King Neptune is unassuming on the outside, with the only indication if the name painted on the window. The place is divided in half, bar on one side and restaurant with another bar on the other side. Very informal as you would expect at the beach, but super clean. We went to breakfast at 8:30 on a Friday morning and... More

We ate breakfast here as the restaurant choices are limited. Our waitress was kinda slow and just not really with it...there was only one other table in there so she wasn't busy. The coffee was old and barely warm which surprised me at not even 10 in the morning. The food however was decent. I had the breakfast burrito and... More

Seriously this place is a must for Wrightsville Beach, very casual atmosphere, friendly staff. The food is outstanding I had the volcano burger it was hot but amazing, it came out piping hot and quick. Oh and the calamari was to die for!

Excellent food! We had the crab dip for an appetizer and my husband is from Maryland and thought it was the best crab he has had since moving to NC. Also had the blacken mahi mahi and stuffed flounder. All food was GREAT !!!

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!
