We decided to try out Surfs one day for a quick lunch. The food was good - better than your typical bar food. If you're looking for fine dining, this is not the place; but if you want a friendly bar with great service and a good meal, this is for you. The best part of our visit was the... More

When my husband and I moved to Wilmington three years ago, this used to be one of our favorite places. There was normally live music on the weekends and the bar area was large. We have had several encounters with one of the managers and none have been pleasant (from giving away our reserved table for a large party to... More

We ordered take out after an afternoon on the beach. We got burgers, soup, and the crab dip. The burgers were awful, they were big but we only ate about half because they were dried out. The chips were overcooked and we threw them out. The soup was served in a styrofoam cup, French onion in a styrofoam cup, and... More

My family and I have been going to Surfs since they opened. We have NEVER had a bad meal and the prices can't be beat. Alicia, Kate, and Toni are the best in town. They make the best wings and burgers on the planet.....and they know how to treat the regulars as well as the "newbies". Great atmosphere with plenty... More

My experience at Surfs Bar & Grill was not the best - but the manager made it right. And, they do have some decent specials, in a neighborhood type place and you are hungry and just need to eat. Nice sized place with a great bar size and karaoke on Tuesdays. They also have some specials during the week that... More

Seemingly every restaurant in town gets four stars. It's tough to diferentiate. This place is a sports bar with underpriced specials and beer. I mean $2 for a pint of Yuengling? Come on! And $5 for a huge burger? Daily specials make this place compelling. The bar is packed, tables are full. We'll be back.
