First visit. Very busy night but we did not have to wait. The food was excellent. The wait staff incredible. Beautiful atmosphere. Please make a reservation to get the best table, but every table appears to be the best. Well lighted, which is a plus for me. Overhead noise rather muted so that you can have a decent conversation with... More

by far the best hidden secret in Wilmington. Fresh seafood, great servers, nice portions. Price on the high side but by the time you get your food and realize you are eating high quality you don't mind paying the price. Great value.

Like the overall atmosphere, very inviting and relaxing. Staff went beyond what was expected. I had an issue with my order and was not really eating it. The waitress noticed and asked what was wrong. I said it just doesn't taste like it normally does. She took it back, without my asking and brought me another order which this time... More

Our group of over 14 ladies had lunch here last week & everyone loved their meal!! Our server was terrific & very patient with all of us -she made our lunch very enjoyable. I had the shrimp tacos with a delicious mango sauce-I would highly recommend it! Can't wait to go back for dinner with my husband.

Finally found a place in Wilmington with great seafood. They do a fine job with the Calabash style fried fish and critters that I like, while doing an equally fine job with entrees like fish tacos, Grouper Osso Bucco, which I have almost surely spelled wrong, and Jambalaya. Full bar, prices reasonable, and they did a good job dealing with... More

We selected this restaurant hoping the food was as interesting as its description. The chef, waiters and especially the food was even better than expected. We will definitely return to this restaurant when in Wilmington.

Tucked away in a shopping center (who would have guessed) this restaurant was a pleasant surprise. The fish is prepared as you like - broiled, blackened, etc. with your choice of sauces (the mango sauce was delicious). The service was top drawer. It was "Bonefish good" with a wider selection and better prices,

My beloved wife and I have eaten here several times and each time the seafood has been fresh and tasty. The service is attentive and it is obvious that the management wants you to enjoy your experience. They have a nice selection of beers on tap and the atmosphere is very tasteful and comfortable, despite being in a strip mall.... More

This was one of the most pleasant and tastiest seafood meals we have had in recent years, and we just came here from the Maine coast. The restaurant is clean and neat, the staff uber-friendly, the service excellent and the food outstanding. I had a fresh grilled striped bass (one of three catch of the day, plus a creamy risoto...

Found this place from yelp and I don't regret it one bit. Thanks yelpers. We ordered the sweet and sour shrimp for starters and then tried the flounder basket and shrimp and grits. Each item was cooked to perfection. Will be back.
