We strolled up the beach for a girls day and what a great find! The drinks were great, the food was delish and I would go back if I lived there!

Didn't eat there but stopped in for a mojito, this was served in a small plastic cup! A rather disappointing $10 cocktail!

We went to dinner with friends at Ocean Grill after a day at Kure Beach. The location on the water is picturesque and as long as there's a breeze, dining outside is a great option especially after a beach day. The food unfortunately was not as good as the view.

Amazing tiki bar over the water. Be careful of the alcohol. You get side tracked with the view and location. The food is average to me. Nothing negative to add. The pier it sits on has shade underneath it so you can lay out some and then hide in the shade.

This place was a little tucked away into the adjoining hotel but was well worth the search. Lunch was delicious and service was awesome. Best hushpuppies we have had!

We were staying at the hotel adjacent to this place and really did not want to leave again after driving 5.5 hrs. The food is just average and the portions are pretty small for the price of a sandwich. We had a buttermilk chicken sandwich and the chicken was about half the size of the bun. We were told they...
