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.

Went there for breakfast right after church. Ordered biscuits and gravy and grits on the side.Both of what I ordered was lukewarm to cold. I received one biscuit and maybe a spoon full of gravy.Not really what I thought I would get for the money.The grits was like wall paper past!!! would not go there for breakfast

Another enjoyable Wednesday with 'all the shrimp you can eat' lunch with good friends Cate and Mike. Food is good and server Joy is a 'Joy'. I also enjoyed the seafood bisque and french fries are hot and cole slaw very tasty.

Planned on eating lunch but since it was Sunday it was more of a breakfast menu that was suprisingly enjoyable! Had crab omelette, southwestern breakfast burrito, regular breakfast burrito and a vegie frittata. All were tasty and all came with potatoes which were perfect! Service was great and pricing was fine!

seafood sampler basket perfectly cooked and not greasy. we are locals and have not ate here in years, we agreed to try it again for lunch the last couple of weekends, all of our choices were very good. I think a name change would have helped bring in more business since the old Neptunes was nothing to brag about.

Stopped here for breakfast one morning. I had chicken and waffles and a side of bacon with sweet tea. The chicken was very good. Moist and a hint of kick. The waffles were also very good. They have their own parking lot which they guard.
