Great seafood place, on the water, with a live band on Saturday night. Great appetizers and entrees, not expensive. Went with the Carolina Platter, a home run.

First time here, my husband and I each ordered the fish and chips. We could have easily split the basket----huge. The fish fresh tasting with minimal breading. A place not to miss!!

This place is "OK"......pricing is a little high for what it is. Food was good as was the service. They were both what one should expect.

The view was nice overlooking the water. The service was good and the food average. The mixed drinks contained little liquor. There is a large parking lot serving the area, but finding a space can be challenging at times.

I love Southport. I was there in April and we went to a delightful restaurant on the water. I returned this past weekend to the Fishy Fishy in Southport. I ordered a Margarita, fried green tomatoes, and fried oysters. They were all delicious. My friend ordered fish tacos with barbecue sauce which she wasn't fond of, but it is an... More

Was just recently in Southport for the day and really enjoyed walking around the town and decided to have lunch at the Fishy Fishy Cafe. Had the wings and my wife had the crab dip. Wings were just ok but the crab dip was really good. Looking forward to a return trip to Southport but would probably eat elsewhere.

Visited Southport and stopped at Fishy Fishy for a beer and munchies after a walk downtown. We had a big breakfast and were not hungry but wanted to enjoy a cool sunny day with a nice view. The place is very welcoming, casual, and the service very friendly. Cajun Mahi-mahi bites were very good. Very relaxing time with great friends!... More

The clam chowder is amazing. We had to wait 15 minutes for a new batch to be ready, but it was worth the wait. I enjoyed the salmon pesto sandwiches with goat cheese, bacon, and tomato. My husband loved his calamari...definitely recommended! Our waiter, Joe, in the fish bowl, was friendly and efficient. We will be back the next time... More
