Very Good Seafood

Casual and fun place. Reasonable prices and good variety on the menu. Has outdoor seating so come early and be prepared to wait during peak seasons.

With a million dollar location, and a charming exterior and interior, with lots of outdoor seating at the beach, one would think that seafood would be the star of the menu. Unfortunately there is very little seafood offered, One fried basket of shrimp and few others seafood items. Their clam chowder was very highly awarded, but was about $5 for... More

Ok, this is one of Carolina Beach's best kept secrets!! This place has the most amazing food, from the bacon wrapped shrimp starter to the Shrimp and Lobster grits, Guiness BBQ chicken and risotto meals to the bananas foster dessert, everything was amazing! I highly recommend you eat here if visiting Carolina Beach!

The risotto was like glue, Salmon overcooked and cool, the lobster bisque lacked the key ingredient (lobster),the the food served late (we waited over 40 min for our main course) and when it arrived it was cold. The service was non-existent (though not busy) and all I could think was that I spent over one hundred dollars on four meals... More

Visited this resturant tonight (march 16th,2015) for my husbands birthday. We have never been here before, so we were excited. Our server (michael) was just wonderful, he was friendly and seemed to be to generally care about making our visit pleasant. The food was to die for, great quantity and plate presentation. Will deffinetly be back

My husband and I came her for lunch..and the food and atmosphere was so good we came back for dinner. Should you go, make sure you taste the Shrimp and Grits. The staff were kind and courteous as well.
