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.

Wow!!! Amazing meal!

The place doesn't look special from the outside, but the place was packed. We showed up on a Friday night at 8:00 but did not have to wait long for an outside table for four. The menu is extensive with a daily chalkboard of numerous interesting specials. We took advantage of one, the Fat Flounder... read more

This is a locally owned, community-oriented beach bar and seafood grill. It s nestled between the intracoastal waterway and Wrightsville Beach.

We stopped in for a quick lunch and were surprised at how wonderful the food was. I had the grilled swordfish on a salad with blue cheese crumbles, pecans, apples, mandarin oranges, and Maker's Mark dressing. The fried pickles are phenomenal. The calamari is so fresh. We were seated quickly and our server was fantastic.

I spent a week in Wrightsville Beach, we had dinner out every night, and we went back twice to South Beach Grill. The only restaurant in the island worth to dine in! Simple and fresh seafood, really good and attentive staff: you don't need anything more. Sit in or out, it will be a great experience!

We had an excellent time here. I had always heard it was good but until tonight, had never experienced it. The artichoke dip to start was great. I enjoyed the Swordfish with the shrimp topping & Julianne Vegetables, while others had the Seafood Lasagna and Mac N Cheese. All were excellent.

My boyfriend and I shared 3 appetizers and that was more than enough for us. We tried the mussels in marinara sauce, clams, and the seafood boil. It was all delicious. The cornbread they serve is good too. They have a patio, but we dined inside instead. Overall it was a great experience.

We went here because it was close to where we wanted to be to watch the Flotilla. It was freezing cold and crowded but the staff worked hard to get us a table, but it was outside. We had no reservations and it was crazy busy so there are no complaints about our table. We were all drinking hot drinks... More

This is a busy restaurant that manages to maintain high standards for both food and service. We ate the specials both times we visited. Both were fish specials and they were perfectly prepared. I can't praise the restaurant highly enough. I would eat there 3x a day because the menu is so extensive. We came on a busy weekend with... More

We had to sit outside at the bar, in the sun. Very noisy, service was rushed. Food was good. My husband loved his eggplant dish.

Food was very average...would not go back! Server was nice, no wait. Water tastes funny, which is common with beachside restaurants, however, they charge $4.95 for specialty drinks clearly made with tap water, making them taste awful....
