Probably our fault for not looking at the menu before we came, but fried was pretty much your only option for seafood here. Shrimp were way overdone and rubbery, the oysters I had were just batter. Nothing seemed fresh which is a HUGE disappointment being...More

The quality of food was absolutely horrible! The shrimp was no more than bagged shrimp from the Walmart that was boiled until it was soggy...doesn't matter if it was breaded, cocktail, no flavor. The broiled flounder was just plain bad. It was not even edible....More

Bowman is a great family restaurant. The seafood is always hot and fresh. It is a true value and you get plenty of food and a big variety. The servers a nice and very friendly. I very much enjoyed my dining experience.

If you enjoy fried seafood then Bowman's is worth a try! With a party of 2 we did not have to wait to be seated, and our waitress was attentive. Large portions with a reasonable price. This was my second time at Bowman's, and I...More

Lots of bad reviews, but we found the service to be outstanding. We went on a packed Friday night of a holiday weekend and waited for less than 5 minutes. Parking was bad, but the service was great. It is not fancy. It is pretty...More

As a recent transplant to Carolina Beach Bowman's had become an early favorite. We've dined in twice, good burgers; and done delivery- one of very few delivery options we've found. Now, on the 4th, with a husband and child in bed under the weather- they...More
