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!

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!

Food was good. The place itself could have been a little better in terms of terms of cleanliness and keeping up with repairs.
