Variety of choices. We had the steak which was excellent, one had a salad and the other one of their large burgers. All good choices. Servers were very attentive and were prompt with refills.

service was good, food was good, their croissants are to die for, order an extra basket. Had prime rib that was a large piece of meat and prepared exactly as I asked. Skip dessert, not worth the price.

Delicious croissants! Excellent salads and delicious dressings. Shrimp and grits is my husband's favorite. The service has been incredible all four times we have been to this location. It is our favorite restaurant in the area so far. The only improvement would be more vegetarian options. Not all vegetarians want to eat salads for every meal. Not all of us... More

This restaurant is located on the other side of town from us so we hadn't visited in awhile , we must frequent more often. I had the rib eye sandwich with cooked apples, both were scrumptious. We will be back.

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
