We are overlooking the scenic anchorage on Banks Channel, located on beautiful Wrightsville Beach, North Carolina. Our restaurant has been the Local's favorite since 1997. We welcome our guests with consistent, creative cuisine served in a friendly, casual atmosphere. You can enjoy a great burger sitting outside on our patio for lunch or experience the unique, eclectic, regional cuisine at dinner of our Chef James Rivenbark. His menu highlights the bounty of fresh Carolina coastal seafood at our front door. We also have Gluten Free items.

We were looking for an early dinner on a recent road trip and decided to try this place. The fried pickles were good, and our server was bubbly and efficient. My husband had a house salad and the shrimp scampi, and I had a salad with blackened shrimp. All was excellent, including the cornbread, but... read more

Took my family here later in the evening after a beach stroll. The staff was very kind and seated is as fast as they could. The food took a bit as they were very busy but when it came out it was amazing, fresh and hot. I would definitely go again.

The staff were so nice you'd have thought they were old buddies, and the food...oh the food! Its not the biggest place around, but it packs a whopper of tasty on the pallet. As a former resident and proud laney grad, I can't believe I never ate here before but I'm heading back tomorrow for lunch again. Best clam chowder... More

My husband and daughter and I visited here this week. The food was good, but nothing special. I had the fish and chips. I found the coating a bit oily and had to scrape it off and just eat the fish. My husband had a sandwich and liked it pretty well, but didn't rave about it. My biggest concern is... More

Thank You for your input on our menu.You are correct we do not have one dedicated Fryer for Gluten Free food. However this is indicated on our menu and its sounds like our staff did further inform you of this. We do our best as one of the few restaurants in our area that affords choices to those with Celiac... More

A trip to Wrightsville Beach is never complete without supper at South Beach. We ate on the patio and enjoyed the sunset and gentle breeze off the water. Intriguing cocktail list, very good wine list, attentive service. But what keeps us returning is the exquisite food - sweet potato encrusted flounder and the flounder Francaise are our favorites but we... More

I would say that the food is average. But their fries are the greatest on earth! Great place to grab a beer and chill on the patio while you sip a craft beer.

Our food was average. Neither of us found the split salad or entrees particularly tasty. It is a nice place. The staff was good. The service was fast but our meal was just average.

Although parking can be hard to find the food here is worth the effort. Our first time to the Wrightsville Beach area and wanted to have some good seafood. Our entrees were the Grouper Linda and the Seafood Lasagna, both were excellent. The service and atmosphere were both good and we enjoyed the meal very much.
