I went to Elijahs early to beat the crowd (@5 pm). It did get crowded as I sat there and took my time ordering and enjoying wine. I even sat a bit longer to enjoy the live music. I never felt rushed or that the wait staff was annoyed. The waiter was very friendly, the food was good, the view... More

Eleven for dinner outside on the deck was a lovely setting for a small family reunion. Service was exceptional and the food was great to the satisfaction of all which was no small feat for this crowd.

There is nothing like a good glass of wine to accompany an excellent meal while overlooking the Cape Fear during sunset! Just magnificent!

Lovely setting on the riverfront. Salmon was perfectly cooked, outrageous chocolate mousse torte. Waiter was attentive but not intrusive. Overall delightful experience.

Our experience was not a good one. The service was not very good....our hostess was rude and our waitress was not pleasant. So we thought "okay....let's bypass that and order a tasty lunch". Our starter was the calamari...not only was it cold but the the breading was awful. I ordered the crabcakes....loaded with breading & not enough crab. I could... More

We had read reviews on Trip Advisor that Elijah's was more gourmenty than the Pilot House. Found the exact opposite on our visit. Our portions were very generous, and the Pilot Houses to be smaller. The chowder is excellent, believe it has Rosemary as an ingredient. the fish special was three seafoods, blackened, an excellent choice, wife (who eats no... More

We went lunch here with our daughter and thoroughly enjoyed the kicked-back, relaxed lifestyle that is Wilmington and the water. Sit on the outside deck and take in the sights and sounds! The food was fantastic, as we did our typical "order-all-the-appetizers-and-lets-see-how-it-goes" route!!
