Food And Libations

What better way to wrap up the days activities than some Bread and Grog!!  Ok, We can do a little better than that. Here are a few  favorites:

Really Close, Stumble off the boat close:

Dead End Saloon-  4907 Fish Factory Rd SE, Southport, NC 28461, (910) 454-4002

Inexpensive Coastal American with a nice bar and a dock to pull up your boat to. Our Instructor, Rob, has been to both this one, and the one in Baltimore Maryland , but the details are still fuzzy. Guaranteed to hit your Culinary BullsEye!

Joseph's Italian Bistro-  5003 O'Quinn Blvd SE C, Southport, NC 28461, (910) 454-4440

Italian american, white tablecloths and great atmosphere. The menu is great and so is the proximity to the store (downstairs and two doors over)

On the Island. There are LOTS of place to eat on Oak Island. Here are a few favorites:


Shagger Jacks- 8004 E Oak Island Dr, Oak Island, NC 28465, (910) 933-4103

Pirates Deck- 5827 E Oak Island Dr, Oak Island, NC 28465,  (910) 933-4615
