GREAT shrimp and grits

We ate outside and had shrimp and grits and corn crab chowder. The shrimp and grits were the best I have eat yet!! Loved the place. Waitress was sweet. The prices are a little high but good food.

Atmosphere here was wonderful, adult beverages delicious, and food tasty, however the service was lacking a bit. When arrived with out a reservation and a party of 8, the hostesses made no attempt to hide her displeasure and nearly refused to get us a table... 😒which I guess she technically never actually got my party "a" table, but two tables...then,...

We were promptly seated (not a busy time - only about 6 others on the patio), between lunch and dinner, and then sat for about 15 minutes without anyone waiting on us. Asked if server could take our order, we were basically ignored, so we left after waiting another 5 minutes or so. As we left I told hostess we... More

Went there last night for dinner. No wait getting table, only 3 other tablets occupied when sat down on the water. After 10 minutes, had to let hostess know no one came to the table. Waitress was good and food okay. Won't make a must eat place again

Excellent service and the crab legs / peel and eat shrimp were very good. The crab cakes were awful (tasted stale and full of filler). I immediately let the server know and she offered another meal, which I declined, but too it off the bill. The restaurant accommodated by substituting veggies on a plate and overall good experience. Just steer... More

After shopping in Wilmington we were needing something quick but yummy as we were going on a boat tour in an hour. We came along this place and was so pleasantly surprised. We were really hot from walking around and was hesitant to eat on the porch but was so glad we gave it a chance. It was very shaded... More

Great food as always!!! The view is spectacular- you are sitting on the cape fear river watching large and small boats travel along. The cape fear memorial bridge is just in the distance as is the North Carolina battleship. The food is amazing a little pricey but worth it I do believe salad should come with all entrees rather than... More

There's spacious seating both inside and out. The service was very good. I had the Shrimp and Grits, which was very salty and I probably wouldn't get again. We also had the nachos which were fantastic. There's a good beer selection. If you're looking for a really nice place right on the water this is worth a visit.

We were in Wilmington for only one night and the valet parkers at the Hilton recommended we go to The George for dinner. So glad we listened to them. We could walk which was fun since our hotel was on the water and so was the restaurant. We sat outside which is sometimes a risk with bugs, but it was... More

We had lunch at The George and were able to sit on the covered porch overlooking the Cape Fear River. Even though it was a hot day, we felt comfortable with the breezes coming off the river. Not only a great view and atmosphere, but the food was excellent! I had the best crab cake sandwich that I've ever eaten!... More
