This restaurant focuses on fresh seafood and is outstanding in variety and freshness. Chef has created a distinct menu serving delicious food. Desserts and cocktails are on point as well. If visiting the beach, this spot is worth the ten minute drive!

We stopped in for lunch. We wanted some fresh seafood and that is what we got. The menu was adequate for all sizes of appetites. My husband got a shrimp wrap and I got a crab Sammie. The waitstaff was friendly and helpful. The food came out hot and delicious. We will stop back again.

We love Fish Bites, and go often. They have daily specials including lobster night and all is good, both food and drinks. I love their seafood pasta dish, and can never eat it all in one sitting, so I get the bonus of having it twice!

The shrimp and grits was a fried (hard) patty of grits on top of a creamy Parmesan sauce. The Grits we're not creamy at all, and my... More

I had lunch there on the way to the beach. Was looking to trying a local seafood place that has been well reviewed. The restaurant is easy to locate. The wait staff was very friendly and helpful pointing out their signature plates. I started with the lobster bisque. It is the bisque that attracted me to Fish Bites. It was... More

The food was very good. The seafood was fresh and cooked just right. Make sure you try the zucchini fries.

It's a good place for a date. Has great food. It's a small restaurant so expect a wait. It's not cheap.
