The oysters in Tasso ham gravy was great! Service was nice and there is a nice outdoor patio. Don't miss this place when in town.

Actually this restaurant looks deceptive from the outside. You might think it is a sandwich only place. But we did dinner and lunch there recently and it was excellent. Very good selections of local seafood and other entrees. Outside seating is nice or if it is too hot, go inside. Service is great either in or out.

While spending a few days in Wilmington, NC we stumbled upon South Beach Grill. It's just as you cross onto Wrightsville beach. They are open for lunch and dinner. We went for dinner and had a fantastic meal. My grouper was some of the best fish I've ever had. The staff was friendly and knew the menu. I would highly... More

We ate here early (for dinner) on the 4th of July. It's located in the more "party atmosphere" southern end of Wrightsville Beach but the staff was professional all around and the food was really good. Some of the dishes we had were: seafood napoleon, eggplant-and-shrimp stack, shrimp scampi, Caesar salad and black eyed peas. It's a cute little place... More

Had a nice dinner here. Its not on the water but across from the harbor - a nice patio out front is the best view. But the food really set this place apart. Hard to describe - Creative Southern ??? We had the fried Black eyed peas appetizer and sweet potato flounder which was excellent. Local grouper with crab also... More

Our visit started out with reviews both on Yelp and Trip Advisor. We started with a phone call to get on the list, waited on hold for 15 minutes. When we arrived we waited an additional 20 minutes. The service was good, the food was ok not good or even great and I expect better for the price. We will... More

My wife and I ate at South Beach on the last night of our stay. As a former resident, I have eaten there a handful of times over the last 10 years or more. It looks like they renovated the restaurant recently and the outdoor seating area was very nice. The food was pretty good. My wife and I each... More

After a sandy morning at Topsail Beach, we needed a place to eat before checking into our Wilmington Motel that would be dog-friendly. This was more or less on the way into town, and it was just right. The food was awesome, the staff was friendly, and it wasn't just dog-tolerant, it was truly dog-friendly. They brought our dog out... More

This is a great place to go for a quick bite or leisurely meal. I arrived in the middle of the day after traveling so I was hungry! I tried the Southwestern Wrap & french fries. Excellent. I can't wait to go back & try something else from the menu!
