This is our favorite seafood restaurant in Wilmington. Each time we've been there, the service has been fantastic. Not just from our server, but the whole staff and the owner, who stops at every table. The food is fresh, tasty, perfectly seasoned and perfectly cooked.

Really good good, delicious steamed clams, delicious grilled fish. Wine list mediocre, especially wines by the glass. Would go back but be cautious of wine choices.

Now don't get me wrong , this is a good resturant and I felt the freshness and quality of the seafood was good , I just don't understand for something basic it has such a high rating. I guess I was just expecting more maybe ?

From the outside, Fish Bites is nothing to brag about (its in a strip mall) but once you try the food, you will be coming back regularly. This is our second time to Carolina Beach and Fish Bites was on the agenda both times. We haven't been disappointed yet. When we came to CB last time, it was recommended by... More

We've been here a couple times and my favorite is the Ponzu Tuna Filet. The atmosphere is informal and it seems there are lots of regulars, especially on lobster night.

Staff was nice and food was superb! Shhh, the locals will not want you to find this gem! Small so you will probably will have a wait but it is well worth it!
