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!

Staff works beautifully together & our main server was Johnny... More

Our family went to this restaurant based on a recommendation from someone who lived in this area, and we are sure glad we did. The food was the best we have had on our trip. The service and atmosphere was excellent. Highly recommend this hidden treasure!!!! Completely satisfied with our experience :)

Went there based on the ratings and reviews and glad we did! Server was great and food was delicious! I actually think my crab legs were the best I've ever had! I'm hoping to go back to Fish Bites again while we're in town! The kids liked it too 😊

Stopped here at the end of a long day at the beach with our two small children. The food was great. They have creative dishes, full of flavor, which this West coast chick is used to. The staff was also very understanding of our children and even brought by random snacks while the food was cooking to keep them from... More

Although it's a drive from where I live in town, it's totally worth it. Extremely fresh and the quality is outstanding. The only issue is it's small so there is a wait both times I went. So we popped up to the bar both times and had great service with no wait. Try the SHRIMP BOMBS. If I told you... More

The best seafood we've eaten in a long time. Less expensive than all other seafood places we,ve been on this trip. Great service from Cameron. Restaurant doesn't accept reservations....first come first seated.....we went on Tuesday night and there was over an hour wait....we left and went back on Wednesday before 5 pm and were seated immediately. So glad we went... More

We enjoyed a wonderful seafood dinner at Fish Bites on July 4th. It is small, but we had no wait since we ate later in the evening. The staff welcomed us and chatted with us as we dined. There was a great selection to choose from on the menu and it is possible to buy fresh seafood to cook at... More
