Fab place to have breakfast/brunch. Great menu selection. Not a fancy place nor expensive. Hope to be back soon!

I have been to the King Neptune twice in the past month and both times found it to be exceeding average. The first time for taco night the tacos were cheap but not delicious. The service was young and hit or miss. The second time for lunch the fried shrimp and fries were pretty good as was the service. The... More

The atmosphere was great.....Bartender was awesome.....but less than an hour later, received call from fraud department saying we had fraudulent activity on our card. This was the only place we used this card since we arrived in town. I'm scratching my head on this one!! Someone there must be shady!!!

We take many compliance steps to ensure that this does not happen. If you could email me at neptuneswb@gmail.com I would like to see what we could do to make this situation better and... More

This humble looking restaurant was a pleasant surprise. We enjoyed perfectly cooked crab legs with unexpectedly delicious side dishes. The sautéed spinach was among the best I've had anywhere, and the mac n' cheese was homemade and full of flavor. There is convenient parking for the restaurant right across the street.

I've been here twice now and had a great experience both times. They happily accommodate kids (crayons are provided) and they're double mimosas make for happy adults! Brunch is fantastic - has eggs, waffles, etc - along with lighter options like a veggie panini. Staff is friendly and quick. Definitely will go here again when I'm in town.

We went here for years and it had gone downhill. We decided to revisit it and we're pleased. The atmosphere was not as unique but the food was great, especially the bowls.

I'd say this is hangover food and it's certainly a dive. Parking is across the street which seems to have a vibrant towing industry here so beware of Earl. Good breakfast food. Has a few beers on draft. Cheeseburger burrito is good. Chicken and waffles was humongous.

We ventured to King Neptune's tonight on a recommendation.When we first walked in we almost turned back. The décor is shabby but the wait staff overcame it. The menu was well worn but the food was great. We had 4 different dinners and 4 different drinks. My wife actually had a good glass of wine for $1.00.....I had the stuffed... More
