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.

Food was excellent. I was pleasantly surprised to find a Greek restaurant in the area. Visited 3 times during past 3 visits to the area. I will definitely go again.

Throwing Feta cheese and kalamata olives into a few things does not make it Mediterranean. This place isn't even truly Italian. We wondered why it wasn't crowded on a busy Friday night, but quickly learned. Very disappointing!!

This restaurant has a slight upscale atmosphere and menu from the town of Calabash known for its deep fried menus. Nice salads. Nice wait staff and bar. Parking can be an issue if busy

Great personalized service. Christine made our meal a special experience . The food was the best Calabash style we experienced on our vacation. Seared tuna was perfect. Southern fried chicken wings tickeled the palate. A must to include when you are here.

The shrimp I was served was too salty for my taste but the manager (owner?) told me I was wrong. He's got a bevy of local, adoring fans and I guess that's what fuels him. My friends and I were stunned by his behavior.

Grapevine offers the perfect atmosphere for winding down after a day at the beach. There is a cozy, intimate feel to this restaurant and the staff greatly compliments this. You feel welcomed from the moment you walk in the door, and if you should be so lucky to have Matthew as your waiter, it continues through out the evening. The... More

About once a month we meet friends from Wilmington, NC for lunch in Calabash, NC which is somewhat halfway between us. Our favorite meeting place is the Grapevine. They have an absolutely delicious lunch menu which changes daily. My hands down favorite is their tilapia sandwich. It's covered with a delicious herb rub and served with curly fries (not at...
