I live locally but have never been to this restaurant. Our group of 10 enjoyed dinner last night. Service was fantastic as was the food. I had the grouper Linda and brought half of it home.. It was as good leftover as it was last night. It was a generous portion with crabmeat and seasonal veggies and mashed potatoes. I... More

Me and my wife decided to travel to the beach this weekend. We ate dinner there with the hope to eat seafood. Their pecan crusted grouper stuffed with crab is to die for. The waitresses are super friendly and the restaurant is cozy and very nice..... if it was for me I would eat there every single night!!!

Great local seafood, good service and friendly staff. We will definitely go back the next time we are in the area. I had the tuna poke small plate and the shrimp and grits small plate. My husband had buttery grouper. It was very enjoyable.

Could not wait to go back to South Beach Grill to have the stacked eggplant and shrimp dish. Yummy! My husband had the flounder francais. The staff is friendly and helpful. I would suggest a call ahead reservation. Enjoy!

Quaint grill with some great outdoor seating overseeing the sound. I had blackened grouper tacos for lunch and the rest of the family had sandwiches and burgers. According to them the those were all really delicious. Definitely a spot to return to if you are looking for a casual dining experience on Wrightsville Beach, NC

Tried every one on Island and South Beach Grill is still the best food. The grouper Linda is fantastic. Great friendly service. Great menu. Not cheap, but priced comparable to other nice places and worth every penny.

The food was good. They have an outside area to eat which is nice when the weather is good. The staff were all attentive and friendly. I had the grouper Linda which was really good. It was not a cheap meal but good quality.

You can eat inside or outside. The weather was great and the place wasn't crowded, so we sat outside. My friend had a burger and soup. The chowder was very good, but the burger was average. I had fish tacos which were very good. The prices were average for lunch.

Since I've given up on the Oceanic and the Bluewater Grill bombed out, this was my last hope. Passed it many times, but it didn't look that appealing to me from outside. However, inside and the food was another story. We visited the website and had our selections prepared, but they had a three course $28 meal for a special... More

I visited South Beach Grill on a fairly crowded night just before the Ironman North Carolina weekend. I was able to grab one of the few remaining seats outside on the patio (otherwise, I'm not sure I would have stayed - I want to eat outside when at the beach). I started with the clam chowder, which was excellent. I... More

We are overlooking the scenic anchorage on Banks Channel, located on beautiful Wrightsville Beach, North Carolina. Our restaurant has been the Local's favorite since 1997. We welcome our guests with consistent, creative cuisine served in a friendly, casual atmosphere. You can enjoy a great burger sitting outside on our patio for lunch or experience the unique, eclectic, regional cuisine at dinner of our Chef. His menu highlights the bounty of Sea and Land, locally sourced.We also have Gluten Free/ reduced items.
