Sit in the patio area and watch the river

We went for a late lunch yesterday. It was a beautiful day weather-wise. We sat outside under an umbrella and enjoyed watching the river, boats and passersby. The food and drinks were very good. We would love a return trip. We enjoyed the experience.

We have a tradition of eating lunch at Elijah's on every trip to the Wilmington area. It's so peaceful looking out at the water. The food is really good. We usually have the tuna sandwich, blackened. Always a relaxing and rewarding experience.

My husband and I came here for dinner for Valentines. We were able to get a table as soon as we arrived and it was next to the glass facing the River, which was very nice. We have eaten here and George's numerous times and the food is always good. The crab dip is a must try when you eat... More

Elijah's is now not only a regular restaurant stop, but our family goes there often when we are in the area. The restaurant is on the Cape Fear River at Chandler's Wharf. The food is well-prepared seafood. We love crab cakes and various fish sandwiches. Two kinds of chowder and chicken sandwiches are scrumptious. They always serve hot corn muffins... More

My favorite restaurant when I visit my daughter in Wilmington, NC. We've been here many times over the past several years and the food is always delicious and service excellent! We love the crap dip appetizer ~ FANTASTIC! Beautiful view of the Cape Fear River and surrounding area are a bonus!

This restaurant overlooks the river and the ambiance is wonderful. I have been going here for lunch for many years and always enjoy the experience. The last two visits I ate fish and chips and thought the food was very good and portions generous.

Upon entering Elijah's at 5:30 pm on a Wednesday evening, our party of eight was promptly seated inside so we could avoid the suddenly rampant chiggers. We had a nice view of the Riverwalk. But we were confused that some of the offerings we noticed online weren't on the menus we received. We were told that there were three different... More

A very relaxed, excellent restaurant. Enjoyed the attentive service. My son had fish and chips. I had a grilled tuna sandwhich. Both were delicious. The calamari appetizer was forgettable. Desserts were wonderful. I will return.

It's Easter Sunday and I had to ride 3 times around the block to find a spot. Clearly people want to come here and stay... me, too. The wide spacious deck for my outdoor dining today is warm with a slight breeze under a Sunday Sun and a Carolina blue sky. Of course!!! It's Sunday brunch at Elijah's indoors where... More
