Was told by many that 'Fish Bites' was a must do if in the area. First impression: located in a rather tacky strip mall off the main road. Waited 25 minutes to be seated. (Told it would be 10) Once inside, I realized that the wait was not because this place is awesome. It's because it's the size of a... More

We stopped here on our way from DC to Charleston and we were surprised with the quality and freshness of this place. Try the catch of the day sandwich and you won't be disappointed.

Enjoyed dinner with family at Fish Bites earlier this week. Place is in a small strip mall so hard to find but well worth the effort. Grouper special was great as were all of the other items ordered. Service was timely and polite. Decor was new and fit in well with theme of restaurant. Would come back.

I visited this place in October 2013 with memories of great food. I just paid them a second visit and the place was packed. Many people were waiting a long time to be seated. There was also a long wait after I ordered. I went to the rest room while waiting and almost lost my seat. The food is also... More

Our innkeeper told us about Fish Bites when we asked for a good seafood restaurant. Glad we listened to her! It was so good we went back the next night for dinner! I had the blackened shrimp tacos both nights (delicious!). I had wild rice as a side dish but it lacked flavor so the next night I had the... More

Our server was fantastic and the food was just as good! Husband had an étouffée special, I had pan seared scallops (yum!), kids had fish and chips and corn dogs. The restaurant was clean and nice looking.

My friend and I were in Wilmington to look at Evening Dresses. Since we were near the ocean we wanted to get some fresh seafood. After reading all the good reviews on TripAdvisor about Fish Bites we decided to try this place. We were very pleased with the food, service, friendliness and cleanliness. I would definitely reccomend this place to... More

Staying at Carolna beach looking for fresh fish. Wife found Fish Bites off the new smartphone. We saw a five star ratings from YELP, location was a strip mall. You can believe me, if you don't have an address you will pass it by. What a FIND! Let me see the first sign something was up was people outside, basic... More
