South Beach Grill is a cool little restaurant that’s close to the water, and which uses this locale as an inspiration for its tasty, seafood-heavy menu. Serving lunch and dinner in the nicely decorated inside dining area, as well the expansive waterfront patio, this chic café is a fine place to dive into a big, beachy meal.

Both the lunch and dinner menus are a little unique but vast, with appetizers, small plates, salads, and lunch and dinner specialties designed to appeal to big appetites. Hungry patrons will want to start with the southern fried black eyed peas, the pulled pork flatbread, or the seafood nachos – which is a favorite among frequent diners. For lunch, munch on a fresh flatbread or wrap, like the chicken salad flatbread sandwich or the buffalo chicken wrap, or dive into a heart shrimp Po’boy, grouper tacos, or decadent shrimp and crab mac and cheese. For dinner, patrons will want to check out the chalkboard specials for the absolutely freshest seafood available, like Atlantic grouper or flounder, or can enjoy a satisfying range of rotating entrees, like seafood lasagna, NY strip, or Carolina Osso Bucco with tender NC pork. Always filling, with fresh ocean breezes and prime views, South Beach Grill is a celebration of coastal eating at its biggest and best.
