Food very tasty. View great, service good. Highly recommend this place on the river. Also has a great atmosphere and matches the personality of the surroundings.

You are right on the Cape Fear river and you may see a large ship go by or just a small tour boat. Good people watching. The food was good as well as the service. Restaurant is clean and has a friendly staff.

Nice setting on the Cape Fear River with good service, but the food was awful... friends burger was dry and over cooked, my wife's firecracker wrap was poor and my ceasar w/ salmon was tasteless. I would go for drinks, and maybe appetizers, but not for entrees.

Had to duck in here to get out of the rain. Had a great martini and the crab dip, plenty for 2 people, whatever is the secret ingredient, it works. Had great service, but we were the only 2 at the bar.

Our drinks were empty and the waitress finally stops at the table and she says "How are you doing? All good on your drinks." I had to stop her before she turned to leave and say no we are not all good on our drinks, they are all empty. We waited over an hour to get our food. And when... More

All of the food we tried was excellent! Lobster, crab, scallops, shrimp, etc..... We were able to sit outside and overlook the river and truly enjoyed our experience. The meals are a little pricey but fair, not overly expensive for portion size and atmosphere you are getting. I will definitely return to the George!

The George is a nice restaurant at the Riverwalk in Downtown Wilmington NC. This is a great spot to enjoy a nice meal if you are in this area. There is plenty of seating options inside and out (great views of river). The menu has many seafood options, so if you are in the mood for seafood this is the... More

The service and the setting are 5-star. They provide free parking for 3 hours which is very nice too! The food is not great -- but not bad either. We loved the atmosphere so much that it kind of made up for the lack of greatness in the food. If you are a foodie, avoid this place, you won't be... More

Service is a little variable, but they try hard. Overall good food with a nice variety. A few locally sourced items, but not as many as we would have liked. Decent wine selection. We have only ever sat outside and, with notice, they have accomodated our family of 17 well.
