Went here last Sat nite after finding Shagger Jacks closed at 8:30pm. By far a better choice all around. Two of us had shrimp scampi and frutti de mara. The scampi was very different than most--not so heavy on oil and garlic--instead a light touch and a little cream. Lots of big shrimp. The frutti was chock full of fish, mussels, clams, shrimp. Lacked scallops. Light, fresh tomato sauce. Each entree came with a salad. And really excellent bite-size foccacia, which are much too easy to wolf down. Very nice wine list; had a good CA zin. Had enough of each entree to take home and have another dinner. Highly recommended in Oak Island, Southport.

We met friends, as having been here before it is a nice location with the marina. We ordered the grouper special, it was excellent. One ordered lasagna and found that to their liking. Check out their own house labeled wine, it is a good value and taste.
Reservations are not accepted, so plan on a cocktail as you wait for the table.
Staff was excellent and funny too.

Probably the best lasagna we've ever eaten, with a delicious combination of cheeses and sauce. Wonderful outdoor ambience watching the sunset over the marina while we waited for late dinner seating on the back deck. Definitely worth the short wait on a busy Friday evening.
