Like a beach bar, but on the river. Food is pretty good but nothing elaborate. Very busy during the summer months. Expect a wait if near lunch or dinnertime.

Provisions is a very casual seafood shack located on the cape fear river in southport. It's very popular with locals like myself as well as with visitors It's a " not be missed" place for lunch or dinner right on the waterfront.

The food at Provision Company is great. I love the crab cakes. Don't like the potato salad-too salty. The dining experience is wonderful on the waterfront. Weekends are busy and so is the summer season. We try to go around 4 to avoid the crowds

Enjoy the views of the water while enjoying a variety of dishes. Very laid back comfortable place. You place your order at the front and get your own beverage. A server does bring your meal. Delicious crab cakes, boiled shrimp and cheeseburgers.

Food was great. Staff helpful. We had the Grouper salad & Lunch special - shrimp & crab cakes. Confusing way to order but staff was helpful to lead you through. Drove the boat up to the dock and tied up for lunch.

Neat place to visit. High pace, great music and your typical sandwich. The staff is friendly. They will ask for an item to mark your table, you enter a small area upfront/grill right there - order food give your name, get a drink and find...More
