The perfect birthday lunch for my husband

We split an order of Shrimp Bombs first. They sere crispy hot and just the right size for an appetizer. Not too big, not to little. The sauce had just the right amount of heat so it didn't detract from the taste of the 'bomb'. Then we each ordered a Crab Cake Sammie. They were excellent... read more

This restaurant is great! This place is popular, so call ahead for a faster seat! Our server, Elisabeth, was wonderful. She explained everything perfectly and highly recommended the Shrimp and Grits, and they were awesome! The grit cakes are coated and came out crunchy and perfect! The flounder was well seasoned and cooked to perfection. We will make this our... More

Extremely Limited Seating makes for an average 30-40 min wait, however the food has been very good the last couple of times we've gone.

Waiter was great, only complaint is he seemed a bit distracted and was hard to flag down BUT he also apologized and was super nice... More

We always eat at Fish Bites on our trips to Kure Beach. Because it is so popular, we normally go for a late lunch or early dinner when it is not nearly so crowded. So far our favorite meal is to share the Sesame Tuna appetizer and lightly steamed oysters. When available, the Old Baldy oysters are the best I... More

We are so pleased that you enjoy our place and are glad that you've been able to try our "Old Baldy" oysters. Fish Bites (and only a couple other restaurants that we distribute to) is the only place to enjoy these wonderful oysters. We've been thrilled with the reviews of these oysters. We are getting more each week now that... More

After reading the reviews for Fish Bites we decided this would be the place to eat on our first night of our weekend getaway to Wilmington. I was a little skeptical because it's in a strip mall but don't let that deter you. The food was AMAZING and the service was impeccable. I had the shrimp and grits and my... More

After reading the reviews and being recommended by friends, we decided to give this place a try. When we arrived, we were told that the wait would be about 45 minutes. The hostess was very pleasant and offered to text us when our table was ready. When we finally sat down to eat, my wife had the grouper and I... More

Small place, expect to wait...but it's worth it! Our waiter, Cameron, was very knowledgable and his suggestions were spot on! Seared tuna and scallops were fresh catches and prepared perfectly! My son loved the shrimp bomb appetizers. Clam chowder was delicious (says a lot because I generally don't like it). Lots of locals were there which is usually a good... More

Located in a strip center with not many tables this was a great find. My brother who lives here recommended it and he was right. Big selection...even live lobsters. I had the fresh catch grouper sandwich grilled, husband had grilled flounder. Big hit was the zucchini fries. I was disappointed that the coconut shrimp in the menu were not house... More
