There was a variety of appetizers on the Happy Hour Menu. The "peel-and-eat" shrimp were large and tasty. The margueritas were refreshing. I will definitely go again.

Obviously the Big Fish Grill must be doing something right but you can't please everyone. I've had good dinners here in the past, but tonight I picked up some food from the take-out menu and I wasn't as impressed as I was with the dine-in experience. I ordered the fried oyster platter with two sides and it was very good... More

Loved Big Fish in the past, but the past few times we have had consistently bad meals like to the point of thinking we were going to get sick from eating our food. I never thought I'd say this about this restaurant, but it has gone downhill fast. The menu and "specials" never change and the poor quality of the... More

We come every January and never miss going to the Big Fish Grill. My friends enjoyed seafood (delicious sushi, broiled seafood combo of scallops, shrimp stuffed with crab meat and cod) and I enjoyed a Queens Cut Prime Rib with Mashers. Natalia took great care of us and kept us in beverages. We did order some garlic bread but thought... More

We go to Big Fish for dinner about once a month. We love this place - there is always something for everyone to enjoy on the menu, and the quality is consistently good.

We headed to Big Fish Grill since we knew it would be a good experience. We were not disappointed as our food was as good as always. This December evening was very nice as we had a very short wait and the place was not packed.

Big Fish is always known for the quality of its food and atmosphere. We assisted with a retirement party hosted at the Big Fish where we found the staff to be very courteous and helpful. They have a newly finished banquet room to the back of the restaurant that worked out perfectly. Plenty of room for our party, nicely finished... More

We both enjoyed a lunch of mussels, jumbo peel and eat shrimp, and sushi-grade tuna slices, in a quiet booth.

Ate a late lunch/early dinner after hitting the outlets. We were all starving and Big Fish Grill was PERFECT. Our first time.... Had the cream of crab soup....the appetizer pizza....and the baby seafood cakes. All three were excellent. For our meals, I got the lobster roll w/neva's potatoes, orzo, and a scallop skewer. The lobster roll was on a perfectly... More
