Best value - fresh, delicious, and plentiful!

The menu was a little limited, but our food was AMAZING - fried fish combo, scampi, salmon. Very reasonable for the quality, freshness, and quantity. The wait staff was attentive. Inside decor didn't seem quite finished. I missed the old Caribbean look with the little train, but that is nostalgia... read more

I have been to King Neptune before and have always been surprised that they were never very crowded. Maybe some people are skeptical because of the Pirate Bar type theme of the bar portion, or it could be that it for some reason has no sign whatsoever that I could find on it. Made it a little difficult for our... More

We've been to King Neptune during past visits to Wrightsville Beach, and we've always been pretty happy with our experience. On our most recent trip, I was able to get last-minute reservations on Friday night for our party of 15. Several members of our group didn't have very high expectations considering the restaurant had availability on a Friday night. But... More

We've driven by this place many times, but the traffic patterns are such that we never noticed it. I saw it highly rated on Tripadvisor, so we tried it. The shrimp, scallops and fish were all very good and I thought the lunch prices ($9-10) for a basket of seafood and fries were very reasonable. Parking is at a premium,... More

Have been here for breakfast, typically they are very busy as one of few locations to dine for breakfast on the beach. Young servers are friendly, but veggie breakfast bowl is good and so are the grits!

The inside of this place is really old, worn, kind of beat up looking and dusty. We had a resident fly fighting for our food during our meal but...the food was really good! Our waitress was pleasant and very helpful. The seafood we ordered was fresh and tasty. The french fries were seasoned with something that made them much better... More

The bar staff was very friendly and the beer was reasonably priced. Good location right on access/egress to the island and near other shops and restaurants.

Great food any time of the day. Prices were very affordable. Bloody Mary or Mimosa with breakfast as the bar is always open. Great selection of food. Staff friendly and helpful. Service was great. Very busy but the staff must be use to it. Able to walk off the beach and across the street to wonderful food, drinks and service... More

We were pleasantly surprised last year when we first heard that King Neptune's had breakfast and it was very good! We just returned from Memorial Day weekend this year and ate at King Neptune for breakfast 2 days and dinner one night. Dinner was just as good as breakfast. The new owners have really made changes for the better. We... More

Under new ownership, king Neptune has really excelled. This place used to be red lobster quality but now it can hang with any place in Wilmington. I urge you to go before everyone else figures out just how great it is and the wait time gets ridiculous. We went once with our one year old on a date, once as... More
