Big Fish Restaurant Review

: Big Fish serves up seafood with flair --- expect everything from honey-mustard salmon sandwiches to live Maine lobsters --- delivered in a casual, sometimes boisterous, setting. Try the macadamia encrusted shrimp, the Dungeness crab cluster, shrimp scampi with lemon-scented sticky rice and fresh vegetables, and the crab-stuffed sole. Need a quick bite in the bar area? Staff couldn't be more accommodating. Happy hour Monday through Friday has martinis and cocktails like the spicy cucumber and pomegranate, and mango mojitos; a basic glass of wine is $4 and premium drafts ring in at $4. It's also when appetizers range from $4 to $7 and include portobello mushroom fries with honey jalapeño aïoli for dipping, crab BLT sliders and mini lobster rolls. For oenophiles, there are wine selections from Cakebread Cellars, Opus One, Belle Glos 'Meiomi' and Antinori’s Chianti Classico Riserva, as well as options by the glass at price points for all pocketbooks. Live entertainment Friday and Saturday nights.
