The Cape Fear Restaurant and Lounge is a vintage and family-friendly seafood restaurant that’s perched on the edge of the Cape Fear River in the heart of Downtown Southport. An easy destination for visitors who want a bite to eat after taking a guided or self-propelled walking tour of the historic area, this restaurant serves up cold drinks, and classic seafood dishes in a casual and laid-back atmosphere.
The menu features everything a patron would expect from a traditional seafood restaurant on the water, with a few options for land lovers, including steak and chicken dishes. A specials board advertises the day’s local specials or fresh catches, and all the coastal classic dishes that seafood lovers crave can be found on the hefty menu. Hungry patrons will want to start with the hot crab dip or the creamy, New England style clam chowder, and then move on the fish of the day, shrimp, scallops, Yellowfin tuna, flounder, or one of the other seafood specialties that are found throughout the menu. With a nice selection of salads and light bites, as well as a range of cocktails and cold beers, the Cape Fear Restaurant and Lounge will satisfy a craving for coastal fare in a classic, old-school seafood restaurant environment.
