Southerners do many things right, but their food is the best of the best. That fact is very clear at Mermaid Point, which offers traditional Southern BBQ and seafood, with plenty of side options and delicious beers on tap.

While you’re here, we highly recommend trying the pan-fried flounder for your entree and the catfish nuggets as an appetizer. Pair it with a local beer—you won’t be disappointed!

Stay Long Enough… and You Might Even See a Mermaid or Two

Legend has it that in years past, sailors leaving the area late at night would catch glimpses of mermaids out on the sandbar of the Cape Fear River.

Folklore tells us that mermaids liked swimming along the river to bathe in its fresh water. While these may just be stories passed down from generation to generation, why not stop by for a drink and a plate of BBQ to find out?
