This restaurant is really for tourists. The food is good, but ordinary and served on Styrofoam plates. Kinda pricey for what it is, our meal for two consisted of cheeseburgers and fries and two bottles of water which came to $19.00...................

Great fresh, local seafood. Crab cake, tuna steak, and peel-and-eat shrimp. Also have a great burger and fries. It is not fancy, and I will say I was concerned the first time a friend took me there, but the food is worth it. You order first, and then are seated to eat., but they are fast and servers are busy but helpful. Right on the water, so boaters come in regularly. Don't dress fancy -- not necessary. But you will not find a better crab cake or a better price (something are ~$5 a la carte). We go to Oak Island at least 2x a year and will eat at Provision 3 out of 5 nights. Love it love it love it.

Very busy place…. people everywhere ordering and grabbing drinks. A fun place to enjoy fresh shrimp and a beer.

The staff was good. Just remember that it might seem a little hectic if you show up on a weekend evening. But highly recommend the experience.

Worth your time if your in Southport to swing in for a pound of shrimp!

Have gone to the provision company while on vacation for 10 years. The view is great, the food was good (nothing fantastic) but this year the service was the worst ever! We were meeting our friends there so the first thing we did was walk into the eating area to see if they were there. A BIG NO-NO! So we walked up to the counter to order and were greeted by an angry looking unfriendly young woman. We said there were 2 in our party and then when she said how many will be at your table and we said 4 she angrily scribbled out the 2 and put a 4. You have to order real quick if you value your life. After ordering I picked up a mayonnaise packet and she made me put it back because that's only for take out customers. Then why put it there?? She said they were on the table. Wrong again! When our friends joined us the first thing she said was how rude and nasty the girl at the counter was. She made the mistake of picking up a napkin to take with her! A big NO-NO! Life is just too short to be treated like that while on vacation. Somebody needs to take that angry girl aside and give her an attitude adjustment. Let me add though that the girl who delivered our food made up for the rudeness of the giirl at the counter. She couldn't have been better.
