I'm surprised to read such an unfavorable review about my restaurant, especially since we are closed for the season. Are you sure you are reviewing the correct establishment? More

Grateful place to hang out and listen to good live bands. Staff is great and friendly, and nothing beats being right on the water

I won't be to harsh. I feel this place doesn't have an identy. It is some where between Fishy Fishy and Provisions both geographically and quality To be smack in the middle of these two restaurants you would think the service and food would be better. Over the past three years I have visited the restaurant five or six times.......it... More

Friday & Saturday nights from 7-10pm live music! Fun on the water environment. Awesome Italian food all homemade & fresh! A great way to relax and enjoy an evening in Southport. Sit by the outdoor fire for cooler winter nights enjoying cocktails!!!

Husband, daughter and 2 granddaughters had lunch today. Very tasty but a little pricey. My daughter and I had a great chicken salad, the girls had kids chicken tenders and fries and my husband had a shimp oyster po boy. We enjoyed the sweet tea and the waiter was exceptional! We will probably go back. Soon I hope.

Food was okay. Price was about $20 per person for a cheese burger sweet potato fries and a tea. Tea was really good. Not very clean and too many flies and birds to enjoy eating. Waitress was super though.

The wife and I spent a evening hearing live music while eating a grouper sandwich. It was fun and relaxing.

I really liked the location, but found the food to be a bit expensive. I had a shrimp casadilla. It was great except it was about 18 dollars. Be prepared to deal with birds and bugs as well. The staff were friendly. I would go back for drinks and to watch live music.

Yacht Basin is located right on the water, with a beautiful view. It has seating on a small deck and you will most likely have a wait, ours was 25 min. They do serve drinks and will give you a menu to review while waiting. Once seated we were told that the lunch menu was no longer being used, so... More

Shrimp basket was good. The Caesar salad was soggy both lettuce and croutons. Dressing was average at best. Lobster bisque was good. Very tomatoey, If you don't like tomato, it may not be for you. The service was lacking in help. 1 server for entire outdoor seating area. Although server was accommodating, he was running.

Thank Danyeal B
