Finished museum tour in Washington DC late lunch at Big Fish Grille. It was all good! Great food, great service, and great prices. They had to put us out. We enjoyed the meal and time spent.

I always enjoy going to this resturant. The drinks are two for one during happy hour. The appertizers are reduce price. You can really get you eat and drinkl on at Big Fish. I would recommend that you try it just once and you will be hooked on Big Fish. No pun intended.

Our family was looking for something different. We had a great server, Christopher, who explained everything and recommended great entrees. Would definitely go again.

The Hostess was wonderful, squeezed us in rather then make us wait an hour (we were a party of 5 be dinner time).... More

This was not my first visit to big fish but I had not been in a few years and decided to go and grab a bite. We were seated quickly however, the manager forgot to let our server know that we were there. Needless to say, we weren't even greeted by our waitress until after sitting for 15minutes. After finally... More

The only reason I'm giving this place 2 stars is because the crab soup was pretty good and my sons chicken tenders were flames. I didn't know what to expect going into this place. I always see this place while traveling on Route 3. The service was ok, the waitress didn't seem to know what to suggest to us when... More

I have had brunch at this restaurant several times. I would continue to go if the group I am with chooses this restaurant. Decent MD seafood. Plenty of parking is available.
