Originally an old fish shack, American Fish Co. can be found in the heart of historic Southport’s Yacht Basin.
The shack at the foot of Yacht Basin Drive has gone through many changes in it’s storied lifetime. The History of “American Fish Company”, just as enticing as the views, dates back as far as the 1940’s. The property was originally part of a railroad operation that loaded seafood from incoming ships. In 1970 the property was used to run charter boats carrying thousands of pounds of grouper, snapper, swordfish and flounder to the mainland markets. In 1978 the property changed hands and from 1978 to 2003 it was run as a fully operational fish facility where fisherman continued to unload their catch. In 2003 a local businessman bought the business and in 2009 opened the doors once again as the bar you see today.
American Fish Company, with it’s storied past, now
serves cold beverages on the water with a breathtaking view you have to experience to believe.
