We are trying to decide between Compass Pointe and Saint James as our retirement destination. My wife is concerned about the dining opportunities nearby. We recently had a great meal at Circa 1922 in Wilmington. But my eyes are not getting any younger and driving at night is not going to get easier. So I would rather not rely on traveling to Wilmington for a good meal at a restaurant. Any recommendations for restaurants near Compass Pointe or Saint James would be much appreciated. Also interested in any opinions of the restaurants within Saint James itself. Thanks for the local insider knowledge! This forum has been a big help.

For a small town, Southport has many great dining options. Moore Street Oyster Bar, Mr. P's, Oliver's, Fishy Fishy, Ports of Call, Provision Company, Castucci's, Joseph's and others. Plus more on Oak Island. Lots of options.

Default Club restaurants

There are also restaurants at the golf clubhouses inside St James as well as one at the marina.

You would have to join the Clubs at St James if you want to dine at any of the 4 restaurants at the clubhouses. You can dine at Tommy's at the marina as a non-member but it is still closed due to a fire last Nov. Long story. Last we heard maybe open 1st quarter 2021.

We are foodies and have found Southport wonderful as far as dining options. Mr. P's is probably the best, but we also like Oliver's on the waterfront, Moore Street Oyster Bar, Fishy Fishy, Joseph's for Italian. Wonderful lunch sandwiches from Southport Cheese Shoppe and Moore Street Market just to name a few. Also a few good restaurants on Oak Island. We also like Circa 1922 in Wilmington and we've had one of the best meals we've ever had at another restaurant in downtown Wilmington called Manna. It's just a tiny little place on a side street, but it was so creative in both it's food and crafted cocktails.

Within St James I've only been there for lunch at the Reserve Club, but it was a few years ago- food was excellent. We've also been to Tommy Thompson's several times for drinks and to watch the sun set. Sorry to hear they are still closed.

Good Luck on your decision. We never looked at Compass Pointe as we wanted to be closer to the ocean.
