Just saw the cover band Seneca Guns at the Sea Witch Tiki Bar and they were great. Great crowd and the wait staff were excellent and hard working. I had the seafood chowder and my wife had the wings. We didn't enjoy either one. My wife actually got sick twice after leaving but, the band was great and the drinks... More

Food was average but had a large beer and drink selection. A good place to relax and unwind. Great ambiance.

We traveled from out of town to come here. The party ended before midnight. The costume contest was unfair. They gave out numbers to people who weren't original at all but skipped the people who were. I'm not sure we'd come here again.

Jenni P, Owner at Sea Witch Cafe, responded to this review

We could only have 25 people entered into the costume contest out of 300 people there, due to time restrictions it takes to hold a contest. I'm sorry you weren't chosen as a finalist - just as I have apologized to you on our Facebook page (that you gave a bad one star review as well). You were a Pikachu,... More

Loved this place. The food was amazing. Our waitress Mary was wonderful. Its a very casual place . Nothing fancy. The chef does a wonderful job. Best fried oysters I have ever had and I have had a lot. Went there for my Birthday. We are from Ohio. We are going back to Carolina Beach hopefully next year.

We loved our experience here! The crab dip, fish & shrimp were perfectly cooked. There's a large outdoor patio that has its own bar (open during peak season). The wine list was great, and we went on a Monday, so the bottle was half-off! Our server was kind, attentive and took good care of us. HIGHLY recommend coming here if... More

Stopped in for lunch with friends recently, right after hurricane Matthew. I had read negative reviews on trip advisor for this place. However, disregard those negative comments! The food was really good, I had the ahi tuna nachos, friends had fried oysters, and shrimp. The drinks were special, inexpensive, and delicious. Mitchell was our bartender extraordinaire!! He was very friendly... More

We ate here for dinner and were pleasantly surprised they have live music. We sat outside and the atmosphere was beachy & laid back which was perfect! Food & service were both good, They have specials every day. Good drinks as well. Can't go wrong here!
