The Fish House Grill is located on the foot of the Wrightsville Beach Drawbridge, and has been a Wilmington institution for generations of hungry, seafood loving patrons. The idyllic setting perfectly complements the extensive and seafood-heavy menu, allowing diners to relax and enjoy a sea breeze along with a seafaring meal.

The menu boasts just about everything you’d expect from a solid seafood restaurant and then some. Diners can start out their meal with a starter or salad, like the tuna bites with mango chipotle barbecue or the Gorgonzola walnut salad with seafood add-ons, or can dive right into the extensive list of main dishes. There’s a nice selection of seafood platters, including shrimp, oysters, flounder, and fish and chips, as well as a hearty choice of primarily seafood-based tacos and sandwiches. Land fans have not been forgotten, as the Fish House Grill features a modest selection of burgers, and there’s also a kids’ menu for younger patrons. Meals and drinks can be enjoyed inside, or on the seasonal outdoor deck which overlooks the water and a wealth of boats easing in and out of the local marinas.

Coastal through and through, the Fish House Grill offers solid seafood with a picturesque atmosphere by the water.
