This establishment is primarily a bar directly on the waterfront. Only snacks and bar food are served. Location is great in warm weather since it is all open.

This is a pretty large outside friendly dockside bar. It is perfect for an after dinner drink, and to watch the sunset from a raised adirondack chair.

No food here, just drinks, beer was $4.00. Seems a lot of locals come here to meet up. Not much sitting room, mostly standing out on piers over the water. Great place to wait for restaurants nearby. $1.00 for yearly membership, which is a NC thing.,

This is a beautiful place to view a sunset in Southport. 270 degree view of the harbor with a nice bar and deck.

Great service for drinks, but we were fooled into thinking this was a restaurant. The Frying Pan was right next door and the locals recommended it. they are owed by the same people.3 stars for the "restaurant". 5 stars for the bar.

A lovely place to stop for a drink before or after dinner. Some nights it can get pretty crowded so don't expect to get a chair. The bartenders are friendly. It would be great if they offered some snacks.

There is no better place to grab a drink than on the water at The Old American Fish Company! The bar is set over the water and evokes a feeling of being on an old-time fishing boat with your buddies. Early in the evening, a school of about 7 dolphins entertained our sights. When they were done with their showmanship,... More
