“Best Restaurant in Southport”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2014

Because Southport, NC is such a tourist destination, there are quite a number and variety of restaurants for such a small town. Clearly, Mr. P's is the best of the bunch, especially if you like seafood. It's not inexpensive, but it is worth it. The only thing that would make the restaurant even better would be if it was on the water, which it used to be.

“Really good!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2014

We shared a Yellowfin Tuna appetizer that was absolutely fantastic. My wife had the seafood platter, I had the fried shrimp and both were great. The service was friendly and attentive and the manager made regular rounds in the dining room ensuring everyone was enjoying their meal. A great place for dinner!

“Outstanding food and service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2014 via mobile

I cannot say enough about the wonderful food and outstanding service! Great menu and drink selection with reasonable prices. From oysters Rockefeller to collards (which were cooked just right!) to seared sesame seed tuna to other fresh fish...all good! The wait staff was great about keeping our water glasses full and drinks fresh. nice atmosphere with full bar. Give it a try- you won't be disappointed.
