Three meals here, during our week at Kure Beach & all were great. They have a special of the day - don't miss the post roast! It was absolutely delicious! Very small diner, & parking can be hard to find, but good service, casual atmosphere, & reasonable prices. Best food in Kure/Carolina Beach, in my opinion.

Stopped by for a late breakfast. It was almost 11am and they stop at 11a for breakfast. However they allowed us to go ahead and order breakfast anyway. Great Omelets and the price for two people was less than $14. Right near the pier and great views.

Stayed in Kure 4 nights & ate here 4 times (twice for breakfast, once for lunch & dinner). Each time we received great service, appropriately priced food, and agreeable prices! Not too familiar with the previous business in this location, but I can say there was certainly no disappointments with the establishment that is there now.

Great service, great prices, great diner food. Right on the beach, watching a thunderstorm roll in at 8 am with a hot cup of coffee in my hand. That is what makes a good vacation great to me. Eat here.

Last time we ate here was in 2011. Now we revisit and the food is not the same, the staff is not the same. All good memories are now bad memories. Took over 30 to get food. Waitress took orders wrong, was asked to fix it and took another 30 minutes. Not as much menu selections as before. Food was... More

Was told by some family and friends it was a really good place to try if you want a little something of everything menu wise. We had taken a walk out on the pier just for a look see and decided to give them a try for lunch. And they were good. Didn't have to wait for a table. The... More

Everything was great at breakfast. They have some of the biggest biscuits and they're homemade. You could tell the gravy was probably packaged but it had a great flavor. My daughter and I really enjoyed the breakfast and it's nice that it's right beside the pier and the south wind motel.

Oh how I miss the Old Pier House! We visit Kure Beach several times a year. I can't count the time we have eaten at this restaurant. Now that it's under new ownership, the quality of food has gone down. We used to eat here 1-2 meals per day. Today was the last time I'll go here. The prices have... More
