This is a nice place for a special date night. I was a little disappointed that all beer was bottled or cans but the selection was good. The service was top notch and the food was really good.

We had a great experience. We were sat in a little section off to the side. It was quiet and nice. The service was perfect. We had two servers who were the most attentive servers we’ve ever had. Explained the menu in detail. Food was cooked to perfection. They found a bottle of Remy for my husband which they’ve had none of for a while, Made him extremely happy. Dessert was perfect. We will be back soon.

We asked if the chef could cut the kids fish and chips smaller to resemble fish sticks…no to that. Then we changed it to grilled cheese…came out completely burnt and the waiter actually asked us after looking at how terrible it looked if we would want him to get a new one. UH YEAH!! I’m not feeding my child disgusting, inedible, completely burnt food! Drinks took forever and waited for refills. The place wasn’t even busy for there to be such bad service. Very expensive for crappy service and burnt food.

We are not from the area, but we had been here 6 years ago and had a wonderful experience, so we decided that we needed to go back. It was once again fantastic! The service and the timing of the meal were exceptional. The grilled oysters are better than I remembered and they were the best I have ever had. All 4 main courses (Sea Bass, Shrimp Scampi Pasta, Lobster Tail, Blackend Shrimp and Scallops) were very tasty and prepared perfectly. We will definitely return the next time we are in the area!

The server didn’t know much about the menu. They forgot out appetizers. Our food came before our appetizers. Our server never came back in order to let him know. The seafood was MEH. It was not worth all the hype.

It was out last night in Orlando & wanted some seafood. My husband & I shared a crab cake appetizer. He had the blackened shrimp & scallops with grits & I had the Chilean sea bass. Both were delicious. We finished the meal with a piece of key lime pie. Our waiter was great, very attentive and excellent service. Glad to see the place is opened and people are working.

Got the crab stuffed lobster & the crab meat was good but you could tell that the that the lobster was boiled multiple times. The meat inside was dry and could barely pull off the shell. Our other order was the crusted mahi-mahi and it was very good, very good serving size. The other order was a seared swordfish – also very good and very good size.

Overall disappointing!
Usually One of our favorite places when we visit Orlando however it has seriously gone down hill Post Covid.
Service, Food prep ambiance all less then a fine place to go.

So sad! Hopefully they get it together soon.

Exceptional variety of seafood dishes
Scallops tender. Mahi-mahi dinner excellent. Our server Logan made the dining experience very special he was knowledgeable of menu items and provided excellent service. I had cheesecake for my birthday celebration and chef wrote happy birthday in caramel Sweet touch. Well worth the value. 5 thumbs up

I love and have always loved Big Fin! Their happy hour is a great value. We were very frequently and well attended to, and had great drinks and food. I would say don't skip out on their main menu though, because they have some amazing seafood options. We sat outside on the patio and it was nicely shaded with fans so it was really comfortable and not too hot. Thanks for the great service!

Odd management choices in how tables are sat. The food was just okay. Certainly not worth the high price tag. Better and less expensive options nearby. Or better and equally expensive options just down the street. It wasn’t bad. There just wasn’t anything special about it that made me think that I really need to return.

We had a 6:30 reservation for 8 people. We were greeted promptly and seated. We ordered bottled water and a few drinks. The waitress came back after a long while and brought us all tap water. Said oops I forgot. We asked for extra limes with our bar drinks and she forgot those as well. We ordered 2 appetizers which took 45 minutes to come out! We didn't receive our entrees until almost 8 o'clock. Which were cold or over cooked. The only took one entree off the bill. Ruined my parent's 44th Anniversary dinner. Do not recommend.

Horrible. Started with a martini served with two straws. Oysters in the half shell that were not loosened from the other half. Two appetizers that arrived cold. A befuddled manager said she would have the appetizers refired. The wait was so long(other guests were presented their food) that we asked for the check so we could leave.
