We've never been disappointed with our meals here. How they get the food out so quickly with the crowds they usually have, I can't figure. Great waitstaff! Someone is training them well. Everyone pitches in to bring food, clear table, etc. I like that!

We've been to Rehoboth many times but had never been to this fine establishment. Wednesday night is lobster night so it was very crowded. We were told it would be a 25 minute wait but it was only 15...sweet. We started with a blueberry lemon martini. It was great. I had a Caesar salad (which was really big enough for... More

This is a breakfast buffet in a big seafood restaurant. The choices were numerous and very tasteful. The made to order omlet was one of the best I have ever had.

This looks like a summer tourist trap on the highway. Nothing could be further from the truth. The Big Fish serves exceptional seafood dishes and great drinks (with a generous pour) at very reasonable prices. Great oysters and shrimp at the raw bar. The service is lighting fast and everyone is very friendly. They don't take reservations so be prepared... More

Positives...great range of fresh fish dishes. Something for everyone on the menu. Has a good seafood restaurant flare. Nice bar area. Negatives Hard to see the menu...I used my phone to read the menu. Print on the pink page was small and where we sat there wasn't much light. Some items were a bit overpriced.

We went here twice in a 5 day span! That should tell you how very good this restaurant is. Don't miss lobster night on Wednesday, from whole lobsters to tails, they're fresh and from Maine. Their shrimp and scallops are also tasty and fresh. There is a variety of side dishes and soups of the day. If you want a... More

My hubby and I loved our dinner at Big Fish. It was a Saturday night so there was a 15-20 minute wait--but they text you when your table is ready, which makes it easy. While we were waiting, we went next door to check out their seafood market (wow! Awesome option if you are staying somewhere with a kitchen). For... More

Ate here for the first time & it was awesome. My husband & I had a seafood pasta dish & it was fabulous. There was seafood in every bite. Also, it was a very big portion, worth every cent. Can't wait to go back & try something else.

We have been here a couple of times but not recently. The food is always fresh and the wait staff very efficient and friendly. The crabcakes were out of this world, big chunks of crabmeat and very little filler. Just the way I like them.

This was our first trip to rehoboth beach. When we checked on line this restaurant had good ratings so 8 of us went for a Saturday night dinner. It was crowded but the wait time was short. The staff were pleasant and attentive. The food was fresh and tasty as well as a great drink menu. Definitely worth coming again... More
