Several weeks ago we ended up at Taylor's for dinner. It turned out to be a very pleasant surprise. The fried chicken was the best I have had in the twelve years living in Southport. Their sweet potato fries are very tasty and really taste like sweet potatoes. Our friends had specialty salads featuring fresh local fruits and vegetables that... More

Stopped in for lunch. Our waitress was friendly and attentive. The food was really,really good. We had fried green beans and the breading was perfect, very light and crispy. I had the fried chicken special with fried okra and cucumbers and onions. All of it was fantastic. My wife had the Rueben and it was very good as well. They... More

We always visit Taylor's while in Southport. Not a big restaurant but don't let that fool you. Everything we have ever ordered has been delicious. Awesome Fried Chicken, Salads, and my favorite side is the black eyed peas. Just like all the other restaurants arrive early and expect to wait for a table. Excellent wait staff who gives great service.... More

My family ate here on our departing day of our beach vacation. We lucked out and were seated immediately, the place was full. It is a small place and everything is cooked to order so your wait time is a little longer than most places. However the wait time is well worth it. I had sweet potato pancakes, they were... More

Wife and I always make a point to eat here during summer vacation time. Sausage and gravy biscuits are first class effort, and the grits are delicious as well. We need to try other dishes in the future but why mess with success?

We were excited to try this new restaurant and very hungry after boating all day. Servers were nice and we got seated right away. I ordered the fried chicken salad (since they are known for their fried chicken) but the chicken was dry, hard and took way too long to chew. I think because we arrived at 8:30 (1/2 hour... More

Ordered the ribs last night. Huge racks came out but they had been cut wrong so I couldn't cut them. I tried to slice a little off the top and they were horrible, fatty and unfavorable. The server said they were cut wrong and offered to bring me something else which she did. However. Since I have never been served... More

If the evidence on the wall wasn't enough (pictures of Taylor with every Food Network chef known to man!), the sights and smells of the food when you walk in will show you that you're in the right place! There are always a handful of specials, she mades amazing salads (the one with goat cheese and blueberries is a local... More

We were headed down the road to Locals but noticed Taylor Cuisine Cafe was open. We were thrilled as we expected it to be closed on Sunday like most places in southport. Glad we made the U-Turn. Must try the Lemonade - can you say yum???? Between the Chicken and Waffle and Eggs Florentine I can't decide which was better.... More

This establishment has grown into a tradition each year while at the beach with friends. The food is always well prepared and is presented nicely. The food is flavorful and service is outstanding. The wait staff is very welcoming and attention is paid to detail. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone who wants and appreciates good food.
