I went to Wilmington for a Birthday day trip with my daughter. Neither of us had any experience with restaurants there so we checked our handy Tripadvisor and found "Elijah's". What a blessing! We had two of the best meals we each had in a long time. We had the sampler appetizer which we found extremely delicious! The seafood dishes... More

Excellent lunch and dinner dining on the river. Sit inside and feel like your in an old ship or outside on the water.

First time in Wilmington and taken to Elijah's by family. Nice view of the river and nice atmosphere. Ordered lunch and all meals were good and the prices reasonably.

I had very high expectations for this restaurant. A friend bragged so much about how good the food was going to be....the food was ok. I was a little disappointed in the limited choices on the lunch menu. We had both types of clam chowder (red & white); the soups arrived lukewarm, we ate them and let the waitress know... More

Excellent service. Specials were great. Loved the stuffed grouper. I never hesitate to send large visiting groups to Elijah's. Never been disappointed.

This restaurant was one of the first we went to, when we moved from NY to NC. I have been here several times over the years, though not recently. I confess that for me personally, it's because of the location on the Cape Fear River rather than for the food. The food is okay, but to me, the reason to... More

We enjoyed the view of the river while we ate & the service was very good. The food was good, but I felt the seafood selection was lacking. The only option for shrimp was in a seafood platter.

We dined at Elijah's after it was recommended by several local shop owners. The outdoor seating are provides a nice view of the Cape Fear river and, at the time we were there, a beautiful sunset. The chowder, which was highly recommended, was a great success. All four of us at dinner were impressed with the flavor and substance. Of... More
