This is a really unique place to stop in for a drink and fellowship!! Great Location, as it's perfect while you wait for seating while waiting for dinner reservations. Locals love it, and it's just a cool place to hang out for a while.

this place is a little block building right near the pier, they have outside seating where you can enjoy your beer in the fresh air. The bartender was very friendly and attentive, and so were the other patrons. High recommended stop.

Friendly priced right. Nice little bar atmosphere. Only issue was soda was flat. But they served a mean corona with lime

I’ve been coming down to Kure Beach for 2 years and just love going into Bud & Joe’s and having a few ice cold beers and talk to the friendliest bartenders on the beach. All the people are just having a great time.

Small town spot that is fun and unpretentious. Beer is cold!!! Went on spur of the moment and plan to return. Young man named Evan was friendly and helpful.

We were on vacation and wanted to stop in for a drink. This bar doesn't have any outdoor seating so is not really a sandbar!! But it is cheap! Also, we went on a Tuesday and there was free pool. They did trivia as well....More
