LOVE this restaurant! It's my second time eating here, this time for dinner and the time before lunch. I had the diner special (ginger crusted tuna, Jasmine rice, zucchini/squash/onion meledy) and it was AMAZING! I highly recommend this cute little restaurant!

Stopped in here for a late lunch one day. The flounder platter was great. I ate at the bar and my service was easily above average. In my four days in tow this is my best meal by far.

The Fish House is a casual fare restaurant with great food, drinks and terrific atmosphere. We loved sitting outside and watching the boats on the intercostal waterway as we enjoyed crab dip and Red Drum (rum) Punch.

Crab dip was very very good, great view. Also had tuna wrap, tuna wasn't seasoned very much, but was still good. Lemon pepper fries were the best though!

The patio view is beautiful. Food was pretty good, though I've definitely had better salmon. Buffalo shrimp was delicious. Waiter was friendly and attentive. Not from the Wilmington area,but I might return again.

Outside patio is nice for the view, and the food was pretty good as well. Service was good, and overall it is a good choice for a meal and a drink.
