Good seafood- as expected

Ok service and seafood- bit pricey- no wait which was odd as there was a wait at other places in the area---tip off? Would I return- prob not. Not super impressed as it was nothing special for the $$

Nice to dine right on the water. But on any sunny day beware the direct sunlight if there's no breeze blowing. Fairly broad menu choice.

Been here several times. My favorite waiter in town, Eddie, used to work here. Food is decent. Nothing to brag about except for Philly cheese steak that they only have at lunch. Service is what we always went back for. Went back for the first time since Eddie's leaving yesterday and service was less than ideal. Was there with 5... More

We were doing a day visit of Southport and decided to have lunch at this eatery. The view, being right on the water, is awesome. Our orders consisted of seafood, salad, burger, and a Reuben. Everything was very good! I highly recommend the October Fest draft beer! We will be back!

I saw the bad reviews but a local person suggested we eat here so we took a chance. We were seated right away and had a lovely lunch. The waitress was excellent and friendly. The food was a bit overpriced but the water view made it worth it. I will return again.

My wife and I stopped by for an early dinner at about 4:45 on a Saturday evening. We got seated and served right away. Our server was Pip and her trainee Mitchell. We started with a couple of specialty drinks and some tea. I ordered the Blackened Grouper Basket, which came with a choice of “Planks” (fries) or coleslaw. I... More

This restaurant was one of my favorite places to eat, when visiting southport. Not anymore! I ordered a salad with grilled fish. The fish tasted like mush and salty. Salad was not good at all. Big chunks of leaf. Just awful! cost: $20.00. It was not good enough to eat. When I told the waiter, he said I ate half... More

We were in Southport for a wedding and decided to get lunch before the ceremony. We were told it would be a 25-30 minute wait, no problem. We were expecting that since it was dead center of lunchtime. We ended up only waiting about 15 minutes. We were seated right next to the water and there was a nice breeze... More

We have been going to Southport for years and somehow never visited this restaurant. We stopped in for lunch and I promise we'll be back. The food was excellent. The tuna steak sandwich was the best I've ever had. Prices were reasonable for the quality of the food. Staff was friendly and service was prompt. We were seated right on... More

Love the Yacht basin. Food is always excellent, fresh, and consistent. They seem to be shorthand often which can be aggravating when you've waited 45 mins for a table. To bad they are battling the town and surrounding business owners who are stifling their business plans. Very biased and unfair. Don't give up Jill!
