We love that the Big Fish Grill is open year round, and the extensive menu of fresh seafood. The service, food, and prices make this a favorite.

Big place and looks like it's getting bigger and has a couple of other places...had the flash fried shrimp, which was perfect (cole slaw accompanying not in the same league but good fries); had the exact meal at another restaurant the night before and was...

Party of 6 seated and served quickly. Great selection of menu options, both on the regular menu as well as the daily specials. Get there early to avoid a wait - it's a popular place!

Two couple going to mid-week dinner and surprised to see such a crowd. After experiencing the food, I see why it is busy even mid-week. Wait was about 30 minutes as promised and well worth the wait. We enjoyed Tuna, crab cakes, twin lobster tails and Lobster stuffed with crabmeat. All was well prepared served hot and fresh. Servicer Jessica... More

Big Fish Grill is great for plentiful parking, efficient service, and above-average food. If you want Red Lobster convenience with better food, this is a good choice.

Great lunch at reasonable prices...Scottish Salmon was great, as was the shrimp. You can choose the preparation you prefer for many of the fish. Not a fancy place, typical shore restaurant...paper overlays on the tables, wooden booths, and some outdoor seating - but it faces a busy highway. Would definitely go there again and have recommended it to friends.

Great restaurant and best salmon dish I have ever eaten. There were six of us and everyone loved their entrees and drinks.
