Decided to try something new and go with the whole shell fish dinner (Admirals delight). As a first time eater of oysters (steamed) I was impressed. Although, their Seafood Chowder stole the show!! HOLY CRAP it was awesome! A bowl was enough to satisfy three of us.

We have gone to Michael's Seafood over the years since they were located next to the old Food Lion. Ive always enjoyed the chowder and cornbread..and that's what they are known for. But the last few times we have been ,including today ,we have been increasingly dissatisfied with the award winning chowder. It seems they started out using imitation crab... More

we ordered the Admiral's seafood platter. WOW! we could not believe the quantity or quality of the meal. The platter included mussels, shrimp, crab legs and oysters as well as cobs of corn and smashed red potatoes. The platter was more than enough for both of us.

Our server was very prompt with our drink orders and was very, very knowledgeable out the menu and how items were prepared. My wife and... More

It was our last night in Carolina Beach. We wanted a place to just relax and hide and had good food. We were not disappointed with this choice. The location is ideal. The atmosphere is inviting and the staff is excellent. But what makes Michael's special is the food. My wife had the daily special of encrusted flounder over risciutto... More

It had been many years since we visited Michael s Seafood restaurant, and we were pleasantly surprised on the service and quality of food. After reading other reviews, many others said to be sure to order the chowder. Your server will also tell you they are internationally known for their seafood chowder. It was very meaty (stuffed with seafood) and... More

Had one of the best rib eye ever. You can cut it with a fork. Prices are a little high. We paid 19.00 for it, but it was delicious. Server was great. I didn't like the veggie that came with so l was offerd something else. Make sure this is one place you go.

All you can eat crab legs during fall months on Tuesday nights. Yum! Great staff with legacy of giving back to the community as well. Don't forget to check out the aquariums and the beautiful surfboard on display by the front door.

No fried food here... I was going to get fried Shrimp... I instead had the broiled shrimp, and felt so much better the next day than I do when I eat fried shrimp. The restaurant was chilly- glad I had taken a sweater. The Pina Colada was very good :) The potatoes were good, the corn was fair. Just so-so.... More
