“Best dinner on the island?”
Reviewed November 15, 2012

Had one of the best dinners anywhere on Topsail this summer - amazing fresh seafood dinners, beautifully prepared. Not cheap, but entirely memorable!

“Shrimp and Grits are not to be Missed!”
Reviewed October 18, 2012

Karin was very accommodating when the wine wasn't just quite right. The shrimp and grits were amazing, with Andouille sausage and a wonderful sauce. Three of the six of us truly enjoyed it.
Chicken Picante prepared especially for one of us by the chef was scrumptious, just as she remembered from an earlier visit.The burgers were very good as well.

“Just so-so”
Reviewed September 30, 2012

I dined here today with my daughter. Our intent was to have a late breakfast/brunch. Arrived at the restaurant around 11:20 and had to wait a VERY long time to be seated. There was no one in front of us waiting to be seated, just no hostess at the desk to assist. There were at least 3 servers in the restaurant who saw us waiting, but not one of them acknowledged us. Not "someone will be with you in just a moment", no "hello", nothing! By the time we got seated, reviewed the menus and ordered our breakfast it had been nearly 20 minutes since we entered the restaurant. The waiter took our order only to come back 5 minutes later to say they were no longer serving breakfast (which we had ordered) and we would need to order something off of the lunch menu. Major disappointment, especially for my daughter. We ordered from the lunch menu, a Caesar Wrap and a Shrimp Burger. The wrap was okay, nothing special. The shrimp burger was disappointing, just fried shrimp on a bun with lettuce and tomato, no sauce or other garnish. Overall, service continued to be slow and between that and the blah food I don't think we'll be going back. I was really expecting something different, especially based on the photos of the food and restaurant that are posted on their website. Neither one resembled what is on their webpage.

“Excellent Place!”
Reviewed September 27, 2012

We went to the Beach Shop & Grill with my husband for dinner. It was really nice. The service was a bit slow (they kept apologizing), but it is the off season and we were in no hurry! It actually was nice to sit there, chat and enjoy our meal. The food was all very, very good. The waiter was super nice. We will totally be back! We loved the atmosphere and the food. Go, you won't regret it!

“Great Atmosphere, Great Food, Great Service”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

The Beach Shop and Grill has wonderful burgers and desserts. All of the staff there are extremely friendly and professional and the atmosphere is very warm and inviting. We will definitely be going here every time we are in Topsail Beach. The little store that is attached to the restaurant is also a great spot and if you are a dog lover, their is a great little Bull Dog named Annabelle that is in the store sometimes ;o) We highly recommend this spot !
