We had the caprase salad and the crab dip. Both were excellent! I also ordered a bowl of the gumbo and loved it. For my entree I ordered the underground... More

When you expect a great meal for the money, Mr. P's Bistro is the place in Southport to go. It is highly recommended by locals. Fresh local seafood or steaks are all treated with outstanding care by the kitchen staff and cooked to your specifications.

Mr. P's has its own personality. Local comfort, interesting menu, nice service, and pleasant staff. Food options vary nicely. Would be hard pressed to not find an interesting meal on their menu. Fresh, tasty, very consistent.

I visit Southport a few times a year, and Mr. P's is by far one of my favorite places to eat - whether it's dinner with friends or an intimate date night. Both the appetizers and entrees are out of this world. I make it a point to try something new with each visit to Mr. P's. This time, several... More
