Don't let appearances fool you. The fresh baked bread and deserts are outstanding. The dinner platters are great too. We loved the crab cakes (almost pure crab), the shrimp and blackened tuna. The service was great too. Everything is fresh and home made on site.

This is fast becoming my favorite Southport restaurant. Even though it is in Boiling Springs it is merely a 10 minute drive from the heart of Southport (I timed it from the ABC store). Don't expect white table clothes and fine silver instead what you...More

Our southern food has influences from Switzerland, but the focus is southern comfort. Open for lunch and dinner Tuesday through Saturday. Each burger is 100% Certified Angus Beef (R) and served on House Made Buns. We make from scratch all of our bread. The best Crab Cakes in Southport. Awesome Sauteed Seafood. Plate specials daily posted on our Facebook page. Everyone raves about our Cupcakes. Do not pass up on trying these!
