My husband and I made a special side trip here for lunch on our way from Myrtle Beach to home in Maryland. I'd read about The Provision Company in every article on the area I put my hands on and just had to check it...More

This is a must stop for any seafood lover! The seafood is prepared fresh daily. The shrimp and crab cakes are amazing. The restaurant is on the water which adds to the ambiance. It is outside dining so dress appropriately.

Steamed shrimp are plump and sweet. Price is good. Forget the deviled crab. Full of breading and corn on the cob is water logged Fun place on water with honor system for drinks Would come back again to try other items on menu

This is a wonderful place I eat at each time I am in the Southport area. The grouper salad is awesome (and I don't really eat fish). Dine outside on the water, with a refreshing breeze and a great hometown casual atmosphere!

We went here because someone in our group knew people who ate here. It was a walk thru shack that you order from and get your drinks from, all on honor system. Then there is only outdoor seating. It is covered but when it is...More
