Ate here on vacation & had to go back a second time because it was so good. Huge shrimp. Fresh seafood. Tasty cod. Homemade coleslaw. YUM! A must try. Will go back if I'm ever in the area again.

This restaurant has wonderful food and takes reservations for large parties, but it is VERY noisy. My grandkids love the Nevas potatoes and you can't go wrong with any of the fish or pasta choices.

At the restaurant in Ocean View it was great to see the posters about plastic straws. But it was a surprise to see all water, tea etc being served with straws. It begins somewhere but needs follow through. Thanks and keep up the great food!

Hey Aj192018! Appreciate the feedback! My favorite entrees are the shrimp penne (made w/ gluten free penne) and the ultimate grilled combo (also gluten free)! If there is anything I can do to help please email me at DSobieski@bigfishgrill.com.

We like that they have extended their summer hours and are now open throughout the afternoon. We ate there mid-afternoon on a Tuesday during the busy summer season. We were seated easily. The food was great, our server could have been slightly more attentive. We...More

Hi Lynnette! Happy to hear you enjoyed your meals but not so happy to hear that your service wasn't perfect! If you have time send me an email at Dsobieski@bigfishgrill.com as this is not the service that we strive for.
