This place is so low key that there is not even a name on the outside. But they have their own parking lot and the dining room was more than half full on a Thursday evening. They have specials Monday thru Thursday. I chose the half price hibachi combo of noodles, health veggies, shrimp and scallops. The wife had grouper tacos. Our only regret was that we could not finish the generous servings. Meal prices are between $10-$20.

We dined here on the basis of trip advisor recommendations. It was offseason but the place was busy, a good sign. The portions are generous and not expensive for a seafood restaurant at the beach. My daughter had the fry basket and was able to get double shrimp. They were fried perfectly and served piping hot as was our calamari appetizer. The stuffed flounder was good however the crab stuffing was heavily breaded. Good casual seafood in an informal atmosphere.

We have been going to Neptune's for decades, watching the ownership change three times. Although we were disappointed when Bernie and Pam sold the restaurant several years ago, we remained occasional customers for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The last dinner we had was on a Taco Tuesday several months ago. We thought the tacos were pretty bad......but for $1 or $2, who could complain? Up until this morning, we enjoyed our breakfasts there and thought they did a decent job for a reasonable price. Today really changed our minds. I had the vegetable frittata and was the only one who enjoyed the food. Others in my party ordered scrambled eggs, pancakes, and the "blueberry" waffle special. Both the pancakes and eggs were dry. The waffle appeared to be a frozen one and was served with a tiny container of blueberries. The "hash browns" are frozen tater-tots.
The tables and chairs were dirty and the service was awful. The waitress clearly had other places to be and was exasperated when one member of our party wasn't ready to order when she brought our beverages. She brought us our check shortly after delivering our food and came back to get the check before we were finished eating. We were there at 9:00 AM, so it's not as if breakfast service was ending.
We are so sad that this Wrightsville Beach institution is obviously cutting corners.

Great food, for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Specials on beer. Awesome location. Real beach, laid-back atmosphere. Good service.

We enjoyed the evening there despite it being full of 20 somethings. Lots of interesting decorative pirate stuff and local fisherman pictures.
