Best Calabash Resturant not mostly seafood.

Seafood is good and not the Calabash style. Other dishes are very good and in the Mediterranean style. Good service but a little noisy. .

I thought the restaurant was quite pricey for Italian food! Service was good. Im typing this part in because my description has to be 100 characters

Was introduced to Grapevine 15 years ago by a local friend who had a Furniture Store in Calabash. Hadn't been back in at least 8 years and pleased to report it still is great. Spoke to the owner and complimented his food and improvements in the atmosphere. A great surprise in Calabash when you don't want fried Seafood!

The food is generally very good, but the place is noisy and the waitresses are rushed. One in our party did not get food for long after the rest of us. The soup was lukewarm, but the rest of our meals were good.

Probably the priciest eatery in Calabash but with the food to back it up. Excellent fish and pasta dishes. The owner, Mac is always there giving his personal attention to the food and service. A very active bar locale.

A staple of the Seafood Capital, very good service and hospitality. A nice basil chicken soup and fried flounder. Nicest portion of flounder I've had in Calabash, and I've tried most of them. The staff is friendly and knows the menu. The charm of this location, food and service makes it a great informal stop for a Calabash experience.

We were pleasantly surprised with the quality of food and the great service. The place was packed when we arrived but the service was fast and the waitress was very friendly and attentive. We stopped here because we didn't want a calabash dinner - what did we order - calabash. However, the seafood was very lightly battered and it was... More

Grapevine Restaurant & Lounge is a slightly upscale restaurant and bar. Typical Calabash restaurants focus on FRIED seafood. Grapevine has a good variety of food. Wife had Mediterranean Pasta dish which was very good. I had a Neptune special which was a fillet steak with shrimp and scallops also very good. Small loaf of bread come with a tasty dipping...

Celebrated my birthday at Grapevine last night. I grew up in Calabash and I have tried almost every seafood restaurant down on the waterfront, but never went to Grapevine. I always passed it, always saw cars out front and I've always been curious to see the inside and taste the food. First of all our server was very very very... More

Nice casual restaurant - daily lunch specials are delicious and inexpensive - their Caesar Salad with fried oysters is the best anywhere - you will like it here.
