Nice and Relaxing lunch

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

We were fooled by the Trip Adviser ranking on the door. The service was satisfactory and even the appetizers were okay but the main dishes were lousy, just barely edible. Even the clam chowder, which had some nice seafood in it, was ruined by a gluey base. Seriously I've had stuff from a can that was better. There must be... More

My boyfriend and I wanted to go on a nice date and thought that The Riverboat Landing would be a nice place to go. Unfortunately we were not treated as respectable customers, maybe because of our age and lack of alcoholic drinks, regardless, we will not be returning. Tyler our waiter seemed nice, but our drinks stayed half full, and... More

Our first trip to Wilmington and chose the Riverboat Landing for lunch. Place filled up on a cold day when not too many people were on the river walk, a good sign. 6 people in the party and everyone was satisfied with the food and restaurant. Clam chowder was a bit salty was the only complaint. Grilled cheese w/ added... More

When we went today ...I said I didn't care if the food was horrible ...I just wanted to sit at one of the outside tables....We ate at one of the outside balcony tables....beautiful views of the river on your own private balcony!!!!!!...

This place is really unique. It reminded us of New Orleans We had lunch on a little balcony for two overlooking the river. My wife and I shared their Riverboat salad which was comprised of different greens, mandarin oranges, glazed pecans, blue cheese, cranberries and a light vinaigrette dressing. It was fantastic. We also shared their crab melt on an... More

My wife & I had bypassed this restaurant several times, thinking it may be too pricey. Decided to try it for lunch yesterday and we were happy with this choice! We asked for the balcony seating which has an unbelievable view of the street & river. Along with the warm day & nice breeze you couldn't ask for anything more. Our... More
