If you like a delicious meal and want to know about ask the ingredients, this is your place. The wall that doubles as a menu is packed full of options for celiacs, carnivores, vegans & anyone else who likes to eat. Fresh & delicious - a Wilmington treasure.

First and foremost I have to say I lived 40 years of my life in suburbs of NYC, about 1 hr outside in NJ. I have been exposed to so many restaurants and food and consider myself very good at recommending a good place to eat. Unfortunately, Sweet n' Savory is far from one of them. From the reviews here...

Disappointed by food quality, preparation and presentation. In addition, a manager was reprimanding staff in the open kitchen. Refrigeration units were very loud. The open kitchen area appeared unkempt. Poor dining experience today.

Tucked on a street near the drawbridge to Wrightsville Beach, this is an excellent and popular restaurant known to most locals. There is a very broad menu with daily specials, sandwiches, finer formal dishes like steak and seafood, along with a bakery with a nice selection of breads, desserts, and other baked goods. In addition, there is a very good... More

We have been going to Sweet N Savory for years. You can't beat the down home "Wilmington" atmosphere and food. The bands are a welcome attraction and in addition to their talents they don't play so loud that you can't hear the person next to you. Breakfasts are wonderful BUT they have seemed to have dropped they guard in the... More

As prices increase here quality goes down. The French dip was grizzly, the hamburger buns served soggy and wet with the steak burger. It has been overrated for several years now...they had better skill cooks in the past. The past 3 or 4 visits we sit there and say there are better choices.. what happened. ..use to be much better.

Well known by locals for its food , service and... More

Needed takeout food for a working dinner. Excellent meat loaf dinner. Others in my group had sandwiches, salads, and a chicken dish...everyone thought it was very good.
