We enjoyed a wonderful seafood dinner at Fish Bites on July 4th. It is small, but we had no wait since we ate later in the evening. The staff welcomed us and chatted with us as we dined. There was a great selection to choose from on the menu and it is possible to buy fresh seafood to cook at home as well. We have already suggested it to others. We can't wait to return.

What a great find. Excellent FRESH seafood. Our table had the shrimp special with coconut/ginger sauce and the shrimp and grits. Both were great! Worth the drive down Carolina Beach Road to get to this restaurant. Low key atmosphere with excellent service as well. We will differently be back.

We have visited Fish Bites several times this year and the food is always excellent. It is a very small place and there is always a wait. When we visited this week, we had 8 people. They would not allow reservations or call ahead seating and they targeted one specific table for us that had a group that was there for the long haul. No alternate plan was in place until I went in and complained that tables that arrived after us were being sat. The manager was very defensive and very unhelpful and never apologized even when the table they had set aside for us ended up staying for 2 hours after we arrived. Fortunately, I asked to be separated or we would have been expected to wait that long. Service was good, food was good, management was poor. Undecided as to whether I will return as the managers uncaring and unapologetic attitude made for a bad overall dining experience. Their current fame won't last if they can't take care of their loyal customers.

Very fresh and tasty seafood. Atmosphere is very casual. Great staff and service. I had been there for a solo dinner once and sat at the bar. I was surrounded by people waiting for tables. Very noisy on weekend evenings.
