    CFSC is one of our favorites - I am always very happy with the entire experience, but mostly with the food! Four of us dined this last time and all dishes were very good - flavorful, prepared correctly, and not overcooked. The seasonal menu, both the starter and the catfish, were great, and the stuffed flounder was fabulous. The Key Lime pie for desert was lovely. The beignets were the only disappointment - way too heavy and undercooked, tough, and not enough powered sugar. But everything else was great. Service was very good, and our table (reserved here) was ready within 2 minutes of our arrival (lots of other people in the tiny lobby waiting for tables).

    Dinner was excellent, and our out-of-town guests, coming for seafood, left contented. I thought the lobster mac 'n cheese was nice but nothing to Tweet about, but the ordinary house salad had some pleasant surprises. Everyone else was content. Noise level was a little high, but for a busy Saturday, it was an agreeable two hours.

    The food taste was just ok. Nothing compared to the hype. Didn't need to drive all the way there. Potatoes too salty couldn't eat them. Mahi Mahi (catch of the day) got it blackened but was bland. Mango salsa .... really ... a few small chunks of under ripe mango with nothing added to it. The service seemed rushed. The margaritas were very sour. The price seemed high for what you got ... quality not quantity

    Cape Fear offers something for everyone. Small plates, good soups, specials, appetizers, some of the most inexpensive seafood baskets around and expertly fixed full dinners. Last night the Special fried catfish with collards and the oyster basket were both really good. Reasonable priced wines.

    This place never disappoints! The food and service are always phenomenal! Unfortunately due to their popularity we were seated in the overflow room which lacks a little ambience but that very minor matter is the only issue. I highly recommend this restaurant to everyone!

    Food was nothing special. Should have gone with fried seafood. Slaw was really good. Service sucked. Waiter to busy running his mouth. Screwed up order 3 times. Could barely stand to be in same room. Very creepy. Did not inform sides cost extra with pasta entree. Way to expensive. Meh. Would not ever choose to back.

    Excellent food and service at this restaurant. The bread served was hot and the drink I ordered was also done very well. The scallops I ordered were cooked to perfection! The dining room is a good size, but the restaurant itself is in a strip mall. But we would refer others to go. Our waitress was truly exceptional and fun (I think her name was Amy). Thanks for a great dining experience!

    Food was great and so was the service. Ordered broiled shrimp and the waitress brought it out and said the chef was not pleased with with the amount of time it was cooked and said another order was on the way. Now this was without any complaints from us. We ate both servings....Both were great and we really appreciated them being so concerned about pleasing us which they certainly did. Great place and great food.....

    My family of 4 thoroughly enjoyed our meals at Cape Fear Seafood Company. The seafood was fresh and seasoned perfectly. Our server was extremely knowledgeable about the menu which led us to our excellent food choices. The restaurant was quiet and not crowded which we also loved. Every future visit to Carolina Beach will definitely include a dinner at Cape Fear Seafood Company!
