Great food and prices are very reasonable...Breakfast is great. Can always depend on good service along good food. Prepare to wait in that it is very popular with locals, etc. nothing fancy but then prices are hard to beat. Eat and go type place.

I always eat one meal, sometimes two, during my visits to Wrightsville Beach. I love the Carolina Blue Crab omelette. The grits are good and so are the biscuits. If you go in the summer there is usually a wait but you can sit on the front porch and visit or read the paper while waiting to be called. Speaking... More

We come here for our anniversary the same weekend every fall. This place is cash only, and the food is good. The owner, Dave, positively SCREAMS your party name, once, and you may take or miss your table. Meh.

We make it a point to eat breakfast every day at Causeway when we are at the beach. Family owned, the food is really good comfort food. Over the dozens of times we have eaten there we have never had a bad meal. Plan ahead as they don't take cards of any kind.

I have come to your restaurant every time I visit. I took time to scrounge together cash because you are cash only. But you closed OVER half an hour early.If people take an hour of their time to visit your establishment take an hour of YOUR time to advertise correctly and make changes online as well. Only takes 1 hour.

We love a good breakfast and sometimes it is hard to find when you're traveling. Lucked up when we went here. Very good food and service. When I asked for a bit more sausage gravy to cover my biscuit, the waitress brought me a side bowl and it was plenty. Would definitely recommend.

I have been enjoying the Causeway for twenty years. The atmosphere and decor have always remained the same and that's a good feeling. The concentration should be on the food....and it goes into delicious breakfasts, like biscuits n gravy, a great home cooked style lunch and dynamite cheeseburgers! I realize there can be a wait, especially in the summer, but... More

Went to have seafood, crab was rotten! Literally smelled awful! This place is filthy, I would not even have ordered but was with a friend. I had sweet tea and crossed my fingers I would not catch something awful! Avoid.

A place with lots of character, good standard American food, service was a little slow. Locals seem to be the makeup of most of the customers, which is always a good sign.

Service is very good. On a holiday weekend we waited close to an hour did a seat. Food was average to good. The staff catered to our 4 yr who was hungry, which was a big help. The eggs Neptune was good too.

Thank Lauren T
