Normally my husband and I travel o Carolina beach 2 or 3 times a year and I never noticed Bowman's. The seafood was hot and very fresh, I would definitely recommend to all my fiends.

If you are looking for Calabash style seafood on Carolina Beach, you will enjoy a meal here! Everything from the hush puppies, to fries along with all the fried shrimp, oysters, flounder and deviled crab was fixed to true calabash style deliciousness.

This restaurant was recommended to us from a local. The flouder and shrimp tasted like it was from a frozen box. Didn't taste fresh at all. Service was good. Expensive for the quality of the food. The salad was good and the baked potatoes were large. Will not be going back for seafood.

Ate year a few years ago. I had a oyster sandwich with slaw and some hushpuppy before the sandwich came out. The waitress was very friendly and gave me some water before the order. I sat at the bar and watch TV and talked to the ladies behind the counter. The meal was so good, oyster was cooked lightly. Just... More

I've eaten here several times, and I've enjoyed every time. Serving plates seem small when you get your order, but there's a lot of food on them. I had oysters, shrimp, and scallops with baked potato. Our orders came faster than anticipated and were piping hot. It's a little pricey, but it's really good. Service was friendly and quick!

My favorite fried seafood place. Small and local. Nothing fancy. You get a lot of food for the money. I highly recommend the shrimp burger!

First turn off was the food was super expensive. Second turn off was the waitress. We was rushed to order and didn't feel comfortable being there. The waitress had a attitude. Will never go back.

We wanted just good ole fashioned southern seafood. Fried shrimp and scallops were wonderful!! Hot and fresh!! Would highly recommend. They were busy in February. Sure they must be packed in the summer.

This restaurant was recommended by locals so of course it is a must. Don't expect a contemporary atmosphere; this is in the old style, family owned southern beach restaurant style and food. If this is what you are in the mood for, you can't go wrong. We would return.
