Stopped in for lunch with friends recently, right after hurricane Matthew. I had read negative reviews on trip advisor for this place. However, disregard those negative comments! The food was really good, I had the ahi tuna nachos, friends had fried oysters, and shrimp. The drinks were special, inexpensive, and delicious. Mitchell was our bartender extraordinaire!! He was very friendly... More

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.

This was the closest restaurant to our condo so we decided to give it a try. I'm so glad we did! Out of our 3 nights on the island we ate supper here twice. The wait staff was friendly and the mixed drinks were delicious. The shrimp and grits and the sea witch chowder were both really good. Overall it... More

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. It does take them quite a bit of time to get the food out. But they have a number of TV's with different sporting... More
