Ate here on a Thursday night. We were disappointed that we couldn't sit out on the pier to eat. The service was okay but my water stayed empty until I asked for a refill. I had the catch of the day, Salmon, and it was pretty good.

We had good service and the restaurant was clean and child friendly. The cost for the 3 of us was just over $125. The beach front was lovely and the tiki bar is on their pier it has great feeling. Casual dress and easy going.

Here you have the choice to eat inside downstairs, inside upstairs, inside a 3 season glass room or outside. Really nice to have the options depending on your party. On our date night, a Thursday we sat outside, in the summer they have live music on Thursdays. The food was very good, we both had fish. The mojitos were tasty... More

The views here are great. You can watch the waves while eating. They have a large variety of fish and seafoods to choose from. If you are allergic to the above this place is only so-so or for those whom are vegetarians. They did offer a black bean burgers and a few salads. Bring your own straws however, as our... More

We enjoy sitting at the Tiki outdoor bar, eating fresh shrimp with bloody Mary's. There is frequently a strong wind which can be annoying if one has long hair. It is also quite warm unless you can find a seat on the shaded side. This is apopular, hot spot in Carolina beach. The shrimp was very fresh, the service was... More

My husband loved the tacos! Drinks were definitely worth the money. Not to pricey. Fun spot! Wings were really good.

My husband and I have to hit up the tiki bar for Mahi tacos and a drink everytime we visit Carolina beach. The view is great, drinks are good and most of the food seems fresh. It closes a little early so get there before 9pm!

Not exactly cheap but great views and good times were had hanging out at the Tiki Bar! Too bad it closes at 9PM in the middle of peak season! Seems like they should have some live entertainment out there, at least on the weekends!
