Either the kitchen or the server's timing needs work. Steak, scallops, potatoes, asparagus and soup all arrived properly cooked but only luke warm.

I got a salad with grilled chicken and it was just OK. The greens in it did not taste fresh, but the chicken was pretty good. All in all,... More

Staff very, very slow, not busy. Staff walks away while you're still talking to them. Food was excellent, great outdoor seating

We met up with another couple for dinner and enjoyed it. Elijah's sits on the river and offers a great view of it. Weather permitting, I recommend dining outside weather permitting as the river enhances the dining experience. The oyster bar opens early and serves a variety of oysters, "light bites" and liquors. Elijah's known for its seafood didn't disappoint.... More

We have been to Elijah's several times over the years. Seating is available inside and outside. What a great view of the Cape Fear River! The servers are always friendly and polite. Fish dishes are our favorites here, especially the shrimp and grits.

While visiting friends they suggested we come here. Seated promptly on the outside deck with a nice view of the river. Waitress was efficient and courteous. I ordered the shrimp po-boy. Mounds of shrimp, nicely cooked, great flavor. Another one of us had the stuffed shrimp which she liked. Two of the other diners had the shrimp and grits which... More

The crab cakes were amazing with large pieces of crab. Very filling and reasonably priced for the beautiful view on the waterfront.

We really enjoyed the food. The only problem was it took 14 minutes for the server to appear at the table. Went to the host and she said the server would be reprimanded. That was it. Glad we stayed because the food was great. Would have expected at least a visit from the manager.
