Delicious food! Chairs a little uncomfortable for people with back problems like myself. But will come back again for the food.

Went here after doing the Swan boat rental not too far away and had a decent experience. I was expecting the "boil" to come in bags like at many other places, but it came in a pan, perk- easier to get to the food. The cajun shrimp (mild) was okay. My favorite thing on the menu was the Fixins fries. Definitely a must try!!!

I like that we can customize the exact ingredients and flavor of our boil. They gave us plastic gloves to eat it and at first I was puzzled. But no doubt wearing plastic gloves as you handle Cajun flavored king crab legs, sausages, and potatoes were a game changer. Especially at the end as we cleaned up after demolishing the meal. Overall great service and a fun meal to enjoy on date night.

If you must go to Big Catch go to the one in Alhambra where you are treated respectfully. Dined here on 10/06/20. The server informed me that the manager needed an ID from me in order to keep dining there after I ordered oysters as a starter. Umm? Way to make your customer feel respected.. more like a criminal! So when the $17 half dozen oysters came out they were in the beginning stage of going bad and were disconnected from the shell. Wow, so glad I needed to provide ID to eat spoiled food. Ordered three pounds of shrimp subsequently which were okay. The server was very nice and accommodating but the manager needs to show his face next time he wants to treat his customers (who pay his salary in this pandemic) like criminals. Too many other seafood restaurants in Long Beach, don’t go here.

Service. Service. Service. The worst service I can recall at a restaurant. I've been here several times before and never had an issue. This time the service was simply non existent. Sat with only one menu for two people, 20+ minutes for water, 30+ minutes for appetizers. Was told I couldn't order an extra half pound with the boil... even though there were prices by the half pound listed on the menu. The server ordered my companions meal, then didn't come back for my order for over 15 minutes. By the time she was done eating my food still hadn't come out. The server tried to put the blame on the kitchen and took no responsibility for the fact that he never came back. The experience just got worse and worse as the night went on to the point it was almost laughable by the time we paid and left.

Food was ok, minus the zucchini fries - they tasted like they had been fried in same oil as fish. I also wish the lobster tail was not cut in half - easier to take out if they leave it whole

The crawfish were not fresh. All other items ordered were good. We had a huge seafood dish with all kinds of good meats, but the crawfish were lackluster. The pasta dish and rice dish were good.

The first server we had was very attentive, but he was doing a favor for our actual server who was busy. When the assigned server took over, she was no where near the same level of service.

They validate parking. Just tell the parking lot attendant where you're eating.

The place was very cute and quaint. Our waiter was amazing. The only complaint was the air conditioning went out and it was really hot Inside. We asked if they could open the doors and they didn’t. With the hot steamy pots, we were super hot and uncomfortable.

Our food was beyond delicious! We ordered the family special and finished it 😀👍🏽 (With the help of teenagers). Our food was served quickly and the wait person was cognizant of what we needed (napkins, emptying the scrap bucket, etc.) and took care of it right away. It’s a little pricey, but worth it for a special occasion. I would definitely recommend this establishment!
