An outstanding restaurant on the waterfront of the Cape Fear River. Located in the heart of the Historic Downtown District, this restaurant provided excellent food and service, along with picturesque views. lots of other restaurants and bars in the surrounding area. I recommend requesting a balcony table for even more enjoyment.

Nothing special. Service was not good. I had a salad and it was delicious. My husband and children were disappointed in their meals. Prices were good.

My fiance and I visited here a few days ago. The ambience was lovely and staff very sweet. The fish and chips were really delish and the salad with blue cheese anf glazed walnuts (forgot the name) was also very good. I got the grilled chicken to go on top but I did not like the seasoning. Maybe next time... More

Located on the river in the historic area of Wilmington, Riverwalk has a wonderful location along the Cape Fear River. In the evening, you can have your own table in a window of the restaurant overlooking the river. It's very romantic. Unfortunately, the location isn't worthy of the menu that's served. The menu would be great for a sports bar... More

Our party of 10 ate dinner here Friday night 7/3. We had an 8:00 reservation but didn't get seated until about 8:45. The female bartender had the speed of a sloth and teh personally to match. The dining area is dark with not a whole lot of ambiance. The menu is limited. The chowder was good along with the crab... More

Celebrated 41st anniversary on private balcony. Not a seafood eater normally but had Shrimp & Grits. It was great, made me appreciate fresh shrimp done right. Wife's steak was ok. View overlooking river was wonderful and privacy was really unique. Staff was attentive but not intrusive. Had bottle of wine with dinner. Thought price was very modest for whole check.... More

We came in off the extremely crowded street, hot and thirsty on the 4th of July and were absolutely amazed with how great the service was. It was obviously crazy busy, but Jenna, our waitress, had a fantastic cheerful spirit and wonderful manners. The food was delicious, we were seated right away, and had a fabulous view of the water.... More

We sat on one of the balconies outside overlooking the river and had a great meal. It was a belated 37th anniversary for us and we had a great time. The food was good, the staff was friendly and we just totally enjoyed ourselves. Good food, good wine, good beer, friendly staff, great location. We will be back.
