We went there for lunch after seeing good reviews on TA. A great meal! The wait staff was super attentive and the food was incredible. We ordered the Crabby Sammie, the soft shell crab sandwich as well as the shrimp and lobster roll. Splurge for the zucchini fries - sooo good!

This wonderful little hole-in-the-wall seafood restaurant seems to always have a 20-40 minute wait... especially during the summer months. Once you've eaten there, you'll understand why. The seafood is fresh and the options are many - 6-8 different fresh fish options. From sandwiches to full meal, this is a great choice. Call ahead to get on the "wait list."

We went to Fish Bites 2 nights ago with 4 adults & 3 kids. The food was good, but honestly nothing you can't get elsewhere. Contrary to what some other reviews said, we felt some prices on the menu were reasonable, but others were high. My husband & I ordered fish baskets which were fair at $10.50 each. I asked... More

I came in with my family who were visiting from out of town. We had the best experience! I have been there several times and I love the food and waitstaff. The seafood is the freshest around and not all fried which is typical for this area. Our waitress, Kaileigh, was extremely helpful too. She helped us decide what to... More

The owner of this restaurant used to be a big provider of fresh seafood to Wilmington and decided 4 years ago to open his own place. So glad he did! In between Historic Wilmington and Carolina Beach, is this great seafood restaurant off 421. Just go. All the fresh fish can be done five ways and the sides exceed your... More

Johnny has been waiting on us for probably the same amount of years we have been coming! He is awesome! The whole staff is awesome! If you haven't been to Fish Bites you should. Now they do... More

Lobster bisque and Check 6 Coconut Hefeweizen beer are a wonderful pairing! Only had appetizers, oyster bombs, shrimp bombs, and lobster bisque but, the experience was amazing! Going back for dinner next!
