This is a hidden jewel for Kure Beach. The food is wonderful. It is good home cooking having a variety of food. The crabcake sandwich is awesome. It has been renovated to the look of the 1950's. The staff is wonderful.

If the Fonz had been asked to pay more than $10 for two hotdogs and fries, no soda malted or shake included, I'm sure he would have just gone back to the Cunningham's for dinner. Staff, view and no cost, city of Kure Beach parking great though!!

Wonderful diner! Excellent food and great service! I thought i didn't like hushpuppies, but my sister had me try one here. It was mouthwateringly delicious. She had the clam chowder and said it was the best she ever had. I had the club sandwich. It was great! Definitely coming back soon!

From the outside looking at the Kure Beach diner it appears to be a dump. I couldn't have made a greater mistake. While on a mini vacation my wife and I decided to try it for breakfast and couldn't have been more pleased. It only has around 17 tables and the place is exceptionally clean. The food was tasty (for... More

Came for lunch with over-hungry grandkids and our waitress, Patty, herself a grandma, was super! Food was great too. We go out of our way to find places like this, and we weren't disappointed.

We brought in a brood of five hungry kids and came out with full tummies and a decent check. The staff accommodated all eight of us very well. The food was excellent. Very fresh food with excellent meats. Highly recommend for burgers,

Great location at Kure Beach Pier. My husband and I searched out the diner during our first visit to Kure Beach. First stop was for lunch - I ordered the crab cake sandwich. While we waited for our order, the server brought a few delicious hush puppies. Yum!! And the crab cake sandwich was delicious!! I tried crab cakes at... More

I think they have outpriced themselves since they are at the beach. We paid $5.50 for one hot dog and fries, drink not included. We got 2 orders. .Our hotdogs were tough and we ate them anyway. I didn't say anything to anyone because everyone is always very nice and friendly in there. I always get hotdogs but this was... More
