Great Second Visit

Had stopped in about a year ago for a quick bite to eat and only had an appetizer. This time around I went with my family for lunch after a day at the beach. We were early birds but our meal was very good and the portions were more in line with that of dinner than a lunch. Fish Tacos... read more

On a recent girlfriend's vacation, we rode the ferry from Southport to Fort Fisher. We drove to Michael's Seafood Restaurant in Carolina Beach for dinner the night of July 24th. From start to finish, the service and food was incredible. Our server was Parker and he had his work cut out for him with the three of us and took... More

We come here as date night every time we vacation in carolina/kure beach. We usually get the steamed seafood and have never been disappointed. Its usually busy but the service is always great and everyone is nice. Its a lil pricey so be prepared.

I am one of those people for whom good food can be ruined by poor service, which was the case here. Our party of 8 (including two young children and my disabled mother) were told we could either be seated immediately in the patio area or wait an hour to eat inside. We chose the patio, which was very hot... More

Well, I hate to write this. This was our second visit here and it might just be our last. *Poor service* coupled with incredibly small portions for pricey meals. The food itself was great... Everything else, nope. I am not the type to not tip... But tonight, the waitress got maybe 2 bucks on a 150 dollar meal. THAT BAD.... More

A first visit but not a last visit. Will definitely be returning on future visits. Fantastic fresh seafood that is well prepared. And, it comes steamed, baked, grilled or blackened!!!!

Holy cow. .... been coming to CB for years and somehow have overlooked this place. Forgive me for I have sinned not coming here sooner. We came with a party of nine. We were seated within a few minutes on a Friday around 7 in July. Busy but not crazy. Service was great. We all got something different and each... More

This was our first time in Carolina Beach, and after one dinner at Michael's, we had to go again. The seafood chowder is amazing! The shrimp and scallops were great, and loved the risotto. Highly recommend!

Best seafood ever! Admiral platter was plenty for 2 and 4 others to pick off of. Oysters in a full she'll were so tender! Bloody marys were good too! Sat outside with our puppies and all were happy! Will be back!

Stopped here on our way back from the North Carolina Aquarium at Fort Fisher. We had no issues with wait time (which was mentioned by some other reviewers), but we did come in early for dinner. Our server was very friendly and accommodating, and food was good with generous portions. Mostly writing this review because my family raved about the... More
