Still seems to be the most popular restaurant in Southport. Good casual dining- great boiled shrimp- with Old Bay .Good sweet iced tea.

Visited for lunch and loved it. Had the Daily special and an order of conch fritters. The seating is outside but covered. No frills just good food.

Great lunch spot overlooking the water. Good food and wonderful atmosphere. Beer and wine are on the honor system. Views are amazing. Get there early for lunch, because by 11:30 the line is quite long.
