We've been twice over the years, will most likely go back.

Clean, fresh food, but honestly a bit pricey for diner fair... but I guess it's at the beach, so you pay for location. The food is good, portions also. The shrimp is fresh and perfectly fried. Really GREAT service here!!! All the staff is nice and welcoming. There are not a whole lot of restaurants... read more

Writing this as we eat !!! The Hush puppies were an added treat and they are very good. The Coca Cola is wonderful with no aftertaste which has been an issue at other places this week. Well we are both happy my wife has the best Hamburger this week and I finally got a Rueben that is wonderful.

Great breakfast at cute local diner. The breakfast biscuit is splendid and even better grilled. Every small town should have a place like this.

We came here all three mornings we were at Kure for breakfast. We did not try their lunch or dinner, but the breakfast was great. We had the same waitress every morning and she was awesome! As others have stated... the biscuits are huge. We loved their gravy biscuits and pancakes. Can't wait to come back for breakfast on our... More

Perfect spot for a tasty and filling breakfast. I had scrambled eggs, crispy bacon, hash browned potatoes, and a giant homemade biscuit for $6. The staff are friendly and efficient, and everything tasted great. Lots of the customers and staff knew each other, obviously a place the locals frequent. I would definitely return!

A good variety of food, and smiling faces when you walk in the door. Fantastic breakfasts, and awesome lunches and dinners. Prices are very reasonable and the servings are filling. Right at the Boardwalk, and within walking distance of the beach.

Kure Beach Diner, just a great classic place at the beach, for either a quick burger or a seafood plate! I love the specials on Sunday, and breakfast is always good. Local's favorite!!

Nothing will make me come back here. Nothing unusual, service nice. Typical fare for breakfast. Convenient to the strip of hotels.
