This will be in the top of my most memorable meals. Who knew a Caribbean Salad would make such an impression? Toasted coconut with a raspberry vinegarette on fresh greens was the perfect bed for one of the best pieces of pan-seared salmon ever. My husband's scallops were the best he's had in Wilmington. Our server (Sammy) made excellent suggestions.... More

Wife & I enjoyed lunch here so much we went back 2 nights later for a very satisfying supper. For lunch my wife enjoyed the lobster roll while I thought my fish & chips were perfect. (Great home made chips by the way.) My wife thought her flounder at supper was "the best she ever had" & I thought my... More

Fish Bites is our favorite. Every time we are in the area for vacation, we make sure to stop for a great meal! This year, we had our family wedding lunch there and the service and food were excellent. The wait staff are always friendly and knowledgeable. Highly recommended!!

Small, comfortable, place with friendly, knowledgeable staff and excellent service. I had the shrimp and crab stuffed flounder with succotash and wild rice. My husband had the Trio of Flounder, Squid & Shrimp. Both meals arrived at our table quickly and were hot and delicious! I highly recommend this place. Be sure to get there early to get a table,...

We stopped here on our way out of Carolina Beach after our Memorial Day vacation and we are so happy we did, Our server ( Johnny, I believe) was awesome. He was friendly, attentive and talkative which we enjoy. I had been looking for Redfish or Grouper all weekend and when he suggested the fresh grouper ( caught by the... More

Everything about our lunch was fantastic. Even though the restaurant was full when we arrived, we waited less than 5 minutes to be seated. Our server had our drinks out right away and our appetizers were out quickly and were nice and hot. The crab and shrimp dip was divine- not spicy but packed with flavor. Unlike most restaurants, they... More

Between Carolina beach and downtown Wilmington in a little strip mall, next to a gas station it wouldn't jump out at you driving by. But it's worth stopping for. Modern and inviting on the inside with excellent seafood and grill selections, don't let the outside keep you away.

The restaurant is quite a way out of Wilmington on the Carolina Beach road. It is in a small strip mall. It is like a cafe with basic furniture. When we ate at lunchtime there were few customers so not nuch atmosphere. I had triggerfish and it was simply delicious. Accompanying vegetables were great and judged on this dish alone... More

This very good restaurant is in a strip center outside of town. We had lunch, we arrived about 11:30 and the restaurant was full when we left. They have a lot of regulars, the staff seemed to know almost everyone. For our lunch we both had the fish sandwiches (they list the source of all the catch of the day... More
