A Review

I love a good open air eatery. The problem here in Charlotte, NC is it is too hot, or too cold, and the best view is a parking lot or busy railroad track (I do like trains).

Once in a while an open air eatery opens at the lake but usually it is a place for drunks to hang out on Sunday afternoon and the food is terrible.

There is one such place in Southport, NC called the Provision Company. Casual, open air, only open seasonal and it has a great view of the water way and marsh. The food is good too but the service is hurried. They want to turn over the tables because there is a bunch of folks like me in line.

To me the quintessential place to eat good food, with a great view and an unhurried meal is Eat@Cane Bay. Oh…and they have a dive shop connected to the property.

I guess I’m getting a little home sick. A made to order gourmet burger with a cold beer, a view, and conversation about the morning dive is a hard combination to beat.

Eat@Cane Bay looks great but a little tough to get to from work.

Ahhhhh, to dine al fresco!

To be caressed by gentle zephyrs while noshing and imbibing and, yes, gazing, especially at water, is truly...ahhhhhhh.

In layman's terms: I like it.

There is a seasonal BBQ place in Maggie Valley called Butts on the Creek. Typical Western NC BBQ, but the open air dining over Jonathan Creek is awesome. Cool and breezy even in mid-summer.The fried corn on the cob is lightly battered and a real treat.
