The Fish is a great place for a drink as they don't serve food. A quaint practice of joining the "club" because of NC's archaic blue laws. It costs a buck. Drinks are nice and service is attentive. The view is exceptional.

Key West has Mallory Square for sunsets, but Southport has American Fish Co.(& it’s the same sun!) Great place for a cold drink, good music, & great people. The sun setting on the waterway is spectacular.

I've never eaten here, only visited for a few drinks while waiting to be seated at Provisions. This place is a must visit. The views from their docks are unparalleled. If you can time your visit around sunset, you won't be disappointed. Be careful, though....More
