I think they have outpriced themselves since they are at the beach. We paid $5.50 for one hot dog and fries, drink not included. We got 2 orders. .Our hotdogs were tough and we ate them anyway.

We didn't get to try breakfast but did make a lunch visit. My husband had a cheeseburger and I got crab cake sandwich. Both were satisfactory but nothing really special. Fries were good. For what we got, we felt it was over-priced but I guess that happens frequently at a beach location. We'll try again later for a breakfast visit.

Service was amazing. I had the crab cake sandwich and it was perfect. Their sweet tea is made fresh every day and I would highly recommend it. Go here if you have a chance!

We enjoy eating breakfast at the Kure Beach Diner. Good value. Lunch specials are also worth trying. Take time to look at the historic photos lining the walls.

I am a Discerning breakfast connoisseur. I feel this place is just very average. Eggs potatoes toast were pretty tasteless. Coffee was fresh and strong. I will say that the service was with a smile which goes a long way.

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed the breakfast! Best sausage and gravy biscuits ever! Friendly and excellent service. Really cool set back in time decor and clean as a whistle.
