You can never go wrong with Big Fish Grill. This is a place that we return to time and time again. My wife and I stopped in for dinner. The parking lot looked crowded but we were seated rather quickly and our orders taken. I had the Blackened Catfish while my wife ate the Balsamic Sea Bass. Both entrees were delicious and cooked to order. The staff is always friendly and professional.

We took my relatives from California and Pa here. The atmosphere on the river walk, the service and the food were great! Everyone loved their meal. They can accommodate a large group easily.

We come to Big Fish Grill for family birthdays. The atmosphere is lively and the decor takes you to a beachy-place even though you are in the city. Portions are quite large, but since they are so flavorful, left-overs are a great lunch for the next day!
Always had a good experience.

This right-on-the riverfront big bustling place also has great food. On a gorgeous summer night we sat for a very long time as groups,couples and families wandered in. Very nice cocktails, and a classy moment when the manager brought on on-the house cocktail to apologize for the wait for our drinks. Sweet and caring staff. And who could resist that full summer moon? By the way, desserts are very good and VERY huge.
