The place was packed on Taco Tuesday or was it Taco Thursday...the tables turn fast at this crowded and casual restaurant. The bar is extensive with lots of options and specials. The fish taco was very good, even considering that it was not a taco special. Reasonable prices and friendly staff.

We were staying down in Carolina beach for a week. We ventured up to Wrightsville Beach to check everything out. We have a friend that used to work at King Neptunes in college and she told us to check it out. We were greeted and sat right away. The staff was very friendly, from the hostess to the servers. We...

King Neptune's is a family friendly eatery with good seafood and full service bar. There is no view of the Ocean or marsh side, so the prices are a bit more moderate than others on the beach. It has a cute train set up on the walls surrounding the rooms and the kids like to watch it move around. There... More

Had the surf and turf ( steak and bacon wrapped scallops). Started with crab dip as an appetizer. Had two very generous glasses of merlot. All good. Waitress was great.

This restaurant has two sides to it. One side is functional, light, and boring and serves breakfast, lunch, dinner and a night time disco. The other side is a dark, all wood pirate themed bar that opens at 5. We did not care for the boring side and drank pain killers and enjoyed the atmosphere of the pirate side. We... More

When I go to Wrightsville, this is the place I go to breakfast if I can't make it to the grocery. They have cheap food that is very good. If you don't want to spend a lot, and need to fill the family up for a good part of the day, this is the place to go. Highly recommend.

We stopped inhere for lunch and enjoyed every bite. We had hamburgers and the crab sliders, all of which were very good - the fries were crispy and good too. And when/where was the last time you had a Millet Lite for a buck? The service was also friendly and efficient. The free parking across the street is a bonus.

I'm not usually a fan of grits. I decided to get them because I didn't want anything fried. These were the best grits I've ever had! I don't know how they got them so creamy. My son got the chicken & waffels. He ate every bite they were so good. I wish we had tried their dinner. Maybe next visit.

This 70-year-old restaurant isn't much to look at. It's plain and doesn't even have a sign, but the food is some of the best we have ever had. We got the grilled grouper and fish tacos with fresh string beans and smoked Gouda mashed potatoes. It was so delicious we asked our waitress to thank the chef for us. Please... More
