Great breakfast by the beach

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... read more

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.

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.

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
