Delicious/Loud Atmosphere

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!

Good place to hang out with friends and enjoy some food and some beers! Our server was really nice and the food came fast. It was decently priced also!

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

I stopped here for dinner, and wasn't sure what to expect. It was quite loud inside, and all of the numerous TV's were featuring sports games. We ate at the bar, and it was comfortable, with quick and efficient service. My friend wanted a mixture of sweet potato and waffle fries, and the request was easily accommodated. Overall, the food...

The place looks like a dive bar when you walk inside, but we were pleasantly surprised with the quality craft food they had to offer!

I often stop off here for their 1/2 price appetizers before going to Cinematique (@ Thalian Hall). The food & service are both very good. Prices are very fair & portions are large. I've always gotten good service and enjoyed good food here. That is the good. The bad is that it is somewhat of a 'sports bar' ... &... More

The best thing about Hell's Kitchen is that they don't try to be anything more than a good old fashioned pub. It's comfortable and has just enough of an edge to it. It's one of our favorite bars in Wilmington.

We visited a restaurant earlier that week that had 86'd their fried pickles. It was all I wanted and my hunny feared that if he didn't feed my craving others would begin! We went to Hells Kitchen on free bacon night and were sat immediately. Our waitress, Jessica was wonderful, and never made us feel rushed. We got there right... More
