This review was two months after my visit because I haven't been back to the restaurant itself and won't be. The food is not as good as it used to be, just so-so. I really don't think they care because they'll always have tourists who eventually will go somewhere else. But the reason for this review is I came in... More

The daily specials menu is big enough to be the only menu you look at- fresh seafood options and delectable preparations abound! My go to favorite is the Caramelized salmon but I've tried many items including the Big Fish grilled shrimp. Their raw bar is fantastic is are the many bar specialities. They are also well known for their homemade... More

The staff were friendly and the seafood delicious and fresh. The lobster roll sandwich was outstanding. Big chunks of succulent Maine lobster, French fries were crisp. My wife had a bowl of lobster bisque, very very good but was not garnished with lobster chunks. My mom ordered the caramelized salmon which was awesome. Dad had fried shrimp which was sweet... More

What a great restaurant. It gets kid of busy in the summer months so be prepared to wait. But the wait is worth it. All the meals are great.

I am a local who, for years, has supported and enjoyed the various restaurants of the Big Fish Group. Big Fish Grill was never amazing but it did offer consistently good seafood year round for a moderate price point. Tonight's visit has left me disappointed and stunned that this establishment has now joined the ranks of resort tourist traps. While... More

Consistently good, but something has happened to one of my favorite items. Someone forgot the cheese in the Neva's potatoes or the recipe has changed. Not good. Evarything else as before. Service good. Salmon, scallops, shrimp always good. Would like to see real lemon wedges for the iced tea instead of "bar lemons". But, please fix the Neva's potatoes or... More
