Had date night here during vacation, beautifully decorated with good food. :) the restaurant was within walking distance of the rental we were staying in. It's little pricey but not to bad, had a cheeseburger with fries, which were both delicious. Would certainly recommend this for couples who want a romantic setting.

This buffet has a pretty intimidating price, but trust me! It's so worth it! Friendly staff and delicious food! The fish is so fresh and the hush puppies are some of the best I've ever had. This is a once a year splurge for our family! Try it out!

This place used to be really good back 10 years ago, but they have gotten worst and worst with their service. The staff is not nice at all, and they got my order wrong twice. When I brought it to the servers attention, she was not apologetic at all. I was also disappointed in how long it took my food... More

We went here on Mother's Day this year while vacationing in Kure Beach. The restaurant was not very crowded at all. I got the worst cold snow crab legs I've ever had and was informed that their steamer wasn't working. My husband's file mignon was like shoe leather. To there credit, they did remove the crab legs from our bill... More

I was curious why we were the only table for lunch in such a big restaurant but I quickly found out. I will say we ate out on the deck which was nice and our server was kind and efficient. The food however was a big disappointment. I ordered a steak sandwich which was a cold sub type sandwich that... More

I have ate here a lot in past years, but it's not what it used to be! The service was great! I had a rib eye steak and potato. Nothing special, it was ok.

Worse service ever! Waiter stuck his finger in part of our meal- food items were soured, very salty or over peppered. We assumed to cover lack of taste......Had to ask numerous times for the remainder of our meal, refills and drinks, and then had to chase the waiter down to let him know that we left our money on the...

We went on a Sunday night and were greeted warmly as we stepped up onto the front porch. Our waiter enthusiastically answered our questions regarding menu items and the wine list. I ordered the shrimp alfredo, which was wonderful and full of large shrimp. My guy ordered the shrimp stir-fry, equally full of shrimp. The side salads are huge and... More

We used to go to Big Daddy's in the Charlotte area, so with a party of ten friends, we chose the Kure Beach location during our stay at the beach. My wife and I ordered Surf and Turf, hoping to enjoy the best cut of beef and lobster tail. To our disappointment, both items were mediocre at best. The steak... More
