Stopped in with my wife after a tour of the nuclear plant. Too early for dinner but just in time for drinks and appetizers. Wine was good and the shrimp on pita was delicious -- not too much topping or cheese to mask the nice shrimp. Andrew was a great server and has mastered the ability to say "Thank you."... More

Beautiful location on the water with your choice of indoor or outdoor seating. Menu is limited and food is quite expensive for the quality, with the exception of the fish fry, which was very good. Did not meet our expectations.

Fishy Fishy is a busy spot for both locals and tourists alike. Their food always comes out hot and fresh. Definitely would recommend showing up before the dinner rush on the weekends.

Our first time to Southport and ate at the famous "Fishy Fish". We came the day before they closed for 2 weeks so they were out of flounder, honey mustard, philly cheese stake, mahi bites, but we completely understood. The place was very cute, clean and a great place to go. My fiancé got the paradise cheeseburger and I got... More

Stopped here for lunch around 1:45pm on a misty Saturday. Lots of people were going in for lunch as well, which was a good sign! Greeted and seated right away overlooking the water. Menu varied and reasonably priced. We had the soft shell crabs and ahi tuna salad. Both items were delicious. The sweet potato fries are great. Very nice... More

What I liked: The place was packed and people just kept pouring in as it was the only place open, and the staff were working their buns off but staying calm. Even the manager was delivering food. What I didn't like: The food would be soooooo much better but it is actually ruined by the rolls. I had the tuna... More

Atmosphere was laid back, relaxing with Amazing Fresh Seafood to satisfy everyone's taste buds!....A Must see and taste kind of "Vacationer's Local To Do List" for the South Port area. Surprisingly warm for late January and It was a Hit for this Birthday Girl's lunch! We will be back again...and again!

Silly name but very good food and great atmosphere, very good service, clean. We ate lunch mid week in "off season". Lovely marsh view with shrimp boats at the dock. We will go back again.

I had the special, sort of a BLT with a fried chicken breast added...a challenging mouthful. Rather noisy, service slow.
