Nice dinner on the patio

We ate dinner on the covered patio at Elijah's. We chose this restaurant because the menu on their website indicated that they had a lot of options for those who don't enjoy seafood. Once we sat down, however they only had a couple non seafood options. However everyone who enjoyed seafood, really... read more

We liked the food, the service, the vibe and the view at Elijah's on the waterfront. It was very full, but our server was attentive and the delicious food arrived quickly. Highly recommend this restaurant.

I ordered the chef's special of the day which was grilled grouper over creamy parmesan risotto topped with a fire roasted pepper sauce and accompanied by roasted tri colored carrots. It was simply superb and the young man who was our waiter (whose name I wish I recalled) was exceptional. I'd go here often if I lived in Wilmington.

Waiter was super friendly, helpful and knowledgable about the menu. The food was gourmet for a very reasonable price. I was very impressed with the fish and the portion was a perfect size.

My husband and I asked the front desk reception for suggestions and this was on her list. The outdoor dining was nice as it overlooked the river. The dinner was good. We did not get anything too fancy. We got a popcorn shrimp sandwich and crab cakes on english muffin. Beer choices were nice as well. I would eat her... More

The Carolina Chowder needs help. It was too thick and lacked taste. The crab cakes on English muffins were ok but the crab cake tasted somewhat soggy. This restaurant has an amazing outdoor seating area with killer views of the Cape Fear River. Our server was nice and did get us credit for the failed soup after saying they usually... More

Ate here a few times and the food and service were great! Love dining and looking out on the river. Downtown Wilmington is a great place. We are locals, come here often, and still love it!
