My husband and I had a late lunch here on a Thursday afternoon recently after just arriving for a 3 day week-end on the bay. I was very impressed with the entire experience! The good selection of craft beer was definitely a draw for us, but they have a great menu, the service was outstanding, it was very comfortable and... More

We met Dean (owner) at breakfast and he said he was doing souvlaki and moussaka.... So we had to go. It was great as usual. Can't believe wait to see the extension finished.

This small pizza restaurant is always packed with locals and offers much more than pizza -- though their pizzas are good. Dinner specials change daily. Beer offerings always good.

Mathews only has about four open-in-the-evening restaurants. Fortunately, all of them are good, but Southwind Pizza offers the best value and, in my opinion, the most memorable experience. Beware! Even in the off-season we found it very crowded on a Friday nite. They sort of take reservations, but that really only gives you a pass to the front of the... More

Fun and friendly place with amazing food. So happy to find gluten free pizza just as good as the real thing. Husband had excellent fish, fresh and perfectly cooked.

Southwind, although famous for its delicious pizzas, is an excellent place to enjoy a Sunday brunch. Four of us went at 10:00 a.m. and were pleased to get a table immediately. The food was delicious, coffee hot and rich and the service was outstanding. Prices also were reasonable. What more could you ask for?

Don't let the name fool you. Yes, the Pizza is outstanding but the nightly specials cannot be missed. The menu includes Salads, Pizzas and Sandwiches, available daily for lunch and dinner. BUT the first page of the menu changes twice daily...lunch and dinner. I must warn you....specials sell out. The menu includes fresh ingredients..not frozen. Seafood is bought locally and... More

This was a special Sunday Brunch day and the Southwind Pizza was chosen in Mathews, VA for our small gathering. Our friends chose the place and they were spot on with this restaurant. It is very quaint, comfortable, affordable, fresh food cooked the way you want it. The owner greeted us and sat briefly at our table to let us... More
