My husband and I spent a week at Sunset Beach and on our last day we discovered Gravy Restaurant! We waited in line for almost 30 minutes but it was well worth the wait. I had flounder and it was beyond delish! My husband had the seafood combo. Just perfect! We were both stuffed as we drove away. It's on... More

My family and I decided to dine here after reading all the great reviews and were very disappointed; there is nothing "homemade" about it. We had canned corn, canned green beans, frozen French fries and over processed frozen chicken. If you are brave enough to try it, just take a look at the gazillions of cans in their back room!...

We've vacationed in the Calabash area for years and always see long lines waiting to get in to this restaurant, but we've always passed it by. What a mistake! We decided to stop and check it out this year with our inlaws. The long lines are because the food is soooooo good. The four of us ordered a cross section... More

For what this cute little place is, it deserves 5 stars. Its clean, the service was fast and friendly and the food was better than we expected. My husband had gotten a recommendation about Gravy yesterday, so we tried it for lunch today. Its easy to find with plenty of parking. I ordered the country steak and asked for milk... More

Why is it the best? For a few dollars less than other places, you get good-sized portions of local shrimp, scallops, and flounder, light breaded and fried, but not greasy, served with Stephanie's tasty home-made tartar sauce. And instead of being relegated to choosing the predictable side items of fries and Cole slaw, Gravy's Southern Eatery offers close to a... More

My husband and I made a pact that during our 8 days in the Carolina's that there would be No CHAIN restaurants! So with that being said when we were told by some new friends that if we wanted a Great Meal and a good price then we had to stop here. We were not disappointed. Service was excellent, the... More

Had occasion to visit here this past weekend which was my first time. Small eatery, but great service and food. We had to wait for a table since there were five of us, but it was definitely worth it.
