We stopped here for lunch on our way from North Topsail to Wilmington. The food was fantastic. The Clam Chowder was delicious as was the lobster bisque. The shrimp and lobster Po Boy was great and we also had the Tile fish catch of the day which was fantastic. In terms of the sides the homemade chips were perfect with... More

Had the shrimp po boy with fries. Good food but nothing really stood out aside from the fries. Really good and crunchy with some kick. Mom got clam chowder, heads up its more Manhatten style than new england. The chowder was not great and a disappointment. If you come for lunch, stick with sandwich or basket

True to the other review, we arrived (6pm) to find a wait. Tables were turning over briskly so it was not an issue. That could be my only complaint. I had the Lobster bisque (wonderful) and my wife can't stop talking about the Oyster Bomb appetizer, as in how good it was. I had the Ponzu Tuna cooked for all... More

This small local restaurant has tasteful inside decorations paired with quick food prep and sweet waitress and hostess. I had the fish bites pasta, and it was some of the best pasta I've ever had. The sauce had a tiny Cajun kick that took it from regular Alfredo to DELICIOUS. Prices are a little high but portions are large. The... More

A short 4 day vacation to Carolina Beach brought my wife and I to Fish Bites. The place was packed. A nice young hostess found us a place at the bar so there was no wait. I order fried flounder oysters and shrimp though not a fan of fried foods my wife ordered the lobster and shrimp roll. My plate... More

One goes to the beach -near Carolina Beach and wants a wonderful seafood meal. Well, lthis is the place to enjoy just that. It is in a strip mall and one could miss it if you don't ask the locals where they get the best in seafood. And we asked and we got the best...the drinks, the appetizers, the menu... More

I was a little skeptical because I like to eat my seafood by the sea & this place is located inland butIit was delicious! We got grouper "cheeks" (nuggets), scallops, & coconut shrimp - on a salad and enjoyed it all. Even our picky toddler ate it up!

Wow, this place was awesome! We had a very friendly waiter, and the owner/manager came over and talked to us a couple times. Our meal was delicious. It was very fresh, well cooked seafood. I had the stuffed flounder with zucchini fries. My husband had the steamed seafood platter. We also had a delicious shrimp appetizer. We did have a... More

Amazing seafood, service and atmosphere. I had the Chilean Sea Bass. It was delicious. The desserts are great too. Weird location next to a gas station in a strip mall. But don't let that stray you. It's amazing!
