I live on Carolina Beach. I always recommend Granny’s to visitors for a home made breakfast. They have grits, and green fried tomatoes to add a southern flare to your breakfast! Very good and great prices.

Ok place. Really needs a renovation. Burger, BLT and smoked chicken sandwiches were just good. Service was good. That is all I can say.

There’s a lot of crap leading up to this, but the major points are the service was AWFUL and the food was barely mediocre. We visited on 7-31 and what was once one of our not-to-miss spots on our annual vacations has become somewhere we’ll...More
