I normally do not even eat crab cakes but my husband had me try one. Delish! I always get 2 because having just one is ridiculous. It's not a fancy place but I have never been disappointed. Excellent food and the service is always on point.

I was born and raised in Southport, N.C. home of the 4th of July parade. When I tell you that this is the best place for the fresh seafood that you are looking forward to. It gets really packed and have waiting lines but trust you me I would wait. Wonderful place

Atmosphere is memorable, next to the water where you can watch boats go by. Laid back spot that handles volumes of visitors with a simplified menu and order approach. Food is good but I wouldnt go so far as to call it great.

Best crab cakes hands down. The wait is usually long so don't be in a hurry. Once you receive your meal you will understand why the wait is long. The honor system For beer and wine is great for those who like to serve themselves. We go there every time we visit Southport.

Very friendly staff, nice deck to sit by the water but the food is undesirable. Poorly seasoned, taste and odor of unfresh fish/shrimp, the only side that was tasty were the french fries. Even the salad and dressing were not appetizing.

The Provision is a unique place on the harbor. The Tuna wrap is excellent. The food is fresh and prepared well.

Southern Living Magazine keeps hyping this supposedly down-home eatery as "tops." And it does have the advantage of being on the scenic waterfront of the Southport Marina where customers wait in lines out the door to order platters and then select their own beverages on the honor system out of an inside refrigerator. Somehow they are made to feel privileged... More

Definitely eat the Seafood here, though the burgers are also ok. Casual coastal atmosphere, with a lovely view and nice service. Be sure to bring a hat.

We go here in all our spring and summer visits to Southport. The crab cakes are the best around. The wait is sometimes long, but always worth it.
