Surf City Line
With a strong desire to bring something new and exciting to the island, Surf City Line was created by Jeff Peterson and his son, Chris Peterson in May 2021. With a background in real estate investment and property beautification, they wanted a place that would be family and dog friendly, which would appeal to everyone. What better way than tacos with an island vibe? And so, Surf City Line was born.
Located on the line between Surf City and North Topsail, “The Line” boasts the biggest deck on the island! The restaurant and bar features live music, accommodates parties of all sizes and prides themselves on making each guest’s visit an experience to remember. Surf City Line believes in developing and maintaining strong ties to the community by partnering with various organizations such as “The Reel Housewives of Topsail Island” and “Paddle for The Troops”.
C’mon in and check out the made from scratch menu, hand crafted cocktails, live entertainment, dog friendly, great vibes and memorable times!
