“Best waterside bar between Cape May and Key West”
Reviewed April 24, 2014 via mobile

Like being in Times Square where Broadway, 7th Avenue, and 42nd street all come together. Catch all the boaters especially on the weekends. Catch a regatta from the deck, watch pelicans soar, ibises, gulls and dolphins frolic in the waters. Enjoy live entertainment on weekends and rub elbows with the locals at the bar that doubled as Ivan's Seafood Shack in the movie SAFE HAVEN. Enjoy a meal at one of the local eateries after enjoying your favorite beverage while enjoying the incredible sunsets. Opens at 4:00 during the week and 2:00 on weekends. The only negative limited parking you may have to walk a block or so to reach the establishment. A must visit while in the area.

“Great view and bar”
Reviewed April 16, 2014

This is the best view in Southport. It is a bar that has lots of local color. Great place to see the sunset. The only problem is the "no seeums" that can carry you away.

“A Very Casual Bar with a Very Spectacular View”
Reviewed March 22, 2014

This outdoor bar sits right on the point of the yacht basin in Southport, affording incredibly expansive views of the intercoastal and the Atlantic. A good place to drink, see and be seen and people watch, No food there, but there are a few restaurants at the yacht basic.
