Local Restaurants Fresh in Food and Atmosphere 

You won’t find chain restaurants here in Kure Beach. Only locally owned restaurants that feature the fresh catch of the day cooked-to-order with Caribbean-influenced seasonings, Big Daddy beach burgers, and authentic Italian cuisine in an Irish pub setting complete with a crooner singing in the background.

Just a short walk from the Kure Beach Pier, find something for everyone at these tried and true local restaurants. For fresh seafood, prime rib nights and a festive atmosphere, Jack Mackerel’s Island Grill is your little piece of paradise. Enjoy dinner and drinks on the deck at Big Daddy’s Restaurant or enjoy a romantic night out dining on fine Italian-American cuisine at Freddie’s, where visitors rave about their signature pork chops and specials are written out daily. Walk right up to Beach House Burgers, sandy toes and all, and enjoy home cooking at Kure Beach Diner.
