It was one of the best meals we've ever had. Our waiter was knowledgeable and super attentive. The decor was tasteful, not with all the plastic, cheesy crabs and fish. Our last dinner before going home. Thank you for making it so special!

The chowder was the best that I had in Cape Fear area. The catch of the day was Swordfish, and it was huge! Prepared blackened, it was super spicy. My wife had the Ribeye, which she said was excellent. Prices are more than fair. Highly recommend. Same ownership of Big Apple bakery a few doors down, great place for breakfast... More

If you love seafood chowder, then you need to make this a must visit on your schedule! This is some of the best seafood chowder in the Cape Fear Region, and I've tried many of chowder in the region. (I'm a local...) The chowder is milk based and full of hearty chunks of seafood.

Great service, good wine choices, justifiable prices, and a wide selection on the menu. I got crab cakes and salad, my boyfriend the flounder and grits, and my mom the seafood mac and cheese. All of these were absolutely DELICIOUS!! Desert was fantastic too. Would definitely recommend!

I gotl to this restaurant everytime I go to Carolina Beach. I think they have the best seafood in Wilmington. I have been going to this restaurant about 5 years ago. I definitely recommend their clam chowder soup, mussel appetizer, and seafood platter!

Great food & nothing fried - all baked or steamed - which is nice! Food & drinks were good. My kids loved all the fish tanks with cool fish to watch. We sat by a table with a puffer fish - kept them entertained for awhile.

This was a interesting experience. We were celebrating our 27 year anniversary. We wanted to go somewhere nice. Michaels was definitely nice! It was a little " to upscale" for us. But we thoroughly enjoyed it. Everything on the menu was broiled, grilled or baked. But everything was done to perfection. We ate outside on the lovely patio, beside the... More

We were referred to Michaels Seafood as a recommendation from the Courtyard by Marriott. My wife wanted fresh seafood, and this was one of the options they suggested, especially for mussels. It was Saturday of labor day weekend, so the place was packed, but we ended up waiting less time than quoted. Our service was great and the waiter, Parker,... More

10 People for dinner on Friday night in a packed restaurant is not an easy task for most restaurants... we had fantastic service. The food was HOT, FRESH, properly spaced between meal and appetizers. Drinks stayed full and everyone was satisfied with our meal. The seafood bisque is great, my sampler platter was great. They even have crab legs on... More

If you are looking for the average fried seafood fare, this is not your place. It you are craving seafood that is fresh, well cooked and served with other fresh ingredients this place is for you. We had a large party of 15 for dinner. A quick call ahead and we had a table waiting for us outside on the... More
