Crab Dip was pretty much a crock of hot mayo with cheese meltedon top. Crab Cake sandwich was mediocre - no lump Crab. Bar atmosphere is awesome, though.

Always a must whenever we visit Carolina Beach. The food has always been very good. The strawberry pecan salad with fried shrimp, my favorite. For my wife the fried shrimp basket, always the same, always good. For years now, one the places we have got...to visit!More

Love this place. Love the open design with bar, restaurant seating and stage/dance floor. Our last visit was on a Wednesday night and they had a fantastic acoustic duo set up in the bar area. There is always a cool vibe and it can be...hard to get a seat at the bar but we managed. Later we migrated to a table, where we split the fried platter with shrimp and oysters. It was good and HUGE. We could not finish it…..can’t imagine one person eating it! The food here is good..not great. It’s just fun. The waitstaff was excellent at the bar and the table. Biggest negatives were cold baked potato watered down drinks. Salty dog was watery. But will I go back? Of course😎More

We went for lunch and it was so fabulous that we wanted to go for dinner. Then we were met with a very rude man who didn't want to talk to us unless we paid a cover charge. Which we did, and then he said...it was a two plus hour wait and he said we would not be be guaranteed to get dinner. So we had to leave. It was a very bad experience to end the day!More

My daughter and I had the crab dip and the bruschetta and pina coladas. All were amazing. Would love to get the recipe for the bruschetta! Although the wait was long, this place has a nice beach vibe with live music and excellent attentive staff....Thank you Faith! Highly recommend!More

Good place to eat dinner near the boardwalk. Seating is outdoor or open air indoor so be aware of this if it is hot. I can see this place being a popular attraction for younger adults at night but it is a family friendly place...for lunch and dinner. Food was above average.More

My husband and I went for dinner. Had about a 30min wait, which was fine we found a table at the bar and got drinks while we waited. When we were called for our table they sat us inside in the party room where a...big wedding group was and it was so loud and it was freezing and you couldn’t hear the live band playing nor could I hear my husband who was sitting right beside me. I went back to the hostess and asked if we could be moved to another table and why I was requesting to be moved and she was rude and disrespectful and told me that she could put us back on the wait list(the bottom of the list)for another table. Not accommodating at all. Probably won’t go back. We did not stay for dinner.More

We come to Seawitch everytime we are at Carolina Beach. Hands down it’s our favorite place to go with the live music and super friendly staff. If you are lucky enough to have Rain as your Bartender or server you will have the BEST experience!

It was a very uneven dinner experience. The quoted 30min wait turned out to be an hour. We weren’t in a huge rush so waiting at the Tiki Bar wasn’t onerous - nice setting, good people-watching, drinks small-and-weak. On the way to the table the...hostess told us there was a 2-hour max allowed and we would have to leave by 9:15. Wouldn’t have been a big deal except service wasn’t exactly jet - it took >30min to get drinks and an appetizer in front of us, just under an hour more to get dinner in front of us. If we’d’ve wanted dessert or a drink we obviously would have exceeded our time allotment. Food was pretty good (assortment of shrimp, chicken, sandwiches, etc. - note: there aren’t many vegetarian options), and while slow, service was pleasant. Also a plus was the live music - easily heard but not blaring. Price was reasonable for a resort town. Don’t know if you can make a reservation, if you can I’d probably go back and give it another try.More

I was so hoping to have an Octoberfest luncheon special. Sadly, it was so popular that they had run out of it by the time we arrived. Everything is worth a try.

I was craving fried shrimp and Sea Witch did not disappoint. I don’t like a heavy batter and they done a lite batter for me. It was very good. My husband had the fried oysters and he said they were good. Only thing is I...wish they would let you substitute a side for fries on their basket dinners.More

We were recently in Kure Beach for a family reunion and set up a big buffet dinner with Jenni. It was beyond our expectations, delicious food, great attention to details, and great communication. Memories were made! Our server Sara was so attentive and efficient!

We do! It’s on our kids coloring sheet, and not on the regular menu. We offer: hamburger, cheeseburger, hot dog, chicken Alfredo and chicken nuggets. All come with one side and a drink.
