From its strip mall location, this place delivers for a broad range of palates. Their seafood is always fresh and their specials really are special. It’s not very big, so understand there may be a wait at peak hours. I go there most frequently for...More

We love Fish Bites! It is great for a quick meal for lunch or dinner. Tuna salad is fresh tuna, not canned. Mussels are divine, as are many of their other dishes. Fish tacos among the best ever! We have never had a bad experience...More

I do not live close to Fish Bites, so I do not go often. About every other month, when in the area, I mosey in to have seafood. The menu needs an overhaul. And the quality is very unreliable. Regretfully I have decided not to...More

We stumbled across this gem while looking for oysters on the half shell. We stopped in and were warmly greeted by the staff. We were in Wilmington looking for a home to retire to from the cold, snowy Northeast. Our server was also a 'transplant'...More

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.
