We ate at the Sea Witch twice during a recent few days in Carolina Beach. The kids enjoyed the kids meal and trying new seafood things, while Mama/I enjoyed the drink specials and the shrimp by the pound and fish tacos. The waitstaff was a cut above your average beach restaurant too, in terms of attentiveness. 'Would go there again,... More

The Sea Witch is on of my family's favorite places to eat on the island. It's a large restaurant with plenty of indoor and outdoor seating options. They frequently have live bands and a large area for dancing. Quality of food is always consistent, and reasonably priced. Service has always been excellent. My only negative is that fried pickles are... More

This place was PACKED every night! Great live music, this is where all the (adult) beach-goers go to let loose! They have great drinks too, but don't expect one right when you get up to the bar. Took about 15 min each time for the bartender to notice I was standing there with cash in hand. The bathrooms were a... More

Cute spot with outdoor seating in Carolina Beach. Fish was fresh, wings are good, catfish fingers are awesome! Service was very good!

Close to where we stayed, could walk. Outside bar atmosphere, very hot both times, but it is July. All wait staff and chefs accommodating! Both times I modified my entree and they were great. The first time I did a penne pasta with crab in a excellent Alfredo sauce sprinkled with parmesan cheese, excellent! Husband had clam chowder and peel... More

Wasn't as good as I was expecting it to be. Had shrimp & grits, was ok. Was very packed when we went.

Food was great, waitress was terrible - missing for long periods of time. Asked if we'd like the crab cake sandwich before the steam platter "because it takes 20-25 minutes"? We said yes we'd like it first and, of course, they show up at same time. Flies EVERYWHERE by the way. I know it's a seaside open air restaurant and... More

While having our family reunion on Carolina Beach we found the Sea Witch. Cool tiki bar vibe, friendly staff and the best chicken wings ever. Wings are huge and served crow bar style, all one piece. We had drinks and wings every day at the Sea Witch.
