What a wonderful experience at South Beach Grill in Wrightsville Beach, near Wilmington, North Carolina!
The Blockade Runner Beach Resort has a complimentary car service, and we took it to the South Beach Grill. I almost choose to sit outside under the covered porch of the restaurant to have the scenic view of the sound but instead chose to sit inside. The temperature were perfect outside, but we wanted to get the full experience inside this quaint restaurant. I liked how it had the feel of a small restaurant but it could seat many people.
Our waitress was incredibly helpful in our menu choices.
Even in this very busy restaurant we had great service.
We decided to split an appetizer: Nachos served with slow roasted North Carolina pulled pork. The pulled pork was not overpowering, the chips were so good! We devoured the appetizer. The portions were very generous. It was plenty for two adults and two children.
For my entree, I ordered a flounder Francais “au beurre blanc”, I enjoyed a glass of Pinot Grigio from Oregon with it.
Kids ordered calamari with marinara sauce and a delicious burger. My companion had the smoked chicken tortellini.
My ten year old daughter commented that the portion were generous and that there were two pieces of tomatoes on the burger, unlike the fast food restaurants to which other people have taken her. Both children also thought that the waitress was incredibly friendly, and she was.
My fish was tender, not dry and not overcooked. It was perfect. It was served over mashed potatoes.
Everybody was too full to try the dessert menu, but unanimously we decided we will come again when in Wrightsville Beach.
It was a pleasure to meet the owner and to let him know how pleased we were with our meal.
Great restaurant and very welcoming even with kids!
