We dined at this great restaurant twice while in orange beach. I had the fresh red snapper entree on my first visit there. It was simply superb!!! Our waitstaff was attentive and gave helpful advice on their dishes. Another friend had the fish tacos and was quite pleased. We will return to this great restaurant!!

The customer service is outstanding, this is a place where many locals go because they care about the customer. The owners are always there and are incredible people. The food is hands down the best on the island. Love the Big Fish style seafood! Thanks

We recently had lunch at Big Fish. The restaurant is very attractively decorated. Our waiter was efficient although not overly friendly. We were the only ones in the restaurant so I was surprised that our food took quite a while to arrive. However, once our fish tacos were served, I decided it was worth the wait. They were really delicious.... More

The food is very good and the service was excellent just not much for atmosphere in a strip mall and the restaurant is dividend into several rooms.

I don't give many five stars but I can't find anything bad to say Even though it's in a strip center once you're inside you quickly forget that - it is beautifully decorated and very cozy. Our waiter Jeffery was top of the line. Very friendly and knowledgeable and extremely efficient. The food could not be better. Three of us... More

We ate dinner at the Big Fish. Our server was excellent. He added a great deal to the dining experience. The food was good. Most of our party ordered seafood but I wanted some beef. I ordered the ribeye. It was huge and tasted delicious. The prices were slightly higher than average but the atmosphere was a step up too

We just paid $50 (w/ tax& tip) for a very bad lunch. We each had a glass of house Merlot to start--at happy hour prices, why not. Bad, bad decision as it was raw and obviously very cheap wine. We shared a Salmon and avocado sushi roll. OK, but the salmon was stringy and not sushi grade. My husband had... More

We are regulars down to Gulf Shores/ Orange Beach about once every month or two. We really make an effort to try a lot of places and especially new places. But we always keep coming back to Big Fish. Great sushi love the red dragon and supreme tuna! Both were excellent! Love the grouper big fish style but tonight had... More

They have a small area in the back where we sat outdoors. We were served efficiently and promptly. The inside too, looked clean and modern. Very pleasant.
