Great seafood at reasonable prices at off water location. Large portions so share a plate if you have a small appetite. They will accommodate that. Really good food. Easy, simple, casual atmosphere. Our go to place for affordable seafood.

Food was ok for fried seafood. They don't offer many sides. Need more variety and maybe some healthier options. Nice large portions. Staff was very friendly.

If you like fried seafood, this place is great. Not very fancy, just good seafood at a great price. Consistently good. Friendly staff. Clean. Simple menu, but they do a great job. I have only tried the fried entrees, so can't comment on the broiled choices. Shrimp, scallops, and flounder are all very good. Servings are generous and a good... More

I recently went to Something Fishy for the first time based on a recommendation from a friend. The restaurant is simple but clean and the service was friendly and prompt. The shrimp were cooked perfectly and overall it was a very nice experience. I only wish the hushpuppies and fries were hot when they came out.

This place has been around for years, and it's always good. All of the selections you'll expect from a calabash style restaurant. They have selections for the kids as welk, so make it a family affair. Highly recommended.

Fish over breaded. Left more bread on our plate than we had fish to eat. All the manager did when we complained was say "I'm sorry". Won't be going there again!

Good eating! Fresh seafood. Portion size good, food hot. Not over battered. Service timely. Hush puppies are golden bites of goodness. Prices reasonable.

Have eaten here twice. It was just ok. Menu is simple. Service was great the first time and only average on the second visit. Food, overall was average. Had red velvet cake the first time and it was kind of dry. Love the red potatoes and fried okra. Fried flounder was just ok.

We haven't visited this place in about ten years. Man this place is delicious! We actually forgot where it was because we kinda stumbled on it the first time. We won't be forgetting where it's located this time. It's the best seafood anywhere! Juicy Scallops, Huge Shrimp that's scrumptious, Clam Strips that are just right and not to chewy...Deviled Crab...

This is a terrific seafood restaurant. It's nothing fancy or flashy, just wonderful food at a decent price. The seafood was fresh and the portions were huge. I would recommend this to anyone in the Wilmington area looking for some great seafood without all the frills.
