“Good/Bad”
Reviewed April 27, 2014

The atmosphere was great. The shrimp were delicious but the crab cakes were awful-( may have been just my preference) very little crqb meat, dry and seemed to be from the grocery store frozen food dept.

“Inexpensive Seafood with a View”
Reviewed April 25, 2014

Classic seafood shanty set-up. Casual counter service with outdoor seating with a view and it was inexpensive too. The steamed peel and eat shrimp were tasty in an Old Bay way (though messy) and the grouper salad sandwich was good not great. Overall the type of seafood place each seaside town like this needs.

“This is the place to go on your first trip to South Port”
Reviewed April 20, 2014

Not my favorite at all, but if you go to SP you'll be asked, "Did you go to Provisions". So go. The business model is so unusual you'll get a kick out of it. Grab beers up front and be led to your table. This place almost operates on the honor system.

Expect a pretty long wait during season, but there's a beer joint at the end of the street/on the water and it's a fun place to hang out while you wait. Food is good and the atmosphere is great. Eating on paper plates is not my fav, but at Provisions it works.

“Unpretentious, Good Seafood”
Reviewed April 19, 2014 via mobile

Ate here on a cold, wet, rainy night over Easter weekend and loved it. It's straightforward and very casual. Got the crab cake and shrimp special - couldn't fault it. Really liked the friendliness of the service as well. If you're looking for a casual place to grab a cold beer and decent seafood with a great view (even if it's a torrential downpour), I'd recommend this place.

“You have to go!”
Reviewed April 18, 2014 via mobile

The atmosphere is casual and very welcoming! The food was great and the portions were excellent for us. The location and the views are super and it is definitely worth spending time and money here. We will return when we travel through again!
