Robust menu of fresh made to order sea food. A small restaurant with only four tables and bar seating. Don't let the size stop you. The service is fantastic. The staff are engaging and energetic. The food is above average. The pricing is very reasonable....More

Met a lady on the tram while on Bald Head, who recommended this restaurant in Southport. Was one of the absolute best burgers ever. Would go there again right away.

If you like a good bar mixed with fresh food and great ambiance. Let Dale and the gang allow you to relax and enjoy each other. Not a lot of seats but a great atmosphere. Just down from the Wine Shop, Uncorked by the Sea.

Great little location tucked away in the heart of SPT. Tired of the same ol' same ol' stuff drop by Loco's! Great unique selections! Great drink selections. Note...much like many of the restaurants in this area, it's really small so be aware for large groups...More
