I rated this restaurant about a year ago and was totally unimpressed. We always practice the there strike rule when eating out. We ate here for lunch on August 23rd. The food was outstanding as well as the service. I had a tuna steak sandwich which was to die for. My husband ordered the fish and chips. Our waitress was... More

Great place to cool off after a sunny walk on the Cape Fear Board Walk or stroll around downtown Wilmington. Covered patio or air conditioned dinning room. Great view of the river, right on the board walk. We went on a Friday at lunch and were seated right way. Dark paneling and natuical touches tie in with the local history.... More

Had dinner here with another family while visiting Wilmington. The food was great but not overwhelmingly memorable. The best part was the attentive service from our waitress despite the relatively large size of our party (9). It is a great place to go for nice ambiance and great view. We all ordered something different and everything was tasty. Would come... More

Elijah's has become a tradition in our friend group. The atmosphere is good, the staff are excellent, and the Carolina Chowder is worth the 3 hour drive alone. The only downside is that's pretty much the best thing they have. We have gone there 3 times and every time the soup was amazing but our main dishes were just average,... More

We came as a recommendation from a friend. I was not impressed with anything but the view. I ordered steamed oysters that I couldn't open, nor could my friend. A gentleman seated near us came over and opened them. The oysters were bland. The special was grouper oscars. It was a bit fishy and at one point slimy. The waiter... More

Attractive décor, nice water front location, good service. Food was just okay. Would try it again if in Wilmington again, maybe my selection was the best they had to offer.

Food was great. We were able to order additional things that were not even listed on the lunch menu. Wait staff was very helpful, nearby but not intrusive. Good for a business lunch meeting.

The outdoor patio gives you a beautiful view of the river. We both started off with Caesar salads which were pretty good. I had the mixed grill which was mahi-mahi, salmon and shrimp which tasted fresh and flavorful. My husband had the fresh-catch tuna which he also enjoyed. Cape Fear sunset cocktail was also very good! Would definitely go back.

I have lived in Wilmington for 4 1/2 years and downtown has to be my absolute least favorite part about Wilmington. I'd heard so much about Elijah's I decided to try it. I was taken back by how great the service and food were. Excellent crab dip and everyone's seafood entree's were amazing. Excellent seafood and the view on the... More
