We went to Southport for a day trip and a local resident recommended Blue Cow Grille. We are very glad she did! My wife had a classic cheeseburger and chips. The cheeseburger was delicious, but the chips stole the show. They are made in the...restaurant and came out warm and delicious. We had some left over and ate them later that evening and they were delicious cold too. I had the prime rib sandwich and onion rings. Some of the best onion rings I have ever eaten! The sandwich was actually a half sandwich so I was concerned it wouldn't be enough food. Silly me! It was piled so high I couldn't get my mouth around the sandwich. Neither of us finished our meal. And the staff is incredible. Very friendly and attentive. They kept our drinks filled and had a great attitude the whole time. Customer service here can't be beat. Looking forward to our next trip to Southport so we can go back to the Blue Cow Grille!More

There are only a few tables to eat at, but our family of 6 was able to sit outside at a nice little table under an umbrella for lunch today. It's outside eating and carryout only right now, with a great view of the main...intersection of town. They have bottles of hand sanitizer for you at each table. Our waitress was the kindest lady, who even took my grandmother's sandwich back to the kitchen and cut it into small pieces after she saw that she was struggling to eat it whole. And that's because the thick burgers are stacked with delicious toppings and dripping with mouthwatering cheese and sauces. I HIGHLY recommend the pimento cheese & fried green tomato burger! My husband loved his Blue Cow burger, too. We will definitely be making a stop at the Blue Cow Grill again!More

Visited the restaurant for dinner last week. We got one of the 2 outdoor tables. The waitress did not clean the table but luckily I had sanitizer wipes to do her job. She also did not wear a mask. I thought perhaps she had taken...it off for a moment but never saw her with one when she brought our food or waited on the other table. While the burgers were very good I will not return for another visit since she obviously does not care about her customers. The owner needs to educate her employees and demand their compliance with rules set out by the governor and town mayor.More

Tried to support some small restaurants during the recent pandemic and saw a lot of good reviews for Blue Cow. The burgers were good and the grilled cheese was ok. A couple items were missing from the order , but know a lot of restaurants...are finding it challenging to move to a take out option. I will definitely give it another try when things get back to "normal".More

Don't let the casual appearance fool you. We had great food and decent wine at a very reasonable price. Housemade fish cake sandwich used LOCAL fish and was absolutely delicious! Served on a yummy brioche bun with fries. Great coleslaw on the sandwich. Wine was...only $6/glass. Very pleasant and accommodating staff. I recommend giving it a try.More
