Ordered the bowl of mussels for our appetizer. Nothing but disappointment with them. Seven were unopened, one was broken and the broth was tasteless. They took them off our check as they should have. The fish entrees were very good. I had the mahi-mahi and my wife had the sword fish. We'll be back there in the future.

Iconic place in the Rehoboth Area. Nothing fancy, Doesn't need to be! the food is fresh and the dishes are plentiful. Family oriented and probably (I have not tried since my kids eat food, not kids food) you will find something for the picky eater. The attention is good and the service is with a smile.

Every time we come to Rehoboth Beach, 6-8 times annually, big fish is one of the first restaurants we go to. We personally love the bar area in the back of the restaurant. I enjoy sitting at the bar and chatting with other customers around us. What makes this situation work year after year is THE FRIENDLY BAR STAFF. Staff... More

Big Fish certainly is big...but it handles being big very well. It seats somewhere around 350 customers, but it's not a food factory. It offers well prepared food that is served professionally by a waitstaff that provides caring service in a well organized setting. On top of all that the food is very reasonably priced. For this Big Fish is... More

We go here often for lunch. It has a large and varied menu and the food is consistently very good. It's not a place for an intimate conversation as it tends to be a bit noisy but the food and prompt courteous service more than makes up for it

We happily arrived here during happy hour for drink and appetizer specials. Fried oysters were very tasty with a light, crispy coating. Mussels in garlic, white wine varied in size from large to shriveled, and the sauce was bland. They do have several other sauces to choose from. Cocktails were generous. The big shrimp skewers were quite good, and they... More

Big Fish is a large, old seafood restaurant primarily with booths, lots of lighting and tons of servers. So, the atmosphere is not modern or sophisticated but it doesn't matter. The food is out of this world and a lot of it. The selection of fresh seafood is the largest in the area, served primarily in traditional ways. As stated,... More

Had dinner here last night with the kids. Calamari, crab cakes, scallops, mashed potatoes and cole slaw were all awesome. Kids loved drawing on the paper covered table. Definitely recommend.

On a weekend trip to Delaware we were hungry after visiting the beach. I Googled places nearby and after reading the reviews we decided to check this place out; I'm glad we did. The catfish was amazing and the sautéed spinach was delish. The staff was very courteous. We can't wait for our next visit.
