Dine on the porch

Incredible cape fear views from the porch. Decent cocktails, nice seafood selections. Incredible location within historic town and waterfront. A must do for the downtown Wilmington experience.

This review is based on more than one visit... It appears that this restaurant only remains open because of location and out of towners??? The outdoor area is beautiful, but the food quality has been consistently poor, as well as the wait staff. I seriously doubt that we will return, waterfront or not. And there are other good waterfront options.

Party of two of us went there. Ordered a bucket of oysters and wife ordered a main. Main came - no oysters for me... they gave my bucket to another table by mistake! So they said sorry, and that a new one would be out in 10 mins. So we waited, my wife ate her main - she says her... More

Enjoyed it so much we ate there two times. Food is fresh and the view is beautiful. Outside seating at sunset is a must during the summer.

Elijah's has one of the best seats in downtown for waterfront dining. However, as a local living in Wkilmington, Inthink the food is pricey for the quality. I had stuffed shrimp for dinner. The shrimp were tough from being overcooked, and the crabmeat stuffing tasted fishy as opposed to a typically more delicate flavor of fresh crab. Served with French... More

Elijah's is a family favorite for us...we originally went because of its use in Dawson's Creek but now we eat there almost every time we visit the area! Delicious food, great service, and killer views of the water and riverwalk (even in the winter/cooler months they offer outside seating with a heated cover so you still get the atmosphere!). The...

Perfect place for lunch by the riverwalk. The surroundings are gorgeous enough for a fine dining experience, yet comfortable and relaxing enough to enjoy in your khaki and flip flops. Our food, seafood, was delicious, fresh and filling! It is a bit pricey, but you get atmosphere and great food with the perfect place to enjoy the view.
