Big buscits and grits like Grandma made. Lunch specials are home made and usually yummy. Off season hours start so check before you go if you are a winter visitor.

Our first visit to Kure Beach Diner and loved it. We are breakfast people and have tried 5 different restaurants in 9 days and this is the best so far. We will definitely return. My husband ordered the Biscuits and Gravy and couldn't finish the generous portion.

Stopped in with friends one afternoon for lunch and decided to try one of their specials (cheesesteak). It was hot and delicious. I was really impressed, though, with our server, Susie. Not only was she friendly, but she was professional and accommodating. I asked if the diner served ginger ale; she said it didn't, but having been a former bartender,... More

The Kure Beach Diner is a small establishment located right next to the Kure Beach Fishing Pier. It opens at 7:00am for breakfast and fills up quickly. I arrived at around 8:00am figuring I would beat the church crowd and others, but found myself waiting for a table anyways. The restaurant itself was small which seemed to be the norm... More

We ate breakfast here every morning, food came out quick and hot. The wait staff is not the friendliest.

We have eaten here every time we have visited Kure beach. We have eaten breakfast and lunch and have never been disappointed . Located directly in front of pier it is a convenient place to sit down and grab a quick meal or take out and eat on pier so you don't miss a bite. They also have the best... More

Just your basic diner but wow, what great food they served! Great location, friendly staff, all seven in our party thoroughly enjoyed their lunch. Best burger I'd had in ages. Looking forward to returning!

We love this diner's proximity to the Kure Beach pier and the food is better tasting than the bigger restaurants. However, the price is as high as the larger and better atmosphere places. The fried squash and okra was delicious and the meatloaf was good on the daily special.

We were staying in Downtown Wilmington, and stopped off on a cloudy September day to have a walk on the beach. Found the diner by the beach, and popped in for lunch. Staff were really friendly, and started by giving us on the house Hush Puppies while we looked at the menu - sooo good. I ordered the clam chowder,... More

This place was seriously awesome. Best breakfast in town! Not a lot of room inside, but a delicious choice for winter eats.
