Southport Restaurants and Dining

Southport knows great food and serves it up at every turn. An array of colorful and unique restaurants line the Yacht Basin and incorporate stunning views of the conversion of the Cape Fear River, Intracoastal Waterway and Atlantic Ocean. Grab a seat on the porch of one of the town’s favorite waterfront restaurants and feast on local flavors, enjoy the breeze coming in off the water and watch the boats come and go. Or find a window seat in the evening and dine against a backdrop of a brilliant show of colors as the sun sets.

The streets of downtown Southport are also peppered with flavorful dining options. The historic maritime town is the setting of several movies and TV shows, so visitors have the unique opportunity to dine at the same places as some of their favorite on-screen characters. Bistros, coffee shops and bakeries also abound throughout Southport, all just as alluring as the town itself.
