“Good. Nothing special”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 August 2014 via mobile

We came here for lunch. Ordered a margarita on the rocks which was good with right amount of tequila. The crab cake sandwich was nice, big portion and I ate it but nothing extraordinary. Nothing wrong. Tasted great but not special. Some of the wait staff seemed preoccupied with their phones but our waitress was attentive. I would come back again.

“Good Spot On Main”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 August 2014

Any time we are having a meal in Grapevine, Big Fish is one of the first restaurants to cross our mind. Good portions, cold drinks, great staff, always satisfied.

“Delicious”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 July 2014 via mobile

Was craving some seafood while on vacation and stop off here after reviewing post on tripadvisor here. Whole family was satisfied! Their tatar sauce was the best I've ever had. If we ever come back thru here definately will stop by again.

“Favorite Food Spot in Grapevine!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 July 2014 via mobile

We live about 2 hours from Grapevine, but when we are in town Big Fish is a MUST STOP place. The food is fantastic and I've not found as fresh tasting seafood anywhere else in DFW. I recommend the peel and eat shrimp, crawfish when they are in season or any of the blackened fish! Great food!

“Inconsistent... you have been warned.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 June 2014

Been here three times. First two times were pretty good, but yesterday was what i was fearing: Unfocused greeter (who seemed to have trouble doing anything except playing with her phone), slow waitress, therefore slow food.. We waited a long time for oysters that should have been minutes in a half full Saturday morning. Our Po'boys were pretty average and really to be fair, maybe it was the staff, but when my drink kept running out and I could see the waitress watching tv, the tip dropped by the minute. I may go back here, but my suggestion to anyone is to be cautious - it may be OK, or maybe not. The food is nothing special, but there are few options in Main Street Grapevine that offer much else for a real sit down. No rush to return or tell others. Kind of sad really...
