Description: 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.

“casual and good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2013

This restaurant is right at the end of Hwy 74 that runs into the beach area. Restaurant is very casual for not having to take a shower from the beach and still eat among others...yet its upscale enough to have a nice 'date night'. Outside seating is best, but it does sit on the road looking across to the sound side. Food is good. Our 6 yr old had the Mac & Cheese and liked it (she's picky eater). We had the Flounder Florentine and Flounder Special. Both very nice. Decent portions with nice garlic mashed potatoes. Wine and beer small selections but good. Will visit again.

“My place for flounder”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2013

Love South Beach Grill. Great location right on Lumina in Wrightsville Beach. Outdoor seating under new awning and nice, if tight, room indoors. This is my go to place for wonderful flounder. Other seafood is delicious as well and staff is always friendly and welcoming. Great for lunch or dinner, ideal location for sunset dinner/drinks.

“Nice place to stop!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2013

On a recent trip to Wilmington the rain finally stopped and we were able to get to the beach before we headed home. We thought we would grab a bite before we left and we found the South Beach Grill. We didn't eat a lot but what we did was very good. We had a soup special and a chicken quesadilla. Both were very tasty. Eating outdoors is always great and we had a couple of non alcoholic drink specials that were very good. I had an Arnold Pomegranate and my wife had the Sunset Cooler. The service was friendly and efficient. Will definitely come again when we're in the area.

“Great menu”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

The service was excellent- there was no wait, and the waitstaff were quite friendly. There was a mixed crowd, and the menu was excellent. Definitely try the fried pickles!

Great proximity to the beach, very friendly staff and good quality seafood with pretty good drink/beer/wine list. We left full and happy.
