The Best Restaurant in the Happiest Small Town in NC
I would like to introduce you to the small town of Southport, NC. Southport is a coastal town located in the southeastern tip of NC along the Cape Fear River and Atlantic Ocean. It was recently voted one of the happiest towns in America and it's easy to see why. This small town is only 3.7sq miles and contains 3700 residents. Southport homes average in the high $200's and are located in Brunswick County. The estimated property tax millage rate is .4425 per $100. If you live within the city limits, there is an additional estimated city property tax of .2456 per $100.
However, this charming town brings in 100's of 1,000's during the tourist season. Tourist come from all over the US for many reasons, one being it is home to the #1 Seafood restaurant in NC and the #2 Best Seafood Dive restaurant in the Country!!
Provision Company, called Provisions by the locals, was established in 1993 and it serves some of the best food in the state. The views of the Southport Yacht Basin, the Intracoastal Waterway and the mouth of the Cape Fear river are incredible, and the sunsets, magnificent. Provision Company was recently ranked the #1 seafood restaurant in North Carolina and #2 Best Seafood Dive in the Country by Coastal Living Magazine. Provisions offers a casual and relaxed environment. Order your food and grab a drink from the cooler while you wait for your order to be served. Enjoy your meal with a view and a breeze in the outdoor, open dining. The wait is short and Provision Company is a family friendly spot. The staff are personable and friendly, delivering top notch service. The food does not disappoint, order from the array of options such as the shrimp, clams, conch fritters, salad with shrimp, salad with grilled yellowfin tuna and more.
I definitely recommend a visit to this charming southern coastal town, and while you are there don't miss out on this Award Winning slice of heaven restaurant.
