I came in with my family who were visiting from out of town. We had the best experience! I have been there several times and I love the food and waitstaff. The seafood is the freshest around and not all fried which is typical for this area. Our waitress, Kaileigh, was extremely helpful too. She helped us decide what to... More

The owner of this restaurant used to be a big provider of fresh seafood to Wilmington and decided 4 years ago to open his own place. So glad he did! In between Historic Wilmington and Carolina Beach, is this great seafood restaurant off 421. Just go. All the fresh fish can be done five ways and the sides exceed your... More

Johnny has been waiting on us for probably the same amount of years we have been coming! He is awesome! The whole staff is awesome! If you haven't been to Fish Bites you should. Now they do... More

Lobster bisque and Check 6 Coconut Hefeweizen beer are a wonderful pairing! Only had appetizers, oyster bombs, shrimp bombs, and lobster bisque but, the experience was amazing! Going back for dinner next!

Very friendly and attentive service. Raw oysters were fresh, and so was the rest of the seafood we ordered. Grouper cheeks are a must - full of flavor! If you have room key lime parfait is highly recommended.

Fair warning: show up early and avoid the usual dinner rush hours on Friday and Saturday as this place gets crowded fast. And if you have to wait, well, the wait is worth it. We have dined here many times and the selections are all very good. My only advice is skip the shrimp and crab cake; it's not that... More

This is the first time my husband and I have eaten here and we would definitely come back. We had shrimp bombs for an appetizer and they were very very good. (Whoever created them deserves a good star) all the food was brought out in a timely manner and was hot/fresh. The service could not have been better. Our waiter... More

We found this place when on vacation in Kure Beach. There are many seafood restaurants in the area but I read reviews for Fish Bites and we decided to give it a try. Everything we ate was awesome. I recommend the steamer platter, fish and chips, grouper cheeks and the shrimp bombs. We also went for the Thursday lobster special... More
