We went to King Neptune for Sunday lunch last Sunday. The atmosphere was pretty typical for a beach seafood place and this particular restaurant has been on Wrightsville Beach for a long time, or so I'm told.
I had the fried chicken and waffles. It was off the hook awesome. I loved it. This was the first time I have ever had this combination and it put a big smile on my face and on the lunch menu it was $6.99, a super deal.
A gentleman in our party got the clam chowder and commented that it was the best that he ever had. My wife had a crab patty sandwich. She said that the crab patty was exceptional but that the sandwich as a whole was a bit "bready".
There were eight people in our party and everyone thought their dishes were very good.
I observed that this place looks like it's a restaurant on one side and a bar on the other. While we were there the bar side was closed. I walked through it because it looked interesting, like an old school beach theme.
When I get back to Wrightsville Beach I will go back to King Neptune for the chicken and waffle. There's no question about that. It was one of the best dishes I have ever had anywhere.
