Our first time to Southport and ate at the famous "Fishy Fish". We came the day before they closed for 2 weeks so they were out of flounder, honey mustard, philly cheese stake, mahi bites, but we completely understood. The place was very cute, clean and a great place to go. My fiancé got the paradise cheeseburger and I got... More

Stopped here for lunch around 1:45pm on a misty Saturday. Lots of people were going in for lunch as well, which was a good sign! Greeted and seated right away overlooking the water. Menu varied and reasonably priced. We had the soft shell crabs and ahi tuna salad. Both items were delicious. The sweet potato fries are great. Very nice... More

What I liked: The place was packed and people just kept pouring in as it was the only place open, and the staff were working their buns off but staying calm. Even the manager was delivering food. What I didn't like: The food would be soooooo much better but it is actually ruined by the rolls. I had the tuna... More

Atmosphere was laid back, relaxing with Amazing Fresh Seafood to satisfy everyone's taste buds!....A Must see and taste kind of "Vacationer's Local To Do List" for the South Port area. Surprisingly warm for late January and It was a Hit for this Birthday Girl's lunch! We will be back again...and again!

Silly name but very good food and great atmosphere, very good service, clean. We ate lunch mid week in "off season". Lovely marsh view with shrimp boats at the dock. We will go back again.

I had the special, sort of a BLT with a fried chicken breast added...a challenging mouthful. Rather noisy, service slow.

Went for lunch last week to get out, as we were getting cabin fever from cold front. We both had the blackened tuna sandwich with cole slaw and sweet potato fries. Delicious! Friendly staff - other plates passing by looked yummy as well. Successful outing

As close as you can come by the safe haven movie in Southport. Lunch near the harbour, overlooking the water, eating easy seafood and fries. Food is not that really special, but also not bad.

Staff and waiter very nice but the food was average or less. Coleslaw was very dry, with out flavor. Fried fish platter was tasteless. Stuffed shrimp was good as was swordfish special. We have tried this place 3x really wanting to love it but will probably not return except maybe for a burger. Too bad, great location and family owned,... More
