Second visit to Fishy Fishy. No complaints on either visit. Scenery is waterfront outside. Service prompt, not rushed and pleasant servers. Food was hot, delivered quickly and good size portion. Don't miss this place...

Great spot on the water, cute restaurant - wanted to like it.... But, I've never heard of peel and eat shrimp that comes dripping in a really hot and not so good sauce - pretty disappointed. We were there in the off season on a Sunday night so not much open and not many choices!!

The hushpuppies were amazing and I may go back just for that! The entrees were nothing special, but it was a Saturday night and a live band was playing super crowded! May have been because of the rush not sure but I was disappointed with the food especially after the best hush puppies I may have ever had!!

Always make the effort to stop for lunch or supper. Absolutely love the atmosphere and outdoor seating. Food is great as well. Had shrimp basket and got my money's worth. This place holds special memories for me and my BFF. And who can resist saying they ate at the Fishy Fishy Cafe..???!!!

I enjoyed lunch here twice and enjoyed it very much! The View is Outstanding! Your right on the water so you can taste the salt in the air, and the birds & fish playing within feet of your table is very entertaining for adults & children alike!! They have an area where you can dine with your pet! They bring... More

I love visiting small towns and the local fare. I fell in love with Southport when I watched Safe Haven. It is an adorable little town. Absolute must see. We found Fishy Fishy just off the beaten path on the edge of town and it was phenomenal. We went for lunch as the last ferry is at 5. Fish tacos... More

We enjoyed relazing early dinner with fresh seafood in this charming dockside restaurant. Fresh and delicious! Will definitely go back.

We have eaten many times at FishyFishy, but the last time 2 weeks ago may be the real last time. Three out of four orders were wrong. One was wrong twice! The work assignment of our waiter was ridiculous--our table the farthest from the door in the main dining room under hottables in the annex, the farthest from ours possible.... More

My wife and I had lunch and Bloody Mary's at Fishy Fishy one afternoon. The food was very good, the service great, the atmosphere a lot of fun, the Bloody Mary's, top shelf. Located right on the Cape Fear River, it's a wonderful place to spend a couple of hours on a nice day.
