Great Fish and Chips

The fish and chips were delicious and the Cole Slaw was very good. Everything was delicious. The only goofy thing if that you get one side with the Fish and Chips so I got Cole Slaw but had to pay extra if I wanted the chips. They call it Fish and Chips but you have to pick Fries as your... read more

My husband and I live close to Fish Bites but do not go out to eat much, and decided to go on a rainy day. Ordered the shrimp bombs and they were the bomb!! bacon wrapped then battered. Yum! The fish tacos with flounder were excellent. Great cup of soup too! And they have one of my favorite wines on... More

Spent two nights in Wilmington and wanted seafood. Great choice with Trip Advisor! I am sure this place is packed on the weekends - close to the beach but we were traveling mid week and not busy. Food was great! Crab cakes were delicious! Johnny our waiter was efficient and friendly and very knowledgeable about Wilmington. Would be good for... More

Had dinner at Fish Bites while at Kure Beach. Small place with great food. Good service and very good seafood. Would recommend the lobster and shrimp roll! Not too far from Carolina Beach and Kure Beach, better than anything at the beach.

Spied their advert sign: "Fresh Lobster" and went right in. A small place, but not at capacity when we arrived on a Sunday evening. Indeed the lobster was fresh, and good sized--1.75 pounds. Steamed just right. Very friendly servers, helpful and attentive without being intrusive. Fried shrimp and clam plate was plentiful and tasty. Breading was not too thick nor... More

Until a couple of weeks ago, I would have rated Fish Bites a consistent “5”. The peel-and-eat shrimp and the mussels in white wine sauce are especially delicious. They have a lobster tank and the fish is very fresh. However, on this last visit, the shrimp were slightly overcooked, making it hard to peel, and I had to request extra... More

My wife and I spent Easter weekend in the Wilmington area and had our first dinner at Fish Bites on Good Friday. We went due to the other reviews on TripAdvisor and were not disappointed! the service was fantastic, we expected a bit of a wait and found space at the bar in the back, the bartenders were extremely friendly...

We go to Wilmington every year and always try to have at least one seafood meal while there. If you are in the mood for extremely fresh and well prepared seafood, nowhere else compares to this place. It may not look like one of the best restaurants in the area, located in the middle of a strip mall, but looks... More

We came down from Wisconsin on Easter break and wanted some good seafood. Little did we know that we were in for a real treat. This place is awesome!! The food was excellent and so were the employees. I think we ate half the menu and we still wanted more. You will not lose if you eat here. It was... More

U wouldn't think this place is a good place to eat because of where it is located but don't let that fool you. The food is good. The service was excellent too. We had the crab cakes, they are to die for. We will definitely be back again.
