Food was, at best, average. Most meals lacked taste except for salt. We all got something different, including the fresh catch specials, but no one was overly impressed.

A super choice when in Wrightsville!! Gluten Free can be a tricky thing when visiting a restaurant, but South Beach put allergy anxiety at ease. They were super understanding and knowledgeable about the menu and gluten free options. There were a number of choices that...More

We wondered into this restaurant because of the covered outside seating overlooking Bank's Channel. The menu is varied and creative. Seafood is a main feature, but there is much more. Inside seating and small bar too. Good service. We would definitely go back.

Amazing food and service with chalkboard specials. Great pet friendly outdoor patio area with amazing sunset views. They can get really busy so be sure to call ahead. We've had lunch and dinner and both visits were wonderful. Definitely a must try!

This restaurant had the worst service ever. Not only did my food come an hour and a half after I had arrived, but the water, lemonade, and other water-based drinks tasted like water that had been mopped up earlier that day. Disgusting. Would not recommend!...More

We are overlooking the scenic anchorage on Banks Channel, located on beautiful Wrightsville Beach, North Carolina. Our restaurant has been the Local's favorite since 1997. We welcome our guests with consistent, creative cuisine served in a friendly, casual atmosphere. You can enjoy a great burger sitting outside on our patio for lunch or experience the unique, eclectic, regional cuisine at dinner of our Chef. His menu highlights the bounty of Sea and Land, locally sourced.We also have Gluten Free/ reduced items.
