To look at it you'd never think this strip-mall locale would house such a splendid restaurant, but looks in this case are definitely deceiving. Big Fish is a surprise to the palate and the pocketbook. Their sophisticated, yet understated decor is calming and creates the...More

A bit over-priced, but delicious and exotic Thai food. We had a wonderful waitress and the atmosphere was very nice. The stir fry was very yummy and my boyfriend enjoyed his sushi. Open late.

Great place to eat! They probably have the best selection of fresh fish in the Orange Beach/Gulf Shores area. The server was also very knowledgeable in the different types of fish.

We were sent here by the guys at J&M tackle. We couldn't have been more pleased! Food was fantastic as was the service and atmosphere. That fact that they have the smallest kitchen on the island and serve so many while maintaining the quality is...More

They have a great menu, good ambiance, and excellent service. They were busy but we were served in a very efficient manner. Everyone really enjoyed their meal.

My companion and I went out looking for a spot that was not your typical beach-tourist trap. Big Fish fits the bill in that respect. Although in a strip mall, once inside it it nicely decorated and you quickly forget where you are. We started...More

The outside of the restaurant is deceptive of how nice it is inside. It is certainly one of the best restaurants in the Gulf Shores area.

Hi there--We have been in this same location since we opened in Jan.2010.
We are spending spring break in orange beach (third year in a row) and haven't tried Big Fish yet. Is it ok for kids? We have a 13, 8 & 4 year old.

I think it is fine for kids. Not sure it they have a kids menu or not. It is a little more dressy than a lot of places down there but still kid friendly. Enjoy😊
