The food I had was very good, but boiled or broiled are not my favorite. There was no option for fried, so I just had crab cake and clam chowder. It would be nice to have the option.

The chowder was the best. Pay a dollar more and get the bowl rather than the cup. The Penne Rachelle with Shrimp and Scallops was wonderful. The service and the ambiance was terrific. A perfect seafood restaurant.

The we had the Crabcake Sandwich which came with potato chips, cole slaw, a little tub of homemade sauce for... More

My daughter recently moved to Kure Beach so we decided to try this seafood restaurant. It was pricey for the quality of food served. Our shrimp were mushy and appeared to be the "processed/bagged" type. Not what you would expect from a beach area. The food in general was terrible. The drinks very weak and full of ice. I would...

Went in on a Saturday for lunch and ordered crab legs. The food was fresh and cooked to perfection, the service was great we never had to ask for anything at all and the price was very comparable to all the other restaurants. The only thing I would add would be to add French fries to the menu but other... More

Recently took a Condo hunting trip to Carolina Beach. Of course we wanted to sample the seafood restaurants in the area. Well, we found good one, Michael's Seafood. The food and service were excellent. Their Chowder is excellent, make sure you try it. We are light eaters so we split a plate of fresh fish of the day, Sheep's Head.... More
