They have trivia on Mondays at 7:30pm. Winner gets gift cards. Shrimp tacos were awesome. Service was a little slow as to be expected because of trivia that was going on but not unreasonable. Good time.

Traveling with your dog? Usually you miss experiences, but not at the Riverwalk. Walk around with your dog, sit outdoors at Hell's Kitchen. The sidewalk host and the wait staff are casually hospitable. They bring your dog a party bucket of water. Order the Black and Bleu burger, easily the best burger I ever had. Very nice experience.

This ambient little restaurant/bar is in the middle of the Wilmington historic area. Great, friendly and quick service. Lots of beers- local and imported on the menu. Good kids menu also. The crab dip was absolutely fantastic and our server happily gave us a run down of the ingredients so we might replicate it. Was the showstopper of the meal... More

For a bar/pub this place ticks every box. Great pub grub, cold beer, fast friendly service and all the extras such as pool tables and live sport you could want. It is just off the main thoroughfare but worth the time to find. Draft beers were nice and cheap around $2.50 and most mains were around 10 bucks. The pork... More

We heard about this on the movie tour a while back and decided to try it today. It's the perfect spot for Dawson's Creek fans because it looks like you're stepping right onto the set. It's virtually unchanged from when it was used for the show. They also have Joey's actual rowboat hanging on the wall!!! Besides just the awesome... More

Hells Kitchen is always good for the dueling pianos and the bar food. You get plenty of food for the price and they offer bar, table, and booth seating.

I can't find a thing I don't enjoy on their menu, from AWARD WINNING WINGS to the BEST BURGER in town. Fries, salads & wraps are FABULOUS! GREAT STAFF & SERVICE...check Hell's Kitchen out when you're in WILMINGTON!

Small dive with bad food and bad service. Waitress was rude and slow, food was cold and not good. Several drinks at the table were good and several seemed to be missing the spirits so I guess you have a 50/50 chance on a good drink but that is it.
