We really love this place. We took our guests this week and are never disappointed. Every one of their employees hustles and tries to make every customer satisfied. Don't worry about long lines. They move fast and the experience is worth it.

You’ll enjoy the Provision Company, if for nothing but the view. However, the crab cakes will not disappoint. It’s a very unique experience. You walk in and order at the counter the serve yourself a drink, either fountain or beer or wine. Every seat has...More

Always a great place for steamed shrimp and grouper sandwich. Best steamed shrimp in Southport! Great atmosphere too.

Visited with kids and very limited menu for them, had the shrimp myself which was over cooked and lacking in quality. Food well below standard overall and seating area not great. Wouldn't return again.

Great location with outdoor seating and views of the Intercoastal and marina. But food is just average, but atmosphere is what makes the place unique. If ambiance is high on your list, then go here.

Don't be fooled by its looks. They have the best seafood in town! Crab cakes, tuna, and shrimp are our suggestions. All out of this world! Order when you come in and then seat yourself.

I was looking forward to a return visit to the provision company, after about four years. Myself and three others and we did not enjoy at all the shrimp or the crabcake, which supposedly they are famous for both and we will not go again.

I love going to this restaurant because ordering is simple and the food is amazing. You must order the peel and eat shrimp and the crab cakes. Grab a beer from the fridge, honor system, and sit back and enjoy the view of the water...More
