One July evening, we tried the many hotspots of Wilmington and were shut out of every restaurant. South Beach Grill fit us in, gave us an excellent table, provided attentive service, and the food was well prepared, hot, and tasted great. Drinks, refills, and service...More

Two couples had a nice lunch here. Both of our friends had the huge salad combo and my wife and I split a thick hamburger special with fried green tomatoes. Very good

Fenomenal view, right on the beach, great wooden cottage deco, great bar, and a friendly staff. Great music ambiance. The food was unfortunately mediocre, with lots of room for improvement. It didn’t taste fresh and it seemed as though it was frozen. I would consider...More

We went to South Beach Grill for lunch. Being from Texas, I had to order the, "Bless Your Heart Salad." For anyone that is a lettuce snob-like me, this is your salad. A stalk of Romaine Lettuce covered in beets, Peruvian peppers and gorgonzola cheese,...More

The food is very good. The dinner menu is surprisingly inadequate though. If you want a small side salad with your entree, ask the server. It's not listed on the menu. If you want grilled shrimp instead of fried, ask the server- it's available but...More

The service was pretty good and the waiter attentive. The food is quite good,but given the price I thought they servings would be a little larger. We will return, but I suppose I will order an appetizer first.

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.
