We love the Big Fish Grill! You usually have to wait for a seat because lots of other people love it, too! Food is delicious, fresh seafood and friendly service! If we are in Rehoboth Beach, DE, we are at Big Fish Grill:)

We have been enjoying Big Fish since it opened - 15 years ago? Not sure but a long time. Best fish, best service, best everything. Happy hour is discounted drink and selected food items. Long wait time but worth it.More
