“Raw Fish and Comfy Booths”

Southport Gourmet and Sushi Bar
Ranked #32 of 93 Restaurants in Southport
Restaurant details
Reviewed July 26, 2017 via mobile

Restaurant Style: Asian Fusion and Sushi

Last Visit: 07/23/17

Ambiance: Middle class oriental dark and close with with very nice scenes in the tabletops. Just once I’d like a restaurant with no tv screens but you won’t get it here. At least the sound is turned off.

Service: Speedily seated with drinks offered. Service was attentive and cordial. We got there early, 5:30ish.

For Kids: pbj, pb&honey, about 5 $6-items. (This seems more like a grownup place than a happy meal farm.)

Hours: lunch through dinner, seven days a week.

Expense Account: Moderate. Pay on your way out.

Food: Nice variety. The big appeal has to be the sashimi and sushi. Lots of variety there though no vegetarian offerings are listed. Not being sushi fans,we enjoyed a light crunchy vegetable roll, and chicken teriyaki. The chicken was tasty with a clear sauce. The miso soup came light on the salt so the tofu and vegetables shone through. We fall back on moo goo gai pan as a reliable if often scantily seasoned dish in oriental restaurants. This time the moo goo came unexpectedly peppered so it disappointed us. The menu also offers beef, shrimp, and tempura entrees.

Adult Beverages: You can get a beer here, wine, or one of the ubiquitous fruity mixed drinks.

The hours of operation states that they are open until 10:00 on Friday evenings. Tried to get food at 9:00 and they said they decided to shut down the kitchen early so no service. Not cool.

Above averag, lots of verge choices...ingredients clearly stated for each item. This is particularly good if you're a picky eater. Both meals were very fresh, not covered in sauces or spices.

We like Southport Gourmet because we can take our dog there and sit outside.
We didn't realize that a restaurant would allow smoking where you can eat outside.
I give 1 star for the fact they should look at there policy and not have smoking at all. We ended up leaving and not ordering food. Ruined Mother's Day dinner.

We were there in a Friday night between 8 & 10. There were not many people there which was surprising. The place is well decorated and the service was great. We had sushi and I would call it OK. Being so close to the ocean we figured it would have been better, but we were not disappointed. Overall, a good experience.
