We ate here 2 nights ago and it was great. The small beach atmosphere was cozy and comfortable and the wait staff was great. I had the chicken napoleon, which was awesome. We all enjoyed our meal and would recommend this place to all that visit. The only problem was the hour wait, it it was worth it

Met friends for dinner and it was good, just not awesome. I had scallops and they were tasty. We decided next time we go we will get small plates and share. Cornbread was good!

My husband and I are visiting the area. We went to South Beach Grill for dinner because we ate there last year and it was very good. We were both very disappointed this year. I ordered sea scallops which were very tiny and served on a huge mound of risotto. The scallops had no flavor and basically we paid for... More

Excellent food and service! We have been many times as it is not too far from home and we often take guests! No one has ever had a bad meal!

Ate at South Beach Grill because it's #2 on trip advisor. It was OOOKAYY... not great. Super disappointed because we had one night to eat some good seafood. It wasn't terrible but for $26 I expected the Linda grouper which has been on their menu for 20 years to have more flavor. My daughter ordered fried shrimp. Again just ok... More

Great little dive of a place. Just off the beach, it's a casual setting with some fine seafood. Really good shrimp and fish options

Read many good reviews for this place. Did not live up to any of them. Drinks were inconsistent. Slow service. Fried shrimp was way over cooked to the point it couldn't be eaten. Best part was the fried black eyed peas. If you want to try these and I recommend you do, order it go and take it home. Way... More

Looking for places to eat and the South Beach Grill had an interesting menu. We started off with the Carolina Spiced Shrimp and were not disappointed. We had the Wedge Salad and it was ok. My husband had the Grouper Linda and enjoyed it very much. I had the Sweet Potato Crusted Flounder and it was very good. Wine had... More
