Yummy Delicious!

My mom and I decided to stop in during Azalea Festival for a hamburger and were most surprised. We ordered the veggie quesadilla and the most delicious "The Devil Made Me Do It" hamburger ever. The Sweet Potato fries had sugar on them so we didn't eat them but the regular fries were very good. I... read more

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.

Pros: 1.They served the Guinness at the right temperature (between cool and room temp). 2.We had dinner to watch Duke b-ball and they moved on to the Final Four. Cons: 1. The fries were floating grease so we returned them. The next fries they brought out were just a little better. We didn't eat them. 2. The caesar chicken wrap... More

We ended up here on the day of the St. Paddy's Day parade. It was packed, but we found a booth and enjoyed decent pub food. The atmosphere is really what should bring you to this spot...though they do have a sizeable beer selection. Great wait staff and good location, all add up to a pretty good place to stop... More

I've only been here once but I will be back! I went on a Wednesday where the special was $6.66 burgers. Honestly, GREAT BURGER and fries! I spent under $10 for lunch and it was a good lunch! The whole group enjoyed the food the only thing I wouldn't recommend would be the honey mustard... Weird taste but don't let... More

The food was so good that we ate there twice in one day. It is a loud atmosphere therefore it was difficult to chat with each other. Overall a great experience!

this is a place only for sandwiches and snacks, not whole meals. it's a great place to drink. wilmington is "the port city", and known for seafood. this is not the place to go for that. i got the fried shrimp, and was appalled. encased in a heavy, overwhelming batter armor. after removing all the armor there was little shrimp...

This place is nothing to cheer over -- Its your typical bar with a famous name slapped on it to make it marketable.. The food is average, nothing that wow'd me. Paid 42 dollars including tip for less than a handful of fries and a small burger, 6 wings, and two specialty drinks. The only thing that made it worth... More
