22 North is a highly acclaimed Wrightsville Beach restaurant that serves up classic southern fare with a Creole and French flair. Located on Lumina Avenue, just a block or so away from the Causeway to the beach, this fresh restaurant is one of the region’s favorite destinations for a tempting evening of fine dining cuisine.

The menu changes regularly, (almost daily), and an array of daily offerings is often splattered on the specials board enticing patrons to settle in for a big meal. Tasty entrees can include coastal staples like shrimp and grits, Outer Banks scallops, and Mahi Mahi, while meat eaters may be tempted by the classics like Porterhouse pork chop or duck confit. Patrons can start with a fresh appetizer, like the seasonal crab bruschetta, shrimp remoulade, or pork cheek and grits, and patrons will want to save plenty of room for dessert, which can include anything from seasonal berry tarts or cobblers to decadently rich chocolate cake. Because the menu changes so often, diners won’t quite know what to expect, but the short and flavorful menu is sure to have a surprising dish or two that will satisfy any foodie. Good for late-night cocktails and indulgent meals, 22 North is changing the way Wrightsville Beach fans envision a fine dining experience.
