A Coastal Community Restaurant

Showcasing the bounty of wilmington, north carolina 


About us....

Located in Wilmington, NC, PinPoint Restaurant serves food deeply rooted in Southern tradition and foodways. Chef Dean Neff’s menu changes daily and features the local bounty from Wilmington’s farmers, fishermen, oystermen, and crabbers as much as possible.

The restaurant opened in the spring of 2015 in the heart of downtown Wilmington, just a block from the Cape Fear River. This riverfront area was named by USA Today as “Best American Riverfront”.  The 1890s building was brought back to its simplistic roots, restoring and maintaining as much of the building’s original integrity as possible.

Named after an unincorporated community outside of Savannah, GA near where Neff grew up, PinPoint pays homage to the rural community founded by freed slaves following the Civil War. The predominantly African-American population has a rich culinary history and many residents are from Gullah decent. This area had great influence on Neff as a chef and he has always been drawn to this community that relied on traditions, ingredients, and history for its food and culture.
