Delicious food. I had crab cakes, sweet potato mash, and creamed spinach. Great service. Definitely a new favorite.

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.

My husband and I had a great lunch today. I had the fresh flounder which was served with saffron rice and I selected sauteed spinach as my side. I started my meal with a bowl of Maryland crab soup, which was very good, slightly spicey and served hot. The fish was broiled correctly. There were a variety of sauces available,... More

Great, fresh seafood and a fun environment. Our server Kayliee was super engaged and energetic and the old bay on the table went to great use. I had swordfish and my wife enjoyed the tilapia fingers. Highly recommend (they are open in the slow season)!!
