A friend recommended Fish Bites, located in a strip shopping center near the Aquarium. My spouse ordered a bowl of clam chowder and a lobster/shrimp/bacon salad roll w/coleslaw. Chowder was delicious and attractively presented. Salad was fresh and tasty (too much bacon for my taste). I ordered a bowl of lobster bisque and a shrimp cocktail. Again, the bisque was... More

We ate here as a family a couple weeks ago. Two of us had the catch of the day and my husband had a platter. Everything was super fresh and very well done.

Really good food, but a little pricey. Most of their seafood is caught fresh and local. Next time we go back we will be taking our kids.

A good place to go f/lunch or dinner, but it is often very crowded @ dinner time. This restaurant has been around f/a # of years, which attests to its popularity. You get hot hush puppies as soon as you arrive. There is a varied menu but most of the menu is fried items. All of the food on the... More

Most of the menu is served fried which tasted good and worth a cheat meal but probably a little heavy for frequent meals

Fish Bites Pasta was the favorite, lots of fish, shell fish and sausage with a spicy sauce. We also enjoyed the Fresh Clam Pasta - milder that the Fish Bites Pasta. We'll be back!

So good. You wouldn't expect such a delicious restaurant to be behind a gas station. They have fresh catch as you can see behind the glass very good quality food! Don't forget to try the grouper cheeks!

For some people, Friday night is "fish night", but every night can be a "fish night" once you've eaten at Fish Bites. Fresh fish! Delightful service! Cozy atmosphere! Delicious every time!
