Friends highly recommended this place for breakfast. It is open for breakfast and lunch. Located in a strip shopping center. Decor is like a diner. The menu is not extensive, but I cannot imagine not being able to find something that is appealing. We went for lunch (Sunday afternoon). My husband had a hamburger with chips (chips are fried 'to...

This was a friendly, clean and convenient restaurant located in Morehead Plaza. we were spending a week in Atlantic Beach and our breakfast spot was closed for two days. We were pleasantly surprised to find this treasure at the recommendation of a relative. There were so many choices on the breakfast menu, we had a hard time deciding. A couple... More

This was my first breakfast out in Morehead City, and a friend told us we had to check it out. I loved the coastal omelette, which was amazing! The BLTs were also popular in our group too. Great breakfast!

Our hosts exclaimed about the "soon to be famous" cinnamon roll, and they weren't kidding! A delicious filling the plate roll is memorable! The biscuits and gravy live up to the other reviews on the Banks. One serving was sufficient for us both. We visit friends annually, and now it will be a must revisit. Service great as well -...

This was my first visit to the Banks Grill, after hearing rave reviews. I must say, I was not disappointed! The food was AMAZING & the service was excellent! I usually have to add seasonings (salt & pepper) to my food, but this food required no additional seasonings. I will definitely be visiting this restaurant every time I visit Morehead... More

This is my third visit to The Banks Grill and, since I'm a creature of habit, I ordered the same thing each time....two eggs scrambled, bacon, grits and a giant biscuit! Honestly folks I could just go for the grits. They are not your run of the mill, every breakfast place has them, grits. Nope! They are a bowl of... More

Located in a strip mall, (near a Tractor Supply store and adjacent to Lowes grocery store). Only open for breakfast and lunch, this place is easy to miss, but dont! Attentive and friendly staff serve some excellent dishes. I had Carolina pulled pork tacos, she had multi grain pancakes. Both were excellent. Dont miss the cinnamon bun with pecan and... More

As a part-time resident of Indian Beach, we look for local options. The menu selection included a variety of both breakfast and lunch items. There was a wait the entire time we were there and the food was prepared to order, which always takes a little extra time. The wait staff were all friendly and anxious to serve. Tried lunch... More

This is your classic American place with omelettes and steak and eggs. They have a lot of southern typical fried foods ( fried pickles, pork rinds ) and some grilled as well chicken and fish. The food is prepared right in front of you behind the counter. The prices are reasonable and if you want just a simple breakfast or... More
