Fun, friendly bar with daily specials such as 1/2 price everything on Wednesdays to $5.00 Bloody Mary/Mimosa Sundays. Atmosphere could be spruced up, a bit messy and not in a cute unique way. Excellent for reasonable drinks at the beach without going broke at the end of the night.

Although here for private party, the place is hopping with live band night life in a separate building. The seafood buffet was delicious. This is my fourth visit which all were for a special event. Love the food and great bar selection. Not warm enough for cozy, unique outside seating on my visits but the bar decor keeps your eyes... More

I had the fish tacos and they were super fishy which was a huge bummer. My son had the pork sandwich on toast and he thought it was great. Sweet potato fries were fantastic. Location is super, atmosphere is nice too. I will give it another try next visit for sure.

There's a lot to look at while waiting for your food to arrive. Decor is fun to walk around and see...like a museum! The food is great- standard fare but good variety.

We always love visiting the Sea Witch when we are in Carolina Beach. We live in Leland and anytime we go to CB, we go to the Sea Witch! They have a variety of food items on the menu that all taste amazing (Ahi Tuna nachos are the best ever!), the drinks are really good (Coco Rita and Sex on... More

Great hospitality. Crab dip exceptional. AJ is a great waiter. We enjoyed the specialty drinks. They have inside and outside seating. We enjoyed their recommendations.

I have eaten here a few times over the years. My most recent visit, we had a burger (very good) and the seared tuna nachos. This is a really great dish. Very inventive, with great variety of flavors and textures, nice presentation. Really, really good! Went back a second time to have them again.

Ordered the fish tacos, with Mahi, excellent, would definitely order it again. Service was alittle slow. But, overall a great experience.

Wish we had tried the Sea Witch sooner during our vacation time in Carolina Beach! After a day of sightseeing in Wilmington we stopped in to grab a quick supper and ended up staying until 11PM! Upon our arrival, we were greeted with a wonderful server, found the casual, relaxed atmosphere very relaxing, enjoyed the live music, and met some... More

This was our first visit there, but we've been several times since we have moved to Carolina Beach. The Seawitch is a divey, beach "tiki" bar and restaurant near the boardwalk in Carolina Beach. It is kind of sticky, sandy and has cheap, low-end kind of seating. Beer flows freely and quite a bit ends up on the floor as... More
