Perfect dinner

As a couple, we just had a fabulous Valentine's Day dinner. We booked the table on www.opentable.com and were taken to a table for four in the upstairs room. It was perfect, and we were thankful we didn't get seated at the nearby two-tops which were very small. The waiter, Tyler did a terrific... read more

The restaurant is right on the river so you have a great view of the river from some tables. The food was delicious. I had the chicken bacon sandwich and a salad. The citrus vinegarette was awesome. We also shared the potato skins. They were delicious! Great portions of food and very friendly staff. Service was quick and the prices... More

Our last minute day trip to Wilmington culminated in our hungry family walking from a parking garage straight to the waterfront for dinner. It had gotten chilly, we were ready for a good meal -- no one felt like walking around or taking the time to check TripAdvisor for somewhere to eat so we winged it (usually not a good... More

Had a lovely lunch with a friend - we were sat on the outdoor balcony overlooking the River walk. Our server was nice and friendly, our food was delicious, and it was the perfect atmosphere for a girls day. We really enjoyed our experience here and are looking forward to returning!

We had our after wedding celebration at Riverboat Landing on Jan 30, 2015. They were extremely accommodating for our party of 50 friends and family. The Chef worked up a menu specifically for our Mardi Gras themed event with food items inspired by New Orleans (Shrimp, Gumbo, Muffalatta's , even alligator). I could not have been more pleased. Shannon, the... More

We had eaten here several years ago and decided to try it again since it was close to our ultimate destination for the evening. We can't attest to the food since we sat at a table for over 30 minutes without even a glance from a server. No water, no menu, no anything. As we were leaving, we were finally... More

The location is definitely the attraction of this place. It's right on the riverfront in the heart of downtown Wilmington. On the second floor, you have the option to sit on the balcony overlooking the river of the adjacent street. It's the perfect place for a date! The food really depends on how refined your palette is but it's still... More

Relaxed lunch on a Saturday! Laura gave great service, very attentive. Great appetizers and salad. The lava cake was sublime withe the house made whip cream. Not sure how they do it but have never had whipped cream that was sooooo good.

I've been to the Riverboat Landing several times. For a fun lunch, a wedding reception and a business dinner. I was greeted with friendly staff and good food each time. Clean bathrooms. I love the balcony outdoor dinning that provides a grand view to the Cape Fear River, the North Carolina Battleship and the most beautiful sunsets Wilmington, NC offers.... More

While visiting a nearby town, it was recommended to me, by fmily, that I give this restaurant a try. The restaurant offers private seating on your own 2nd floor terrace overlooking the tidal river. I am sure this would have been awesome, but it was to chilly for us to enjoy such. We were greeted and seated immediately by a... More
