We loved sitting outdoors for lunch at this fun nautical-themed eatery. It was fun sitting right up next to the piers and watching the boats come in. My friend and each had the lobster bisque, which we had heard was delicious -- and it did have a good flavor, with sherry peppers. But it arrived lukewarm. The hot tuna croissant... More

My wife and I went for a late lunch, been there several times and the waterfront atmosphere is the best part. This time it took us 10 minutes after being seated before anyone even acknowledged us. We gave our order and waited an hour for our food. When we saw people who came in after us getting their food I... More

What actually happened is that this man phoned me and began making accusations and derogatory comments about a particular employee. He quickly and hysterically informed me that he had contacted an attorney and this was a felony offense. He also explained how we were incredibly busy the day he visited and had to wait an hour for a table, and... More

First time visit for my wife and I. Overall, we had a very good experience. I ordered the Mahi-Mahi Tacos and my wife had a grilled cheese with tomato 7 bacon. We were very pleased with the quality and portion size of each dish. I will agree with most of the comments in regards to the menu being overpriced, but... More

Not sure what to do with this restaurant. We were greeted by a hostess wearing a shirt that said 'Saucy Wench' (which I wasn't ready to explain to my 8 year old) and there is a sign saying it is an Italian restaurant, but there isn't much Italian on the menu. Are we pirates or Italian? Were there any Italian... More

This restaurant is situated next to the water. The outdoor bar is just at the entrance and is definitely a great place to meet the locals, relax with the family, and enjoy the beautiful Carolina weather. The service at the bar was warm and friendly. I would advise not going past the bar due to the mediocre food you select... More

We live in the Southport area and this is one of the worst restaurants in town. It has a beautiful location but every time we have been there the service has been horrible! This last time was the worst experience yet: they had two servers working on a busy Saturday afternoon, and we never had our drinks refilled. The hostess... More

Simple seafood shack. You can sit on the dock and eat. Very small and crowded. I paid $76 for 5 people. Hamburger , shrimp(15apox) crab cakes (14 appox ). Tuna filet burger(10-12). Drinks are self serve and you order as soon as you get in. Then food is taken to your table and you pay as you leave. Not fancy... More

This is a local eatery for us and we’ve been there a number of times. Unfortunately, other than our first time, each visit to the YBE has been a unsatisfactory experience. The service has been ridiculously slow and inconsistent on all our visits. That can be attributed directly to the lack of staff training and the fact there is no... More

We had lunch here a week or so ago and it was very nice. Our waiter, Eddie, was extremely attentive and friendly. The reuben I had was delicious, the fries were decent, and the beer from NC (can't remember the name) was good, too!

I should've read the reviews first. This one goes down as one of my worst dining experiences ever. We were a party of five and as the waitress brought the loaded fries we ordered, she spilled the entire plate on the floor with half of the fries, chili, cheese, etc. landing on my nephew's pants. I won't hold that against... More
