Good selection of seafood. Prepared well. Pleasant service. Will definitely go again.
Food, service, and prices were great!
I've been here several times. This time I went during the lunch hour and service was great, food came out quickly. I had soy glazed grilled scallops this visit that were cooked perfectly. I've also had the fish tacos and crab cakes which are also good.
Food was delicious. Service was great. Justin was very accommodating. Place was clean. They even had mouthwash in the restrooms. I'll go back soon.
Great food , very attentive server dangelo gets two thumbs ☝
Lauren was attentive and patient; Bryce could not have been more personable and helpful. The bruschetta is great; we all had different fish dinners (enjoyable) except one and she said the chicken breasts were done perfectly. The bartenders made good drinks and the evening was a success.
We gave our name and # and sat by the river waiting for a text-we were seated outside in less time than said. Food was great, service was pleasant and prompt. Our family of 4 is always satisfied.
Nice dinner out with my better half. The food was good.
Most probably one of the best experience ....Extremely knowledgeable staff super friendly , great job! The crab cake and coffee was so delicious.. Will be back soon.
My experience at Big Fish is nothing to write about because the food was tasteless and didn't like it. Done !!! .
Loved the "clean" style food. Friendly people
Great food, great locatio , even better service. Highly recommended if you want to have fresh and tasty seafood.
Plenty parking available. Rapid greeting of arriving parties. The outdoors eating area is pleasant and the waterway attractions can be unusual. The bar and dining combo makes for a more pleasant seating all around. Some of my party was as interested in watching the various ballgames as they were to eat. The menu is filled with a variety of seafood offerings and meat staples. The wait staff were energetic, humorous, pleasant and helpful with food selections. Take advantage of the IN DINING REWARDS program. The white fish table appetizer is outstanding just a little to small if you have to share. It is good.....Big Fish is recommended to surpass the fill.
The Big Fish Grill is a very nice restaurant of the the waterfront in Wilmington. The food is excellent with great service. Our waiter Jesse was a great host, answered a y questions I had about the menu. I also went with his food suggestions.
One of the finest place i ever visit. Interior was very beautiful .Food was just awesome . All staff was very friendly.
Delicious meal. Awesome service. Fun party
Great scampi and fresh fish. Went on Wednesday when the lobster specials were available; decent prices for great meal. Save room for dessert. The peanut butter pie is to die for!
Everything was delicious. Portions were just right. Nothing extra to take home. Prices were great too.
Great place! Food and service were great! Would definitely visit again if we're in the area
The wasabi pea encrusted yellow fish tuna was amazing. I would love to come here again.
Excellent food and service. The scallops are amazing... Very well cooked. The blackened catfish is very delicious and the orzo is an excellent choice. Everything we ordered was fantastic including the sides and the smoked tuna starter. Highly recommend it. Leave room for dessert as both the key lime pie and bread pudding were excellent.
My first time seeing a "GUESTS EAT AT THEIR OWN RISK" disclaimer on a restaurant menu. Not something that fills me with confidence. If you have food allergies or other dietary restrictions, I suggest going to nearby Iron Hill instead.
Coming back from Maryland and were from Florida and we know our seafood. It was delishous. Gotten the scallops with the fried rice and I highly recommend it! It's a little pricey so recommend looking on the online menu before coming in.
food was amazing, younger waiters/waitresses but all very knowledgeable alil more pricey but 100% worth it
Awesome food, price and service with a smile! Great place, i will return soon.
Great food with friendly service and a comprehensive menu.
Solid seafood and sushi. I was impressed. the selection doesn't have steamer pots or AYCE crabs but don't let that deter you as there are always plenty of fish in the sea to try. The atmosphere is fun and perfect for family events . The servers were knowledgeable and very efficient with time. Stop by grab a drink and dig in.
Really enjoyed our meal, the atmosphere and service! The calamari wasn't as good as I thought it would be, where are the tenticles?
Great seafood! Right on the riverfront
Waitress was wonderful & so helpful. Food was fantastic!
Five star food at three star prices! Many compliments to the chef! The food could easily be sold at an upscale restaurant! I had fried flounder which was excellent! It wasn’t greasy and it had a uniqueness to it that made it unlike any fried fish I’ve ever had. My wife and I love all kinds of tea so we really appreciated their selection of herbal tea as well! I think we made it there at the beginning of the dinner rush because despite it being a Friday night and packed we were seated immediately. Fast, friendly and attentive service! The food came out quick even with being as busy as they were. The atmosphere has somewhat of a chain feeling but with a uniqueness of it’s own. Our only complaint was that it was very noisy! Most of the dining area is one big open space, with the exception of a separate area for large parties. We lucked out by getting one of, if not the only fully enclosed booths. The noise level did drop a little over the time we were there as the dinner rush got their food and started eating instead of chatting. This was our first time there but we will definitely be going there again for the food and service!
I love the Big Fish Grill! Everytime I go the food is very good and fresh. The servers are friendly and attentive. Overall a very pleasant experience. Nice for a family dinner, and maybe a date although it can get pretty loud so it's sometimes hard to hear.
Really good food... its always a pleasure eating here with my friends and family!
Excellent place. Happy hour food. Variety of different kind of delicious food are available over here. You would not regret.
The soft-shell crab was crunchy and delicious. We also had the sea bass. It was thick cut and cooked nicely.
Atmosphere is fun...feels like you are in an aquarium. Food is great! I had the crab cakes...crisp on the outside, perfectly moist on the inside. Wait staff was awesome... We had a big group in the party room, and Jackie took care of us with all smiles.
Always dine here when we crave fresh fish!! Casual, they know how to treat customers, and serve up the best quality seafood in a casual and fun setting.
Always fresh and delicious sea food with exceptional service!
I visited this place with a large group of people and I ate off of everybody plate..lol. Everything was delicious!!! A+ service as well and I even saw a wedding proposal or two:-)
Great meal and ambience! Lovely decor inside and great patio seating outside with a view of the river. For lunch, HIGHLY recommend the black n' blue swordfish sandwich with their house french fries. Will definitely return.
Service and food were great. Crab cakes were a little too wet with mayo and could use more crisp in cooking. Nice beer selection. Large place with ample parking. Large portions.
Came here as a recommendation from a friend. Great atmosphere, friendly staff. Food came out accurate and in a quick fashion. Portions were great, and the meal was more than satisfying. Left satiated, and happy! Definitely recommend!
Good food but it comes out to hot to eat.
The crab bisque soup was excellent. Also the grilled scallops were really sweet.
Great place for lunch! The tuna appetizer is delicious and the key lime pie is the best! Nice atmosphere, creative presentation and unique menu with good variety. Ample seating is a plus - we had no wait during busy lunch rush near the holidays. I recommend Big Fish Grill and will definitely be back.
Great ambiance. Excellent meal. Wonderful service. Fresh fish galore! Real gluten-free options. Service from Lauren was informative & top-notch.
All our food was absolutely amazing. Staff was accommodating. The wait was a bit long but it was definitely worth it for the great meal we had.
The food was FANTASTIC. Unique combinations (I got carmelized salmon and rice over crab cake asparagus rissoto. Omg. Yummmmmm
Its gorgeous I side. The seating arrangements are phenomenal. Service was great and food wasn't bad either.
Service was awesome and food was delicious! Scallops cooked to perfection.
Happy Hour was great. Oysters were not the best
Good lunch and dinner spot. Been twice and enjoyed the customer service and friendly environment. Bread pudding was good and really enjoyed the flounder, too.
I went here as I wanted a change from market street . Amazing amount of choice and they have different offers every night . Tuesday night was 5 dollar wine night . I had the crab cake , it was beautifully cooked with a choice of two sides . I explored the boardwalk a little , I’ll be back ! Great choice for a solo traveller away on business like myself. My friend asked about lobster rolls. Although it’s not on the menu, they do serve them. Hers was delicious. I don’t recall what I ordered. Our server was wonderful.
Great seafood restaurant by the riverfront in Wilmington! Friendly staff and good atmosphere! Food was good and you have a lot of options for seafood. Great place for family and friends. You can draw and write on the table cloth! Recommend if you are in the area
Some food was overcooked, some downright bad tasting. Overall unremarkable place with the most outstanding feature the fact that it was so loud I could not hear my companions when they talked.
Was very busy but, service was still fairly quick. Food is always delicious and bisque soups are awesome.
Always delicious. Can't beat buck a shuck Thursday nights. The fried oysters are perfect. Service can be a tiny bit slow sometimes, but that's okay. Enjoy the view. Relax.
Always Great service and Best food in the area!
Great atmosphere! Delicious food! And an attentive server! Definitely going back!
The food was excellent. The staff were very fast and curtious . Great job.
Food is great the service is so so. I am surprised there are no real crab options. The atmosphere is awesome love the decor. I would recommend people give it a try.
Appetizer was cold, not what I expected. Expensive, with low attention to quality. Disappointed.
I really love the food and atmosphere. The servers are always nice.
Food over all is great quality and full flavored. The crab cake and mussels were my favorite. The garlic wine sauce for the mussels is to die for. Lively decorated but not tacky. Good family dining spot.
A little pricey, especially considering the area. Dishes were a little bit of a miss and derivative or poorly executed, as well. Despite its proximity, it also fails to have any good views.
Food was delicious I had the sirloin and shrimp , very flavorful. Atmosphere was nice and family friendly!
A really good atmosphere to be out with friends and family! And the food was really good
The New England style fish and chips is absolutely one of my favorite guilty pleasures the fried shrimp are pretty good too and always cooked to perfection....Wilmington, De location
Been to the Fish a dozen times 4,5 stars every time
HANDS DOWN ONE OF THE BEAT RESTAURANTS IN WILMINGTON. I’VE BEEN COMING HERE FOR YEARS. THE DISHES ARE ALWAYS FRESH AND MADE TO ORDER. THE MEALS ARE PLENTIFUL AND DELICIOUS. THE STEAK MEDALLIONS, THE SEAFOOD PASTA WITH LOBSTER SAUCE , SHRIMP SCAMPI GARLIC BREAD!!!! MY FAVORITE IS THE PRINCE EDWARD ISLAND MUSSELS. THE MANAGER BOB IS THE BEST. IF AN ISSUE ARISES HE HANDLES IT PROMPTLY. THE PLACE IS NICE CLEAN COOL IN THESE SUMMER DAYS. YOU CAN DINE OUTSIDE IF YOU’D LIKE. THE BEAUTIFUL EMPLOYEES WILL LET YOU KNOW.
My go to place for fish, on this particular occasion we found ourselves waiting for a little while. It was early evening dinner rush, so I guess that's normal. The food is fresh as always and there is a nice family feeling to the dining experience. If you have not tried it yet, please do so; you'll be glad that you did.
Best seafood restaurant I've been to in a long time. Good drinks. Great service.
This place was amazing!!!! this is my idea of good quality food, excellent customer service and amazing ambiance!!! i wish all restaurants took this much pride in their establishments
Enjoyed the food so much. All was great, excellent fish restaurant experience.
Food was very good. Nice area with a nice view.
Delicious!!! Atmosphere is great and food and drinks are too. Had a large party and everyone was pleased with their meals.. Recommend the combo meal: scallops, shrimp, tenderloin and crab. cakes!!!!
Absolutely delicious with a beautiful view on the river. Eat outside! Edit: so for my second time at Big Fish, we reserved a room as we had 25 family members, and we had an amazing time. I got to taste even more dishes, every single one tastier and tastier. It was a special and emotional event for the family and we couldn't have chosen a better place. We clapped for our 2 waiters at the end. Special mention : warm pecan pie cobbler and cinnamon ice cream, the killing blow.
First time dining here tonight, when we arrived and it was really busy. Although the expected wait time was 45 mins to an hour we were seated in about 25 minutes. The waitress Marlene was awesome and checked on us often along with other servers walking by. The food was AMAZING, portions were healthy and unlike many other places everything was seasoned. Will definitely be coming back with my family soon.
This place was a wonderful experience! From the food to the staff and the ambience as well. must visit restaurant.
Great food and great drinks. I've been there several times, and have never been disappointed. I enjoy seating inside and outside the restaurant. The servers are friendly and do their job well. I've had group get togethers there, family celebrations, and just hanging with good friends there. I've had bad experiences at other places on the Riverfront, but Big Fish is not one of them. I'd recommend them to anyone.
For the seafood lovers this place is high quality and fresh is what drives this place to excellence. Service is good most times, some lag from the bar but nothing too extensive. Reservations are recommended if possible.
Holy only was thus place good. The chef knows what he's doing. Serving size was spot on. Not big but not small either. Of course after tasting it I could of had twice as much. Yumm. I had a pregnant bartender as my waitress and she was fabulous. On the ball, checked on substitutions, drinks quick and other wait staff jumped into help instead of being ones table only.
The catfish was delicious and very fresh! The service was great and the ambience was casual and inviting with high ceilings.
Delicious food and drinks! Awesome atmosphere indoors and outdoors!
Took my husband here on fathers day. Food was amazing, we had fried shrimp, crab cake & shrimp tortellini pasta in blush sauce & a maryland style crab cake with rice and veggies. everything was excellent - 0 complaints. Fast service and the hot sauce was awesome it has a sweet taste to it I had it with every bite - need it for at home lol. So recommend this place and we drove out from PA.
I enjoy the Big Fish Grill at any time, but the Thanksgiving buffet that we attended was special. We could not get a reservation, so we that at the bar. It was the best buffet style meal that I have had in 40 years. If you like seafood, a Big Fish buffet belongs on your must do list.
Go for the happy hour and sit on the deck. Tasty small plates and great drink specials.
Great location. The stakes were amazing. The restaurant has a pretty good service. The calamari were very fresh and the sauces were great too. the place close taking orders from 9 pm but no hurries if you are finishing your meal. They have a nice outside area to set and eat while enjoying the river view.
I can't decide what to brag on first, the service or the food. Peyton provided exceptional service throughout our visit. The seafood was really fresh and we'll prepared. The presentation was great as well. Thinking about making more trips to Wilmington from Pennsylvania for this wonderful experience. We sat outside and enjoyed the ambience as well.
Absolutely delicious. The brucetta is amazing.
Excellent seafood at reasonable prices. Portions were generous. Seafood for all four of us was very fresh. Service was timely. All around great experience. Only a couple of blocks off of I95, so it is a great place to stop when traveling up and down the coast.
found this off 95 and what a find! great seafood, chill atmosphere, attentive friendly service. we'll be back!
Must admit, not the best meal we've had at this restaurant. I had burbon shrimp and my fiancee had the tilapia sandwich. We both felt the meals did not meet the expectations of previous dinners here. Especially for the price! Unfortunately, we agree that it will be a while before we return.
Good food, modest prices, good service.
One of the best places in Delaware. We’ve eaten here at least once a week (Lobster Wednesdays usually) since they opened and have never been disappointed! Service, food, atmosphere; it’s ALWAYS remarkable! Love the new sushi menu btw!
I would consider this the best restaurant on the Riverfront right now. I take 5-8 colleagues here on a weekly basis, and even as a Floridian can say the seafood consistency is good. And in a town where hospitality service is so bad...this place does a good job.
Staff is very friendly. Our waiter was awesome. I don't recall his name but he was very friendly. Their food is also really good. I would definitely come back if I'm ever in the area again.
Started off the evening with the Pomegranate salad. Loved it! Hope it stays on the menu for awhile. Interesting mix of arugula & another lettuce with slivers of apple & cheese. The pomegranate dressing takes this over the top. I also tried the tortellini with shrimp & crab cake. This is a hit too. Tortellini size was just right so I felt full, not overstuffed; the sauce was not heavy, a well-thought combination.
Food was great. Quick pleasant service. We will go again.
Typical seafood place. The locals recommend it and there are awards on the walls. Food was pretty good but nothing about my experience really stood out aside from the lively - albeit loud - atmosphere.
Food was excellent the broiled seafood including the scallops are done just right will a proper sear. Unfortunately the menus we we're handed we're dirty and dripping with some red stuff ( maybe cocktail sauce?) that I got all over my hands. No one offered to give us a handy wipe or any type of cleaning material for our hands. plus we had to ask for additional menus several times to replace the dirty ones. So while the food was good the service could have been better.
We did an early Valentine's day dinner. Staff was great, food was great, huge selection of a wide range of seafood and fish. Also enough land lubber choices to keep everyone happy. Dessert was super as well.
Sea food was excellent. They had a different spin on jambalaya
Environment was excellent. Love the bar area and many fish hanging from the ceiling. Food selection included 2 menus filled with awesome dishes. Well reccommended.
This establishment is a very nice spot to eat. Just a few minor things that they need to work on. They forgot to bring out a few of our food/drink items. They forgot to add the ice cream fir my chocolate cake. Our server Jackie went and put in a request for the ice cream but I never got it. They also charged us twice for a shot of patron when we only had 1 shot. Please make sure to go over your bill before paying. I didn't realize the mistake until I asked my husband for the bill(he had already paid it). The food was delicious. I had a side of Peruvian rice(very small portion). The calamari was absolutely yummy. Tge chocolate cake was the best ever. It was very moist, rich and delicious. My husband had the lump crab with Peruvian rice, garlic bread and asparagus. I tasted his crab cake and it was soooo yummy. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.
We had shrimp and lobster linguini, steak and shrimp, and jumbo shrimp with Jasmine rice and fingerling potatoes.. the sauce that came with it tasted similar to Asian zing from Buffalo wild wings which I loved.. the kids has spaghetti with a meat ball and crab cakes. Everyone liked their food. The server was nice although not always around. I would come back if I lived here... every thing was really good. They give you some type of fish dip with crackers for an appetizer it was ok.. if you like tuna with mayo or tartar sauce you will like it.
Hands down the best lobster I’ve had on the riverfront in Wilmington,DE. They have other food items , but the lobster is my favorite from here!
Sat on the patio. Food was very good. Nice Sunday pm
Good seafood but I find the decor a little tacky
So good we went twice in 4 days.
Food is great. Fresh seafood and well poured drinks.
Amazing service, delicious Food, prices very affordable. Highly recommended
Great food, great service, great atmosphere. Jackie was our server and she was so kind. It was our first time there and everyone made us feel so welcome. Prices are reasonable. We'll definitely be back.
Service was exceptional. We had a party of seven. Nate was our server. Food pricey but well worth it as every bite was amazing!! Great atmosphere. Love this place❤
Great seafood, great selection. I do not recommend the Mojitos, they taste like seltzer water, but the other drinks were buzz worthy.
This place has great happy hour wings and consistently awesome service.
Very good.. however i would've liked more seasoning on my Halibut. I'll definitely go back
I wasn't pleased that much! Asked for lemon for my water never got and asked for more sauce never got. Very clean restaurant even the bathroom.
Good food. Great service. Great atmosphere.
Went here for my first visit for a birthday celebration, staff was wonderful and helpful with the menu. Giving recommendations. Staff regularly walked by clearing the table of plates that we weren't being used anymore. Will be back. Great place to have a date night.
Very Delicious food. Best seafood spot in Delaware.
The lobster was amazing!!! The crab cakes were so good too. They steamed the broccoli just right. Service was excellent, a very friendly waiter.
Amazingly fast service and great atmosphere/staff.
Love this place! The food and drinks never disappoint. It's a little pricey but is totally worth it. Even during happy hour, the staff is attentive and works as a team to ensure each table is taken care of.
The food is really good, the place is beautiful, perfect services they have variety of seafood fishes lobsters crabs side dishes and we got seated right away. The view is amazing.
What a great place. The food is awesome!!!
Really good service. Food was great. I'd definitely pay them another visit.
The food is always fresh and tasty. The service is always thoughtful, quick, courteous, and accurate. Our drinks and other food always get to us quickly. They always cook the fish as directed whether it be to bake, grill etc. They have fantastic soup and salad. I have been very impressed nearly every time I got here.
Unexpected great food and service. Very reasonable price for the quality.
We had 20 people, the food we wonderful, service was prompt and effective and we had a great time.
Highly recommend this seafood place in Delaware near I-95
Meal was good! We had a large party of 14 people and they were very accommodating.
Clean & Waitresses & Waiters Pleasantly Kind & Food Was Good & The White Smoked Fish Dip Was Excellent !
I cannot wait to patronize this establishment again. Menu was astonishing and the service was on it. As a seafood lover, foodie - connoisseur...I was delighted with the freshness brought to the table as well as presentation. ( Clams, oysters, lobster, shrimp...) A great date night spot or with friends.
Ate here a few times before after work for apps. Came here for dinner, but was disappointed with the meal. Atmosphere and service was great, but the Maryland Crab Imperial & Asparagus Lobster/Filet Mignon entrees were a disappointment. No flavor and light and the serving size. Turns out they no longer serve crab legs to avoid competition with Joe's Crab Shack down the strip! Huh?!?! Might be a minute before we make this trip again.
We got there as they opened and sat at the booths near the bar. The server came over and being completely lukewarm; never gave her name or smiled. She took our order but never came back unless I motioned for her. Yet an older couple next to us received extra attention. She passed my table 3 x to get to them and never stopped by to ask if we were alright or if we needed anything. I won't spend my money with them anymore and I tipped her at 20% of the tab (was just lunch).
the L.I. blue point oysters were briny, fresh and melty. just perfect with a silver tequila on ice. blackened salmon was perfectly cooked, not overdone and well seasoned. lightly sauteed spinach and Neva’s Potatoes which are cheesy shredded potato baked in a small casserole dish which i totally recommend. finally, i went w/ the pecan & apple cobbler served warm with cinnamon ice cream. are you kidding me? two adults with drinks, appy & dessert - $75. i'll be back
The fish was excellent and it's a good value for the quality and freshness. Sides were great too! I've had two excellent experiences here: I highly recommend dining with them. It's big and nice inside and there's excellent outdoor seating in the summer too.
