We stopped here for a few adult beverages after it started to rain.....ok pour down raining. Had great service. Can't remember the waiters name but he kept 5 mid 50 year old women very happy! The rain caused some issues, but the staff jumped right in to help keep things fun! People were so nice. Made us feel like locals.... More

This was my 2nd visit to Sea Witch. My 1st visit I enjoyed the atmosphere & live music way more than the ho hum food. Given this impression my husband & I decided the Sea Witch would be a good choice for dinner & drinks with a nice atmosphere. I was solely there for the atmosphere knowing that the food... More

This indoor/outdoor tiki bar is a fun place to hang out, with trivia nights, guest musicians, karaoke, ping pong and some very good drinks. I found the burger to be meh but my wife was pretty pleased with her crab cakes. If you go to have a good time and don't expect too much from the food, you probably won't... More

Went here for an early dinner after a long day on the beach, both very hungry and wanting to try a variety of things. We split the Crab Dip and Ahi Tuna Nachos, both of which were great! The wonton chips used in the nachos were particularly good, and the wasabi aioli drizzled on the dish had the perfect amount... More

This place was the highight of our visit to Carolina Beach. One of the few competent, quick paced restaurants that delivered surprises beyond our expectations. The Tuna wonton nachos were so good, when we told our daughter (visiting the next day) we returned again just to have those nachos. The Wontons are home-made and fried on site, not from a... More

We have been to the Sea Witch for dinner a couple times in two years and also hung out at the bar for drinks another time. The food is pretty good. We stuck with fish sandwiches. The Grouper was good. Again, good fries. This is a bumpin' night spot with lots of seating and overall a great atmosphere. Live music... More
