I read the high reviews and decided to have lunch. I had the BLT w/ beach beans and my husband ate a BBQ sandwich with fries. Average lunch ~ certainly nothing special or unique.

We were looking for something on the beach for lunch but instead stopped at South Beach Grill. We did get to sit outside and we could see the inter coastal but it was not a beach front restaurant and that is our fault for not searching a bit more. My wife's crab cake sandwich was good . My blackened grouper... More

We were lucky enough to eat outside on Saturday night and it was wonderful! We have a gluten allergy in our family and they didn't flinch! Lots to choose from! She got shrimp scampi over sauted spinach and it was amazing! I got pecan crusted grouper w/ garlic mashed potatoes and veggie (not GF) and it was also delicious! Thanks... More

Have a great meal before going out with your Captain on a day out fishing. Accessible by boat. Across from the public docks at Wynn Plaza. As they do have directions by boat. Many daily specials and always the freshest Fish available. I always have the Catch of the Day, Spiced Shrimp, and Lump Crab Cake always fresh and tasty,... More

We are overlooking the scenic anchorage on Banks Channel, located on beautiful Wrightsville Beach, North Carolina. Our restaurant has been the Local's favorite since 1997. We welcome our guests with consistent, creative cuisine served in a friendly, casual atmosphere. You can enjoy a great burger sitting outside on our patio for lunch or experience the unique, eclectic, regional cuisine at dinner of our Chef. His menu highlights the bounty of Sea and Land, locally sourced.We also have Gluten Free/ reduced items.
