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

Good Food and Good times. Casual place with really good food. Price point is good with a fun bar. If you are looking for a upscale place this would not be the place but worth going just for the food no matter what.

We (party of 8) had reservations somewhere else, but decided to go here due to the recent good reviews. Wasn't our night, as we can't say the same after our experience. Restaurant not full, no lines, seated promptly, but had to wait for server once seated. As she was taking our drink order, couldn't make up my mind so nudged... More

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
