We ate here today for lunch! It has a great atmosphere and the food is delicious! Our server was good and it is a great view of the waterway. We had the French Dip and it was great! We also tried a Bloody Mary and it was great too. This place is one of the restaurants I have tried in Southport.

I dine here with some family members, and the view is spectacular. The crab soup is delicious as is the French onion. They have a brunch on Sundays, a full bar and upscale dining in the afternoons and evenings.
It's not much for a vegetarian menu, but you will find gluten free items listed in the menu.
The coffee is really strong they make their own desserts and ice cream, and it's a great place to go and eat outside maybe even just have a drink and dessert. It overlooks the Intercoastal Waterway and in the distance Bald Head Island.

Located on the Cape Fear River, the view from the dining room is scenic and beautiful. The food was fabulous. The Crusted Brie and the Filet Steak bitswit the best fries I have ever tasted (I normally am not a french fry person) from the appetizer menu were delicious and certainly enough to be considered a meal. Since I was there for lunch the portions were plenty. Our server was fantastic. She was friendly and knew the menu and even brought another sauce she thought we might like to go with the Brie. Water glasses were always filled and she stopped by many times to make sure we were enjoying our lunch. We were on a day trip from South Carolina but I will make it a point to go the distance just to try some more of the menu fare and for the beautiful views. A definite dining stop.

Not only did we love our food, but the service was friendly and prompt. They gave us just the right amount of attention. The lobster roll is always my husband’s favorite. Their other other sandwiches are good as are the salads.

Dessert lovers: their lemon sorbet is the best I’ve ever had.

It was mid day and we hadn't had lunch so we stopped in at Oliver's. Beautiful day. Property is right on the River/Inter-coastal waterway. Kathy, our server, was pleasant and helpful with the menu items. We had salads, all excellent and exactly what we wanted; not too filling but healthy and delicious. Windows face the water. Outside dining available too.
