Vacationing in Carolina Beach and want good seafood? Go here. Not fancy but very clean restaurant with friendly staff, and VERY good seafood. Lightly breaded served hot with AMPLE portions. Prompt service. Good for famies. Like reviewer previously mentioned, MUCH better than Michael's.

Average food. Nothing to write home about. Nothing remarkably good or bad. Hamburgers were just frozen patties. Seafood also frozen.

Bowman's has great fried seafood. We ordered a couple of the combo platters to share. When you don't feel like changing clothes to go out to eat, just get it delivered.
