We have eaten here a couple of times. We do like the Food - Fish Tacos Especially, but the service always seems to be slow. They are busy All The Time so you would expect them to be prepared for that. It's a great location right on the water.

We've always had great food here. Whether it's quick drinks and appetizers or a full-on dinner, there are options everyone will like. The seafood is superb, fresh and often very creative. The Italian dishes are spectacular. The sandwiched always hit the spot. Service in this town can be spotty, but we'v never had a bad experience here, which is saying... More

I won't be to harsh. I feel this place doesn't have an identy. It is some where between Fishy Fishy and Provisions both geographically and quality To be smack in the middle of these two restaurants you would think the service and food would be better.

Friday & Saturday nights from 7-10pm live music! Fun on the water environment. Awesome Italian food all homemade & fresh! A great way to relax and enjoy an evening in Southport. Sit by the outdoor fire for cooler winter nights enjoying cocktails!!!
