Not this time. We were seated and quickly attended to by our waitress. Drinks came quickly and the orders were taken smartly. Our food arrived in less... More

Some of the best Maryland Crabcakes in the area. The food is consistent and hearty. The bar is complete and drinks well served.

Recommended by the airport staff at the local airport. Lovely view on the waterway with delicious food. Crab dip was delicious and crab cakes were luscious with minimal filler. My wife had a Mahi sandwich which she will take home as the appetizers were so filling. Very fresh

Dead End has simply the best view in the Southport, Oak Island area. The food is predictable in that it's well made popular food that's served by hard working friendly servers. The bar and the restaurant is designed as a friendly beach place that's fun and enjoyable.

Enjoyed a beer with a friend at the bar. Good time. Lisa, the bartender, kept it lively. Food is good from other visits.

We went here with a large group on a Friday night in the off season, and the staff was overwhelmed. My husband had the French dip, and he said it was delicious, while the fish sandwich I had was dry.

But we really enjoyed the food and the service was very prompt and courteous. Very reasonable wine selection at very reasonable prices, augmented very tasty food offerings.
