Love this place for breakfast the service and the food are very good to excellent. Love the fresh coffee refilled every 3-5 minutes, the staff gets along well and you may hear a joke or two at the counter. Love the Senior Special. Lots of lines on weekends. Probably the best breakfast option in Southport. I have been in there and met folks from out of town that drove to Locals just for the breakfast. Biscuits are good and love the corned beef hash and their pancakes. Eat here weekly.

This is a local diner with standard breakfast options. The staff was friendly and that was the highlight of my visit. If you are content with a greasy breakfast and fruit out of a can then here's your spot. Maybe lunch is better?

Clearly a favorite with locals. All your basic breakfast items, very good, well-prepared, served up hot by friendly waitresses who refill your coffee cup frequently.

My lovely bride Betty and I dined at this fine establishment this evening and was extremely delighted by not only the food, but the service and friendliness of the staff.

The restaurant parking lot was packed and I thought to myself oh no a long wait, but we were greeted and seated with no wait. Amber showed up within a minute or so and took our drink order and within 10 minutes our food was sitting in front of us.

Amber took very excellent care of us as she took our order, delivered our food which was perfect, and gave us our check. She was very efficient and her attitude was wonderful, Amber made us feel as if we were part of the family.

Betty has a special diet she must follow and Amber made absolutely sure that Betty was taken care of. Her meal was wonderful as was mine.

Local's Family Diner has been around for 20 years or more according to Amber and they pride themselves in excellent service and that personal touch.

Please give this fine restaurant a try when you visit Southport, NC. You will not be disappointed at all. I see other reviews below that were less than satisfactory, It is extremely difficult to believe this could have happened. Betty and I were ecstatic with the food, service and atmosphere.

Many thanks, Locals Family Diner for a great time!!!!
