“Great seafood, friendly staff!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 24, 2012

We ate dinner at this restaurant during a recent stay at The Inn at Tabbs Creek. We did a little exploring during the afternoon of small, but quaint downtown Matthews and stopped by the restaurant to take a look at the posted menu. A waiter named Chris came out and told us about the restaurant. He sold us on the fresh, local seafood entrees that were the specials for the night, so we returned for dinner. There was a short wait, because it is one of the few restaurants in Matthews, and the food is good. We settled on crabcakes and broiled rockfish. Both were so fresh and delicious. Chris was our waiter. He was friendly, informative, and a great server. I noticed that the locals seemed to be enjoying pizzas and burgers , so I will try them when I return.

“Superb service, amazing food, but as Mathews grows so does the prices for food.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 29, 2011

We recently visited Southwind Pizza and found it quite delicious. While we did not have pizza we did enjoy several of their specials to include the asparagus quiche, clam sandwich and the mozzeralla/tomato served on ciabatta bread, my favorite. The clam sandwich won over all, the ciabatta bread for my sandwich was amazing. The asparagus quiche comes with an array of local fruits which made it quite refreshing; however, one of the dishes we ordered was not so refreshing.

The chicken sandwich was very disappointing after having the other three amazing dishes. A bun, chicken and what seemed like pizza sauce smeared inside. It was bland and one important thing to remember you order what you get. The chicken sand which sits all alone on the large plate. Sides are not included here, so if you want anything extra coleslaw, potato salad or chips, all will cost you extra. This is becoming the norm on this area and it’s rather frustrating. What I paid for 4, I could easily gone to say Chilis or TGIFs with all got all the fixings and and two appetizers. BUT with that said, I AM NOT comparing this place to a mainstream restaurant chain, just the cost/portions of the meals at Southwind Pizza.

My only recommendations is to include the sides, $7 for a chicken sandwich and have to add another $1.50 for potato salad seems a little much. Other than that, the service was amazing and I highly recommend this place.

Next time I will try the pizza, it’s whats the buzz in town.

All the food they serve there is great. Very odd hours of operation.
Weekend nights in the summer there's live music.
