This was our second time visiting Topsail and we knew we had to get to The Beach Shop and Grill for dinner! We LOVED the food and service during our first trip two summers ago. Luckily we got there before they closed for the season (November 13) this time. If you are planning on going during the peak season, plan... More

Nice atmosphere, very good food, excellent service. Friendly owner & staff. We were able to get a free dessert for me & a free beer for my husband for Veterans' Day. Menu is a bit pricey.

I'm embarrassed to publish how many times we ate at the Beach Shop and Grill in October. Suffice it to say that in 8 days we had a wonderful dinner, breakfast and at least three shrimp burgers. The shrimp and grits at dinner are a Southern dream. My friends were over the moon for the she crab soup at lunch... More

We try to visit after Sunday morning walks on the beach in South Topsail. Love the atmosphere and the people!

Best grits ever. Home fries aren't too shabby either! We always try to eat there at least once whenever we visit Topsail. Have only eaten breakfast there but the service and food have never disappointed!

The food was very good, but a bit expensive. Our server could have been better. My husband doesn't like asparagus. But our server was reluctant to offer a replacement. However I did insist. He got fries not knowing what his options were. (The table next to ours had fries.). The next table got a beautiful serving of bread. We didn't.... More

We tried several other restaurants during our 2 week stay and none came close to the Beach Shop and Grill! It is not a hamburger joint, tho they do have burgers, or a deep fried type place, rather more upscale and gourmetish. If you are staying in Surf City it's definitly worth the 6 mile drive to eat here.

We've been to the Beach Shop and Grill during our annual visit to Topsail since the late 1970s. The restaurant has "evolved" from a typical beach shack to a bit more sophisticated dining establishment. That said, we've always enjoyed every aspect of our meals, from atmosphere, to food, to service. We plan on 2 more lunches this week and hopefully... More

After trying the other places on TI, this is absolutely the best restaurant. Delicious food and cozy atmosphere. A LIIT from Virginia is a must. The desserts are to die for. Vaca doesn't officially start until we've had dinner here. Keep up the great work guys!

If you like extremely over priced food and noise then this place is for you. First time visit here. We were seated at a small table crammed among tables and right in front of the adjoining beach shop that opens up into the shop. It felt like we were in a damn mall. Noise anyone? The food- there are plenty... More
