My group of nine showed up on a rainy Saturday afternoon (8/17/13) at about 2:30, there were five cars in the parking lot which should have told us to leave but we went in. It was a few minutes before we were seated and the waitress came over for the drink order. Seven sweet teas and two beers should not... More

We are locals and tried a newly opened restaurant in our area this morning. We went for breakfast - very good!! Every thing was hot and tasty with excellent coffee. The place has a nautical theme and made us feel like we were on vacation. Great service (Kim was very friendly and right there when you needed something). We will... More

One word. TERRIBLE. $2.O0 extra for broiled which you could not eat. House wine should have been left in the bottle. Beer was good.

Dined here when it was Lucky Fisherman several times and enjoyed the BUFFET as I like variety and the offerings were HOT fish/pasta/meat in assorted prep styles, salad and dessert bar. The owners of the Southport Grill moved to this location late July, 2013 and we tried midweek lunch and then breakfast. The menu is smaller and so are the... More

Carrie (the owner) is a wonderful person with a big heart who had turned an old dive of a restaurant into a great place with yummy food. Been back twice in one week! Kim, our server, was awesome. Very attentive to my two year Old daughter and so friendly :)

we had an excellent experience here today! Hostess was a doll & our waitress, Melissa , was attentive, pleasant, funny and completely on her game. The service alone made our first trip to the island a pleasant one. Ribs are amazing, fried catfish and coconut shrimp were delicious and portions were big, I'll be having leftovers tomorrow morning for sure!... More

My wife and I tried it out when it first opened, of course with most first openings it was rough. Came back this evening for a second go. My wife had the grouper and myself had the catfish and shrimp. It was amazingly great. Our server was very professional and polite and the food was very tasteful. Defiantly will be... More

We stopped here on a Sat. night and the place was very busy. Staff warned us that the kitchen was backed up and they wouldn't be able to put our order in for a while. They made sure we were happy and kept the hush puppy basket full. Food was good, Ceasar salad with shrimp and grilled grouper. Decor was... More

We had dinner here. It was ok, but seemed mostly like food you could cook in a microwave. I had the flounder, which seemed fresh, but the rest of the meal which was fries and a vegetable seemed to be not fresh. My wife had clam chowder which we think came from a can. Not sure about that, but that's... More
