Stopped in with close friends who are local and have been telling us good things about the place. We were not at all disappointed. Good beer selection, very friendly service, and delicious fare. The dusted fried oysters were fresh and tasty, the seafood po boy with cod and shrimp was sumptuous, and the B K oysters were so good we... More

This is a super local spot, small and a bit hard to find but right on the main drag in Southport. Very friendly folks with quick service. Menu is adult food driven, Moms need to leave the kids at home or take them to McDonalds. I'm just saying . . Fairly limited seating, the bar works well for service and... More

This small place (6 tables plus bar) is on the corner of a strip mall and we probably would have driven right past without even seeing it if we had not seen the listing on tripadvisor. We stopped for an early dinner after a day at Southport before heading back to Topsail Island. Their menu offers a little bit of... More

the food here is very good but when you walk in and are told if you are only two people, you must sit at the bar (because they save the tables for larger groups) is an immediate turn off. How about the 4 tops who came in after me wait at the bar for 15 min and run up a... More

While me and a friend shopped, the guys snuck in and enjoyed great beers and conversation with the owner, who is originally from CT!

I had the Mahi fish tacos (blacked) and a draft. The tacos were very good. The staff is friendly. I would go back. It is on the smaller side and in a strip mall, but don't let that dissuade you. They have been open for years. I like it!

Best place in Southport. Staff is fabulous and so many great menu choices!!! Blackened Tuna Taco's are to die for and if you are lucky enough to go the night when Bird's Nest Chow Mein is a special, just say Amen!!!

When traveling through Southport to get to Sunset Beach, I used Tripadvisor to help locate a good restaurant and boy did we find a good one. My husband and I got the Tuna Tacos, so fresh and wonderful and even though they do not have a kids menu, the Fish and Chips were right up my son's alley. Loco Jo's... More
