Don't let the name fool you. Yes, the Pizza is outstanding but the nightly specials cannot be missed. The menu includes Salads, Pizzas and Sandwiches, available daily for lunch and dinner. BUT the first page of the menu changes twice daily...lunch and dinner. I must warn you....specials sell out. The menu includes fresh ingredients..not frozen. Seafood is bought locally and... More

Perfect lunch venue. Lots of locals eat here. Food is fresh and homemade. Great place to appreciate true feel of Northern Neck Virginia

This was a special Sunday Brunch day and the Southwind Pizza was chosen in Mathews, VA for our small gathering. Our friends chose the place and they were spot on with this restaurant. It is very quaint, comfortable, affordable, fresh food cooked the way you want it. The owner greeted us and sat briefly at our table to let us... More

I visit Southwind often for lunch, dinner and Sunday brunch. NEVER a bad meal. The fresh ingredients are what bring people here plus the great service. I am so impressed with a Restaurant to cares about there customers and will customize the dishes when possible. Dean knows his customers and sometimes knows what you want before you do. He is...

Great find for our first night of vacation when we wanted something quick to pick up. Pizza was excellent. Loved the crust and the different olives! When we went to pick up our order they had live music playing and looked like the place to be! I wish we could have spent more time here!

This is way more than a "pizza place". It's a full-on community gathering place that just happens to have great food, at great prices, great service and great live music. It is really just a very special place. The Rigby Island pizza was delicious and each ingredient tasted fresh - basil/garlic/spinach/tomato - all farm to table. Friends ordered several non-pizza...

We sat out on the porch on a lovely day. The service was great. We had sweet potato and black bean enchiladas and quiche and wine. We thought we were going to get pizza but when we saw the other options we had to try some of them. I think the menu changes and next time maybe I will try... More

Locals gathering place which is really more than pizza, even though pizza is good; however you can do what I did and order Steak Oscar and find it to be very good. There is a row of taps displaying regional craft beers and some local Virginia wines. If you just know one local, you'll be introduced around a bit and... More

My parents ordered seafood and really enjoyed it. I got a pizza which was very tasty, but too salty. Not the fault of the restaurant, but ordering a pie with feta and olives wasn't a smart choice on my part after being in the sun all day. I was parched. Enjoyed the Terrapin IPA; I'd never had it before.......quite tasty.... More
