SOUTHPORT — Moore Street Oyster Bar is bringing a new feel to its century-old building in downtown Southport.

After opening in November, the new spot already has garnered the approval of loyal locals.

It replaces The Pharmacy Restaurant, which closed in 2016 on Moore Street. The oyster bar was started by the owners of Oliver’s on the Cape Fear, Suzanne and the late Oliver Landis.

Oliver’s is set to reopen following hurricane repairs in mid-April. But in the meantime, its owners have poured their energy into their new venture on Moore Street.

Moore Street Oyster Bar’s menu features nearly a dozen ways to eat oysters, either hot or cold.
