if I lived closer I'd be here on a regular basis, healthy options are a must for me and this place had plenty to choose from.

I haven't been to this place in more than 10 years and I forgot how great is was. Oysters are always a great starter. Having a dozen of those and salmon on the plank, I should have stopped, but I couldn't. I had to have a creme brulet. Besides huge wine list, they have local brews on the tap -... More

The staff was great and I love the decor, especially all the glass from the dividers to the lights and the vases. My husband and I both got the Skillet Seafood Platter since we like to try a lot of different foods and it was delicious! Seasoned perfectly and so buttery. The bread came with whipped butter and a salmon... More

Enjoying seafood in the midwest is always an iffy thing. After all, seafood is predominantly a coastal specialty, so seeking a seafood restaurant in Michigan would not be our first choice. We went knowing this, and enjoyed a good meal. Somewhat pricey, but our meals were well prepared and tasted fine. Glad we went, but we prefer seafood back home... More

i love this place. I choose it for romantic dinners for my wife and I. The chef is always amazing and the food always taste great. I would recommend Big Fish to anyone trying to get away from traditional Red Lobster, Olive Garden type places. I did ten years ago and still find Big Fish over most.

Stopped by with an old friend for after work drinks and snacks to catch up with one another. Big Fish no longer packs in large after work crowds the way that it did fifteen years ago, but live music, good weather, good wine and food made us wonder why we don't visit more often.

This restaurant is located near a mall and high rise hotel. It has a nice variety of menu items and drinks at a mid range price. Food quality was excellent and prompt. Serving staff was very attentive and courteous. It could improve and update its parking lot which appeared run down. As we parked in the lot, it created not... More
