I recommend this restaurant for seafood and service. I have dined here some years ago, and this is still a quality experience. They deserve their high ratings. I had the Mahi-mahi broiled and it was excellent. The staff was well trained and attentive, but not intrusive. The outside dining would also be great if only it was a little warmer.... More

Had a wonderful time here. The restaurant is huge, so plenty of room if you've got little ones in tow. Food was great - had the Alaskan Crab Clusters and oysters. Service was warm and friendly.

Had a chance to visit this restaurant for a business dinner. The crab cakes with asparagus and mashed potatoes was delicious. I usually never eat all of my food, but this time I cleaned the plate.

We were in the area, visiting Nemours Mansion and decided to stop here for lunch. Nice selection on menu. Got shrimp, oysters, shrimp salad sandwich, and salads. All tasty and filling. Oh, and my daughter always likes a place where she can draw/color on the table!

Had a very enjoyable lunch at The Big Fish Grill today. The hostess greeted us promptly and seated us right away. The server was friendly and attentive. We choose from the fresh market fish list. Both the salmon and swordfish were cooked to perfection. The apple pecan dumpling a la mode was huge and delicious.

Lets see what was my favorite part of the meal. Waitress came over and asked as what we wanted to drink before we even sat down...There were 3 of us and we only got 2 menus. Asked the Waitress for another one and she forgot. Then she goes missing when we needed her. After we got our food she never... More

We stopped here on a trip down the Turnpike and 95, as a short detour for a good meal. The huge fish hanging from the ceiling and other themed decorations created a festive, fun environment. There is also a prominent bar area with the same bright theme. Service was friendly and accurate and the food was tasty and nicely prepared.... More
