We came here on recommendation of a local who said that it was the best seafood in Wilmington. After spending the entire day on the beach, we were a bit surprised to pull into Fish Bites' parking lot, which is in a mini strip mall next to a huge gas station off of 421. The restaurant is a bit small... More

Fresh fish, amazing taste, great service! The food was awesome, and I didn't want to stop eating. I want to go back asap! I had Mussels to start, then pan seared scallops for my main, with a small plate of Shrimp & Grits. I was full, but still wanted more!

I found this restaurant through Trip Advisor. My husband and I visit Wilmington often and wanted to take our local friends out for dinner. I read that it was well worth the wait and there absolutely was a wait, but we didn't mind. We grabbed a drink at the bar and sat outside enjoying the "pregame". it took about an... More

Visiting North Carolina for the weekend, and decided to take an impromptu road trip from Raleigh to Wilmington to spend a little time on the beach. On the way decided to search for a seafood place to grab an early dinner, and stumbled across the listing for Fish Bites on Yelp. Pulling in to the parking lot, at first I... More

This was the second time that my wife and I have enjoyed eating at Fish Bites. The restaurant is a small friendly type of place. The only down side is that it is a small but popular restaurant so we have had to wait for a table on both occasions. However I wouldn't want to eat at a restaurant with... More

Our server was very friendly and knowledgeable re the items on the menu. I had the stuffed flounder and it was cooked to perfection. My wife had... More

Fish is very fresh- prepared perfectly. The space is a little small, but nicely done. Will create wait time due to the space limitations, but so worth it!
