The food was amazing, the system of ordering is VERY laid back. you order your food, grab a drink and go back for different drinks by yourself from the fridge and let them know what you drank and pay near where you ordered. The view of the inter coastal waterway was perfect at sunset.

This is by far my favorite place in Southport. Nothing fancy by any means, everything is served on paper plates with plastic silverware. If you can't get past that, you probably wouldn't fit in. It is, however, right on the water with a beautiful view of Oak Island and Bald Head. Their tuna steak sandwich is the best thing on the menu, costs right around $10(with fries or another side), and is the best tuna sandwich I've ever had, period. It is consistently fantastic and I've ordered about 50 of them so far. It's not sliced super thick, so get it rare(even if you like medium rare usually). Second best on the menu, if you're not a fish person, is the peel and eat shrimp. They are seasoned very well and they are a great pick if you don't mind getting a little messy. They also have an honor system beer cooler with most of the popular imports and domestics. They close sometime around Thanksgiving and don't open up till March or so(don't quote me on that), so make sure they're open before heading down. Get the tuna sandwich, rare, with potato salad and a Red Stripe. You won't regret it.

Provision is great for what it is--a fun shrimp shack on the water front in this small, quiet NC town. Menu includes Shrimp, burgers, seafood salad, etc. All is served on paper, with plastic forks, glasses, etc. Casual, good eats.

Closed during the winter but a fun casual place to eat in the nice weather. Honor system for drinks, how cool is that . Great local seafood and right on the water.
