Surf City Barbeque

Reviewed By jinx35 - West Columbia, SC

Stopped in for lunch and was pleasantly surprised by this restaurant. The owners have spent some money making the interior warm and inviting. Since we were eating late in the day, each couple shared one entree. My wife and I had a small pork plate with fried okra and my in laws had a pork sandwich, slaw on the side and fried okra.

Pork was very tender and had the NC pepper and vinegar sauce. Perfect! Fried okra was hot and crispy. Sweet tea was also very good. Only down side was the hush puppies delivered when we sat down. They would have been a 10 if served hot.

Service was very good and we will return.

If you like cake donuts, this is a great change from Duck donuts. No yeast donuts here and its only negative.

Reviewed By Danigirl25 - Big Rapids, Michigan

We stopped in once we were sure they were open with the off season hours. I had a burger and fries with gravy while my husband had a grilled chicken sandwich and a slaw dog. It was a decent burger, tasted like my dad's right off the grill. I've been to a lot of places with the nostalgic 50's and 60's theme. I was expecting a little more.

Fantastic baked goods & very friendly staff. Everything is baked from scratch. They also sell coffees and other beverages, but, we only bought baked goods so I can not review the coffees. They also have books and gifts for sale.

We were given a recommendation for a very nice restaurant with ocean views by the mother of the owner.

Hunga Bunga Java

Reviewed By zacsmimi1 - Biddeford, Maine

Small shop in a strip mall, very easy to miss. We went in with friends who loved it and were returning. Coffee drinkers will love all the options. (I still have to be tutored when ordering at Starbucks.) I had a Coconut Smoothie which I found to be amazing in texture and taste. Others ordered expresso shots added to their mixes, etc., all 4 were happy with choices. Interior seating area has a couch and comfy chairs, unusual decor kind of laid back, tropical and reminiscent of hideouts in the 70's... huge bookcases full of paperbacks to borrow. TV on in the corner with sports on - the only thing I found unpleasant. Tiny little mellow place, popular with locals.Nice folks.

New York Corner Deli

Reviewed By bfarber - Hampstead, North Carolina

My wife and I stopped in recently and had the best steak sandwiches we've had in a while. We came during lunch and did not have a very long wait and were happy with the selections and prices. The food came out fresh, hot, and very very good. I got the regular philly while my wife got the rocky balboa (a philly on garlic toast with mushrooms basically) and both were awesome. We will return.

Sears Landing Grill & Boat

Reviewed By KimberlyK8991 - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

Sears Landing is a wonderful family friendly restaurant we never miss out on! The service is always prompt, courteous and friendly. The food is all home-cooked and more than meets everyone's expectations. There isn't anything we've ever tried that wasn't worthwhile...my family and I love this place. The outdoor patio seating is the best, and we also love the rockers on the back porch overlooking the docks.

Island Crush

Reviewed By Lance S - Waco, Texas

Many times when you are looking for that insatiable item that you could really hit the spot. When you have a sweet tooth, but it's hot outside and you want something cool as well, this is the place to obtain that delicious item. Nothing beats the heat like a cup of cold Italian ice during those hot beach days. Just a quick walk from the main entrance to Surf City beach, this shop allows you to come in and decide on one of their many flavors. My daughter's favorite flavors are a mixture of cherry and blue razz, top it off with a lemon scoop and you have your quintessential cup of July 4th Americana. Great owners who enjoy giving back to the community, this is definitely a must visit while taking a trip to Surf City. Enjoy!

Daddy Mac's Beach Grille

Oceanfront dining at it's finest. Enjoy a wide selection of hand cut steaks, fresh island seafood, and the house specialties. A locals favorite since 2006.

Reviewed By TJ H - Perrysburg, Ohio

Food was good both times. We even took some friends with us the second time. They enjoyed it also. The grouper bites are very good if they have them as the special when you're there. One of my favorites was the fried green tomatoes, grits, and shrimp appetizer. It was actually enough you could just order it for a meal.
