Vacationing in Carolina Beach and want good seafood? Go here. Not fancy but very clean restaurant with friendly staff, and VERY good seafood. Lightly breaded served hot with AMPLE portions. Prompt service. Good for famies. Like reviewer previously mentioned, MUCH better than Michael's.

I am in Carolina Beach for work this week (dodged Irma...mostly). I went to Bowman's for supper and was pleased. The fried shrimp was very good, the scallops not quite as good. The servings are good sized and prices are very reasonable. I've never understood...More

The seafood was fresh and very tasty. Almost too much to eat at one sitting so go HUNGRY! Waitresses were friendly and kept the glass full. Short wait for food. Excellent experience.

Bowman's has great fried seafood. We ordered a couple of the combo platters to share. When you don't feel like changing clothes to go out to eat, just get it delivered.

Best fried shrimp and deviled crab! The seafood platters are the best. Even at lunch they give you so much. I don't think it's kid friendly - this is just for seafood lovers! Don't get appetizers - not good. Hush puppies will fill u before...More

Stopped here for the first time, and had a filling lunch in a basic local place very suitable for families. With the exception of the fried clam strips that were way overcooked, the fried fish and oysters were ok. The hushpuppies were excellent.

We went here because my son wanted some fried shrimp. The hushpuppies are fantastic. The shrimp and whiting were great. Portions were huge and enough for 2 meals. My son loved the slaw as he said it was a lot of juice and he could...More
