Sorry to tell you but I asked the management and was told a sad and unhealthy fact: they get their shrimp from an Ecuador farm. Doesn't get much worse than this for NC Shrimp economy. I ask before I order shrimp and rarely find restaurants, even on the coast, that serve fresh, , local shrimp. Who does? Fishy Fishy in... More

Had the grouper salad plate. Good portion and waitress was very accommodating as I had my Service Dog with me at an outside table. It's basically an order inside, take outside. Waitress assisted. When paying inside with my dog, the young self sarcastic male cashier/order taker started making obvious load statements about fake service animals and bogus credentials as I... More

We stop by Provisions whenever we are in the area. Neat waterside location and good food at reasonable prices. Order at the counter and pick your drinks from the cooler or fountain and then go find a seat in the dining area (covered patio) along the water. Looking for mixed drinks, they also have a bar out in the dining... More

The staff was so rude we didn't even stay to order lunch. Too many GOOD places in Southport to bother with this unwelcoming place. We did managed to look at the menu before leaving it was limited and basic. I will NEVER go back.

Always a wonderful time here. The view is great while you enjoy your meal in the covered outside dining area. Crab cakes are wonderful. They also have a great burger and fries if you are not in the mood for seafood. A must if you are in the area.

We stopped in based on reviews and we were happy that we did. The seafood chowder is the best I have ever had, nothing has ever even come close. I also had the provision chicken sandwich that had grilled peppers and onions on top, that was great as well.
