Bowmans is known for fish at Carolina Beach...and, now, I know why!! My husband and I ate here for the first time while at the coast last week and I must say, all the hype is true!! We both ordered the 2 item combo plate...one with baked potato, the other with great fries. The slaw is homemade and excellent, as are the hush puppies...dipped in a bit of butter. The fish, for Calabash Style, was surprisingly non-greasy and not overbreaded, as is usually the case in the best of fish houses. Shrimp were not the tiny, usual Calabash Style, but half a big as your palm...and simply delicious...best I have had outside of Savannah!! (Honestly!!). I can't say enough about our great new find except, we will return...on our next trip down this way!! "The" place for your seafood beach trip meal, indeed!!
