Good food, casual atmosphere, Iconic restaurant in Southport. Often times there are long waits, especially for large groups during the summer months, but worth the wait. Grab a beer from the cooler (honor system) go out to the pier and enjoy the wait.

Walk in the door, place your order immediately, find a seat and the conversation barely gets started and your food is being delivered. Fresh local seafood, good burgers and many leave with a hat or t-shirt they purchase as a keepsake. Can't beat the views...More

Dockside casual dining with tasty seafood. Quirky system allows ordering your food, getting your own drink, finding a table and listening for wait staff to call your name. The "honor system" allows you to pay as you leave. Intriguing restaurant that was jam packed. Fun!
