Nice ambiance, great service and delicious food. The she-crab soup is the best I have ever had. The crab dip is awesome. I have never had anything that wasn't delicious here.

My wife and I visited this week because of hotel concierge recommendation. We were very pleased. Started with a very nice shrimp cocktail. 7 medium large shrimp that were fresh. We both opted for the grilled shrimp dinner with side salad and Au gratin potatoes. Salad was cold and very fresh although a little small. Au gratin potatoes were different.... More

What a great restaurant. The best fried oysters I have ever eaten. Fresh oysters from 3 different locations to choose from.

Recommended by the hotel staff, we headed towards town just a short distance from the hotel on Market St. Very nicely decorated, with unique tables filled with sand and shells. A good sized menu and a blackboard filled with "fresh catches" that can be prepared several different ways. I chose to make my own combo of grilled scallops and fried... More

Went here with family for lunch while visiting from California and, all 5 of us had a great lunch. The fresh flounder, fried shrimp, fried clam strips, oysters, and shrimp and grits were all cooked to perfection and not over cooked. The blue crab dip was a great recommendation from our server, Maddie. Service was great as well.

My last night in Wilmington I got a recommendation from two hotel staff for this restaurant. I sat at the bar and asked the bartender for menu tips. The she-crab soup was extraordinary! I have been dying to ask someone whether the name of the dish is from a type of crab or because they use only girls. Still a... More

We stopped for a quick lunch on our way out of Wilmington. I would have to say it was just "okay". The location is on a busy highway so there is not an atmosphere of being at the beach. Our server was the only person on duty so he was waiting on lots of tables so sometimes there was a... More

Having a bowl of fresh shrimp to peel was a thrill as I had not been in this area for 40 years. Service was excellent too.

We lucked into finding Hieronymus Seafood Restaurant because the hotel we were staying at recommended that we would like it. They were wrong. We Loved it! We were greeted right away and seated promptly. Our waitress was very attentive and made sure everything possible was done to make our visit truly enjoyable. She succeeded. I chose the fresh trout and... More
