I brought my family in here for lunch. It was right across from the battleship we had just toured. What a wonderful place to stumble upon. Great food, and kid friendly. I wanted shrimp and grits, but it was only on the dinner menu. Our server, Kevin, said he would ask the chef if he would cook it for me... More

We stopped at this place for lunch as we thought the private balconies looked neat. We got one on them on the side facing the water. You get a great view of the water and the battleship. We enjoyed the fish and chips and salmon cake BLT. This restaurant is not to far from public parking which is helpful.

Such a great restaurant! Friendly, prompt service, even though it was packed. The blackened mahi sandwich was damn good. I definitely recommend, and I will be back.

I would just like to say that I read the earlier reviews before coming in and realized for myself it was an incredible experience. The server was Beth she made me feel as if I was a guest at her house. So accommodating with our strange requests and rapid speed for all deliveries. The food was fresh and delicious. The... More

Positive: Did not have a wait time. At one end of the River Walk so convenient for an evening stroll. My Aunt and her Father enjoyed their Shrimp and Grits plates. Negative: My cousin's grilled cheese was burnt and you could taste it. My Caesar Salad with Grilled Chicken was on a tiny plate to where when I went to... More

Why oh why didn't we read the reviews first. We chose the restaurant for the beautiful balcony seating overlooking the Cape Fear River. The restaurant looked busy the night before and the menu looked decent. Our server was polite and friendly so we overlooked the fact that we didn't get silverware until we had to ask. Sadly then the food... More

The food was tasty and beautifully presented. Our table of 11 enjoyed a salmon sandwich, chicken salad, spinach ravioli, chicken-bacon-cheddar sandwiches and several other options. Everything tasted delicious. The server was obnoxious from the moment we sat down. It appeared she doesn't enjoy her work or people, so it would be nice if she found a new line of work,... More

We made reservations at Riverboat Landing for the private balcony seating - what a gorgeous view! However, I was disappointed to discover that the food did not match the atmosphere. The arancini appetizer was spectacular, but my chicken gyro was simply not good - no flavor at all. I'd like to try something off the dinner menu, should I return.... More

My wife wanted to try this place for a while because of the terrace seating, so we finally had a chance to go without the kids so I made a reservation for one of the outside tables. When I made the reservation I made sure that the restaurant could accommodate my many food allergens, and I was assured that everything... More
