We stopped for a drink after walking around Southport. The drinks are cold and the views are perfect. Kids are welcome before 7. Mine enjoyed a Shirley Temple while watching the boats go by.

Great 270 degree view of the Cape Fear River and Southport Marina. Visit either before or after dining at a restaurant in the Yacht Basin as no food is served. Also, amazing sunset views are a standard offering.

Great bar, great staff and great drinks, all directly over the Intracoastal Waterway (and I really mean directly over the water). Patrons there were very friendly locals & tourists alike. Believe it or not, I saw very few folks (if any) texting or glued to their phones during my 2 visits in 2 days. Genuine good-time pub atmosphere. Sunsets are... More

......had a great time here with a group of friends. The view is great, the beer ice cold and the mixed drinks outstanding. I was not expecting such well-made drinks at a casual bar like American Fish Company, but they were very good. Nice beer and whisky selection too. The atmosphere is super friendly and a great mix of people.... More

This establishment is primarily a bar directly on the waterfront. Only snacks and bar food are served. Location is great in warm weather since it is all open.

This is a pretty large outside friendly dockside bar. It is perfect for an after dinner drink, and to watch the sunset from a raised adirondack chair.

No food here, just drinks, beer was $4.00. Seems a lot of locals come here to meet up. Not much sitting room, mostly standing out on piers over the water. Great place to wait for restaurants nearby. $1.00 for yearly membership, which is a NC thing.,

This is a beautiful place to view a sunset in Southport. 270 degree view of the harbor with a nice bar and deck.

Great service for drinks, but we were fooled into thinking this was a restaurant. The Frying Pan was right next door and the locals recommended it. they are owed by the same people.3 stars for the "restaurant". 5 stars for the bar.
