Big Fin Seafood Kitchen Restaurant, winner of Best Seafood Restaurant by the Orlando Sentinel Foodies Awards, serves up some of the freshest seafood in Orlando (its flown in daily and picked up from the Orlando International Airport). It’s located on Sand Lake Road in the Dellagio plaza sharing the same area as Fleming’s, Dragonfly, and other Restaurant Row staples.

As part of our continuing series on Happy Hour Specials in Orlando, I visited Big Fin Seafood with Pearleen Buchala of Megayummo.com. The Happy Hour runs from 5:00 PM to 7:00 PM and is available in the bar areas known as the Trophy Bar and the Bar-A-Cuda Patio Bar (a very popular area with the locals). The restaurant itself is beautiful, towering high ceilings with a large globe centerpiece, rotating on its axis above the dining area. Classy red shades and the smell of wonderful fresh seafood pervade the restaurant.

Some of my favorites from the happy hour menu included the queen snow crab clusters, the freshest and succulent crab legs I have had in a while. You can tell that they weren’t sitting around somewhere waiting to be eating like at one of the many buffets around town that serve crab legs. These crabs were fresh and slightly sweet. Delicious. The 3 ounce cold water lobster tail, was also a standout from the happy hour menu. Despite being a small 3 ounces, it was still full of flavor and again very fresh. Overall, I think the drinks and appetizer specials are well worth the price and a great start to any meal at Big Fin Seafood Kitchen. It’s probably my favorite Seafood restaurant in Orlando at the moment.
