Settle in for a big hearty breakfast or a post-beach lunch with a visit to The Banks Grill. Known for classic breakfast and mid-meal staples, this small restaurant with a diner-style menu has a loyal following among vacationers and Morehead City locals alike.

The big draw at The Banks Grill is the breakfast fare, and hungry patrons won’t be disappointed. Breakfast plates are piled high with eggs, home fries, toast, and unique specialties like breakfast burritos and Lighthouse benedict with deviled crab cakes instead of the traditional Canadian bacon. The Banks Grill’s omelets are a favorite among longtime visitors, and features “Build Your Own” options, as well as coastal favorites, including the signature omelet with sautéed NC shrimp, fresh mushrooms, crumbled bacon, green onions, and pimiento cheese.

Lunchtime visitors will also be treated to heaping plates, as well as a varied menu that features fresh salads, big burgers and hot dogs, and southern-style lunchtime fare, such as a Carolina BBQ Sandwich with pulled pork, a Lighthouse Shrimp Burger with golden brown shrimp, and Baja tacos with choice of protein. Not for delicate appetites, The Banks Grill will be a hit for both breakfast and lunch fans who want to try classic southern sandwiches and breakfast staples at their big, bold best.
