Dining is always made more pleasant when there is a drop dead view. Watching the sunset over the water is delightful. The food and service are very good. The summer menu stresses fish, fresh from the area.

Previously featured on The Food Network and in other notable publications, the Old Fort Pub has become a tradition for over 35 years. Guests enjoy The Old Fort Pub’s “New Southern” favorites inspired with influences from around the globe. An excellent choice for celebrating a birthday, holiday or a romantic evening.
