Great steamed shrimp and crab cakes. Outside eating and fast services. They also have a full bar so you can enjoy a beer or glass of wine. Definitely going back to this restaurant. Kids like to watch the birds and boats come in and dock...More

When you enter this place, listen carefully to the host(ess) out front. The way you order, sit, and pay can be a little confusing here. The restaurant sits right on the water, so the views are fantastic. The beers are reasonably priced and acquired via...More

Down at Wrightsville for the week -took the ferry to Southport- had the best shrimp I've have in a long time. I would highly recommend The Provision Company!

My family of 9 came here for lunch. We came because of the reviews. It was good. The cheeseburger and onion rings were yummy. The staff was very nice.The views are great. I wouldn't say it was out of this world but it is good.

Our party of 9 stopped here to eat lunch on a Wednesday around 2:00. There were a number of people waiting outside. We gave the lady our name and the number of people in our party. After that we were allowed to get our drinks...More

I had the crabcake sandwich with onion rings. Food was delivered hot, fast and delicious! We were lucky enough to get a table on the side by the water/harbor. Anywhere you sit, it is beautiful! Food is tasty and I will definitely be returning!
