Can't really think of anything catchy to say...

We picked this place for their vegetarian options, which were pretty good, and of course the view. We had 2 different entries, but they were both a little on the bland side. Kind of expected to be wowed given the price range/style of the restaurant, but they weren't horrible or anything. Just... read more

This is a nice spot to regroup after touring the town and USS North Carolina - right on the waterfront, there's a nice view to enjoy, sunsets too. Lots of seafood items to choose from, and classy decor both indoors and outdoors. There's free parking in the open air lot across the street if you get a pass for it.... More

My husband and I went to The George for dinner before seeing "Chicago" at Thalian Hall. The view from the porch is great but we chose to eat inside and was seated at a window with the same view. Our service was good with our waiter being very attentive. We had the crab nochos and our main course was the... More

Went here to celebrate the reinstatement of UNCW track and field. It was crowded as a tall ship was coming through. Got seated right away and waitress took our drink orders. The food was good. Wide variety at the table. Grouper, steak, chicken and crab nachos. Everyone swore by the crab nachos. Grouper was a bit dry but tasty. The... More

The menu at The George had so many excellent options for lunch, Including vegan and gluten free options. The waitstaff was polite and efficient. Everything was freshly prepared. We enjoyed the appetizer special, fried green tomatoes with fresh mozzarella cheese! I would definitely come back the next time we visit Wilmington.

First, the location and terasse are awesome! But, the service was sooo bad, took forever to get our food (2 young kids with us, waited for an hour). Really expensive for the quantity/quality of the food. Waitress was one of the worst i ve had in my whole life! Cant recommend this restaurant!

Brunch items good until 3 pm. I had a crab cake Benedict. It was delicious but needed more sauce. I hate they took fried green tomatoes off the menu, as well as their pork sandwich. :/ but everything is still great there! Waitress was kind of in a frenzy but we understood.

An excellent location in historic Wilmington with one of the best sunset views while dinning!! You cannot go wrong eating or just having a drink at the George with a wide variety on their menu and excellent atmosphere. Walk the boardwalk after dinner and enjoy the beauty along the Cape Fear River.

We were exploring the riverwalk and came across this place and decided to give it a try. (You can enter from the waterside) The food was great and so was my daiquiri! We had a burger, the French dip (very good!) and the kids macaroni and cheese. Outside is definitely the place to sit if you can. Interesting art on... More
