This is a down-home, simple, family run restaurant, nothing fancy, but there is a reason people are always lined up outside waiting to get in. We've been here several times over the last few years when we visit our family, and along with a trip to the ocean, this is always one of our stops.

My wife and I stopped in for breakfast. There is usually a long line and we saw that the wait was short. Great food and the best pancakes around. The service is excellent and the atmosphere is shabby nautical. Clean and no frills. A most popular place for locals.

Everything about the restaurant is worn and old. It appears there has been no investment in 30 or 40 years. You share the men's room with a very large water heater. None of this takes away from the quality of food and service. On a January Saturday morning there was a half hour wait. Mike, the owner, takes your name... More

We always stop here for breakfast before heading home to Raleigh. There is almost always a wait and not a lot of atmosphere, but the food is incredibly good. The serving are also large and the staff really nice. Great bacon, hash browns and two eggs seemed more like four. I am a big eater and this held me over... More

We have eaten at Causeway Cafe since it opened 30 years ago. It's a tradition in our family to go there on the morning we are leaving the beach. From waffles to Eggs Neptune, we've tried them all and always had good food. The best part of the experience is waiting on the wide wooden front porch, drinking the provided... More

Great food and prices are very reasonable...Breakfast is great. Can always depend on good service along good food. Prepare to wait in that it is very popular with locals, etc. nothing fancy but then prices are hard to beat. Eat and go type place.

I always eat one meal, sometimes two, during my visits to Wrightsville Beach. I love the Carolina Blue Crab omelette. The grits are good and so are the biscuits. If you go in the summer there is usually a wait but you can sit on the front porch and visit or read the paper while waiting to be called. Speaking... More

We come here for our anniversary the same weekend every fall. This place is cash only, and the food is good. The owner, Dave, positively SCREAMS your party name, once, and you may take or miss your table. Meh.
