We went back twice just to get the best shrimp salad we had ever had. We loved sitting out on the dock under an umbrella and feeling the river breeze. It was heaven! We liked Elijah's the best of all other dock eating places. Highly recommend it!

When visiting Wilmington we had to try Elijah's as we were fans of Dawson's Creek and though there is nothing to tell you the restaurant was used as a set it did not disappoint. The setting on the boardwalk at Chandler's Wharf over looking Cape Fear is perfect. Brandon looked after us and was very attentive, friendly and chatty. The... More

Elijahs is a very nice place to sit outside overlooking the river and enjoy a great view while eating a decent meal. There is lots of seafood here which my wife loved.I had a nice thick chowder and a steak salad that was OK. The service was good and our overall experience was positive. Check it out!

Stopped at Elijah's with my family on a day trip to Wilmington from the southern NC coast. The location is great. We sat outside and enjoyed our view of the river. Service was also great. However, the food, was not that great. I had the Carolina Chowder and my mom had the Red Chowder. While both had large clams, the... More

From the homemade yeast rolls, excellent chowder, savory crab dip, and well prepared seafood main courses, my colleagues and I thoroughly enjoyed our leisurely meal here. If you're looking for a good place to eat in Wilmington this is an excellent choice. Oh, and our waiter was excellent and hilarious. I plan to eat here every time I'm in Wilmington!

Ate here whilst visiting Wilmington. Plenty of restaurants to choose from but this had a good choice of food at good prices with a nice view over the river. The host was a bit short when we arrived but maybe she was just busy as the waiters were very friendly and topped our drinks up regularly. The food was very... More

Very lively dining on the deck overlooking the Cape Fear River. Good service for such a desirable summer dining spot and the food was up to par with a restaurant that has a good oyster bar and southern seafood menu.
