Great hidden away gem! Great little bar... Offers out door seating with great meal selection. A little pricy but worth every penny.

There was a 30 minute wait when we arrived, they do not take reservations and there were 4 in our party. The service and food made it well worth the wait! Once seated we were waited on by Ben, who is probably one of the best waiters I've had in all my restaurant experiences. He helped explain several items on... More

Went as a large group (10+) and had one of their private dining rooms. Service was excellent; an outstanding menu with numerous daily specials. We had a wonderful evening and is an annual visit at the beach.

This is a hidden jewel that is not to be missed. All of their food is expertly prepared and is delicious. Our waitress was professional, helpful, and friendly. They also have a very good wine menu. Personally, I recommend the lasagna and the creme brûlée cheesecake. Also, while you wait for your food, garlic cheese bread with Parmisan cheese and... More

Great food, staff and location. It is consistently great. Love the marina view. The lasagna is their most popular dish, so I had to have that. Was not disappointed. Go with a big appetite, because the portions are generous.

Joseph's is a wonderful Italian restaurant on South Harbor. If you eat on the porch you can watch the various motor and sail boats at their moorings. The food is excellent, and the owner, Joseph, won the best chef in Wilmington a couple of years ago. Prices are fail and each meal includes a salad - getting more and more... More

Unfortunately our party of 4 was seated right next to the entrance to the kitchen in the small but tastefully decorated restaurant. Our server was a bit haughty and not the most attentive. He offered alcoholic beverages and when we declined, he walked off without offering any further drinks. He returned a few moments later, recited the specials of the... More

A little hard to find, but just follow signs or use GPS. It is located between Southport and Oak Island. Food, service, view - all were great. I had the shrimp and grits and my husband had lasagna. We didn't have room for dessert. What a surprise to find this great restaurant in a rather new strip shopping center on... More
