Big Fish routinely tops or nears the top of the annual restaurant survey in Delaware Today Magazine. After our first visit today, we don't understand why. There are several VERY good and Very innovative seafood restaurants in Rehoboth Beach. Big Fish is not one of them. Not that it's bad, it's just average. The same offerings one can get anywhere...

Big Fish Grill continues to deliver consistently good seafood with a few sides included in the meal. Another location is about to open in Bethany Beach so we plan to go to that location as well. Beware of lines-- you cant be in a hurry if you go during the season!

This is a great place for fish and seafood. My only complaint is that it's a chain and my preferences usually go with a good local seafood house. Nice and friendly staff with a good menu.

The food was delicious, I had the scallop pasta with pesto sauce. The place filled up very quickly so be sure to arrive early.

My wife had a seafood platter, I had pan seared scallops with gnocchi , one of our friends had jambalaya and his wife had gluten free chicken with special attention... More

Returned to Big Fish this past weekend and had another good meal. This seafood restaurant has a wide variety of fresh fish available at all times. Not overly expensive, casual place. Wait staff is a little overworked but nothing to really complain about.

Below average service, certainly didn't go out of her way to welcome or accommodate us. We showed up at 3:45 wanting an early dinner. We were forced to order from the lunch menu because the dinner menu wouldn't start until 4:00........unless we wanted to wait another 15 min to place our order (although some items still might not be ready...

Being out-of-towners, our friends took us to Big Fish for dinner. WHAT A GREAT PLACE TO EAT!!! food was absolutely awesome. the wait staff was exceptional and the prices reasonable. I'm so looking forward to a return trip to Delaware so I can have dinner in Big Fish once again.
