Service very personable and our lunch (2 Po Boy sandwiches and crab cake sandwich) was really good. Seafood fresh, bread fresh and side dishes were really good - not an afterthought. Right on the water so this one is a winner.

We went for dinner one day and lunch another while on a business trip. My partner had the crab legs and said they were the best she has ever had! I was also impressed with the tuna appetizer! The service was good and the view was great! The only item I had that didn't live out to my expectations was... More

Views are great. Food meh. Service mediocre. Pecan crusted grouper was inedible, fishy, not cooked through. The risotto was one blob of dryness. The mixed grill was mixed...shrimp & scallops ok but the lobster tail too tough to chew. All tables were given bread but ours. All food lacking the most basic of seasoning...salt. If you are any bit of... More

It has been a while since I've been to The George for dinner. We chose it because we wanted to enjoy the view outdoors, looking out on the Cape Fear River, with the bridge in one direction and the battleship in the other direction. Our server, Matthew, was excellent. All four of us were very happy with our meals. The... More

While traveling through Wilmington, we decided to go through the downtown area for the first time July 17, 2014, and have lunch. We asked a local where to go for lunch and he directed us to the waterfront area where there are several restaurants. The first one we stopped at during our walk on the dock was The George. The...

We loved the views while eating dinner. We ate on the upper patio. The hostess and our waiter were very friendly. We had a fussy, tired little boy and our server was very kind and got him smiling again. I had the bacon encrusted scallops with risotto and asparagus. It was delicious and cooked perfectly. My husband got the seafood... More

The George has such a great location right on the Riverwalk. Too bad the food is so mediocre. This is the second time I have been there and ordered just a meager salad. How can you kill a salad? They can. The greens were wilted. The salad contained strawberries, they were soggy, overall, it was awful. So was the rest... More

We went for an early (6pm) dinner after a boat ride. We first requested to be seated right on the water. The hostess gladly accommodated our request. After 10 minutes we had not seen a server. The sun started to set and the shade disappeared. We asked the hostess if we could move up a level. Again the hostess gladly... More
