Southwind is the best at all it does!

The "Berkley Island" Pizza is my absolute favorite and I love the 8" personal size one. Actually, everything is great at Southwind. Last time I ate there with my husband was a week-and-a-half ago and the Chef Salad with the balsamic vinaigrette was as fantastic as ever! The food is fabulous and... read more

Our local 'Cheers" with great food and Greek specialties. Best pizza around! Jam nights on Thursday, live music every 2 weeks or so. Good for families.

I have been there a few times, and loved the food, very fresh and delicious. The atmosphere is warm and welcoming. The location is great, I always enjoyed walking to these little shops near by after a good lunch!

Pizza, seafood, hamburgers, pasta, lamb and more. I have been going there for three years. Warm and welcoming. Annie the chef and general manager and Dean the owner And the wait staff go out of their way to help. Always.

Southwind was an institution prior to the current owner, Dean. No one could believe it could weather the transition (welcome to a small town!). Not only did they weather but have thrived and continued to be fabulous! Superb pizza, creative daily specials, local music on Thursdays make it the reason to come to Mathews from surrounding counties. The charming cottage... More

Great place in Mathews for good eats. Pizza overrated, and sometimes burnt. Creative food with creative prices.

This is our second visit to the area and we had to stop here again for the pizza. It's just delicious. Plus the pie is very good. Service is also good. The atmosphere is fun and a little funky.

The pizza was very good and the crust even better. It was not busy and we chose to eat at the bar. The waitress was fairly unfriendly and we felt like an imposition. She was attentive and warmed up slightly. The restaurant was pretty and clean but super bright including the bar for some reason.

The pizza here is really terrific with a small, but impressive, beer selection. Our waitstaff could have been a little more attentive, otherwise a very enjoyable evening. There are other menu selections that look equally appetizing, however I always order the pizza!
