“Best View in Southport”
Reviewed 18 June 2014

Feels like Times Square with all the boats, birds and beers. Locals hangout and you will meet newcomers here too. If you want a feel for Southport head here and strike up a conversation you will be amazed what you will discover especially if you plan to move to the area. Full bar but no frozen concoctions, beer and wine. No food just beer and friends enjoying the scenery. Entertainment on Saturdays.

“Fun Bar”
Reviewed 15 June 2014

After having dinner in town, we went for a drink. What a fun bar. The atmosphere was great....being right on the water. Friendly and laid back.

“Great Find”
Reviewed 12 May 2014

Simple, no frills no fluff. A bar and a great view. Sat out on the deck and just watched the boats go by. Wonderful way to spend the afternoon

“Best waterside bar between Cape May and Key West”
Reviewed 24 April 2014 via mobile

Like being in Times Square where Broadway, 7th Avenue, and 42nd street all come together. Catch all the boaters especially on the weekends. Catch a regatta from the deck, watch pelicans soar, ibises, gulls and dolphins frolic in the waters. Enjoy live entertainment on weekends and rub elbows with the locals at the bar that doubled as Ivan's Seafood Shack in the movie SAFE HAVEN. Enjoy a meal at one of the local eateries after enjoying your favorite beverage while enjoying the incredible sunsets. Opens at 4:00 during the week and 2:00 on weekends. The only negative limited parking you may have to walk a block or so to reach the establishment. A must visit while in the area.
