“Great place for seafood!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013

This place is 10 miles from Carolina Beach. Casual atmosphere. Fried and broiled seafood platters...flounder, trout, shrimp, oysters, clams, crab cakes, scallops. Plenty on the platters and you will not leave hungry! Great hushpuppies to start.

“Food was good/average.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013

There was plenty of food served! Couldn't beat the amount they gave you! The fried oysters were average, flounder was average and the shrimp was good (per my husband). We both had the oysters and eat them all the time but we both agreed they were only average. I like my fried oysters back home at our local seafood restaurant better. Sides we had were fried okra, boiled potato and french fries which were all abundant but average in taste. Service was good and efficient. We were visiting on a family vacation but when we come back, we probably won't visit again and will try to find something better.

“Great, stop-in and eat restaurant.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2013 via mobile

This restaurant is has great food and the waiters are very nice. It's not the best atmosphere(in appearance) and there isn't ample parking, but it serves the purpose. If you're just looking for a great place to get good food, value, and service I definitely recommend Something Fishy Seafood. I visited during the week and I heard it's the best time if you want to avoid crowds. It also isn't far from Carolina Beach (10 minutes).

“good seafood, decent price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

The atmosphere is very casual. Service is good and the food compares to that in a fancier restaurant closer to the beach or downtown on the Riverwalk for a fraction of the price. The servings are huge, the hush puppies hot. I highly recommend it!
