Enjoyed lunch here on our visit to Southport. A delightful surprise twist to the crab cakes we are use too! Loved their sweet potato fries. Even our dogs enjoyed hanging out with us here!

Unless you have a family of kids that plan to only eat pizza, do not eat here. The "kids" menu has 3 items that are all $10.95. THAT IS THE PRICE FOR A SMALL BOWL OF NOODLES AND BUTTER. Even the plate of wings appetizer...More

A few restaurants in a row create a healthy competition, but when the well known ones have lines going around the corner, you'll come to this place! Food was decent and the service was faster than expected! In and out in less than an hour!

I've eaten here in the past and on each of the three occasions had a bad experience. Extremely long wait times, over worked and understaffed wait staff, long waits for drinks and food, wrong orders, and very poor quality food. It's simple, I just don't...More

We keep going back here, usually for lunch, and always eat well. The view is marvelous - right on the intercoastal waterway - and on the Yacht Basin docks next to the Southport pilot boats. Cobb salad huge and delicious, took half home. Grilled cheese...More
