This bar is literally on the beach on a pier that juts out to the water. All you need are your flip flops and money and walk up and grab a beer or blended frozen beverage. The view is awesome because you can see the water and down the Carolina Beach and Kure Beach.

This is our second year staying at Golden Sands and we couldn't be happier with our experiences. In spite of the holiday price tag, we eagerly returned, knowing our time and money would be well spent. The greatest advantage of staying at Golden Sands is immediate, effortless access to the best restaurant and tiki bar (adjoining; different owners) at Carolina... More

Slow service, Limited choices was actually nice, however because of that you would think prices more affordable. Simple sandwiches were all at least $10.00

Honestly have never eaten the food here, but we go every time we are in town which is a couple of times a month during the summer. Cool atmosphere on the pier! Good place to view fireworks on Thursday nights during the summer or grab a cool drink while you're lounging on the beach. Service is usually pretty good and... More

The tiki bar has a great view, including a well lite peer while enjoying a nice hamburger and fries.

We were somewhat disappointed with our diner at the Ocean Grill. We sat in the upstairs room, which, although there was some ocean view, the ambience in the room was very lacking. It seemed very bare in there. In retrospect, we would have sat downstairs. The blackened mahi tasted a bit fishy. Usually I love mahi mahi, but this time... More

This used to be one of our favorite restaurants in the area, but after our visit yesterday, we probably won't be back. Our waitress was friendly but not very attentive (even though there was hardly anyone in the restaurant). I've always loved their mahi tacos but decided to try the mahi sandwich. I liked the bun it was served on,... More

My daughter and I came here for dinner on Saturday night. Despite the fact that there were many empty tables, we still had about a 15 minute wait for a table because the kitchen was backed up. This wasn't a big deal, because they have a nice inside bar that faces the ocean and looks out onto the pier. We... More

Walked in on a Thursday night. Place was about at 60% capacity. The blonde hostess on the phone talking to a customer could not have hated her job any more than she already did. Zero emotion. She may have been a zombie. The atmosphere seemed nice...what was to be expected of a casual beach environment with a good view. We... More
