“supreme fish tacos !”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2014

The simple fish taco is made exquisite here ! crispy cabbage, mahi , and other goodies make this dish a winner ! its a great way to have a healthy burrito, but with fresh ingredients . Good atmosphere, jsut dont order a lemon martini here, very sour and very bad, but they gladly replaced it with a glass of wine, hard to mess up wine. great view of marina while eating fish !

“Terrible service, rude customers, food just okay.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 26, 2014

If you want bad service by young girls, who have NO idea what service is or pretty much anything else, this is the place for you. Also, you will get a very good dose of rude customers, a very nasty facility and food that is at best average. I took my son to the men's room to find urine all over the floor, paper towels a foot over the top of the trash can and spilled all around on the floor. Just filthy. And, to make this even worse, the restroom door is directly across from the bar. The maids can see in there all the time as the door spring does not work and remains open, the urinals are directly opposite the door and men using them can be observed doing everything. Even the toilet can be seen from the open door. The bar people can absolutely see this. So can the customers. It is bad. The waitresses give very bad service. Getting anything from them is a chore. Drunk customers are everywhere. Rude, loud and nearly all are there to see and be seen. The prices for the food are very high for what you get. Next door is the Bridge Tender Restaurant, which is owned by the same people. The Bridge Tender is good food and expensive. I believe this Fish House is for the "want to be's" that would really like to be able to afford the Bridge Tender but cannot. This is my third time at the Fish House Grill. All three times have been due to a good friend wanting us to go with him there. I will refuse to go to this "dive" again. Go to Wendy's, or Captain D's. You will save money and have a much better meal. Unless of course you just must be seen on the waterway of Wrightsville Beach.

“5 Stars!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 23, 2014 via mobile

Stop here every time we're at the beach. Food is terrific, especially the Buffalo shrimp appetizer. Great drink selection and kid friendly. The view can not be beat.

“Nice view--probably a better choice than looking at your food”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 17, 2014

All of the food my lunch companion and I had were not memorable--at least not in a good way. Some, but not all of it, could be called "average". I ordered a "lightly breaded" fish for my lunch. It was so hard I could hardly cut it with my knife. We won't be returning here.

“Great Views”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 9, 2014

This is a really nice place to go for lunch or an early dinner on a nice warm day. They have outside seating and it's great to watch the water traffic, especially on weekends.
The food was about average for a "beachy" type restaurant but the wait staff was friendly and attentive.
If you enjoy a relaxed outdoor atmosphere and watching boat traffic the Fish House Grill should be a must on warm sunny days!
