We vacation 30 miles from Southport but this is the place to go for great seafood. The summer vacation season was slowing down but this place was packed. Gumbo was very good and not too spicy. Tuna was perfectly cooked to order. Shrimp and grits very good.
Surf and turf was excellent and the beef was cooked perfectly like the seafood. Attentive, well-trained local staff very interested in great service and Southern hospitality..

The seafood is always prepared to perfection. I mostly order the seafood platter, have the fish and and shrimp blackened, the oysters and crab cake are fried. The sides are always good. The service is attentive. The atmosphere is comfortable.

The best place to eat in Southport. They are open at 5 in the evening. Best to make a reservation do you don't have to wait. All the dishes I tried were wonderful. The prime rib is to die for!
