Amazing menu and friendly warm place

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.

Food cooked fresh which tastes great, the staff know about what they are serving and provide local knowledge on what happening around the area!! Prices are great for what you get- and it seems that this establishment is at the heart of the community with locals and visitors mixing and being made to feel welcome by all of the staff!!... More

We used to love Southwind. Their gourmet pizzas and entrees were excellent because the husband/wife team put their heart and soul into quality food and service. Now, it's just okay, and service is too.
