After several nights of mediocre to bad dining on Topsail Island, we were presently surprised by the Breezway. It has that funky seafood-dive look from the outside, next to a motel that has seen it's heyday, but inside is bright and open with pretty views of the marsh and Sound, and if you time it right, a beautiful sunset.
Friendly greeters and an on-the-ball server gave us a good first-impression. The menu is typical southern coastal fare. The wine list is unimpressive, but you don't come here for that. Our group shared the calimari, which was perfectly done in a light batter and tasty red sauce on the side. Four of us who ate the hushpuppies gave them a thumbs-up. Flounder Platter, Soft Shell crabs and the evening special, grilled grouper tacos, were all very good. The crab cakes could have used more crab, less filling.
There were lots of large groups that evening, making the restaurant very noisy. Wait-staff hustled and our food all came out in a timely manner.
