Food is good; service is prompt; price reasonable. Better than a chain like Fridays or Applebees but not a "special" or remarkable place. Croissants are great

Having seen the good reviews on here we decided on a visit as we were staying over the road. Firstly $1.50 for a pint is superb and wasn't a bad pint either, unfortunately everything else was quite overpriced. I ordered a burger and my partner ordered the rib-eye steak. The food itself was actually quite nice but is standard fare... More

Consistently great food! I've only ever one not so hot experience with service and that was when we sat at the bar, and there was no bartender to be seen for a good 15 minutes. (I don't like to over exaggerate, so I literally checked my watch to make sure I wasn't being unrealistic) when she finally did show up,... More

I walked to this from Best Western and I would do it again on my next visit. Everybody there seemed to really care and, for the respectable prices, they put together a great menu and product/service. Not every restaurant can or should be "World-class Five Stars," and this place is an outstanding place without the enormous bill. Next time I'll... More

Clean restaurant, the food and service were awesome. The crab dip appetizer I would highly recommend. Nice meal with a business associate. I will definitely go back when in Wilmington.

We were here for a rehearsal dinner and were able to order what we wanted on the menu. The children enjoyed their foods and our steaks were cooked to our liking. Service was good and staff very pleasant. The locals say to try the fries and the chicken tenders and our children loved them. We enjoyed some nice glasses of... More

We have been to the location in Monkey Junction 3 times now, each time we've gone I've ordered something different and each time I have completely enjoyed my meal. This is one place that we will make a point to stop at each time we are at the beach for a good quality meal at a reasonable price.

The menu has sufficient variety to please most anyone. An ice cold crisp salad & croissant are one of the sides offered with each entrée. My favorite is Island Chicken. My husband often orders pork chops.

We always start our vacation meals here when in Wilmington. Everything I've had here has been very good. The wait staff has always been friendly and the managers have always stopped by to see how our meal was. They have something for everybody on the menu all at a good price as well.

My husband and I had dinner here while on vacation. We were kindly greeted at the hostess stand and taken to a table right away. Our waitress was good at here job and very helpful when we asked about local attractions. It was our first time in the area and she took time to tell us about things to do.... More
