Southport water lovers who are in the mood for a breezy lunch, dinner, or late bite will want to head to the Dead End Saloon & Fish Factory. Located in between historic Downtown Southport and Oak Island along Fish Factory Road, this restaurant and bar features parking for vehicles, docking for vessels cruising by, and plenty of views to go around.
The restaurant is located directly at the South Harbour Marina and overlooks the Intracoastal Waterway, which ensures that all patrons can relax with a glimpse of the water in the backdrop. The menu is casual but enticing, with a big helping of appetizers, as well as a selection of quesadillas, sandwiches, and entrée-sized house favorites that include seafood specialties and chicken or steak dishes. For something light, order a plate of Buffalo Shrimp, fresh local clams, calamari, or one of the fresh salads, or try one of the coastal quesadillas, like the crab and shrimp. For something more substantial, peruse the seafood entrees which include fish and chips, seared Ahi tuna, and the unique but tasty Crab Toast with Imperial Sauce and a side salad. With lots of options, (especially for seafood lovers), and an unbeatable view, the Dead End Saloon & Fish Factory is a true taste of the Cape Fear coastline.
