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.

I hope this was just a very different night. This is usually my favorite restaurant. My husband and daughters food was good, but it was so loud inside that we could not carry on a conversation.

What a meal! Delicious! We made a dinner reservation and were greeted warmly and immediately seated. Although a casual appearance, the food rivals a fine dining restaurant. We had the Mac-and-Cheese appetizer along with the Mussels that we shared. (3 Adults/1 Toddler) Very good! Our entrees were "to die for". Flounder "Francais", "Grouper Linda" and a Pork Tenderloin entree. We... More

After having eaten at a restaurant where all the food was fried and where you couldn't distinguish one fried food from another we found the South Beach Grill. The chef has a sense of flavor and the presentations were excellent. During a brief stay in Wrightsville Beach we ate there at least three times. Unlike many restaurants at the seashore... More

Our little group picked this place for lunch based on other reviews. I had been disappointed with the seafood I had already had in this area. Let me tell you, this little restaurant saved the day on my seafood experience. I choose the fish and chips which was very moist, lightly battered, and very tasty. They had a decent wine... More

My husband and I ate lunch at South Beach Grill today. Even though we have lived in Wilmington for 12 years, we had never eaten here. This will not be our last time. The food was fresh, well prepared, and well presented. My mahi tacos were a delight, with a generous amount of moist fish and topped with a house... More

My friends and I were meeting half way (2 hrs for each of us) in Wrightsville Beach and we decided to check out a new place that we have never been to before. However, there was little parking so we decided to pay the parking meeting. It was $2.50/hr and we went into the restaurant, thinking that would be plenty... More

We had lunch at South Beach Grille and were very pleased with the service and the food. The serving size was a little small but everything tasted great and the wait staff were very friendly and the manager even gave me the recipe for their tartar sauce (which was fantastic). Definitely worth trying if you are in Wrightsville.
