The food has always been excellent, with friendly prompt service. They are able to accommodate large groups in stride. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who enjoys good food & friendly atmosphere.

This restaurant has been closed for over a year. It was popular with winter Texans. Unfortunately the owner passed and the property has been for sale for quite some time.

Big Fisherman has been closed for over a year! While open it served fried, fried, fried food. Drinks were expensive considering the restaurant.

This place went out of business a few years ago-better update your information! You really should have a way to let us notify you about stuff like this WITHOUT having to go through all this other nonsense that no longer applies-not very efficient. And this...More

Everyone in our family told us to be sure to eat at the Big Fisherman when we went to Port A in June, 2014. I called ahead to see what hours they were open and was glad I did because they are CLOSED!!!

Super yummy! We love to go there! Great seafood and chicken fried steak. Large servings and great prices. Oysters and boiled shrimp cocktail for appetizers always delicious.

Checked on this restaurant in August / September 2013 and found it was closed. Hope it will reopen sometime. In its hay-days, it was very famous. It had a long run. Sad.
