Calabash and the other beaches along the NC coast offer many offerings for seafood, but this Greek specialty restaurant is a hidden gem. The owner is almost always on site to ensure great fiord and service. A full bar awaits at the rear if the restaurant. The menu offers several selections and portions are more than enough....service is good. The... More

My wife & I visited Grapevine for the first time last evening and had a really nice experience. We went to the establishment about 5pm on Thursday evening and we sat at the bar. We were immediately greeted by the bartender, Rhonda. Our first impression was: "this place is really nice inside". We have passed and always saw lots of... More

You can't go wrong eating at the Grapevine Restaurant in Calabash, NC. The food is EXCELLENT. The owner always makes you feel at home. There is always a variety of rotating dishes. One of my favorites is the pork kabobs Mediterranean/Greek style. Every time I visit the Myrtle Beach or Sunset Beach area I always have a dinner at the... More

Just had dinner at Grapevine. In a word...excellent! The decor is clean and crisp...noise level was minimum and conversation was easy. No wait at 6:30 pm on a summer Sunday. I had the two item Calabash (flounder and oysters). The fish and oysters(12) were lightly battered and cooked perfectly. My wife had the prosciutto pasta w/ scallops and shrimp. The... More

Each of the four of us found our meals delicious. Standouts were the grilled grouper and the ahi tuna. Excellent drinks from the bar, friendly service, lively ambience that was not too loud. Highly recommended.

We recently dined at Grapevine for the first time on our visit to Ocean Isle Beach. We arrived on the early side for dinner service and enjoyed an almost empty dining room. Our waitress was friendly and attentive throughout the meal. I'd love to see more vegetarian options but the food was delicious and the presentation was delightful. Clearly a... More

We visited Grapevine based on TripAdvisor reviews. They don't take reservations during the summer season, but we were looking for an early dinner and were seated when we arrived by friendly staff. The appetizers and main entrees were delicious. A limited wine selection, but those they offer are good choices to compliment a nice meal. The food was fresh, delicious... More

Our pre-dinner cocktail at the bar was served in a lively, fun atmosphere and set the stage for dinner. The five in our party had a variety of dishes, from an Italian-style Hamburger, Seafood, to Pasta . Server was friendly and timely. Food was excellent as usual.

Went to Grapevine based on reviews. The staff is welcoming and friendly. The food was good but will say there was lots of garlic. Prices are very good and it was crowded but staff handled it well. Ask for specials, waitress didn't offer it up although she was very nice.

Another "perfect" dinner at Grapevine. Take a break from the fried "Calabsh" style restaurants and enjoy their Mediterranean menu options. Service is tops. We always have Grapeview at the top of our list while vacationing at SB or OIB.
