Seafood
"Fresh, inviting, simply perfect" is our motto at The Big Fish Grill. Best known for fresh seafood, we also offer steak, chicken and other non-seafood items. All of our dishes are prepared with a Northwest twist. From our seafood cobb salad, seared sea scallops and coconut crusted rockfish, to our hand dipped halibut fish & chips or Wagyu beef & cheddar burger, we prepare and serve our food with the freshest products available; always keeping our guests in mind. Our guests are our priority and something we've always held true to is "anticipating guest's needs and desires." We pride ourselves in customer service with a personal touch and when a guest dines with us we want them to feel as though they are in our home.

It was taco Tuesday and I ordered the 4 taco special. It comes with chips and guacamole!
I had the halibut tacos with the fried fish and it was sooo good!
We also ordered the spinach artichoke dip and added crab to it. Very good flavor and lots of delicious melted cheese.

We enjoy going to Big Fish for lunch. The staff has always been great. Migel was our waiter and he was attentive during our time at the restaurant. The food was good.

We were not ready to order when waiter asked, so we asked for a few minutes. 20 minutes later I asked another waiter to go find him. Not happy about that.

They have a big dining room so can accommodate people during these "unprecedented times" which is nice. The service was really great, no complaints at all. The food though was very mediocre. From the children's mac & cheese to the main dishes for adults. Nothing special, nothing to come back to honestly.

Fantastic flavors! The food quality is excellent with incredibly delicious and unmatched flavors, clearly prepared by Chefs and staff that truly care about the absolute top quality of their work, taste, presentation and service. You can actually sense the care once you see and taste the meal in front of you! The atmosphere is always warm and "continental" feeling; never stuffy but always comfortable and relaxing. We had a wonderful Easter Sunday Brunch with our best friends and we all raved about it. Excellent value, particularly when considering the top quality and exemplary "can't get it anywhere else" flavors. Love the Big Fish Grill!

Our Seafood Fettuccini and Chicken Piccata dinners were delicious! Chicken Piccata was served with large asparagus spears that were tender and flavorful. The scallops and prawns in the fettuccini were fresh and delicious. Service was patient and quick. We will be back soon!

Nothing is normal with COVID dining. This was our first time dining out in almost 4 months. Valentines day. We were greeted at the door by friendly hostesses and taken tour our table within 5 minutes. Tables were spaced out and there were only 2 other table within the room. Lighting was low but nice. Out waiter, Tyler, arrived within 5 minutes to give us some water and ask about other drinks. He took our order. Tyler was friendly and helpful. Our appetizers arrived about 6-7 minutes later, one chowder and one Caesar salad. I was surprised at the size of the "cup of soup". Not the usual cup size, much, much smaller. It also was only luke warm. I like my food hot, not warm so this was a negative, along with the size. Salad was good though. I had the blackened halibut tacos which were very good. Husband had the seafood fettuccine with prawns and scallops. He said he really enjoyed it. Tyler did come to check on us enough times. Dessert we ordered the Marionberry pie with ice cream. This was probably the best I have had. It is made in house and the crust is absolutely fantastic. The crust was buttery and flaky. Definitely a winner . Overall a nice dinner.

Very disappointing, disrespectful treatment of solo diners on the patio. They accommodated every 2+ party - including those without reservations - way better than me. Every party was moved to heated spots as soon as they became available - except me. At the end, the place was half empty and they still wouldn’t offer a move.

We’ve been coming to big Fish for years. Obviously during the pandemic the dining experience has changed and we are glad that big fish was able to secure a tent and some heaters for outdoor dining. Tyler was our server and he did a wonderful job. They only have four tables outside so it’s a good idea to make reservations. Let’s get out and support these folks.

My biggest problem with this place was that we made a reservation and after arriving on time, had to wait 10 minutes for a table. Food was great and our waitress was great. Definitely recommend the drinks. Only other problem was being sat on the south end of the restaurant, every car that turned on in the parking lot across the street was blinding us. Not a lot the restaurant could do but maybe have blinds down.

Very disappointed in the food quality and prices. The Paella lacked traditional flavor, it had salmon in it which is not something you put in Paella, lacked other seafoods such as squid and white fish, and the mussels tasted like they were boiled then thrown in at the last minute. The worst part is the waiter said this was his favorite and best selling dish. The most expensive steak dish they had, was the lost disappointing steak I’ve ever had. It has Zero! Flavor, was overcooked and looked like it was fried in a pan with a lid on it. Had we not traveled 40min to eat at this place I would have walked out after the first bite. Don’t waste your money. $100+ dollars for two people with this experience, you’re better of grilling at home yourself!
