"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.

Nice to finally be eating out again. Service was prompt and attentive, and the food was delicious. Limited menu with just three or four options each for meat and seafood but lots of sharing/appetizers which is not really surprising given COVID keeping folks away.

Big Fish is our favorite restaurant in Issaquah. The food is so fresh and delicious and the service excellent. We love eating outside on the patio, especially on a sunny day. I especially like the seafood salad. Thanks Big Fish for making my husband's recent birthday lunch a great experience.

I had great expectations after seeing the end on line, so was disappointed when ordering a wagyu steak meal. The meat was prepared as I asked, but it was rather rubbery bordering on tough. My husband's salmon was also not exciting; the filet was overcooked and the edges burnt. A friend's chipotle bean burger was reportedly quite good. The servers were good, the outside seating was pleasant. The drinks were good. Only the food disappoints. However, I would give this place another chance, and try something else on the menu.

Had the shrimp and scallops and fettuccini, was very good. Had the paella and it was OK. The big appetizer platter was not that great, especially for the price. The crab cakes on it were good, but the coconut shrimp wasn't. The brownie dessert was disappointing.

I have always LOVED the fish tacos here and it is the only thing I order. This time they were so BLAND I had to ask for more limes and salt and pepper to make them palatable. Not sure if I will return service was outstanding though.

Waitress was wonderful. Crab cakes were dry (needed more sauce), beef was tough and too much grissle (did not finish it). Waitress talked to the chef and the meal was removed from our bill. The scallop dish was very good and highly recommended. Too bad this happened on Father's Day. We probably won't return to this restaurant in the future.

We had a nice al fresco dinner last night on their patio, beautiful evening. Our server was excellent, a real energetic young lady. I ordered a glass of La Crema Chardonnay for $13 a glass. I knew the price when I ordered, but it rubs me the wrong way when I can buy the bottle for that at Costco. I had the crab cakes and pear, pecan blue cheese salad, always a favorite, no complaints. My husband ordered the wild salmon Oscar. He said it was good, but his plate contained 3 large new potatoes with a relatively small piece of salmon on top. It was $32. I love my neighborhood restaurants and support them, but I feel this restaurant is overpriced for what you get.

a $32 steak should taste a little bit better than this one did, and, ordering medium means pink, not blood red. I bit over-priced in general, there are better places to go to feel like you get a bit more value.

Went to Big Fish Grill for Mother's Day brunch. Food was good and our server was wonderful (friendly, helpful, prompt, good sense of humor). We've been many times for dinner but never brunch. Would highly recommend. Oh - and the Bacon Bloody Mary is crazy good!

When we first arrived, no one was at the greeters station, for a long time. We had to wander around the restaurant to see if it was ok to sit down.

Food was good, but we felt overpriced

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 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.
