I'm a long time fan of the Old Pier House. It is under different management, a limited menu, some new things and some old things, but it ain't the same, which is sad. First the good changes. The wait staff seems eager to please. My flounder sandwich was yummy (but the bread disintegrated), and my wife liked the new pistachio creme side order, which to my taste was more like a sweet, jello green desserty thing. And the hushpuppies were still excellent--just not so many of them. But a lot of the food was just bland and blah. Maybe they'll get up to speed and the old crowd will be back soon. I kinda miss the old dumpiness of the old place...

We vacation frequently at Kure Beach and this is our "go to" restaurant! You can depend on these folks for a really good meal and excellent service every time! We go for lunch several times in a week long stay. My husband dreams of the oyster burger between visits! I always get something different. The hot dogs are great, the Reuben is delicious and my most recent discovery was the crab cake plate. I ordered the small plate and received one huge crab cake - very little filler, just crab! Go there!!!

Very basic diner, but super friendly staff and the food was pretty good. We came here because there was a 1.5 hour wait at Freddie's next door and we didn't want to wait that long. The hush puppies were very tasty!
