Oh boy... the food is delicious but especially the biscuits... yum, yum!! The staff is also very friendly!! My husband and I ate breakfast at the diner almost every morning while at Kure Beach. Can't wait to visit again!

I have been coming here for about 10 years, whenever I am lucky enough to visit the area. The food is simply delicious and the staff make you feel at home. Talk to them if they’re not too busy and ask questions about the photos...on the walls or anything you’d like to know about Kure Beach. If you like this place, buy one of their shirts and tell your friends about it! But don’t tell too many - I would prefer not to wait in line!More

Ok. We went here multiple times.food is good.prices are fairly high.wait staff are nice and polite since you're going to tip them. Management real uppity but not around most times. Food???? Fairly good.breakfast til 11am then lunch and then i think they close at or...about 2pm. For some off the wall stupid reason that deems popular with eating places everywhere these days. And Holidays ?? ??goodness gracious. I think they would all die if they had to work. Guess they figure if you are alone or single get a can of beans...cause they all are going to be closed.More

I’m sorry your experience was not what you expected. Clearly you have not been in very often. This is off season and the only time of the year we get days off. Management works 7 days a week. Most days 14 hours. As for holidays,...More

We went this morning for breakfast and had a great meal. I had an old North Carolina staple of country ham and it didn’t disappoint. The wife had an omelet and we both had the home fries (outstanding). Will definitely be back on our next...visit.More

My wife and I recently had lunch at the Kure Beach Diner and we were very happy with their service and food. We were immediately met at the door, seated, and our drink orders taken. My wife and I shared a Reuben sandwich and an...order of fries. The food was hot and delicious. Since we shared a sandwich the waitress offered and brought a separate plate for us to use. Give this little diner a chance, they deserve it.More

Ate here just this morning. Last time I had gotten an egg and bacon biscuit. This time I saw another that had biscuits and gravy. Thankfully, I asked if it was one or two biscuits. It was only one. I got this and it filled...the plate. Wonderful taste. I ended up taking half back to the hotel it was so mush food. As always, they kept the coffee coming and had a really great atmosphere.More

The south end of the pipe is about 1/2 mile north of the Kure Beach fishing pier and the north end is perhaps 1 to 1 1/2 miles north of the pier. (The distances are just guesses.)
