The George Restaurant is a Plus for Dinner

Yes, we had to wait in line for an outside table overlooking the river. And, yes, it was extremely busy. And, yes, of course, we were very hungry. Nonetheless, the hostess was polite & the wait wasn't too bad or very long.... After all, the river view is very nice indeed! Once seated our... read more

Similar place as Elijahs. The allure is that it is on the riverwalk. If this place was out in a normal area I don't think it would have survived. The wait times are long, service is slow, food is sub par. Nice place to enjoy a beer outside by the river in the afternoon.

Waitress said she was going to get water and then came back to get our drink orders. Kinda odd in my book. You see nicely dressed staff and the menu and it seems to be a little more upscale, until they bring your drinks in plastic Pepsi cup that looks like it came from a pizza parlor. I ordered the...

The service and food were disappointing but the most disappointing was the martini's. I was really looking forward to a good dirty martini and was not given that by far. I had the sea bass served with a pile of mushy rice and a sauce of some sort on top of the rice that no one could decide what it... More

Very nice menu, which included vegetarian and vegan options. Food presentation was quite nice. The Key Lime prime was delicious. Service was attentive and pleasant. It was nice eating next to the water.

Like any restaurant that sits on a location such as The George does on the river you can expect to pay a few dollars more. However the food portion was such a good size we actually were able to get another meal out of the leftovers we brought home. Waiter was very good and attentive and managed not to come... More

Had a really enjoyable dinner at The George. The views from the dining deck are spectacular. The restaurant sits on the Wilmington Riverwalk hence the views. The food was very good, ambiance wonderful, service was excellent. I had a French Dip Roast Beef Sandwich which was to die for. My wife ordered a Nacho salad with Crab and Shrimp added.Excellent...

Service...okay..Food is okay and overpriced, probably because it was close to the water. We were not too impressed. I ordered the chicken penne pasta with vodka sauce, which did not have much flavor at all and my husband ordered the shrimp wrap and fries ($14.00!!). It was nice to sit close to the water, but other than that, would probably... More
