Heard good things so we thought we'd give it a try. Hostess was unsure what was served at Tiki bar with view so we stayed in restaurant area to have dinner. Took about 10 minutes to see waiter, hostess did not inform him we were there. We began with crab dip, they were accommoadating by giving us corn chips since... More

At least once per visit here, we pick the nicest day and plan lunch out on the end of their pier. A fruity drink ($$) or cup of rose and the crab cake sandwich are just plain great. The view is awesome and with an ocean breeze, you may be inclined to linger and have another drink. The wait staff... More

The variety of food served will satisfy meat eaters, fish eaters, and vegetarians (the bean burger is perfect). The staff is friendly and informative and the food wonderful.

Always a highlight of our visits to Carolina Beach. Cold beers, tasty bar food, and right on the beach.

The location is perfect for this Bar and Grill, but the food is just average. There is a great view of the ocean as you drink and/or dine. I felt that the price was a little high for the quality of the food.

We always go to hang out on the pier-like outside bar. The inside restaurant seems nice, but I like to be right there on the beach, especially at sunset. Great staff.

Great Views! Great Food! Reasonably priced. Almost every table has a view of the ocean, and if yours doesn't just walk out to the tiki bar on the pier. Your kids can go down the steps to the beach while you sip a before-dinner drink at the tiki bar. My wife and son LOVED the soft shell crab! My daughter... More

This place has a variety of food so most anyone can eat there. Wait staff is awesome and attentive. Views of the ocean depending on where you sit.

Out on what's left of a pier is the Tiki Bar. Craft beer, umbrella drinks and food from the restaurant that owns it. Friendly people and quick food service. Ate their 3 times on my last trip. Only place that is actually on the water.

2 of 3 fish sandwiches were so fishy tasting they weren't eaten but were taken home for cats! ` Waiter didn't bring silverware or napkins and they were out of the first beer on the menu. Will not go back.
