Originally we were going to go to Front Street Bar and Grill for a quick meal however after hearing that there was an hour and a half wait at 9 pm, we decided to try another restuarant down town. We are certainly glad we did so! The Riverboat Landing was able to seat us in the bar area and we... More

Good restaurant nice staff especially Lina. She was our special server. I say that because we really had a nice private balcony with our own door, made it very intimate and every time Lisa showed up she had to access the door. Food was good the prices are good and the wine good and priced right. Enjoy.

I believe in giving a place a fair shake at earning my business so this past visit was my third. I feel that's more than enough to win me over. Every chef has a bad night or two. Unfortunately, this will be my last visit here unless I hear they have changed chefs. Had the steak which I had to... More

We had lunch here & our family of 5 LOVED it. We each got something different & would highly recommend this place. Great service & my Cubin (1st for me) was tender & juicy. The pasta salad side was great as well.

My husband and I venture to Wilmington quite often and usually always eat dinner at the same place; however, this visit we decided to try something different, so we chose Riverboat Landing. I was excited about eating there and sitting on the balcony, but that was the best part of the experience. The food was average, but not great. I... More

Was traveling with my 16 year old daughter and she wanted shrimp and grits. Plus she loved the small balconies overlooking the water. Great place - amazing shrimp and grits! Wonderful Mahi as well. Must visit!

We were able to sit on one of the private balconies, which give you the best view of the river, riverwalk and Front Street. We started with the gazpacho which was very flavorful and spicy. I had the shrimp and grits which were quite good. My husband had the seared sirloin which he enjoyed as well.

Having visited Wilmington more than a few times over the last four years (daughter attends UNC-W), we have walked by this restaurant (on many occasions) sitting on the corner of Market and Water Streets with its two person balcony tables overlooking the river. For one reason or another, we had never considered eating here and that was a HUGE mistake!... More

We had reasonable expectations due to trip advisor and yelp reviews. We should have clued in when we arrived at the restaurant for our 7:15 reservation 30+ minutes early to find a nearly empty restaurant. We requested a balcony seat and were told we'd have a 20 minute wait. We waited at the bar to order a drink and no... More

This used to be my absolute favorite restaurant in Wilmington so of course I was really looking forward to going back. We did get a balcony table which is a must in my opinion but it was all downhill from there. First of all, they no longer had the pasta dish that I was looking forward too...it was full of... More
