Amazing seafood and more. Our go to place that never disappoints ! Expect freshly prepared seafood at it's best. We had 8 in our party and all ordered different food. I split a steamed pot of crab legs, clams, oysters, corn, slaw. The flounder on the fish and chips was huge. The seafood combos were lightly breaded and delicious. Shrimp... More

They offer very tasty and high quality seafood. Servings are of medium size but very good. Seating is limited so arrive early or later...seem to always be very busy. If tables are not available check out the bar area...we have used it several times to avoid long waits for the few tables.

Been here a few times. This time was lunch. I always do the flounder basket for lunch and try to mix it up at dinner. Never had a bad meal or experience here. I recommend giving them a try. Always consistent, in my view

Fish bitrs is well hidden in a small strip mall. It's hidden between an urgent care and a convience store/gas station. Excellent, but beware, over the past few years EVERYONE has found out. They don't take reservations, but they have a great seat ahead app. Better use it or prepare to wait. This small place gets packed. If you don't... More

We just had crab legs and fish tacos that were outstanding. The place is always full and the food is still really good time after time. Great Calabash style dishes and more. A great selection of fresh fish. Only place I have found that makes fried clams from scratch.

Don't let the strip mall façade fool you. Once you're inside, this is just a magical little place in Wilmington. I've never had a bad meal here and the service is always friendly and helpful. The shrimp and grits (grit patties actually) are some of the best I've ever had and the crabcake sandwich is just wonderful. Top it off... More

My friends and I have eaten here many times, casual dress, reasonably priced, had different menu items, and different serving staff. It is so comfortable there. One word can sum it up: Excellent. Even better the owners are always in the building, everyone is smiling and laughing there. It is a happy experience. Fantastic scallops, shrimp, fish, fries, and slaw.... More
