Service was great. Food was very disappointing. Ordered swordfish and had high expectations. Not much flavor and was very dry. Wouldn’t recommend that dish.

Clam chowder seemed more like potato chowder. Very little clam. Crab cake was just decent. No discernible lump meat. Shrimp & Grits look like a hot mess but a delicious dish. Overall a lovely restaurant with top shelf service.

While on vacation, and checked this place out online and it very good reviews and a great menu. Boy were we disappointed. We ordered the cran cocktail which was good but it kinda hard to mess up. I ordered clam chowder that had a ton of raw veggies and seasoning it barely tasted like clam chowder. Then my husband ordered the crab cakes and I ordered 2 sushi rolls. When I bit into my first piece of sushi there was a big chunk of plastic wrap stuck in it. That completely turned me off!!!! My husband's crab cakes he said were just ok and certainly not what he expected. We obviously told our server about the plastic and they took back the food. The Manger came and apologized and offered free dessert. We asked for dessert to go and paid our bill then wait another 10 minutes for the to go "free" dessert after this restaurant completely let us down already. If you are a foodie like us and like to go to very nice restaurants when traveling or on vacation Big Fin Seafood is NOT the place to go. The service was good, except how long it took to get dessert but food was tragic! Stay away!

I orders Jumbo Shrimp Pasta and add scallops to my order. Got home and my sick man said there are no scallops. Very disappointed. My salmon was cooked well done and I asked for medium. I really appreciate the young ladies taking my pictures. Our waiter was not that pleasant.

It was our last night in Orlando and we happened upon Big Fin Seafood in a google search. We had no real expectations, but it was overall a fabulous surprise. The food was exquisite -- beautifully prepared and presented, and absolutely delicious.

Waitress was pleasant and attentive. Oysters were good. I had ghe grouper which was good a bit dry though I asked it be made with olive oil as opposed to butter. My wife had the crab cake (mostly crab meat as opposed to filler) and scallop appetizer which was nicely prepared. Reasonably priced

We were there on a Tuesday night and had a party of seven sitting outside on the patio. It was well shaded and give us the perfect space to have a nice conversation. Michael was our server and was fantastic. He gave extra special attention with my son who was having a hard time with the menu. All of our food was fabulous and all of the plates were cleaned. Will definitely be back

The wreck fish was delicious and could not have been better.
The lobster left a lot to be desired and had a bleach taste.
I would have expected a higher quality experience based on location and pricing.

Wanted to try a seafood restaurant outside Disney. This was a great choice. Excellent menu choices. Food was well prepared. And service was very good. The wine list was ample with many choices. Will definitely return when in Orlando.

I made a bet with Bae and I lost. As his reward, he got to pick any restaurant of his choice and his victory dinner was on me. He chose Big Fin and I’ve never been happier to lose a bet! Our amazing bartender, Greg, sold us on the snapper meals and he did not steer us wrong. We ordered both snappers (he got the red and I got the yellow) and they were absolutely delicious! Super succulent and perfectly seasoned with curry and Thai flavors. We thoroughly enjoyed the food and the experience Greg created for us. I will definitely be losing more bets just to come back again!

Overall positive on the food. We had a couple of Clam Chowders, a couple of Caesar Salads and a Wedge. Make sure you order the small Caesar unless you want an entre portion. The Wedge was big enough for two and there was no option for a smaller serving. The Crab Cakes were fine but had a little too much filler. The Chilean Sea Bass got rave reviews, our waiter recommended adding the sticky rice, and he was spot-on. You need the rice to enjoy all the shiitake dashi broth. The Whole Fried Snapper was well received but beware that the fish you are eating will be staring at you the entire time. Once again, our waiter cautioned us about that and he was wise to do so. The big winner of the night was Blackened Shrimp and Scallops, served with spinach, mushrooms, sun-dried tomatoes and crawfish, parmesan grits. There was an ample serving of both scallops and shrimp and they were blackened, but mildly, not charred, so you can still enjoy the taste. I don't normally eat grits but these were out of this world. If grits always tasted like this I might become a convert. Another 10 was the Truffle Fries. They came crisp and hot and tasty.
