Don't be put off by the low key strip mall facade, this restaurant is on par with the best there is. The interior is small, so on a busy weekend make a reservation. Our server was friendly and informative about the menu and the special. We started with a funky bourbon based cocktail and a mojito, then we tried the avocado smoked trout dip which had a delicate smokey flavor and just a hint of spicy; served on toasted baguette slices, very good. Next we had the grouper special served on black rice and the grilled trout with sweet potato. Both fish were cooked perfectly and the accompanying sides were also. Excellent marriage of flavors. Even though we were stuffed, portions are well sized, we shared a key lime pie cup. Fantastic, most definitely homemade nothing powdered or prepared here. Not a big children's menu, but we did see some teens and preteens with families. Don't miss Surf House on you next trip to the Carolina Beach.
