It's in a strip shopping center and it's relatively small but BOY, it is absolutely the BEST! David, our Server, was very personable and knowledgeable of the menu. I tried the smaller version of their shrimp and grits and, honestly, I think it was the...More

Do call ahead seating. This little gem is the best seafood in town. Scallops the very best I have ever eaten. You may have to wait a while to get in but it is worth it.

We asked at the hotel for a nice Fish restaurant and we were recommended Fish Bites. The food was great and extremely good value for money. If you want a good recommendation then I would not hesitate to recommend this restaurant.

The first time we went the wait staff was pleasant and efficient enough but looked sloppy. Aprons low, too tight clothes that were not flattering. Some may thin it doesn't matter but it affects the experience. The food was... okay. The fried food had not...More

I really enjoy quality food, and to me Fish Bites is among the best! Food is always fresh, tasty, and service is great. Easy to miss - look for the Exxon sign!

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.
