After having been to Fish Bites several years ago and having a not-so-great experience, I was a little reluctant to return. When I saw the restaurant showcased on Carolina Weekend, I decided to give it another try. Wow! Everything was absolutely delicious. The tuna appetizer was incredible. I had a salmon dish with a fruit sauce on it that was... More

We started with the grouper cheeks, which were divine.....fried to perfection and served with a nice, subtle tartar sauce. I followed up with the Lobster/ shrimp roll, which was served on a lightly buttered, toasted piece of thick white bread.....so good! I had zucchini fries as my side and they were simply delicious and a welcome change from French fries.... More

I originally found this restaurant on TripAdvisor. Even though we have lived in the area for a year, we never would have gone inside this strip mall restaurant on our own. We have been here for dinner on several occasions and had lunch here today. I love the Fisherman's Stew ($21) so much, it is the only thing I have... More

I have visited this restaurant on multiple occasions and it never disappoints! Food is fresh, well prepared, well presented. Servers are always pleasant and helpful! Whether you are a " regular" or a first time visitor, you are always made to feel welcome and your meal will be one of the finest you have had! Highly recommend!

The restaurant is in an odd location, and the parking was tight. I don't eat fish so I ordered a steak. It was very good. The service was terrific.

We stopped in for the first time on the spur of the moment & we're very happy with our meals. Fresh flounder & chips along with some of the best scallops we've ever had! Definitely a place to return to

After hearing rave reviews for this local restaurant expectations may have been too high. The crowded establishment was noisy and uncomfortable. After being seated in the bar area we felt the need to "yell" our orders to the server who was friendly but busy. Menu items were not particularly cutting edge but included seafood options as indicated by name of... More

Fish tacos were average. Not very tasty. Fish and chips were good. Slightly undercooked. Lobster bisque was tasty but I preferred a little smoother. Odd side of tomato/cucumber without dressing. Very nice atmosphere. Waiter was average.
