My friend suggested this place for lunch. We both had Cobb salad without the bacon. The staff and food was great. Nice little place close to Wrightsville Beach. They also have wine tasting night too.

If you are looking for a long standing restaurant with a long tradition in the area that serves a solid and interesting menu, this is a great choice. While the menu has slimmed down a bit, it still has quite a variety of selections along with the traditional southern/comfort favorites. All our meals were very good and priced well for... More

To be fair, they may have a new chef and management but I went three-four times and was very disappointed all times. I was always the guest or wouldn't have chosen them. I've never been impressed with the meals or service. One time the waiter was so inattentive that my date had to finally go back in the kitchen to... More

Great meal and fab dessert. Don't miss Monday shrimp and grits special lunch. $9.95 makes this the best lunch special ever. Key lime pie tart is a treat. Huge menu. Many specials. Can get crowded with a wait. Not sure why this does not show as one of the top rated restaurants in Wilmy.

If you don't see something you like on this menu you probably don't like to eat!! There are always fresh soups and specials, pub favorites, and great salads. This place can be crowded and parking can be iffy so try to go early or at off hours.

A little off the beaten track, but really close to the drawbridge, Sweet & Savory is not to be missed! We love their lunch with the great sandwiches (love the vegie wraps!), but dinner is a neat local treat. Local musicians perform, and the fried oysters, fried green tomatoes and shrimp and grits are not to be missed. Breakfast is... More

Haven't been here in a few years. Went for brunch but missed it so we stayed for lunch. Terrific selection from salads to unique sandwiches to burgers, all served on fresh baked breads and rolls. It's always busy but the wait if there is one is never long. A local favorite.

Very busy restaurant, but wait was short and service was great. Food was very tasty. Went for breakfast, at the time that they were getting ready to transition for lunch and we were accomodated very quickly. Would definitely recommend!
