I am not a seafood person, but my parents love fried seafood--if that's what you like, this is your place! Very reasonably priced too. Great sweet tea and hush puppies! Hamburger steak was enormous.

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.
