We ate here for dinner and were pleasantly surprised they have live music. We sat outside and the atmosphere was beachy & laid back which was perfect! Food & service were both good, They have specials every day. Good drinks as well. Can't go wrong here!

Being from Maryland, I know crab cakes. These are the best I have found in NC. They have followed the Old Bay reciepe to the T". The ailoli sauce with Old bay seasoning makes the sandwich.. Can't wait to go back.

Ate lunch here. Outside dining was nice but wings were over cooked and too hard to eat. Service was very slow. Grilled chicken sandwich was good but fries were cold.

The Sea Witch Cafe gave off more of a bar vibe than restaurant. The live music was nice, the service was friendly, the steamed shrimp and French fries were delicious. The crab cake sandwich was good.

New ownership and mgmt. has really improved the quality of food and service. Food variety is very good and things such as burgers, nachos (with tuna), special of the day... If a very hot day might want to reconsider since restaurant is not air conditioned...though very HEAVILY fanned. Daily beer and drink specials...good folks, good food!
