Big Fin Seafood Kitchen
Excellent food, casual environmentThis is the second time that I've been to the Big Fin. Food as always is great, good selection and presentation of oysters. Definitely try the swordfish filet mignon. The entre's name is no doubt tongue-in-cheek, however it aptly describes the cut of swordfish steak that you are presented with.6/13/2013 12:00:00 AMhappy birthdayWe came as a big family for my grandmother birthday. we had a wonderful time. the waiter was great(jon) he took great care of us... thanks6/11/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding food and great serviceWe went with the family to celebrate our daughter's bday. The food, the ambience, the wine, the service, all was great. I totally recommend this restaurant for seafood lovers like our family.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMGood food, bring your wallet!Of course this place is located in a very rich area. The menu ranges anywhere from $18 a plate to $125 for a plate that feeds two. When you visit a restaurant like this you'd normally go to have seafood you'd normally wouldn't find in most places. In this case you WILL pay for it. The food was delicious but again be prepared. If you go with a group make sure you don't volunteer to pay without reviewing the menu first. Drinks we're really expensive as well.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMFrom pre-meal cocktails toFrom pre-meal cocktails to decadent dessert this was an exceptional dinner. Perfect date night local6/3/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstandingCan't wait to return. 3 fantastic fish dishes, homemade chips a must as well.

The entree was fantastic in flavours!!
Portion was way too large, could barely eat half..... Maybe offer half portion of $38 entree for $24.... hate to see the waste.6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMA night outBig Fins was recommended to me and I would definitely recommend it to others. The food was well prepared, but maybe a bit too much of it. The portions were large so expect to leave full or with leftovers. We enjoyed the house chips with the parmasesn and oil, nice appetizer. The prices were a bit on the high end, probably due to portion size, but still acceptable for a special night.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMDeliciousFood was delicious. I specified it was my husband's bday and they said happy birthday right away to him and gave him free dessert. Thanks!5/28/2013 12:00:00 AMVery good food and service.Very good food and service.

IThe Best seafood in Orlando
I reccomend tempura lobster tail5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMThe service and food was veryThe service and food was very good- we went on a Sunday evening and they were fairly busy- there was a convention in town and some private parties but they were separate from the rest of the restaurant and our waiter was there quickly and told us about the menu and specials for the evening- we both felt rushed to order and felt like he was more concerned about getting another table to wait on- and get his tip.
Next time in Orlando will go to Moonfish and see what we heard about the two seafood competitors about 1/2 mile away from each other.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding!We had been in Florida and been very disappointed in the seafood we had eaten for the past two weeks. We looked online for a stand out restaurant and saw good reviews for Big Fin. We are pleased to say we were not disappointed in anyway. My husband and I shared a platter with shrimp, oysters and crab. It was absolutely delicious!5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food.....super fresh seafoodFood was great...pricey , but great. Swordfish "filet" was huge.5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Big Fin was a nice catchFor a Steak Lover the Big Fin was a pleasant surprise. Their grouper wasn't a t-bone but was well prepared and tasted great. My friend wanted Stone Crab and got their last of the season. We had very good service and will come back next time in Orlando.5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMAs close to perfect as it getsTook my wife and daughter for Mothers Day and they loved it! The menu was exceptional with something for everyone. It was a little pricy but I felt the meals met the price. The service was good never had to wait on anything and she was knowledgible of the food and menu.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMI love the total experienceI love the total experience at this Restaurant. I definitely would return to try it again. The service was fantastic and the waiter recommendations were on point. We had a Fabulous time.
.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMGrand ExperienceAlways a place to go for any occasion. Food, drinks, service and staff are excellent.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat ExperienceI have been to Big Fin one other time and it was fabulous. Came on a girls trip and none of the other ladies had been there. We had such a wonderful time and the food was fabulous! Jared, our server, was wonderful. We will definitely be back.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Seafood and staff!Our first time and what a find, came in from out of town and went to Big Fin for dinner. Our waiter, William J. was excellent and the food, outstanding. I have been eating Salmon for 30 + years and this was hands down the best. Can't wait to get back to Orlando and head to Big Fin!5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMBest seafood in OrlandoBig Fin has consistently the best, freshest seafood in Orlando. The selection is vast. One of the reasons this place remains consistent is because the owner/manager is always present and goes to each table to visit with the guests. This restaurant is a rare find in a an where chain restaurants are the norm.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was excellent but chowderFood was excellent but chowder was warm, could have been hotter, mashed were only luke warm on the outside of portion.
Entree's were hot and excellent.
Time to prepare the meal was a little long.
We will recommend and return at the firs opportunity.
CWF3rd4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMNice oysters, great crab legs,Nice oysters, great crab legs, crab claws were meh. Attentive wait staff. Not sure about overall value. A little pricey given all factors.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent local seafoodSimply one of the best seafood meals we have ever had. The alligator was amazingly tender. The crab crusted grouper was astounding New Orleans style as the waiter recommended with crawfish grits. Wow! The ahi tuna was perfect and not even a tiny bit of fat. Incredible locally owned restaurant and we appreciated the owner stopping by our table to check on us. I highly recommend eating here if you have a chance.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMFound this restaurant on OTFound this restaurant on OT while traveling in FL. It was a very pleasant place in a cool area (Dellagio). The atmosphere was a really nice blend of casual in a first class restaurant. Everyone really enjoyed everything they ordered and we forced ourselves to pack in a couple of the excellent desserts. This place is perfect especially if you want to get away from the big name chain restaurants.4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMGood all around.Food was astounding, from the Tritons Delight (a lighter portion meal but full of flavor and left me satisfied) to the Mahi Mahi, Scallops and steak. For a seafood restaurant, this steak was easily in the top 5 best restaurant steaks I have had. The waiter, Lawrence, was attentive, jovial, and generally nice guy with a sense of humor. We sat in the side room with the lower ceilings and darker lighting, which was nice despite the quite loud noise level. 80% of which were from young children talking about their day at Disney. It was about 8:30 when we were seated (we had reservations for 9 but there was an open spot and where seated immediately.) Excellent experience, hopefully we can come back on a less loud night. It was a Saturday.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMGood food and the waiter wasGood food and the waiter was great. Awesome Martini's.4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMWe visited with our sons whileWe visited with our sons while in Orlando for spring break. Food was pricey but delicious!3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMOkay food, nice ambienceOur family of four ate here while on vacation. We picked this restaurant from the excellent reviews on several sites. The food was just okay. We have had better seafood elsewhere. The sushi entree was really marginal. The nori and mesclun mix were chewy and tasted old. The salmon was a bit mealy. The chopped seafood salad was mostly lettuce and had what appeared to be a processed bottle dressing. The best entree was the clams and mussels with white sauce. The key lime pie was good, as was the ice cream cookie sandwich. The service was friendly and attentive. I would have liked to try some of the house specialities. Maybe another time...3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful selection of seafood.....Wonderful selection of seafood......we had an enjoyable meal.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMThe service was great, ourThe service was great, our waiter Dali was excellent, he went over the menu with us, and kept checking in with us to make sure everything was okay. The food was delicious, I can't wait to go back!3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing grouper!! FirstAmazing grouper!! First time visit and will be going back again.3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMThe selections of seafoodThe selections of seafood are outstanding. It would be more helpful if the specials/drink menu was available to each diner, rather than one per table. With so many choices having that menu in hand is important. The service was wonderful and accommodating. We will go back to try other menu options. While we didn't have oysters this visit we had them on a previous visit. I consier this my go-to place for oysters in Orlando.3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat experience! The waitGreat experience! The wait staff is excellent and the food was great!3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding food and our waiterOutstanding food and our waiter was a complete southern gentlemen. Would highly recommend the place. Only down fall really was noise level. Maybe rugs and heavy curtains, its just that it does take away a little3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMWent for my wife's and myWent for my wife's and my anniversary and had a great time. Wait staff new it was our anniversary and took excellent care of us. I have eaten here many times, but it was the first time my wife had been to Big Fin. The food and service was perfect, and we had a terrific evening.3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMSimply the BestA colleague told me about the Big Fin and described it as the best seafood meal of his life. Being a food snob, I decided to check it out myself. Quite simply, Big Fin is the finest seafood restaurant I have ever visited...and I thought nothing could exceed Mommas on Maui. I loved the casual yet elegant atmosphere. The fare is simply the freshest and finest quality cuts. I haven't seen King Crab legs of this quality since my last trip to Alaska. The swordfish steak made me realize that I have never truly eaten swordfish. Bobby Moore, the owner, came to our table personally to see that everything was perfect. It was. What an experience. Made my trip to Orlando a memorable one.3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat seafood excellent serviceGreat restaurant, food is excellent and the servers are always top notch. Swordfish filet is amazing and if you get a chance to get stone crab claws.. Do it! They have an amazing mustard sauce for the crab and the presentation of the food is spot on every time, highly recommended3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMBig Fin Restaurant a Big Hit!This was a our first time to this establishment. We had read previous reviews and they were spot on. Our appetizer, the calamari was the best we had ever had and the dipping sauce, a chili-Thai sauce was a nice surprise. The swordfish filet was amazing, never had a portion that large and flavorful without being overpowered by seasoning and spice. The popcorn shrimp had an amazing coating, more tempura-like. The grouper with lump crab meat, a house specialty and favorite, was some of the best grouper I had ever had.
The attentive staff made this visit personable and fun. It has definitely made our top 10 all time favorite restaurants. Can't wait to return to Central Florida and try it again on our next trip.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMGood stuffStone crabs & fresh fish both excellent. Best deal on stone crabs was the 1lb for $32.
Deep drinks, great service, but certainly not inexpensive
Stone crabs rival Joe's!3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat variety of food choicesGreat variety of food choices and the ones that we had were excellent!! Will definitely be going back.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMFish a bit overcooked butFish a bit overcooked but not so much that it still wasn't good.3/14/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful seafood restaurant!The waiter was attentive and knowledgable. The food was delicious. They were very understanding about holding our table when we were late in a very full, busy restaurant. I would return if given a chance.3/13/2013 12:00:00 AMWe have been to Big Fin restaurantWe have been to Big Fin restaurant each Spring Break for the last three years. We think it is the best restaurant in Orlando. We have teenage daughters and friends and we all love it and especially Lobster Mac. It is superb!3/12/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was the best seafoodThis was the best seafood place ever. Very pricy, great service.
Would highly recommend.3/7/2013 12:00:00 AMA very good experienceGreat food and service. Clients loved it and thought it a treat. Had stone crabs, grilled oysters (were very small) amazing grouper with lump crab and surf and turf. Would definitely return.3/5/2013 12:00:00 AMGive it a Try!Great selection of Seafood and sushi. Very nice presentation on plates. Perfect amount of seasonings, no salt or pepper needed. Server did a great job of attending to us with out over or under attending.3/2/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was great! The steamedThe food was great! The steamed crab legs were not overcooked and the scallops were huge. I will say the steak was well seasoned with a pepper kick, which I liked but might be too spicey for others. Service was prompt!
Can't wait to go back. It's nice to get seafood that tastes fresh.3/2/2013 12:00:00 AMI went to this restaurantI went to this restaurant with a group of girlfriends. The food was very good and the wine selection by the glass was respectable. The waitstaff were friendly and efficient. The grilled oysters were a favorite. The blue crab dusted grouper and the salmon Rockefeller were also well-prepared and very tasty. I rated this one 4 stars because, while it is very good, for the price you pay, it should be outstanding! If in the area again, I would be somewhat likely to return to this restaurant.2/27/2013 12:00:00 AMBig Fin FunI love going to this restaurant. There are a lot of different food choices although the focus is Seafood. I have tried several different dishes and everything is always delicious. It is the perfect Florida restaurant. Last time we went we sat outside on the patio. It was a wonderful dining experience.2/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
