On a return trip to Wilmington my wife and I stated that we HAD to return to Fish Bites. Its in a strip shopping center and is easy to miss, but find it. We made it our lunch location this day. I started with their signature lobster bisque which was delicious and not too thick. My lunch portion of Grouper which came with slaw as the side was to DIE for!! My wife tried the lunch catch tuna which she said was delicious. Hers was served with fresh sauteed veggies as requested. The portions were ample for lunch but kind of high priced. However, the freshness of the seafood makes up for it. They also sell the seafood they serve which is a plus if you're looking for fresh fish. Soft shell crabs were in season, however I hesitated getting them for fear of how to transport live crabs back to Raleigh (since we weren't leaving for a few days). The waitstaff was delightful and prompt and checked on us often. You have to try this place while in Wilmington if you like seafood. Just superb!

We both had a shrimp basket with fries. Lots of shrimp! We had the crab and shrimp dip also. Everything was great as usual.
