Part of me hates to write a review about this excellent restaurant. It is a nondescript place in a small strip of shops on your way to Carolina Beach. My wife and I discovered it when it first opened and it was never crowded. Now...More

One of the best seafood restaurants around. The food is great, service is outstanding, and portions are large. Get there early during summer months or you may have a wait.

Fish Bites is my favorite seafood restaurant. They have wonderful fresh seafood. Excellent clam chowder, great daily specials. Great Sunday brunch, too. It's no wonder they keep getting voted as the locals favorite. It's small but worth the wait.

I do not believe they accept reservations, but they do have call ahead seating. They do get busy at times, especially on the weekends. We typically try to go at an off peak time to beat the rush.
