Very different, decent food and interesting atmosphere

One thing that makes this place different than most is the beer and wine are on the honor system. After ordering your food at the counter, you grab the bottled beer or wine (no draft and limited individual wine servings) and find an open table outdoors (there is no inside dining and the bugs can be... read more

What a great find! We had the lobster ravioli and a seafood combo plate. Both were wonderful! Best lobster ravioli I've ever tasted. The seafood combo was prepared to perfection, and the crab cake was the largest I've ever seen.

Adam was our water. He is personable and extremely efficient. We ordered fish tacos. The fish was pangasus and was as Adam promised. Excellent. This is one of our favorite Southport restaurants. Great views, great service and great food.

We stumbled upon the Yatch Basin Eatery tonight after finding our favorite restaurant next door closed for Easter break. It had a charming atmosphere and we were sold when the menu board said Lobster Bisque on this spring cool evening. We were seated right beside the water on the Yatch basin and had a beautiful view at sunset under cafe... More

Slow service and not many people there. Food was not hot when it was served but we were too hungry to send it back. My daughter and I shared and both had plenty.

We came across the Yacht Basin Eatery by accident. We were on the street checking out the location of the movie Safe Haven and were planning on eating at the Fishy Fish Cafe but walked down the street and decided to eat at Yacht Basin Eatery which was a good move. The food was amazing. Our group order the Lobster... More

Outside dining on the water is always appealing. The food at Yacht Basin Eatery in Southport does not live up to the setting. I had one of the lunch specials, blackened shrimp tacos with black bean/corn salsa. For $13.95 I would have expected more shrimp and less salsa. The salsa totally overwhelmed the shrimp, I couldn't tell if they were... More

Yacht Basin used to be our favorite place in Southport, but after today, I doubt I'll ever go back. My glass was completely empty for half an hour while our waitress visited every table in her section except for us. From the moment our food was dropped off, nobody came to check on us. My food was wrong, and I... More
