What Customers Say!

"Earlier this week, my husband and I dined at the Big Fish Grill located on the Wilmington Riverfront for the first time. Even though we are not big seafood lovers, we still each enjoyed delicious dinners (one of us had the grilled pork chops and the other had the grilled chicken breast) - plus we topped it off with your yummy dessert of bread pudding. Both of our meals were well prepared, delicious, and were quite large portions. We had a lovely dinner and look forward to returning soon and trying your crab cakes for dinner the next time. We have also decided that this will be a great place to bring any company we have visiting us for dinner or lunch - followed by a nice walk along the river front. Wishing you continued success."
