Britt's Donut Shop

Reviewed By Apryl J - Charlotte, North Carolina

I was at the Boardwalk and I visited Britt's on Sunday 4/1 at 5pm. The donuts are delicious, reminded me of KK but what I appreciate about Britt's is that their donuts are hand-made not made by a machine. I wish that I would have know that I could've taken a seat at the counter and ordered my donuts instead of waiting in line for 30 minutes, but it was totally worth it! Will visit again!! Oh yeah- cash only!

Excellent choice of farm-to-table vegetables and seafood. The wait staff is attentive and well-informed, happy to answer questions and to make sure the diner is comfortable and pleased. Nice wines accompany the food, as well as draft beers. Children are welcome and have their own choices.

Ida Thai Cuisine

Reviewed By Pembabec - Isla Bastimentos, Panama

I seriously do not know what I love more about this gem; the food or the wonderful family who runs the whole kitchen kaboodle! I like everything on their menu. Made as you order, fresh lovely ingredients, the best customer service. I usually call ahead on my way home from work and order my fav, Spicy Basil Noodles. I have not once been disappointed. Eat in or take out the quality is the same, the prices are great. Well done!

Kate's Pancake House

Reviewed By GatorDWV - Princeton, West Virginia

This has become a regular part of our annual Carolina Beach family vacations. There is absolutely nothing fancy about this place, but it is always crowded during summer mornings. It comes as no surprise that pancakes are the specialty, and a wide variety of flavorful configurations are on the menu. The staff are friendly even though they are very busy. Always enjoy coming here as part of our family vacation tradition.

Price are ok, staff friendly. Always noisy with to loud speakers. Food is ok, chicken is probably the best option. Regular burger are not too be tried. Room is decorated like a Californian beach canteen.

The Fudgeboat

Reviewed By ngf61 - richmond, virginia

The owner has her picture on the outside of the shop and is inside with a ready smile and conversation if you care to talk to her. The fudge is good, old-fashioned, unapologetic, decadent, and delicious. Price was reasonable for the serving size, and comes in nice box for travel. They also have ice cream. Excellent stop on the way home from a day at the beach, or worth going out of the way pick some up or order online!!

Gulfstream Restaurant

Local favorite for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Causal dining overlooking the Yacht Basin in the heart of Carolina Beach. Daily specials, seafood specialties and a full range of family fare.

Reviewed By MDO44 - Ontario

It was below freezing at the campground, so we opted for breakfast out. Place was beautiful and warm, and service was outstanding. My biscuits was lovely, as was the grits, and my poached eggs were perfect. However, my breakfast sausage patties were much below par (overcooked, and very chewy), my husband eggs Benedict also sub-par with back bacon that was very mediocre, and a Hollandaise that was not.

Island Ice Factory

Reviewed By NY22 - Charlotte, North Carolina

Average ice cream. Service was sub par. I asked the teenager working a few questions and what I believe is the owner or manager answered for her in an irritated tone. She was also very annoyed w me when i released I made a mistake and I asked to split my medium into two smalls even though it would have been more money for them. We were buying for five so it's not like we were trying to cheat them. So bc of the managers attitude and only decent ice cream I would try another shop next time.
