Description: 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.

The waitress didn't want to be there. I inquired about the seafood and she told me about the non seafood specials. She smiled occasionally, especially at the end. The patio is nice. The free parking is helpful. The tea was old and stale. The fish tacos were unseasoned drowned in their special sauce, that isn't terrible. I periodically took a... More

Dropped by for late lunch after several hours at the beach. Cute location, interesting menu. We had the burger and the fried clam po-boy. Once the order was put in, the service was faaast! Food was tasty and very enjoyable. Hand made chips were good but needed some type of dip. Ate inside and really enjoyed the AC after a... More

This is a nice causal restaurant with good food. Make a reservation they say busy. If it's not too hot it's nice to sit outside

We really enjoyed our meal here. We started with the shrimp and grits appetizer which was excellent. The grit cake was delicious and smothered in this incredible sauce (lick the plate good!). I had the stuffed flounder and my husband had the black drum. Both fish dishes were very good. Service was attentive and friendly.

My husband and I go to this restaurant whenever we are in town. It is one of our favorites for food and convenience. The food is always a treat and, for the price, one of the best restaurants around. Last night, we requested outside seating, as always. However, a storm blew In forcing everyone inside. All of us were taken... More

I like the variety of the menu as well as the location in the heart of Wrightsville Beach. Parking during busy beach-going times can be an issue. Although there is a small parking lot in the rear, be prepared with change to feed a parking meter during the day. There is shaded seating in the front, directly on Waynick Blvd.... More

We have been patronizing South Beach Grille for years and have noted a decline in food quality the last few times we have dined there. We were six people on a Friday night in August 2014. Because of their location and bar, they were busy. We were seated outside on their patio at a table that could comfortably accommodate 4... More

The food at South Beach is good, pretty much across the board. The fried blackeyed peas are surprisingly good, and are quite an operation to make. Portions are large, and you pretty much get a fair value for your dollar, considering that this is a beach town. There is indoor and outdoor seating. The night we went there were 2... More

The ingredients in this salad are fantastic with the exception of the lack of crab. The manager did being out more which was great but he didn't give me any chance to articulate how fantastic the salad is otherwise - he abruptly ended my giving feedback and rushed away. He didn't realize I was going to compliment the shrimp.
