Eat here, it was great! Walked here from my hotel downtown and it was great. Had a good time on the deck sitting with friends laughing up a storm.

Perfect night for outdoor dining, The food met our expectations.The place needs a good cleaning,the outdoor tables need to be cleaned before patrons arrive and the restrooms needed serious attention

Not sure we had ever eaten at Elijah's previously. They had a very good menu to choose from. Our party ordered fish and chips, crab cakes, and the fried oyster sandwich. Everything was outstanding and the Bloody Mary's were perfect. Great location, great service, great river view, and excellent food. Very highly recommended.

Ordered calamari as an appetizer...not the best I have ever had but still good! Ordered the crab cake entree with mixed veggie medley..very good! A must if you visit the river walk in Wilmington!

The location is fantastic. Right on the river. Outside dining with covered patio is great, even in the rain. Staff and service were very good. Unfortunately the food was only ok. We'd go back for the atmosphere and view, but not for the seafood.

My husband and I decided to eat at Elijah's for our 5th wedding anniversary. It was the best choice! The service was on point, the food was absolutely delicious, the prices were reasonable, and the view was amazing. I cannot say enough about how great this restaurant and our experience was for dinner.

Elijah's is a delight! Great atmosphere, gorgeous food, attentive and well-trained staff... and the views over the river with the sun setting are just lovely. We went once, then back the next evening, because we had enjoyed it so much. Don't miss the spectacular Hot Crab Dip.

Went to lunch with friends and sat outside, watching the river. Our waitress was good, food was pretty good. One friend had a side of summer squash which was under cooked and almost cold and another had a side of fruit in which the cantaloupe was not sweet. Crab cake was delicious and their iced tea tastes freshly brewed and... More

They have a large selection to choose from along with a kids menu. Fair prices and food was very good. You can eat indoors or outside porch or patio w/umbrellas that overlooks Cape Fear River. We were going to go to Georges which is walking distance but they didn't have as big of a selection on their menu and prices... More

Very much enjoyed visiting this restaurant and ordered one of the specials of the day. Was prepared excellently and came quickly. Dinner salads were very good and entree was tasty and fresh. Waiter was exceptional and didn't "over-do". He was there when we needed him and provided fine service. The seating was enjoyable with a view of the river and... More
