We visited over the Thanksgiving holiday and were disappointed after reading other reviewers. The service was just average and so was the food. Nothing special or unique.Good service, Inside is very dated. The menu could use a makeover.

When we discovered most of Southport's restaurants closed on a Monday night, we found ourselves in Mr. P's. There was a nice range of offerings on the menu, as well as interesting specials. The wine and beer list was good too. My wife is a vegetarian and was pleased the restaurant catered to her needs. We also liked the fact... More

Always good service and great food. Variety of seafood is the best. and the quality of the food is top notch. We were here to celebrate a birthday and we had a great evening. Our wait staff was great.

My dinner of fresh fish was fine and the serving on the large side, but the decor was dark and made me feel like I was sitting in the late 1970's.

We travel through Southport twice a year and the food here is always excellent. Try the roasted clam with tasso ham appetizer. It is great. Casual atmosphere, good service, great food.

Sometimes vacation towns like Southport slack off during the off season, but Mr. P's Bistro maintains its excellence. The full menu was delightful, but the shrimp and grits appetizer, which I had for an entree, was better than Bill Neal's...and that is an accomplishment .
