Great beer on tap, Great pizza.

Southwind is a locals favorite in an old general store. The pizza is great, wonderful craft beers on tap (not bud, bud light, and coors crap.) excellent salads and specials. Dean is carrying on a cool vibe started by Ned and Dia. Only 3 small tables outside, but nice long bar and tables... read more

Dean, the owner, is warm, friendly and genuinely concerned about the dietary challenges of his clients. For his clientele, he not only offers gluten-free and organic selections, but with his varied menu he'll gladly and in-depth discuss and fulfill ALL your dietary needs. It's difficult finding a resto for my nutrition concerns, i.e. yeast free, sugar free, soy free, olive... More

Want to feel like a local - visit this lovely bar/bistro! DELICIOUS FOOD! We almost came back here for dinner because lunch was so good! Creative chef that keeps things fresh and new. Pizza looked great, but we had a fabulous salad and crab cake sandwich.

This is a friendly, neighborhood hangout that welcomes visitors with open arms. The owner, Dean, is a gracious host/chef and the servers are pleasant and efficient. We had the Charleston shrimp and grits for dinner and I rate it tied for the very best I have ever had. The next day we both had Mediterranean salads for lunch which were... More

My wife and I eat here at leat twice a month. Most popular local hangout. Pizza is great and the entrees are aways good, always have good local seafood choices. Draft beer could be colder. Service is very good, very nice people. My favorite local place to go.

We have been going to Southwind for 18 years. Heck I think it was the Deli and Dolls when we first went! Pizza has always been great. Can't beat the homemade crust! Good variety of beers on tap and wine. They have the best burgers too! One night I got the rack of lamb, yes, rack of lamb, and it... More

The service was great. The food was good. We had the surf and turf with rice and it was very tasty. The owner stopped by to chat which I think is a nice touch. They had a guitar duo for entertainment that night which added to the festive atmosphere. It seemed like the place to be if you wanted a... More

A Southwinds meal is a nearly weekly occurrence in our family. The pizzas are delicious. The soups are also very good--my favorites are butternut squash and creamy potato. The current owner has brought over a lot of his menu items from the College deli and Yorktown Pub. Large portions. Southwinds is worth the drive to Mathews of you aren't already... More

Fabulous pizza and salads with the best dressing (buttermilk parmesan) I've ever had! They should bottle this stuff, I'd be there every week to pick up a new bottle of it! Really good desserts also.
