We visited Elijah's while visiting today and found it to be a pleasant dining experience. You can eat (or drink) inside, on a covered patio, or just off the Riverwalk outside. We chose to eat on the covered patio as it was a little cool to eat outside. We enjoyed drinks and the view. We had both raw oysters and... More

We would make the trip to Elijahs a two hour drive just for the wonderful Carolina Chowder alone. If you have not tried this chowder do yourself a favor and do so. We also like the fish and chips, the crab dip, and almost anything we have tried at Elijahs. Good food, excellent service, and a table beside the Cape... More

Dined here because the place next door had a two hour wait. The Carolina Chowder was not bad; almost the consistency of a country gravy. Not much substance but good flavor. I ordered the shrimp and scallops which came scampi style. I'm unsure what the sauce was, some thin cream sauce. Nothing much to write about. My son ordered the... More

The best part of eating at Elijah's was the outdoor yet enclosed dining. We brought our baby and the staff made sure we were comfortable and had a good time. The tuna sandwich was great. Way better than I expected but still cooked a little too much for rare. The sides were nothing to write home about, the soup was... More

Unmatched view, cornbread & seafood. It's really tough to beat this place if you value ambience & great food.

The food here is good and I have been here many times and is always consistent. It has a great view of the river from about anywhere in the restaurant. Don't miss eating here.

Love their cornbread. Food is good, location is excellent. So nice to sit by the river. We've been for lunch and dinner and loved it for both

Elijah's strength is that it has a great location. You can sit and watch the world go by right alongside the mighty Cape Fear River and you are within a couple of minutes walking of downtown Wilmington. My husband and I like to sit at the bar and have a dozen oysters and a chilled glass of white wine. As... More
