A must.

The fish, pasta, & bread are fabulous. The owner is very friendly & makes sure each table is having a wonderful experience. You'll feel like a local in no time flat!

Arrived at 8pm, party of 8, 1 child. Seated at 8:40. Never saw a waiter until 9. Received some of our drinks, weren't able to order until 9:15. At that point, there were only 3 tables with larger parties (around 8+) in the entire restaurant. Had a four year old with us, she totally passed out, she was starving. Asked... More

We've been going to the Grapevine for close to 10 years now, I go alone even if my wife isn't traveling with me. Mac runs a great spot, lunches are excellent, and dinners even better. We've also just stopped in to the bar for a drink, the atmosphere is really friendly and relaxed, love the staff! Needed a lunch spot... More

We got to the restaurant at 4:00 on a weekday and were basically the only people in there. Everyone in the family loved their food. My wife got a typical fried meal and everything was done just perfect (not too much bread, not over cooked or under cooked). I got a Mediterranean pasta seafood meal and a beef/mushroom soup....really good.... More

We have been patrons of this restaurant for many years on our annual family visits to Ocean Isle Beach, and, generally, we have found the food to be of decent quality at a decent price. However, on our last visit an incident occurred at the restaurant that has compelled me to give the establishment a negative review. We came as... More

We went here after every other restaurant had lines out the door but this place had no wait. The seafood special was overrcooked (x 2) and reminiscent of Long John Silvers. The salmon salad was ok, interesting toppings but again, the salmon was overcooked. The only item that was good was the chicken kabobs, and the veggies were cooked al... More

We ate here while on vacation in neighboring Sunset Beach. The food was excellent. I had the special of Tilapia and scallops which was delicious, my wife had the filet mignon and my son had linguine asiago. All the food was cooked perfectly. The issue came with service, and the restaurant was maybe half full. Our server started out ok,... More

If you want good seafood in Calabash think about the Grapevine. You can get traditional Calabash Fried Seafood here but they also have excellent dishes which are not friend. You pay more but you get what you pay for in regards to quality food and service.
