Delicious fusion cooking. They also have some standard selections, but their real art is in dishes where they combine elements from different traditions: Asian, Southern U.S., Mediterranean, etc... The grilled octopus is very good, the shrimp and grits is excellent. The trick is in how...More

We went here one night on our August beach vacation. The deviled eggs, wings & peach salad were all delicious as were the scallops. Our server was very good - & the food came fast. We will be back!

Open Year round, Just 133 steps to the Atlantic ocean. Beach side restaurant serving locally sourced seafood, produce, and meats. Coastal gastropub cuisine, extensive wine, list, handcrafted cocktails, Tap and craft beers. Happy Hour 4pm -6pm. We start with what we call our kitchens mantra from Julia Child; "You don't have to cook fancy or complicated masterpieces, just good food from fresh ingredients." Our interpretation is to not get in the way of the food, let the ingredients speak for themselves. We mix this altogether with a nice selection of handcrafted cocktails (a must these days), craft brews, and wines, throw it all together in a relaxed beach cottage atmosphere, and try our best to provide you with the friendliest service we know how. Outdoor patio dining, There you have it: Shorebreak Lodge.
