“Great Service, good food”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

Right in the center of Southport, so easy to get to and stop in while walking the shops and other great attractions in this "Mayberry by the Sea" town. A great meal, some different items like duck breast and the service was wonderful.

“Why Is It Called "The Pharmacy"?”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

This is my long-time favorite home town restaurant for two reasons. First, the food is great from Kelli's signature crab cakes to the crowning touch for me - the delicious creme brulee! Secondly, it's got history! Built at the beginning of the 20th century as the first pharmacy in our county, it still has some of the original elements and it's quaintness makes for a nice dining experience. That's why it's called "The Pharmacy"! By the way, old Doc Watson's ghost is said to still hang around on occasion. . .hummm.

“Nice place to visit while in Southport”
Reviewed July 19, 2013 via mobile

The Pharmacy was one of the only restaurants open at 3 in the afternoon when we got off the ferry. We had the eggroll and crabcake appetizer as an afternoon snack. The food was very nicely presented but only a little above average in taste. We had to wait a little after we were seated to get service but the bartender ended up as our server and he was very attentive.

“Very Nice”
Reviewed July 14, 2013

Atmosphere very nice. My husband had salmon which he enjoyed; it was nicely presented. I had chicken salad on field greens which was tasty,although the portion was a bit on the small side for the price.

“Great Fresh Catch”
Reviewed July 11, 2013

Pharmacy Restaurant has excellent, wonderfully prepared food. The diner has a choice in the way the entrée is prepared from blackened to broiled to baked. The fresh catch is just that, fresh and delicious. The crab cakes are prepared in light crusty dough, very different adaptation on an old favorite.
