We love the pet friendly spot and great view but today couldn't get wait service so I asked for someone....Jordon stepped up and fully delivered. He brought us Kir Royales PDQ and great service for crab legs and shrimp wrap. Get the Mac and cheese side. Usually slow service so be prepared but settle in and enjoy the riverfront view.... More

While visiting our home in Wilmington, NC some friends took us to The George for dinner. It was a pleasant dinner and the food was enjoyable, but I wasn't blown away by the seafood or the choices. My husband had the fried seafood platter which was plentiful with shrimp that were quite large. along with scallops and fish fillets. I... More

We stopped along the Riverwalk into The George after a Trolley tour for a drink and shrimp cocktail. The wait staff was friendly and recommended a Barracuda cocktail when I asked for a suggestion for a sweeter cocktail. We also ordered a couple of shrimp cocktail. Well, the drink was bland and the orange slice/cherry skewer were dried out. I... More

We choose this restaurant for its location and were not disappointed. It is directly on the Cape Fear River with open air seating and a splendid view of the setting sun. We did not, however, make the best choices of food, going too heavily on the fried foods, so cannot say we were impressed by the food. There were certainly... More

Made reservations for dinner and immediately sat down once we arrived. Food was great! I got the blackened Mahi and it was delicious. Service was also great and I loved that you could choose to dine indoors or out. The view was beautiful! We were staying at the Hilton and it only took us about 15 minutes to walk here.... More

Great venue, lovely ambiance, excellent greeters, first class service, beautifully prepared meals and reasonable prices. It's all good at George by the Riverside which is well worth a visit if you are in Wilmington

In August, I went to a conference in Wilmington with my husband. We checked out on the last day, then decided to take a walk and have a nice lunch before we drove home ... but we needed to find a place that was pet-friendly. The George on the Riverwalk was perfect! We ate on the lower deck, on the... More

We stopped in for dinner one evening and ate out on the back deck. When our original table was too sunny they let us move to another table no problem. We had the crab and shrimp nachos, sea bass, and mixed grill all of which were great! I would definitely go back again and highly recommend you visit if you... More
