Had breakfast here and tried the shrimp and grits----YUM! Was a home town, beach town restaurant with good food and good service.

The food was really good, but the wait staff left a bit to be desired. 4 tables of patrons, at least 6 wait staff and I had to find someone to ask for my bill.

I haven't checked the official Health Dept rating, but the place was not clean. If you used the rest rooms before you ate, you would walk out. And the dining room itself was not clean. They keep it very dark, so it's not immediately noticeable. The food was pretty terrible. I got fish tacos, probably the worse I've ever had.... More

Fab place to have breakfast/brunch. Great menu selection. Not a fancy place nor expensive. Hope to be back soon!

I have been to the King Neptune twice in the past month and both times found it to be exceeding average. The first time for taco night the tacos were cheap but not delicious. The service was young and hit or miss. The second time for lunch the fried shrimp and fries were pretty good as was the service. The... More

The atmosphere was great.....Bartender was awesome.....but less than an hour later, received call from fraud department saying we had fraudulent activity on our card. This was the only place we used this card since we arrived in town. I'm scratching my head on this one!! Someone there must be shady!!!

We take many compliance steps to ensure that this does not happen. If you could email me at neptuneswb@gmail.com I would like to see what we could do to make this situation better and... More

This humble looking restaurant was a pleasant surprise. We enjoyed perfectly cooked crab legs with unexpectedly delicious side dishes. The sautéed spinach was among the best I've had anywhere, and the mac n' cheese was homemade and full of flavor. There is convenient parking for the restaurant right across the street.

I've been here twice now and had a great experience both times. They happily accommodate kids (crayons are provided) and they're double mimosas make for happy adults! Brunch is fantastic - has eggs, waffles, etc - along with lighter options like a veggie panini. Staff is friendly and quick. Definitely will go here again when I'm in town.

We went here for years and it had gone downhill. We decided to revisit it and we're pleased. The atmosphere was not as unique but the food was great, especially the bowls.
