We stopped here for lunch on our way to the beach, The environment was simple but appropriate for the beach. There is an emphasis on local food products. All four in our party had a different item from the lunch menu. They were visually appealing and delicious. Good service.

After our lunch experience we went back for dessert and had the Mason jar key lime pie. Interesting presentation and excellent. We went for dessert only as we wanted to more traditional local seafood for our main course. However seeing the entrees presented for dinner we should have gone for our entire meal.

We will definitely go back next year when we visit Kure Beach again.

My wife and I visited Carolina Beach for a short 4 day vacation. The Surf House Cafe was by far our favorite of all the restaurant's we visited. Wonderfully prepared and delicious dishes and the service and staff was very friendly. If you visit Carolina Beach check it out you won't be displeased...

Don't be put off by the low key strip mall facade, this restaurant is on par with the best there is. The interior is small, so on a busy weekend make a reservation. Our server was friendly and informative about the menu and the special. We started with a funky bourbon based cocktail and a mojito, then we tried the avocado smoked trout dip which had a delicate smokey flavor and just a hint of spicy; served on toasted baguette slices, very good. Next we had the grouper special served on black rice and the grilled trout with sweet potato. Both fish were cooked perfectly and the accompanying sides were also. Excellent marriage of flavors. Even though we were stuffed, portions are well sized, we shared a key lime pie cup. Fantastic, most definitely homemade nothing powdered or prepared here. Not a big children's menu, but we did see some teens and preteens with families. Don't miss Surf House on you next trip to the Carolina Beach.

Best fish tacos I've ever had and the little picked radish and arugula salad on the side was just amazing.

Great food. I ordered catch of the day. It was red snapper. They really know how to cook fish. Nicely seasoned and the skin was crispy. Only place I ate at that knew how to season there food. Didn't need to reach for the salt. The drinks were very good as well the service very good. I would eat here again.
