Staying in Myrtle Beach for the week and took a drive up to Wilmington. If you are a fan fish tacos, it is a must try. Service was excellent as well.

You'll never go wrong for great seafood eats here. The outside seating is right on coastal waterway with views of bridge/boats/yachts all around. Love the Special of the Day and Crab Melt sandwich. Great beer selections also.
