Chowder was excellent. We had crab legs, shrimp and tea. Bill was over $60 and we didn't feel this was such a great value. The shrimp was the type you'd get at a Japanese steak house, not the appetizer kind. They were just ok. Crab legs were good; however, the mashed potatoes were cold and terrible. It was just average... More

On our last day, and after eating at many restaurants in the area...we finally found the best one. The service we received was fast, courteous, and very helpful. Our server not only told us about the specials of the day, he told us where each fish was caught and/or supplied from. Very interesting and passionate about his job. Our family... More

We were considering other choices when a fellow hotel guest suggested Michael's. She did not lie! We were served exceptional seafood by a staff that was welcoming, capable and attentive. The waiter even went the extra mile by taking a dietary restriction and making changes to the entire entree to accommodate the special needs. If that wasn't enough, the bakery... More

Michaels Seafood restaurants Admirals Feast for 2 at $39.00 was fabulous. It included crab legs, oysters, clams, mussels and shrimp along with their smashed potatoes and cole slaw. I also had their special drink of the day Original Sin hard cider.

A short vacation at Carolina Beach brought my wife and I to Michael's. The service was OK but nothing to get excited about. The food was my second choice of the restaurants we visited. I had The Captains Choice which was good though again nothing to shout about. Michael's was my second choice of places to eat.

My wife and I and another couple rode the ferry over from Southport, NC on a recent beautiful afternoon to show the other couple a part of the North Carolina beaches they had never seen. It was getting late in the afternoon and we started thinking of dinner and with my usual group, the most difficult thing to do is... More

I thought this was one of the best meals I had while at Carolina Beach and I highly recommend the shrimp and grits. Very generous portion of shrimp and the grits were good also. Everyone else in our group really enjoyed their meal as well and were pleased with the whole experience. Our waitress was excellent and made great suggestions.... More

We had lunch and dinner there. Fish sandwich for lunch. Crab legs for dinner. Both meals were outstanding. The place was clean. The drinks flavorful and the service great. We had dessert there. Chocolate cake was amazing and my husband really liked the key lime pie. Highly recommend this place for lunch and dinner.

We had reservations at noon for 13. Waited from 7 until 7:45. Finally asked if they could not give us a final time we were leaving. Were told they couldn't make people leave. There were several large empty tables.
