We really enjoyed our dinner at Mr. P's - do make reservations, because they are only open for dinner and it fills up quickly. the food and service were perfect, and we definitely plan to return!

Everytime I go to Southport, I always go to Mr. P's. The food is really delicious, Southern seafood (but they have more than just seafood). The fried green tomatoes are the best, when they're on the menu. They always have good specials, and you can find something for everyone. They have really good Bloody Mary's too, topped off with an... More

The food and staff are alway great! You can order a full meal or a hambuger or sandwich. Their tuna app with capers is wonderful. I have been to one of their wine dinners and would recommend it! The food and wine pairring was excellent!

We visited 7/11/14 and had a very mixed experience. First we were ignored for drink orders - the table that came in 10 minutes later had their drink orders taken first. My wife finally got the hostess to find our waitress. Drink orders were finally taken (another 5 minutes) and then served (another 5 minutes). Food was ordered and delivered.... More

The restaurant was full and we'd had a reservation. Our server was also assigned to a large party in another room. It took a bit of time for water, a long time for drinks, and forever for dinner. They need more servers. The food was good.

Nice place not very private but there are a few booths that are better...food was great steamed clams very well prepared. Prime rib with a crab cake was great as was the Tile fish special stuffed with crab meat. Dessert, Pecan pie....amazing! Prices are on the higher end...but worth it.

We were celebrating my husband's birthday. Called the day of and got a reservation for 5pm. Ordered a White Russian and a LIT. Both were very good. I ordered the surf and turf. It was a crab stuffed lobster tail and filet medallions. OMG to die for. Seriously one of the best meals I have had ever. I forget what... More

My family ages 21 to 81 enjoyed this restaurant. Soft shell crabs were tasty, and my dad was thrilled to see Oysters Rockafeller on the menu. Fish (black drum, freshly caught) was cooked perfectly. Attentive, knowledgable service. Nice change of pace from the standard eastern NC seafood restaurant with its bland fried seafood.
