I had an amazing blackened shrimp sandwich that was VERY yummy. Washed down with a crisp,fruity sav blanc. Nice young man looked after me but he didn't know the wifi password and couldn't be bothered to ask a co-worker. !! I then informed him so hopefully won't happen again !!

If the weather is warm enough, sit outside on their deck and enjoy a great meal on the Wilmington riverfront.

The George, although a little pricey, has great food, lots of fresh seafood choices and a fantastic location right on the Cape Fear River. Makes for a nice evening out. The wait staff has always been exceptionally friendly and helpful whenever I've been there.

Wonderful lunch on the the river. It was a warm day but the overhead fans made it very comfortable. The food was well prepared and very tasty. Just the right portion for lunch so you did not need to worry about a "to-go container". Service was very attentive. Thoroughly enjoyed the experience!

out by the water and under an awning is a great way to spend time and enjoy a leisurely lunch. Parking is complementary across the street ---> come into t George and get a pass to put in the auto.

Great spot for lunch/brunch, especially with out-of-town guests. The menu has salads, sandwiches and entrees or just some nice appetizers to nosh on. Most of the outside area is covered and they have ceiling fans, which is nice to have during the summer months. I'm a local and have dined here frequently; staff is usually friendly, but sometimes the service... More

We always like to take friends and family to the waterfront. It's a great way to show out of towners what a great place Wilmington is. We usually take our guests to The George. The food is great, it's on the water and has a great view of the waterfront AND its pet friendly. The outer patio you can bring... More

We dined here after touring the battleship. Really good food (most unique calamari appetizer I've had). It is across the river from the ship. The host Shannon was amazing and very informative. The Blackened Grouper Reuben was out of this world amazing. I would go back here again and again for this sandwich! The shrimp and grits looked really good... More

We really enjoyed the food and service at this wonderful restaurant along wilmington's riverfront. Everyone on staff seem to insure that their customers ( i.e. guests) were their no. 1 priority. Although they were very busy, they never effected the service. The Brunch menu was was quite diverse and our food was wonderful.
