We drive 1 1/2 hrs just for their burgers, service is excellent, fast & very friendly. Prices are great, especially now adays. Our local restaurants don't hold a candle to Big Fish, totally worth the drive!

We stopped for a burger and a beer. The service was excellent and the food was great! The bonus was the value of the meal, lots of food for the money. Worth a stop!

We were passing through the area and wanted some dinner to our journey through the National Parks. We stopped in and got fed like kings and queens and the service was very friendly, the prices were fair, and the food was tasty. Thumbs Up !!

We ate at the Big Fish often. The food was always consistent and the service was awesome. Whenever we headed to Panguitch Lake we made sure to stop in and eat. The place can get packed quickly, but we never had a long wait.

I'm utterly puzzled over the very good reviews that Big Fish has gotten from other customers. For our takeout meal, we ordered a blue burger, which was dry but edible, and fried shrimp, which were served with colder-than-room-temperature soggy seasoned french fries. The service was...friendly and excellent. At the time we placed our order, we were told that it would take 40-50 minutes to get our food. 44 minutes later, just as promised, it was delivered. Sadly, it was far from worth the wait.More

My grilled chicken sandwich was very tasty, but the real star here is the fried cheese curds. If you haven't had them, get them. Absolutely delicious dipped in ranch, and a very generous portion. We also loved the little mashed potato bites that had cheese...and jalapenos in them. Our waitress was great too. Younger lady, very friendly and always there to refill water, etc. Great little restaurant for a quick bite.More

After reading others' reviews, I am wondering if the usual cook had the night off when we visited Big Fish. There were few options at the salad bar, there was no garnish on our dinner plates, and both of our entrees appeared pre-fab. I did...appreciate the distance between tables, and it was quaint, being invited to sing the birthday song to a diner at another table.More

This was the only place where they distanced tables…. Many patrons wore masks, and few were drinking beer. Lots of locals enjoying themselves on Saturday night wearing serious cowboy hats…. You can’t take them off indoors? Our server was overworked but pleasant. Beer was cold...and local….. and just ok. Burgers were okay and rings were huge and filling. We couldn’t even finish the rings….. the ice cream was tasty and curiously inexpensive at $2 for two small scoops? Definitely a family restaurant so we left a generous tip!More

What a treat, not fancy or up scale. Menu basic, food was amazingly good. Try the rings, some of the best I’ve ever had. Servers were on top of things and worked hard. Food was just right size and priced favorably.

The burgers here are served to perfection. Lots of good ole greasy fried foods. Great place to brings the kids as it’s a very relaxed atmosphere and lots of fun board games available to play. Our server, Tracee, was friendly and excellent!

We recently visited the small town of Panguitch, UT and searched out the small restaurant of Big Fish recommended by many reviewers. It’s a small mom and pop restaurant with a small but varied menu - fish, burgers, chicken, salads, etc. We arrived about 5:00...pm - several tables were open (by the time we left - the place was full - every table taken) The service was kinda slow, but we weren’t in a hurry. Food was good - I had the chicken tenders - others had burgers and fish. No complaints from anyone ! Prices were good also ! I’d give the Big Fish a 4 - when in the Panguitch area, try out the Big Fish Restaurant - you’ll like it !More

The burgers were so good that we were in tears. In a blissful moment of pure nirvana, I told the waitress I wanted to adopt the cook who made my burger and take him home with me. My husband was silent but tears were running...down his face in pure harmony with his burger. I got the bacon cheeseburger with fries. My husband got the bleu burger with cheese bombs. As an appetizer, we got the cheese curbs.More
