We dined here for our anniversary and were incredibly disappointed. I know people love to dine here but the service was terrible and my husbands dinner was cold. We waited a very long time to be greeted, have our order taken, receive our food and to even close out our bill. Not sure if they were understaffed or what but... More

Great place right in the historic waterfront. Inside and outside seating. Great views of the USS NC Battleship and the Bridge. Seafood is well prepared and unique choices available. Eat here several times and never disappointed.

ELIJAH'S is always a Favorite when in Wilmington. Located on the Cape Fear Riverfront, we always enjoy dining on the patio. The menu is wonderful and the service is great. The HOT CRAB DIP is very special. Creamy and Rich...

We had dinner at Elijah's. My husband ordered the Fish & Chips and it was very good. I ordered the crab cakes on an English muffin. It was great. We also were told their hot crab dip was award winning and we ordered it. Loved it too. It's pricy but the food is good.

We came in for dinner. It definitely didn't start well. The restaurant was hot (80's) and the server was horrible. We started to order wine. I asked for a little description on the white wines and explained that I didn't want any of the Chardonnays as they were California and probably very buttery and heavily oaked. We asked for a...

We had heard this was a very popular restaurant, and it was quite busy. The staff was quite prepared for the level of activity. Elijah's is at a great location on the Riverwalk. Varied menu between the regular restaurant and the Oyster Bar.

Drinks at the bar - beer was cold, wine was fine, and my daughter had a chocolate cake that was devoured by the kids at the table. It was quite warm in the restaurant, but otherwise, not a bad experience.

Would have preferred to eat outside but the sun was too much so we ate inside. It looks small from the outside but plenty of room inside. Ordered the mixed grill, Mixed Grill The chef's selection of fresh seafood are char-grilled to perfection and finished with an herb butter. Served with rice pilaf and a vegetable medley. 23.95 was very... More

We always stop by Elijah's after our Sunday gig ushering @ Thalian Hall. The wait staff is attentive. The menu options are simple and good. We recommend the Calimari & The Bucket of Seafood. They have daily fish specials & options for the Land Lubber who prefers something else. Located on the Cape Fear Riverfront, dine outside if it's not... More
