First time there, my buddy and myself rode our Harley's from Myrtle Beach to try this place and we are so glad we did. Everyone is so friendly, and the service was outstanding. We both ordered burgers with different items on them, and they were...fantastic tasting. Plenty of perfect cooked fries with mine and he had the fresh made house potato chips that he raved about. First time there but not my last, it was well worth the ride we took to get there. Highly recommend trying this place if you're in South Port, NCMore

We drove down to Southport for lunch and decided on the Blue Cow Grill. This is a nice small quaint restaurant in downtown. The tables and chairs are retro but comfortable. I had the Ruben and my wife the pimento fried green tomato burger which...both sandwiches served piping hot along with fries. The Ruben had plenty of corned beef and the burger was good except for being over cooked just a tad. We enjoyed our lunch and would return.More

I got the classic burger on a gluten free bun with fries. The burger was good. The fries though were tasteless. My husband had the patty melt with fries. He felt it was too greasy and fries tasteless. The place was packed inside and outside....The servers were nice and the gluten free bun upcharge was only .50 which is much less than most places offering gf buns.More

This local family run business serves classic scrumptious food in generous portions. Drinks refilled without asking. Friendly, attentive service. Good value.

Haven't eaten here since COVID began. Nice to be back. Menu has INCREASED enormously offering many more selections. Did the burger patty melt on pumpernickel -- really served hot and juicy. Spouse had American burger and was delighted. Asked for crispy fries and didn't get...them. Sky did a good job of providing us with quick and attentive service.More

Nothing special as you would expect. Daily soup was horrible. The Big Tasty not tasty at all. Poor staff really busy. Restroom was dirty.

Great local burger joint with amazing burgers and more!k We recently stopped in for a bite one night. It is a quaint spot downtown with outdoor seating. My husband got the burger, I got the grilled cheese. Neither one disappointed! We got seated right away,...friendly staff, reasonable prices, even better food! Definitely recommend to stop in and enjoy the food!More

I was visiting family in the area and the Blue Cow came highly recommended. For a December day, this place was hopping! We did not have to wait long for a table but did have a bit of a wait for our order. We began...with fried green tomatoes and fried pickles. My party of four was pleased enough (they would have been better with a dipping sauce) but we didn't finish these appetizers. I had the Shrimp Taco for lunch. I thought it was good. Not great, but good. My sister ordered the Kickin Chicken Taco and that was over-fried. My mom ordered the Classic Taco and said the beef was oversalted. Dad ordered the Cheeseburger. He thought it was alright. I "served" my way through college and could tell that this server was overwhelmed. She did make her way back to check on us but at that point, we were nearly finished with our meals. There have been so many wonderful reviews for this place I have to wonder if it was an off day. No one can make another first impression, however. My family visits Southport occasionally and I visit them 2-3 times a year. There are many other restaurants to try. We won't be back.More

We stopped here by chance and had a wonderful meal. The tuna stood out, as the freshness and preparation were on point. They had great burgers and offerings for the kids, too. We were seated at one of their sidewalk tables. Service was quick and...the staff was very attentive. I loved this place and will visit again. Skip the big tourist draws down the street and relax at the place where locals go for great food and service.More

Shared a crab cake sandwich for lunch. It was good but not great. Almost like a purée crab, flavor good but texture was way off. The chips were delicious!! I would go again as their menu had several other choices that sounded delicious.

Food was great! service was the complete opposite- our waitress was rude, acted like we were a bother to her for being there. It’s a shame but we will not go back due to the lack of customer service! Not one adult there, all young...kids.More

Food was good, not great. The cooks looked to be older teenagers. Did not appear that anything was homemade, just heated up or fried from a bag. Service was very slow.
