Stuck between the Provision Company and Fishy Fishy, it is sometimes overlooked, but a great place for lunch and the food is wonderful. Many times will have live music going while you have a drink and eats overlooking the marina.

Sit alongside the pier in Southport watching fishing boats come and go. Not fine dining, but a very enjoyable casual place with good food and drink. A very relaxing way to unwind while enjoying the outdoors in Southport.
