This place is rocking - literally! Live music on a Friday night with the wind at your back and the water splashing under your feet create the ultimate cocktail for fun and relaxation. This is a must visit for anyone in Southport!

We stopped for a drink after walking around Southport. The drinks are cold and the views are perfect. Kids are welcome before 7. Mine enjoyed a Shirley Temple while watching the boats go by.

Great 270 degree view of the Cape Fear River and Southport Marina. Visit either before or after dining at a restaurant in the Yacht Basin as no food is served. Also, amazing sunset views are a standard offering.

This establishment is primarily a bar directly on the waterfront. Only snacks and bar food are served. Location is great in warm weather since it is all open.

This is a pretty large outside friendly dockside bar. It is perfect for an after dinner drink, and to watch the sunset from a raised adirondack chair.

No food here, just drinks, beer was $4.00. Seems a lot of locals come here to meet up. Not much sitting room, mostly standing out on piers over the water. Great place to wait for restaurants nearby. $1.00 for yearly membership, which is a NC...More
