While staying on Wrightsville Beach, we walked from our Resort to King Neptune for breakfast and dinner. The breakfast was outstanding. We both had Cinnabon Pancakes, just mouth watering. We had seafood for dinner and both were very good. The service both times was excellent and it had a very relaxed, comfortable atmosphere. Price was very reasonable.

Awesome place! Went twice in the same trip! A must visit! Just don't drink the tap water. Kids and adults alike loved it. Fresh fish. Crab dip is a must to order.

For awhile, the King Neptune had been a run-of-the-mill, nothing to write home about, forgettable seafood restaurant, better known for its bar. That changed with a recent ownership change (2010 or 2011). The fried foods are now very lightly breaded and fried in a good oil that does not transfer other food tastes to the meal. While I had the... More

Definitely try the tacos. We stopped for an early dinner, because we had overheard some of the locals talking at the beach. Great quality of fish and I love fresh fried oysters. However don't drink the water it's from the tap and taste terrible.

We went to Wrightsville Beach for the weekend and went for Saturday brunch...we went back for Sunday brunch because there was nowhere else we wanted to eat!! Highly recommend the chicken and waffles - also get the grits...they might be the best I've ever had!! Great service, friendly staff. We will be going back!

The food was very good and service was fast. While fresh-caught options were available, we did no partake. The staff were not over-friendly and the atmosphere felt...dirty, for the price. I love a hole-in-the -wall restaurant that serves great food, but I don't expect to pay a premium at these locales. $25+ for King Neptune Platter (not fresh) that my... More

We stepped in for lunch on a whim. They were still serving brunch so she got eggs and potatoes and I got shrimp and grits. Hers was pretty good (is it even possible to mess something like that up?), the shrimp and grits were cooked with some kind of tomato sauce, which I thought was a little weird. The shrimp... More

This resto/pub is really pretty average. Food is ok, not too adventurous, just fried or broiled fish with sides. It is populated with local color and seems to be a hangout for the just out of college crowd after the dinner hours. It is pretty typical of the laid back Wrightsville beach area.
