Decided on a seafood dinner while traveling through to Florida nod at the beach. Enjoyed a butter Charonnay that I throughly enjoyed. The fresh catch of the day was Mahia Maha that was delicious. Although the restaurant was in a strip mall the good, service and atmosphere was not.

Firstly, this is the best delicious seafood dinner (including appetizers) that I can remember having in a long time. Wow! I try to sample everyone's She crab soup whenever available, when we eat out. This by far was the BEST I have ever enjoyed. Tasty and every spoon full overflowing with crab meat. The crab dip was very delicious also.... More

My husband had the flounder and clams, it was delicious. I had the fried shrimp and fried oysters, they were both lightly fried and delicious. The staff service was great.

Located right on Market street, this is a great little find. My 25 year old son shared this find with us. Quite and well located. This place has great food and is not a chain establishment. It has a personality all its own. Food is great and moderately priced.

We are always searching for good seafood restaurants for lunch that offer raw oysters and other favorites. What a pleasant surprise in Hieronymous Seafood restaurant in Wilmington. The oysters were absolutely mouth watering. We started with the gumbo that we shared which was first rate. My husband had a seafood salad that was fresh and crisp. We splurged and had... More

Found this place on Trip Advisor, only a mile away from my hotel. What a find! Best She-Crab soup and Shrimp & Grits I've ever had, great homemade cheese biscuits, a nice fresh Caesar salad as a side, and local beers on tap (nice and cold). Friendly service, and 80's Pop/Rock on the sound system. Doesn't get much better...they have... More

We ate here for lunch. My first visit. The lunch specials are very reasonable and you can get a variety of fresh fish in 4 oz. cuts. The She crab soup is great as well as the service.

Had lunch here the other day; portions were lunch-sized, not overwhelming (a good thing). Nice selection of salads to which seafood could be added. Different types of fish preparations available (fried, of course, but also broiled, sautéed, blackened). Garlic biscuits are delicious! Friendly and attentive staff.

If you are looking for fresh catch in this area, Hieronymous is the place to go! I recommend that you look for the chalkboard of market catch for the day and choose the way you want it prepared. My husband and I have enjoyed both grouper and tilefish with the lemon caper preparation-- so delicious. We had a very nice... More
