If you want to sit at the waterfront and have a bite to eat and a refreshing beverage, walk an additional block and go to fishy-fishy. We are are frequent visitors to the area and own property on Oak Island so we're pretty familiar with the local restaurants; however, we'd not tried YBE. We were there with the grand kids... More

As we arrived in the Yacht Basin of Southport, on a whim we decided to try out this restaurant instead of the old favorite. What a delightful surprise. It was a windy evening and at first we were seated at a table that was a bit too windy to enjoy a meal. We asked if anything else was available and... More

sitting under a tin roof, watching boats go by, resisting the temptation to feed the pelican, and being part of the scene. And an unusually short wait time to get to the excellent food.

This was out second visit and it was no different than our first. We was seated quickly, and took care of immediately! It's located on the water which is beautiful and so very nice. The atmosphere was inviting with island music playing and a nice breeze on the deck. They also offer indoor seating. The restrooms were clean and the... More

I'm a local and have eaten here frequently over the last two years, but I won't anymore. The last 4-5 visits have been horrible, and I'm embarrassed that I bought my guests there. The view is lovely, but the service is borderline rude, extremely slow, and practically neglectful----IF anyone is even at the hostess station to seat you. It appears... More

Extremely poor service. I asked to speak to the manager and was told there was not a manager there. The waitress was surly and not responsive. I would not waste my time eating here.

I had given a good review to this restaurant previously. Loved the food and the service. The service is still good,but there is a new chef and a new menu and the food was terrible. I ordered shrimp tacos and there was very few shrimp, but plenty of canned corn and black beans. My friends ordered pizza and all three... More

They think by being right on the water it makes up for bad service and food..ha...don't waste your time folks...The host was the rudest creep I have ever seen as a front man for a restaurant....Go to Provision Co. next door....great food and service..you can get a drink there very quickly....
