“Great food”
Reviewed April 11, 2013

We always enjoy our lunch are dinner they have above average service. We bring our son and sit outside he gets his own water bowl and treats. He loves going to South Beach Grill as much as we do. Makes a wonderful boat ride over and the staff are great. We are thankful for pet lovers and a great chef which is hard to find all the above in one place.

“Great clam chowder, other food all delicious too”
Reviewed April 3, 2013

We arrived just as they opened for lunch on Easter Sunday. So we had no problem being seated. It was too cool to sit outside so took an indoor table. The service was friendly and helpful. We started with the fried pickles which were thinly sliced and lightly battered. Quite nice, above average. Two of us got clam chowder (we all sampled it and agreed it was first rate - thick and full of clams and potato chunks). The other meals we ordered were:
- fish tacos made with tilapia. 2 tacos with fish fillets. Generous amounts and delicious. Selected a side order of baked beans
- meatloaf covered in BBQ sauce. Delicious. Selected a side order of baked beans
- fried oyster basket with home made chips. The oysters were good but too small of a portion.
- fried fish basket with home made chips

We agreed the home made potato chips are first rate. The baked beans with peaches cooked in with them are a nice touch. Nice enough view of the water. Not ocean view - the bay or river is across the street.

Overall we give this two thumbs up. We will eat here again. We really liked the food, the location, the service. And we love to eat at local places that are not chain restaurants...so this was perfect. It is a smallish place so go early or be prepared you might have a wait for a table...especially if the weather isn't good enough for people to want to sit on the patio. They have their own small parking lot - which is a bit tricky as you have to back out of it the same way you came in. If you have to park on the street be sure to feed the meter - they are relentless about patrolling the area.

“South Beach Grill in Wilmington”
Reviewed April 2, 2013

My husband and I went to this restaurant on the last night of our vacation in Wilmington, NC. It's sort of tucked away so we initially drove past it. Once we got inside it was small and packed which are two things that we like in a restaurant. My husband order the sea bass with linguine and he loved it! I ordered the fried plantation chicken which is stuffed with prosciutto and spinach. I loved it as well although it sat a little heavy in stomach. The waitstaff were friendly and helpful. The food, the staff, and the prices made this stop worth it. Highly recommended for couples and families.

“Great Food”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

The food is always great here and the staff very friendly. I read a review about reservations in which I would like to reply. If they went in the summer there is no reservations, but you can call ahead. They always have fresh seafood and wonderful dishes.....we go year round! My husband and I go and I also go with friends.
