Mr. P's has great quality food and good service in a casual setting. In addition to some of the best quality local dishes in the area such as shrimp gumbo, low-country crab cakes and pecan pie, it has delicious other American selections such as filet mignon, lobster, salmon, etc,. Prices are reasonble for what you are getting. You will not... More

We had read on trip advisor about this restaurant. Although there was a not so good review, the rest were very good. This restaurant was ranked #1 in Southport and I can see why. The food was delicious, our waiter Addison was delightful and attention everyone. The other staff members were very nice as well. They truly cared that we... More

We were in Southport in February and selected this restaurant from Travel Advisor reviews. We didn't think reservations were necessary in February but made them anyway as they turned out to be necessary. The place was packed. We didn't get off to a good start as we were seated at a two top separated from the main traffic aisle by... More

Finally found Mr. P's after some bad experiences in Southport. Wonderful atmosphere, excellent waitstaff, and an amazing chef makes this place the total package. I had the tuna as an appetizer and then flounder Oscar and all the sides were delicious and perfect. What a treat to see a business doing such a top notch job in a community where... More

Well established bistro with very knowledgable and friendly staff. We immediately felt welcome. Ordered the undergo proud Tuna which was prepared to perfection. We also had 3x3 oysters that were great. Loved it so much we tried to go back the next day but it was closed due to the weather.

Mr. P's is locally owned and has many menu items that reflect Southport's link to the sea. It provides upscale offerings as well as traditional seafood dishes. Atmosphere can be a bit loud. It is a favorite for locals and visitors alike. Stuffed flounder is one of my favorites.

I usually for a variation on a theme of steak for dinner and have yet to be disappointed. I like a nice piece of filet or sirloin, medium on a salad with goat cheese. It is not on the menu and they always make it for me. Love this accommodation.
