The place is small in appearance, but the service was outstanding and the food was great! Located beside a gas station it could easily be overlooked. We went in the early afternoon so it was not busy and we had the place to ourselves for the most part. We ordered the Fried Chicken which was great. Nice and crunchy on... More

My family of 3 went for dinner in the early evening. We were the only patrons and the waitress was so nice and friendly. I ordered fried chicken and it was yummy but the baked beans were absolutely delicious! My husband got ribs and said they were outstanding. My picky daughter had pulled pork and said it was very good.... More

We walked in 5 minutes before closing, not realizing they closed at 2pm off-peak season. We ordered and started eating in before we realized it. We offered to pack up to go, and were refused. After eating we were able to chat with the staff even longer about our visit and hometown. Friendly folk to say the least. The BBQ... More

This restaurant is connected to a Sunocco gas station and is not imposing from the outside. But when you enter, the restaurant is immaculate and the manager very friendly. We shared a plate of eastern NC BBQ, onion rings, cole slaw, and baked beans. The BBQ had just the proper spicy taste. And the price is very reasonable. Limited seating... More

This looks like a dive--part of a service station. But it has great eastern NC BBQ --that means vinegar and not tomato--as well as Brunswick stew. Sausage in sausage biscuit is homemade and hand-pattied. Four tables--nothing fancy but good basic food.

We always stop by Atlantic Beach to pick up a tasty egg, bacon and cheese sandwich! It's not fancy and prices match it...

White Swan is no different than many eastern North Carolina barbecue joints. Expect vinegar-based pork barbecue with slaw hush puppies and the like service is fine moderately priced. There are other selections like hot dogs and chicken. It is not a diverse menu but they do the things they do well.
