Reviewed yesterday NEW

we love this place. sit on the screened in porch and watch the sun go down over the inter coastal waterway. Huge birds sit on the pier poles and look unreal. Crab is flown in from Michigan which we thought was funny but it was fresh and wonderful

We came for lunch after a day on the water having two Mahi sandwichs and a Buffalo salad. The fish was good, but was marred by the fact that the roll was not fresh that day or toasted. I ended up getting rid of the bread. The salad was good and very large.

Food is good Service is very nice but they play the game of jacking up the prices of the specials! They should tell you the price when they list them at the table if they are going to be significantly higher than most entrees!! I'll never order another special It was Five to seven dollars more than most entrees Be... More

Have been here many times and never have had a bad meal or experience. Can be crowded during tourist season.

We send everyone that flies in to Cape Fear Regional Jetport for a quick lunch with a view. Food is always on point! They also have my favorite Check 6 Brewing Company Beer (Aerial Aggression) on tap!

Any restaurant that doesn't know that fresh fish is not supposed to smell really "fishy" is not some place you want to eat seafood.

We finally ate here...and probably will never go back. The food is typical crappy touristy food- so many better places to eat than here. The ranch dressing is more filler than flavor. The onion rings are nothing but a vessel of grease. They would do better to change the recipe to a crusty batter...like panko or bread crumbs. The hamburger... More

The fresh catch sandwich was Mahi. I've never seen Mahi served as 4 thin little strips of fish. They looked like scraps or leftovers. It was laughabl

We wanted to get away from the throng in the Southport waterfront for lunch. We drove over to Fish Factory Road, past the park, and into a sunny Marina area where the boats were bobbing. At the end of the road is Dead End Saloon. We sat at the bar and ordered local and NC beers on tap, which were... More

I was recently with a large group of neighborhood women that had lunch at Dead End. The ladies at my table seemed to all enjoy their meals and as always, the atmosphere and view are fun and beautiful. I enjoyed my meal so much that my husband and I went back the next day for an early dinner and had... More
