“Good food nothing special”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2012 via mobile

Good food, nothing too special. Our server was good. The Mahi tacos are pretty good! Good place to go during high season for an adult night out.

“Very enjoyable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

I loved the setting, I loved the layout of the restaurant with outdoor eating among the palms. Good food and not overly expensive. Attentive service and great atmosphere. Had a good time, and I'll be back!

“Great combo beach & tiki bar!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2012

I've been to the Sea Witch 6 or 7 times. The food has always been great. They have the best " wings" on the island. If you like it spicy, try their Honey Habanero Wings. Large outdoor area with lights around the palm trees. Live bands on the weekends with large dance floor. Great place to just have fun!!

“favorable ratios= people:fly and fun:money”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2012

Even though CB has been an old haunt there have been several things that has prevented me from visiting the Sea Witch. 1. The name brings up visions of hags from the sea (I want babes not hags--free advice..change the name to Atlantic Babe); 2. It has appeared to be pretty run down in the past--I recall just two years earlier popping my head in the ole Sea Witch and watching a family of gluttons pounding down some sort of spaghetti with bright orange sauce (that image will stick with a person for some time, believe it or not); 3. During said glutton vision, there seemed to be 5x flies to people.

Now here we are in 2012 and the Sea Witch is #5 in the CB restaurant list. What gives? The answer follows. The Sea Witch is a combination of a Key West and Myrtle Beach joint that is located half in- and half out-of-doors. It makes you think you are not at CB. They even have palmettos wrappend with rope lights. That is how cool this place is. It is a bar and restaurant with a live band--at least on weekends. Wife had a crab cake sandwich and I had the fish and chips--both excellent. And the onion rings are very very good. They did not have hushpuppies. They did have a big beer menu. We'll be back.

“If they have a band do not bother going for food.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2012

We live in CB and frequent the SeaWitch regularly, especially in the off season, because it is a great spot. We were Disappointed when we stopped by for dinner at 8 one night and there was a $5 cover for the band. We said we just wanted dinner and they still charged us. We passed several open tables and went to the hostess stand and she said the wait was 1 hour. We were starving, left went to Havana's for a great meal.
