Happy Hour Hit List: Big Fin Seafood Kitchen

Sand Lake Road in southwest Orlando is known as Orlando’s Restaurant Row – home to some of the best restaurants in town. There’s also a number of great happy hour specials on Restaurant Row – a great draw for the nearby conventioneer traffic as well as for locals.

Big Fin Seafood Kitchen is no exception – serving up some of the finest seafood and happy hour specials in Central Florida.

Big Fin™ Seafood Kitchen opened on December 1, 2009, one of the few owner-operated restaurants in the area, in the Dellagio Town Center.

Located in the heart of Central Florida’s tourist area near all of the Orlando attractions, hotels and resorts, this year Big Fin celebrates their 10th year anniversary.

The upscale casual restaurant with two full service bars and an outdoor patio is open every day at 5pm and serves “Global Fresh Seafood, Steaks and Pasta along with Sushi and a Raw Bar with featured items such as fresh raw oysters, served chilled, and more.”

Many of these dishes are featured on the happy hour at happy hour prices with the same quality – going perfect with a drink like a classic Manhattan as well. Some of my favorites include the Big Fin style broiled oysters with garlic butter and topped with parmesan cheese – there’s a hint of New Orleans style in the dishes here – all done very well.

Since the opening in December 2009 Big Fin™ has served:

  • 1.75 million fresh shucked oysters
  • 125,000 lbs. of Whole Maine Lobsters
  • Over 300,000 Stone Crab claws
  • 250,000 Sushi Rolls
  • 175,000 lbs. of Grouper
  • …and counting…

Executive Chef and Partner James Slattery has resided over Big Fin’s kitchen since its opening in the fall of 2009. Prior to working at Big Fi, he resided as Executive Chef at Circa on Park Avenue in Winter Park. Chef Slattery’s career in the culinary world began in the late 1990’s at Emeril’s restaurant at Universal’s City Walk, becoming sous chef and then moved to Emeril’s second Orlando restaurant Tchoup Chop at the Royal Pacific Hotel as Executive Sous Chef until 2007. Before joining Big Fin, Chef Slattery also worked at A Land Remembered, the steakhouse at the Rosen Shingle Creek Resort.

Chef Slattery continues to be proud of the work Big Fin has accomplished these past 10 years and looks forward to preparing dishes using his chemistry background, his classical techniques and above all, his creativity.

There is a sense of pride – and rightly so – when he speaks about the quality of the dishes here at Big Fin from the seafood to the steaks and lamb.
