My wife and I came here after an early morning walk on the beach. A local's place that was just as accommodating to visitors like us. We sat at the bar an ordered a tasty breakfast served by a friendly bartender/server. This was our first time to WB and we plan on coming back next summer--and will make King Neptune... More

My complaint is not about the taste of the food, but rather that I broke a tooth on a bone or other hard object in the food. When I reported this to the establishment I initially received a sincere-sounding email from Danny McPherson, the owner, promising to speak with me. However, despite numerous attempts to contact him by email and... More

In looking at the menu online and the prices I expected a much nicer restaurant. We walked into what felt like somewhere you would have beer and wings with your friends. So while the food was good - a nicer atmosphere would have been appreciated.

I stopped by for a quick lunch after spending the morning on the beach. The bartender was very pleasant and quick to serve me. I had the grilled seafood platter which was very good, a tad strong on the seasoning, but very good nonetheless. Unfortunately the clam chowder is no longer available, but the corn and clam bisque is a... More

King Neptune started serving breakfast a couple of years ago and it has become a regular part of our beach trips since then. The grits are incredible, the hash browns scrumptious, and the portions generous, A friend who often visits with us loves the crab omelet. I like the frittata, panini and the breakfast burritos. The service is always prompt... More

We had a great seafood meal and enjoyed the casual atmosphere. It was great to be able to have such an affordable seafood meal and close to our rental unit. Only complaint is the lighting was very dim and it was hard to see ur plate.

On a recent trip to Wrightsville Beach, my husband and I dined at King Neptune. It is totally unadorned, not very well lit and a tee shirt and flip flops are almost too dressy...but the food is delightful!! Husband ate blackened flounder with gouda smashed potatoes. Having tired of seafood, I chose chicken which was so tender you could cut... More

Ashli not only works a busy bar but she also works all guest needs, gives good suggestions and always has a smile on her face. Bacon wrapped scallops are phenomenal

This is a great cheap, and decent eatery right near the beach. After a day of beach activity where your picnic has worn off, shoot over to King Neptune for an affordable and tasty lunch. We had the clams which were served in a killer beer sauce, and then a salad with a massive whack of salmon on it. It's... More

Visited King Neptune for a lunch after a beach morning. Fish and chips were awesome and the fish tacos were great! The kids had burgers and those were great as well. Good service and good prices !!
