All of the food was fabulous! The appetizers tasted amazing. We had fish, sea bass, for main entree and it was cooked to perfection. The wait staff were kind and efficient. The whole experience and evening was everything we could have hoped for.

Ordered Strawberry Lemonade and the server brought us out alcoholic beverages not once but twice !!!! And acted as if we should have Expected alcoholic lemonade !!!
The item that I specifically came for the Krakatoa sushi just fell apart when touched
the roll was definitely not wrapped correctly.
The whole fried snapper was perfect on one side and definitely not fried at all on the other which is pretty amazing in and of itself.
No apology or comp for the lemonade. Which is a real mystery

Drinks from bar were so bad we had to keep sending them back , i think the bartender must be new. Food was okay .. truffle fries were the worst they are just oily fries not seasoning , the guy that was preparing the food in the glass was using NO gloves to touch my food it was so gross. would not return

Been going here since it opened and it has always maintained its high quality. However on this visit we were not even allowed to substitute a simple side dish. Sorry my son doesn’t like broccoli. Big fin use to be very flexible and would almost create a dish for you. I would also say the néw chef,while still good, is a notch below what I’m use to at this restaurant. Service is always wonderful.

We arrived slightly early and went to the bar. The bar experience was very friendly very enjoyable. The host staff waited for us to complete our drink at the bar before seating us, we were never rushed in anyway. The lobster bisque was room temperature even after being sent back. My Wife’s filet although cooked to perfection had no flavor. I had the Chilean Seabass which was wonderful and there was enough sauce with the Seabass for my wife to dip her steak in to get flavor. The service was great, the food could’ve been a slight bit better.

We will return, but not with the same high expectations.

I don't know if race had anything to do with this but I'm wondering since we were the only blacks in the restaurant this night. We drove in to Orlando from New Orleans to celebrate the New Year and my grandson's successful completion of a goal. We chose a pricier place to dine and chose this restaurant based on the menu and other reviews.
We were seated promptly at our 7:45 reserved time. We ordered two oysters Rockefeller appetizers and two clam chowder soups that were delicious. We waited another thirty minutes until 8:50 at which time the waitress finally showed and brought us all a bowl of the same clam chowder soup that two of our party of 4 had already ordered and eaten. She apologized for our food being late, citing that the restaurant had several large parties that night and that our food was on the way.
Looking around, I noted at least two parties about the same size of ours who'd been seated AFTER us were enjoying the end of their meals. We decided to leave to try to salvage the rest of our evening. I asked to speak to the manager who apologized profusely and promised to"turn this around" so our celebration would turn out well. She threw the waitress "under the bus," stating she'd forgotten to put our order in. She stated she was going to adjust our bill to make up for having our celebration marked with a poor dining experience.
Based on her promise ALONE, we stayed but didn't enjoy our food at all. She asked if we needed anything else, and we asked for water refills. (It's ridiculous to have to ask for this in a restaurant such as this.) The refills NEVER came.
Check time: The manager removed the two appetizers and two soups from the bill totalling $55 or so. We wound up paying the full $180 for the four entrees that were served exactly 90 minutes after we were seated.
We felt played! We said nothing at the time and even left a $40 tip in addition to the $180 food bill. I wonder if anyone else waited as long due to large parties that night. NOT OKAY.

Food was very good, except not very hot. Service was horrible!! We had to clean our own dishes off the table and waited forever for our waitress to come back. Tried to use gift cards to pay and only accepted 3/4 of the full value. Used $80 of a $100 card and Later when I checked the remaining money on the card only $4 was left. Dishonest!

Will never go back!

Second time in 3 days. We needed strong outdoor heaters for our elderly parents. They were awesome before but initially disappointed as nothing was on outside when we arrived and slow service. But From the time “Harry” arrived all was amazing. Heat, light, knowledge of the menu and Harley Davidsons!!! Another super evening of service and food.

Wife and I I visiting the area, wanted seafood so first timers. We will be back!!!! Likely this week. We only do outdoor dining and this was patio, enclosed with awnings. So kinda outdoors. Great heaters and above head fans made us feel better. Tables spread out, everyone doing solid Covid protocol. Great service....oh the food!!! Outstanding. Fresh everything. Complimentary valet parking, the team inside and out got a bigger tip just for that! This place is a winner

We made a last minute decision to visit on Christmas evening. It was the first week of a new menu. I think a lot of people made the same decision as us as the staff seemed too busy for the business. Timing on delivery was off, plates were not pulled, my sea bass was cold, my grandsons filet was overcooked. We were asked by a manager how we were doing but at that point we were halfway through our meal and it seemed pointless. The new menu looks promising and we will try again.

Appreciated the team allowing us to spend Christmas Day with them. Everyone was extremely outgoing and very gracious. Every employee wished us Merry Christmas. The food was spectacular - welcome to the new head chef! We loved the sushi, grilled oysters, raw oysters, swordfish, grouper piccata and bread pudding. Thank your to Big Fin for their continued support in Dr Phillips! Special thanks to Greg and Harry!! You two are the best!

Very odd dinner.
Appetizer and salad came at the same time. Shrimp and grits were very good, salads were average.
Had to ask for another round of drinks several times.
The hollandaise sauce on the Oysters Rockefeller was like rubber. This was brought to the managers attention, who said he would tell the Chef. We were the asked if we wanted desert and when we said no we were handed our bill, with the nasty Oysters Rockefeller still on the bill.
The shrimp and grits were excellent, the rest was not so good.
