My husband and I like to try new restaurants all the time when we visit new places and usually we only eat one time at a place so that we can try other places during our visit. The Provision Company was so good that we ate there for lunch on Friday and went out of the way to go on... More

I love this place.. The owners, the location, the food, the atmosphere, the crowd, the city, the view - it's all top notch.

Very difficult docking with our 44 ft sailing vessel. With help from staff and few customers, we made it. Dinner excellent value. Had seafood platter. Well prepared fried foods. Considering free dockage and good dinner, A1 choice for us.

Get a real feel for NC coastal life. Excellent catches, outdoor seating, great service and nice views of the water.

My family spends a week at the beach each year and we always take the ferry over to Southport to eat at The Provision Company. We love the rustic, simplistic atmosphere. You order as you go in, grab a beverage, and find a table outside right on the water. Our table tried a number of menu items, grouper salad, salmon... More

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
