Great food and atmosphere. This place has a outdoor eating area right beside the Cape Fear River. The food was delicious. I tried the burger and fries and it was cooked to order. My friends enjoyed their food as well. Highly recommend this restaurant...

My husband and I along with four friends recently ate at this riverside restaurant. Everyone liked what they had: salads, crab cakes, shrimp and grits, etc. The service was very good as was the view. The crab cakes that I had were the best!

Very scenic location on the riverwalk. Food was good, as well as the service. The restaurant was very clean, and not noisy. Prices were reasonable, not very pricey. During the Summer tourist season reservations would be advisable.

This is Mom's favorite restaurant in Wilmington so we always go when I visit. Yummy corn muffins instead of bread and a wide array of seafood. Dad gets the Calabash platter, Mom gets shrimp and grits, sister and I go for seared tuna and double...More
