Came here on Easter for brunch and we both loved our food!! I had the best banana waffle with really tasteful toppings. Our waitress was also very friendly and our food came out pretty quickly for how busy it was. The atmosphere was great, too; loved the interior design. Highly recommended and will return next time we are in town!

I am here for a conference and wanted to get a very good meal, take out, and not wait long. I found Surf House the first night and went back the second. This is my kind of food - kind of different, not too heavy, fresh and tasty. I enjoyed the tile fish the first night and fish and grits... More

If you like swizzles around your food and really small portions at high prices, this is your place. I would not recommend this bar to a friend. Even the bartender was snooty.

I'm not normally not one to leave bad reviews, but I must be honest. My friends and I were excited to try this restaurant after learning that it was vegetarian and gluten-free friendly. We heard rave reviews from a local resident and decided to splurge a bit and try this place. We started with the brussel sprout appetizer which was... More

This restaurant is for foodies at the beach. The chef uses local ingediants and is creative in both flavor and appearance. Service and food are excellent and quick. Brunch is fanastic.

Service was fantastic, food average, menu limited, price outrageous. 2 adults/2 kids and we paid $223 which included 24 oysters, 4 entrees, 1 glass of wine, 2 sodas, and 1 water - nothing else. We came here because Trip Adviser said oysters are $1 each. Um no - we paid $60 for 24. The menu on Trip Adviser is completely... More

This place is a nice local place to get breakfast. I haven't tried lunch or dinner. Food is fresh and tastt, nice atmosphere. However, food servings are small and not filling. It is defintely overpriced..and I'm not the only local who says this. No specials that I'm aware of for locals. A bit noisy when crowded..hard to hear.

My fiance and I went for appetizers and a drink. We love Carolina Beach's laid back atmosphere but some restaurants leave a little to be desired. This place did not disappoint. We found ourselves reordering over and over again. Each dish was delicious using fresh and local ingredients. Presentation was spot on. The cocktails were no different. Our waiter was... More

My fiancé and I have been called food snobs. We travel often and enjoy cooking. I can honestly say this was one of the top 5 meals of my life! The cocktails were also incredible and the service was outstanding. We will be back sooner than later !
