Locally-owned SoundSide Restaurant is a top destination for seafood and steak fans, with a friendly atmosphere and convenient locale along Highway 70 / Arendell Street. The restaurant utilizes a wealth of top ingredients for its staple creations, and is especially known for its Certified Angus Beef selections, which are sure to impress any meat lover.

The restaurant is overseen by executive chef Kris Dykeman, who moved to Emerald Isle in 2004, and perfected his style working at coastal restaurants throughout the region. Kris also has an extensive horticultural background, and uses it to his advantage by visiting and purchasing produce from local farms. The menu reflects this attention to fresh ingredients, with seasonal seafood dishes and year-round favorites, like shrimp and grits and SoundSide crab cakes, and decadent meaty entrees like maple bourbon pork chops and honey chickens. Patrons will also want to start with a fresh salad or appetizer, which includes coastal favorites like Oysters Rockefeller and Ahi tuna, and should save plenty of room for the seasonal desserts – which are all made in-house.

With little twists on standard favorites, and a nice selection of fresh steaks and seafood, SoundSide Restaurant is an excellent destination for a fine lunch or dinner that’s infused with Crystal Coast flavor.
