For a first visit to Carolina Beach, I wanted to visit as many old-school mom-and-pop bbq places as possible. So, the last place I wanted to try was a large restaurant that seemed to cater to a bar crown (and probably wouldn't be known for good food). I could not have been any more wrong.
First, the service was outstanding- a local college student who provided guidance on the menu and lots of patient answers to our questions about things to do in the area.
Second, the crab dip appetizer was freshly prepared, had a great flavor and was very filling.
Third, prices were reasonable and dinner plates abundant.
Fourth, when we walked in, we were surprised to see lots of families (all with much younger children than my two teenagers), all of whom were enjoying good food and very friendly service.

By the fishing docks, the locals recommend it, much better than the Kate's Pancake House. I went there for the omelets. If you like diners, you will like this place

Visited for a spontaneous dinner recently. Location is nice overlooking harbour, initial service was good. The waiter was excellent for example. However as we were sitting outside we got attacked by flies which got worse when the food arrived. The meals were two adult and two kids were okay, César salad was the best but again we were expecting great seafood and it was the usual selection of over creamed sauces with small shrimp. Perhaps if burgers and sandwiches would have been better and the flies were seasonal. Other minor gripes included no cutlery so I had to go and find some as other waiters on our table were not interested in helping us plus second round of drinks took so long we had finished our meals before they arrived. But a very nice waiter kinda made up for some of this.

When visiting Carolina Beach (better known as CB) don't miss Gibby's. They do it all, great breakfast, lunch, dinner, live music and late night bar food. Here are a few tips from a local who goes there all the time: breakfast the omelets are great, lunch their salads are to die for, their chowder is the 2013 Chowder Cook Off winner and well deserved. Try the Shelby Fried Green Tomatoes and the Banging Shrimp. Most nights they have a band, some times rock, blues or country. You can never tell but always fun. Sunday afternoons are great with a make your own Bloody Mary, music and football or SIT OUTSIDE one of e few places on the island with water access and what a view. Dock your boat and enjoy. Ask for Lori, Liz or Lionel they are my favorite servers. Come visit CB and don't miss this spot!
