Classic restaurant over the water; think "shrimp shack", but bigger. Very fresh seafood, especially shrimp. Excellent steamed shrimp, and the grouper salad is a must, if they have it (like tuna salad, but made with grouper).

This place came highly recommended by a friend and my husband and I were blown away by the delicious food here.

We went to the Provision company twice during our week long vacation in Southport. Terrific service and good! The steamed shrimp and crab cakes were my favorite. I also enjoyed their tomato and cucumber salad. Top notch place! We will be back!

Had lunch special and the grouper salad plate both were awesome. Ate at the bar very nice view. Enjoyed some of the best painkillers I've had in a long while. Friendly staff.

This was our second time. After 2 years, its as good as we remembered. The special with boiled shrimp and crab cake was great as before. Very fast service even when busy. All outside dining by the water-it was 75 and sunny today so perfect.
