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.

Lunch before the Beach

My wife and I had the Blackened Grilled Grouper Tacos and they were excellent. It was early in the day and service was a bit slow, but we set outside and the weather was perfect and we did not mind.

It's always a treat to eat at South Beach Grill in Wrightsville Beach. The view of the Harbor, sail boats and sunset is spectacular. My favorite dish is Grouper Linda which is pecan- crusted and served with a white wine sauce. They have a nice wine selection and service is excellent!

We stay in Carolina beach and this past week took a drive to check out wrightsville beach after visiting Airlie gardens. Over there at WB we had lunch at South Beach Grill. Black Eyed Peas appetizer was really good and something perfect to share that was not a typical starter. Grouper Tacos and Catch of the Day sandwich (swordfish). Both... More

Loved this restaurant. Though they could not take reservations, they graciously told us to call thirty minutes ahead and they would put us on the wait list. Fabulous food. You must try the sweet potato encrusted fish.

We are in town for a conference and stopped in at South Beach for dinner. I got the Grouper Linda (recommended by the waitress) and my colleagues got the Low Country Mac N Cheese. It was all simply delicious! I was a little worried about the grouper - I am not a fan of heavy fried foods. The description sounded... More

There is NOTHING I dont like here!! So fresh the menu changes daily! You have to try the seafood nachos, the pimento cheese, and the shrimp and grits.

Had a lunch and dinner here. Both were very good. Good service, atmosphere is not the best, but the location makes up for it. We have had the fried seafood plate, turkey club, swordfish sandwich and grouper. We would recommend all of them.

We live elsewhere, but have a place on Lumina. South Beach Grill is the first place we go when we get to Wrightsville Beach. It's a bit cozy inside and has a big, covered outdoor dining area. You can call-ahead-put-your-name-on-list, which works well. Five of us ate there July 2 around 6:30. It was very busy, yet our service was... More
