Love this place!! Back for my 3rd time this year! My family loves going here, we are never disappointed, the food is consistent and big, always filling, and the same servers take care if us. It really says something about a place when there is not a lot of turnover with the employees. This is a perfect little diner, with... More

We all ordered various seafood baskets and one family member ordered a burger. The seafood shrimp was terrible and undercooked! Hush puppies, fries, flounder,crab cake over cooked! Slaw looked and tasted discussing! Burger was good. Way overpriced for a family of 4/it was $75!! The quality wasn't there!

Service was pretty bad (read SLLLLOOOOWWWW) and the diner wasn't that crowded, but the 18% gratuity was added to the check "for" us, so there was little we could do (but this probably explained the lack of motivation to speed up). The burgers were delicious, the tater tots were strange (looking and tasting- but they warned us ahead of time-... More

I love this restaurant!! Every time I visit Carolina beach I make at least one trip to this restaurant. Wonderful place and te food is outstanding! You can tell it is made fresh in the kitchen! (Which it is, I asked). I highly recommend this fifty diner. If you are looking for something high end, this is not the place... More

A perfect restaurant for quick diner food located just a block off the boardwalk. Although the restaurant may appear a little rough around the edges, the food is fine as is the service.

It has lots of different types of comfort food, hot dogs, hamburgers, salads, bbq , our first visit there, the front of it drew us in, looked like a fifties diner. They have awesome desserts, and all kinds of ice cream! It's better than just stopping in your usual fast food place, lots more charm and food so much better.... More

The hamburgers are big and delicious according to my hamburger-eating companions. They don't skimp on toppings and they use the Hawaiian style buns. My first meal there was a veggie burger- above average. The second was a chicken sandwich with a house sauce- lawd, that was DELIGHTFUL. Purr. Anyway... The fries are all natural cut; they also have sweet potato... More
