This place is authentic, old school Wrightsville Beach. Where the elite meet to eat. Best breakfast and lunch anywhere.

Good for typical breakfast, eggs, sausage bacon. Hash browns terrific. Biscuits were disappointing. Tasted underdone and doughy. Sausage good, large links.

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...More

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...More

No, they do not take any type of card. The store next door, Redix, has an ATM if you need it.

We have been out-of-town regulars for over 20 years. The staff at Causeway is great. Being a resort town they get a little turnover, but compared to most beach town, the turnover is tiny. David's staff do well working... More
