Go here every year to pick up our lobster, calamari, and fish for our Christmas Eve and day dinner. It is always fresh and ready to go. They even clean the calamari. The staff is courteous, professional and extremely service oriented. We also go for lunch a couple of times a year. We wish it was closer to our home.

Ordered fish and chips along with their shrimp platter and both were very well prepared. Prices were reasonable and the service was fast and friendly.

Great food with lots of great weekly specials. Also an excellent place for fresh seafood...bought fantastic King Crab legs here for a family Christmas dinner last year at the best price in town.

Haven't been here in a few years, so met some friends for dinner on a Friday night. Place was packed, no where to stand inside, so many hang out outside this strip mall restaurant. The booths are hard benches and the floor is concrete, so the noise level is high. I ordered crab cakes, which were good, but nothing great.... More

We've eaten here several times and every time the food has tasted fresh and well prepared. Service friendly and efficient. The location is deceiving, small strip mall, but well worth a stop. Fish Bites offers a fresh fish market attached to the restaurant. We go here whenever we're in Wilmington and look forward to our next visit

We had our children and it was perfectly fine for all. Our 2 year old especially enjoyed the house corn muffins while waiting.... More

Cute restaurant with an extensive seafood menu. Friendly staff and ice cold beer. Portions are large. The Oyster Rockefeller soup was filling and was made perfect with the addition of hot sauce.
