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.

Great menu and service

I decided to go here spur of the moment during the off season and it was not crowded, just some locals. There were many great special options but I ordered the sweet potato encrusted grouper and was not disappointed. The sides were excellent as well, and it was a generous portion, I couldn't... read more

Great little restaurant with beach flair.The bartender has a heavy hand and makes a strong drink, but most people were drinking wine (special that evening) Had the Crab Nachos and the Sweet Potato crusted Flounder. Both were outstanding! Parking is really tight, but if you head out after 6pm, you don't have to pay for street parking.

Wife had mac and cheese shrimp and crab. I opted for the uptown meatloaf with cheese and bacon inside. my wife said she might ask for this... More

The crab nachos are amazing! I also recommend the Grouper Linda. This is a great spot if you can get a seat outdoors on summer nights

I had the Primavera flatbread which was obviously fresh with just the right amount of balsamic drizzle. I highly recommend it.

The ambiance of this place might suggest that you lower your expectations, but the food was great! It is a small, low-key restaurant on the inter-coastal. Friendly staff, good service, delivering a good value. Definitely recommended!

We were looking for a nice restaurant to have dinner. As we strolled through the parking lot I thought, oh this looks like a little diner. I love diner food but I wanted a nice dinner. The place is very cute on the inside, very small, only 14 tables and four seatsat the bar, however there is outdoor seating also.... More

South Beach is the place on the beach to take your best friend. The specials are really special and the service is too. This small but exceptionally well managed restaurant will not disappoint. My wife and I visit often and I have to force myself not to order the Grouper Linda every time. It is a buy local establishment that... More

This place has been in this location for a good number of years by providing diners with good service and solid menu options, including some creative dishes. It is a "can't go wrong" option on an island with limited choices.

I've eaten here twice with my family and both times it's been a good/great experience. The service is very good. The swordfish sandwich ...eggplant and buffalo chicken wrap are all good choices. I visit the area a few times a year and after a day at the beach..it's always a plus! P.S. a good beer or two on tap! Also... More
