In a little strip just before going over the bridge so could miss it but draws a good crowd. We opted our first night for another place and were sorry we did. This had good food, mid range pricing and great service. Would definitely go again and recommend.

Great restaurant with excellent food and very efficient service. Our waitress Courtney was personable and the food terrific. I had the chowder (Unreal how thick and delicious it was) the Galley Sampler with sheepshead fish and a bloody mary that was great. My wife had the scampi and said it was wonderful. We will definitely be back.

We had a very enjoyable meal on a Saturday evening, even though we were seated next to a huge table of screaming toddlers. Our server was very friendly and took great care of us, but can't remember her name. There were 8 of us and everyone enjoyed their meal. I only had the chowder and beet salad. Loved the chowder...

We all shared the seafood platter which was huge, along with steamed shrimp. Wonderful, helpful (oyster cracking) server who kept our drinks full.

We have been here for dinner about four times. The first time we thought it was great food. That was a few years ago. Each time since it's been a bit worse. Each time we were there was not in season. So we would expect better service. The last time there, two of us took 40 mins to get served.... More

I went here for lunch one day on my recent visit to Carolina beach. I ordered the "famous" chowder and was not disappointed. You HAVE to order it if you come here. I was planning to go the next day before I left specifically just for the chowder, but other plans got in the way. Also, I ordered fish tacos... More

We visited on a Tuesday night and received prompt service. None of the seafood is fried and all our meals were great! We had a Galley sampler and the scallops were fresh and cooked perfectly! Also enjoyed the Island chicken dish which was tender and just enough teriyaki sauce. I'd recommend and will be back!

Visited Michaels with my husband and small child. Relaxed inviting atmosphere. Service was quick and with a smile. Menu was mainly seafood. They do have a few pasta items and flatbreads which dont include seafood. They also have a childrens menu with hot dogs, chicken, etc. Food was excellent!!! Outside seating available. Full bar in restaurant, drinks around $8. Restaurant... More

Stopped at this restaurant on way into Carolina Beach. Started out with Captain M's Seafood Chowder - great! Next,I got the Roasted Beet Salad with the Champagne Vinegartte dressing it was really good. The Buffalo Shrimp appetizer was way to spicy. I love buffalo shrimp but I could not eat all my shrimp because they were to spicy. My friends... More

We thought since we were here at the end of Sept., we would not have to wait for a table. Well, it seems the locals know where to go on a Friday night! Not much of a wait, but it was worth it. Great service, and great food! We'll be back!

Thank Mary Kay C
