We just stayed for the weekend and was looking for a place close to restaurants. We had been to Fish House before and was happy to find that their food was just as good if not better than before.

This restaurant was right across the street from our rented beach house so we enjoyed being able to walk to it and not have to drive far for delicious food. The first night I had the hot and sour shrimp, excellent and a large portion so I was able to take some back for snacking later. Hubby had the shrimp... More

Usually when there's something "fishy" going on, it's not a good thing, But at the Fish House, it's a great thing! We vacation at Oak Island every year and every year we ALWAYS make at least one trip to the Fish House Restaurant. We love it! We usually go around 5pm, when it opens, and there has never been a...

My favorite on Oak Island for many years. Food still good, but quality of wait staff has gone down hill. Long waits for service combined with non friendly waitress and reception brings this long time favorite into question. Many gimmicks being used to extract additional money, now charging for bread and questioning your request for tartar sauce and better. Hard... More

Quite a wait on Saturday night but well worth it for a delicious meal! Fresh crab cake and flounder with some creamy cole slaw. Tuesday night with no wait for more of the same! Fish House is the best!

Our party of thee waited over an hour for a table and it was well worth it. We enjoyed waiting outside and watching the boats and the sunset. We had great service once we were seated and a wonderful meal. We could just not eat it all. We started with the crab dip that is the best I have had... More

Should have used my better judgement and STAYED AWAY! Picked up to go ordet in bar. Was overcharged $27 . The help acted like they were doing us a favor and when we left we heard the bar tender and idiot manager say, "that's tourists for ya". REALLY? You simple fools. TOURISTS are your bread and butter!

While staying at Blue Water Point, the Fish House is our "go to" dinner spot, I must admit the lines are long to get in, but we order by phone and pick up since we are staying next door, the portions are great, the quality is superb and it's delicious! Highly recommend this! This picture is my lovely lady on... More

The hostess was absolutely rude & we will never set foot in this restaurant again as long as she is there. No clue as to why the restaurant owner would allow such a presence at the front door. The wait staff was delightful & the food just fine but the hostess is sure to ruin your dining experience.

This is a great little place. The wait staff are great and the food is outstanding. You have a great view and a little place to walk your dinner off. Come early because it fills up fast.
