My family and I went here during Magical dining month and apparently we shouldn't made our reservation fir 9pm. I wouldn't recommend the Ceasar salad as it was bland & served room temperature. I also don't recommend ordering your steak well done but rather medium well. The shrimp new orleans was good, however not impressed with the grits. Overall, it was ok.

Big Fin is by far the best value for Orlando's magical dining month. I would certainly recommend it to a friend.

Visited Big Fin for the first time during Magical Dining month and it was AMAZING! Our server, Brian, was a great host and made sure we had everything we needed. The Surf & Turf was fantastic and the desserts were delicious! We will most definitely recommend this spot for great seafood.

The food was fantastic. Several members of our party had the swordfish filet and we all agreed it was some of the best swordfish we had.

This was our 4th time eating here. Our server wasn’t very attentive and didn’t do well serving us. At first we thought because it was magical dining. But we’ve done MD here the other times as well and have had impeccable service. Hopefully it was just this one time and won’t ever happen again. The food was amazing as usual and didn’t disappoint.

Food was good but service could have been better, seemed a bit chaotic and we expected more from a restaurant of that caliber.

I've been to Big fin several times and always had a pleasant experience even on busy nights. The first thing I noticed was that ALL of the African Americans and the Hispanics were all grouped in the back of the restaurant. Now normally this wouldn't be something that's noticeable but when other tables noticed it as well I didn't think I was crazy for thinking the samething. We even had a conversation with the other tables about this. My mother (who is a loyalty member at the restaurant and didn't make the reservations) called to speak to the OWNER and was basically told that she was crazy for thinking such a thing. He preceded to explain that the open table app picks the tables for them etc. But if you Google the open table app you can clearly see that this is an issue that's very well known across the board. The app groups you according to your social media, race and how much money you've spent at the restaurant previously. I think that is ridiculous. My thing is as the OWNER why lie about it? If you're a minority please pay attention to how they seat you at this restuarant.

The food was OK. I had to shrimp and grits and the grits were lukewarm.
The waiter was disconnected and had a dry sense of humor. It was my birthday and he mentioned it and didn't do the birthday desert or anything like he did for the table next to us which I thought was weird. I will NEVER go back here to celebrate anything again. My night was ruined.

Great experience was tainted by a couple meals getting mixed up. The person who took the orders did not serve them which may have contributed to the problem.

Food and service was excellent. Portions were gigantic and delicious. I had the Crab Crusted Corvina and my wife had the Shrimp Orleans which were part of the Magical Dining menu. Both were excellent. She brought enough leftovers for another meal. Our server was very personable and on the spot with everything. We will be returning next time we’re in Orlando.

Fantastic food and service. My only complaint is that the restaurant is a bit loud so not good if you want a romantic dinner for 2. LOL.

from the arrival at the complimentary valet to the host seating me at the table was outstanding. Casey my server was very attentatitve, very professional and recommended a few things as I wasn't quite sure what to order. I went for magical dining experience. Was a very great meal, food was outstanding, the popcorn shrimp and the lobster and filet were very flavorful and exceptional. The asparagus and mashed were done to perfection too. The ooey goey cake was to die for. All of it was. Talked and thanked the Manager also. Was a great time. Thank you.

This restaurant is a must visit dinner spot every time we come to Orlando. The seafood is so fresh and always prepared to perfection. Service is always impeccable. It is a little loud in the dining room, but some how we are always able to still carry on great conversation.

Excellent food , good service however extremely noisy in room we were sat - 2 large parties very noisy, especially when there were 4 of us celebrating daughter’s birthday, it was too noisy to speak or be heard. Wish we had been seated elsewhere.

Booked an outdoor seating for an intimate date, when the when we were being seated they took us to a booth close to the front entrance, i advised that I booked an outdoor and waitress said it’s full without even checking. Ordered drinks and was not even offered bread, food was ok not the experience I was expecting, will not be dining again

Well my husband and I just had to go back to Big Fin, since our recent experience was so great. We went for the Visit Orlando Magical Dining, which they are a participant (just until Sept. 30th. so hurry). It's for a great cause and gives you a chance to taste some of their best dishes. First thing to say is they definitely do not skimp on the serving size! Their pre-fix choices are the best. We love their oysters, so my husband started with them, but I just had to try the Fish Dip. To my wonderful surprise, they make it the authentic true Floridian way - with smoked mullet! Finally, I found a place that makes it right! Was wonderful. I had the surf and turf, and my filet was perfect! Creamiest mashed potatoes. My husband had the New Orleans style shrimp and grits. I have searched to find the best authentic shrimp and grits and I finally found THE BEST! My husband couldn't get enough of it. It's from the chefs family recipes. Dessert choices to die for! Great! We added the wedge salad and its a must for now on! James the VP/ Executive Chef was so nice to us and he was working hard right along side of everyone else. Our wonderful waiter Brian was the nicest, knowledgeable waiter. Great sence of humor and KNOWS THE FOOD! Go for the magical dining; help a great cause; then return to try EVERYTHING. You can't go wrong with anything at this restaurant. Including the bartender! He's funny and well - perfect!

Was greeted when I arrived which was a plus. Had reservations at 8 but we arrived just in time to enjoy happy hour at the bar. Didn’t know for sure what I wanted but the bartender ask me what I had a taste for and I explained. Brought me a glass I couldn’t resist to order another one. Fast forward our table was ready and the waiter was very attentive... which I loved. I ordered a Caesar salad and it was just right for my appetizer. For the entree I have ordered 3oz lobster with steak and a order of grilled shrimp with asparagus and mashed potatoes and it was delicious. Not over cooked. Dessert.... ordered brownie and cream and it very moist with caramel and fudge drizzled on top.

We went to this restaurant to celebrate a birthday. It was our first time and we were very pleased with the experience. The waiter was friendly and provided great suggestions. Our meals were very tasty and more than I could eat in one sitting. We will gladly return for another occasion.
