Met a business associate (Friend) and his wife for a late dinner and we were all impressed! The restaurant was elegant, yet seemed small and local, a place that you can become very comfortable visiting. My friends were stuck in traffic and not sure if they would make it, so I started alone at at the bar. The server was... More

We ate here with friends while visiting Wilmington. Denis was our server, and he impressed us with his friendly personality and his attention to our every need. Three of us had the special that night, Swordfish in butter, served with mashed potatoes and green beans, all cooked to perfection. The other member of our party had fried oysters, which she... More

Food always consistently good. We make it a point to come here while in Wilmington. The service is excellent and my entire family enjoys this place even my folks who are locals to the area. Would recommend to anyone.

I can't get enough of there oysters. With several types offered here you will not be disappointed. I love starting at Happy Hour 5-7pm with the amazing Oyster Rockefeller these joys of heaven are $2 each. Topped with melted Gruyere cheese, Bacon and cream spinach you will take 8 down before you know it. Be sure to save room because... More

Exceeded expectations! Accomodated our family of 12 with a reservation and the patio worked very well for us (while it was next to the road, noise was low thanks for decorative wall). We felt price was reasonable compared to other places that tourists frequent, the food was very good value and service was great. Less than 5 minutes from Wrightsville... More

The Wilmington area has some great restaurants and we usually go to Indochine for sushi, but we stopped here and I ordered the Spicy Tuna and Kamehameha Rolls. The Kamehameha roll was a spicy tuna with mango and a sweet and sour sauce. Both were very good and worth the trip.

Wish I could give it 3 1/2 stars. The food is good, pricey and well prepared. But there is little elegance. Waiters fly everywhere with little personal interaction. The place is in constant motion and needs a Valium. Waiters should stop for a moment to say Hey! The bar is even more frantic. I've been here a dozen times and... More

Boca Bay has been a beach standard in Wilmington for many years. The food and atmosphere keep it a popular choice. It is dependent on seasonal help, however, so the service can be spotty. It has a lively bar, but the dining area (aside from outdoor) is relatively quiet, which is nice if you are looking to actually talk to... More

We were given water with meled ice cubes and the girl looked shocked when I asked for cup of... More

Driven by Boca Bay plenty of times, but never stopped. Our mistake. Very good place for a nice dinner. Plenty of good choices on the menu and a nice wine list. Entrees $17-23. Great specials and an organic greens salad that was as fresh as you'll find. Very good service, too. Grab a table outside. Even though right on Eastwood... More
