I love to belly up to the bar...as that is where the action is. I grew up in a family that owned a similar family-style restaurant. The wait staff are attentive and full of ideas and energy. They make sure you are happy with what...More

I would like to leave positive review if I had chance to actually eat there. 21 century and no CC acceptance ???!! Well this limitation left my family hungry at the morning. I’ll have my money spend somewhere else then.

We have been eating at Causeway Cafe for decades (at breakfast here, the day we got married in Wilmington). They always impress and do a great job. Food is great and the folks are friendly. It is the only restaurant that I am willing to...More

The menu is terrifically jammed through with everything imaginable. My wife and I had the 1/2 waffle with eggs over medium with 2 slices of bacon for $5.99 each. All were perfectly cooked. A warm atmosphere which feels like you are at home. Great wait...More

This place has a great selection on the menu. If you cannot find something you like, then you are too picky. The food was good, but the service average. Also, the place is in desperate need of a facelift. The decor goes back to the...More

Clearly a beach restaurant. Very informal and featuring mainly local foods. But spouse and I agreed the food was a bit too oily (greasy) for our taste buds and digestive systems. Service was fine. No credit cards accepted. Cash or checks only, but they considerately...More

Not good for takeout. The food was OK. But...cash only, and the kids waffles came without syrup or whipped cream, even though the menu says it comes with it and we were told over the phone that it would be in a separate container. Also,...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
