We have eaten here twice in the past month, both times were very good. Breakfast of eggs, home fries, bacon and toast were exactly as I ordered. Coffee was fresh and the cup never got below half full. Wonderful service. Specials on the board looked good too. Will have to try lunch or dinner next time. Very reasonable prices.

Good food at a family Resturant, the waitress was pleasant. No frills, waitress took our drink order right away and came back quickly with them, took our food order. Not a long wait for the food and it was cooked to order.

Really good breakfast. We had eggs, hash browns and biscuits and gravy. Fast, friendly service - and my coffee stayed full!

If you crave country style steak, collard greens and black-eyed peas, you want be disappointed, plus dessert comes with every meal. Many retirees as well as locals of all ages are regulars here because it offers tasty food at reasonable prices and the staff is ALWAYS friendly.

The seafood was fried to perfection. The sides were good, the food was plentiful and the price reasonable. I always compare seafood to the way my mom cooks it, not too much breaking, not cooked too long. This was as close as I have ever come!

Soft shell crab sandwich was good fro $6.00, but my husband was just not pleased with the country fried steak. Once again older atmosphere,which is typical for the Crystal Coast.

It's always a good hot meal when you eat at Cox's. It's a meat and 2 or 3 sides - with dessert thrown in if you order off the board. You always have a choice of rolls or hush puppies (get the puppies) - the staff is friendly and efficient (always busy) - My favorite night is Thursday (chicken and... More

My husband and I ate at this restaurant Friday night and the food was very good. The restaurant seems to be were the locals eat. Very good home cooking and we are funny about county cooking. Having read some of the reviews we were nit sure we wanted to eat here but are glad we did.
