    Delicious food, beautiful views, friendly staff

    My dog and I had a wonderful lunch here yesterday. We sat on the covered patio and Luna was able to feel safe and secure under the tall table. The staff brought her ice water and were so welcoming. Rather than try to navigate the restroom bathroom as a solo traveler with a dog, I used the nearby public restrooms just up the street. The town offered a dog bowl and hose as well, which was a lovely touch. I hosed my cattle dog/husky mix down to help keep her cool.

    Found us a spot on a busy Saturday Night

    On a busy Saturday night in Southport the good people found us a spot on the back patio for my husband, me, and our pup. Even brought a bowl of ice water out for our Addy along with our drinks. Great food and great people! Highly recommend.
