It had been some time since we had been to the South Beach Grill, may be too long. Our experience was great on this visit. Parking is limited but with a little effort this can be resolved. The staff is very well trained and exceeds expectations. We found the our menu choices well prepared. The Caesar salad was crisp with... More

We were pleasantly surprised by this understated restaurant right on the main street in Wrightsville Beach. We asked the waitress for her opinion of what the best entree was and she did not disappoint. The Grouper Linda was excellent! Not only was the entree great, but the bread, cornbread and homemade butter/spread was great too. The service was fast, nice... More

This is the best place to eat on the beach. Wonderful menu and fantastic food. Grouper Linda is best thing on menu. Not cheap, but well worth it. Don't miss this if at the beach.

The seafood nachos are really great! It would have been the best dip I've ever had but it's spread onto really good hot tortillas. I had the grouper which is also very good. My wife's risotto was very flavorful but a little under cooked. The restaurant is very small. It has a nice patio outside but it was to cold... More

We wanted to try someplace new but we're not really impressed. The place looks nice and is a cosy environment but the food we received was so so. The calimari was not hot or crispy. Rather it was lukewarm and limp. My grilled shrimp tacos were good. I liked the salsa. My companion's fried shrimp basket did not please her.... More

The people welcoming and waiting on us were cheerful and friendly and prices were reasonable for the quality of food we got. The Grouper Linda is one of their specialties and we both ordered it and found out why. Would readily go back and recommend to friends. I imagine that the parking during tourist season is a challenge to say... More

I live locally but have never been to this restaurant. Our group of 10 enjoyed dinner last night. Service was fantastic as was the food. I had the grouper Linda and brought half of it home.. It was as good leftover as it was last night. It was a generous portion with crabmeat and seasonal veggies and mashed potatoes. I... More

Me and my wife decided to travel to the beach this weekend. We ate dinner there with the hope to eat seafood. Their pecan crusted grouper stuffed with crab is to die for. The waitresses are super friendly and the restaurant is cozy and very nice..... if it was for me I would eat there every single night!!!

Great local seafood, good service and friendly staff. We will definitely go back the next time we are in the area. I had the tuna poke small plate and the shrimp and grits small plate. My husband had buttery grouper. It was very enjoyable.

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.
