Jacked Up

If you like spicy food try the jacked up burger. Jalapenos and spicy cheese make this a burger for me. I will be back.

I had a hamburger w/ grilled onions, mushrooms, and cheese and it was really good. I wanted seafood but was told that out of season they didn't have anything that was fresh. I do have to say that I was really turned off when I sat at the table and gnats flew off the ketchup and mustard bottle. I really... More

Husband and I were visiting the area and one night we stopped in this restaurant for dinner. Husband ordered wings and I had a Cheesesteak. My cheesesteak was good but very small and wrapped like a Burrito - then cut in half. We first sat inside but the group of people on the opposite side of the bar were cursing... More

The best cheese fries and ranch dip anywhere! the Mason burger was perfect and the homemade chips had a great seasoning on them. Small place, but friendly service will be back again!

Enjoyed a delicious shrimp taco and homemade chips here with a cold beer! Good service and fresh food too! Others in our party had burgers and the best fries! They were lightly browned and cooked to perfection!

My wife and son wanted to try this place while on vacation. After reading some reviews on different sites wasn't sure what to expect but I definitely liked this place. I had the shrimp and grits. It was very good, a little spicy and I had enough I couldn't finish it all. Our waiter was good but it took a... More

We hang out at the dive at least once each time we go to Carolina Beach. The fried shrimp Po Boy is pretty good and so are the fries! Watching a Steelers game there in December was a lot of fun with our Steelers gear on. The decor is cool and this is truly a dive! Awesome jukebox.

Have been to The Dive for lunch with the kids twice over the last few years. They think it is a blast (teens and preteens). The food has always been good and fresh. Especially the seafood and burgers. Staff has been very attentive and welcoming! Take a chance on The Dive and you will be pleasantly surprised!
