We stopped in here for lunch and got a table outside with a nice view. Our waitress was very helpful and the food was amazing. I highly recommend the crab dip (which is the best i have ever had) and the shrimp, bacon & grits.

Came here with my boyfriend to celebrate an anniversary. We ordered the spinach and artichoke dip which had freshly grated cheese on top and pita points. He got the shrimp and grits. I highly recommend it. It was unbelievable. I got the filet mignon and a lump crab cake. They were great as well. For dessert we ordered the pumpkin... More

Great atmosphere and view. Menu is lovely and service pretty friendly. Order the fried alligator for something a little out of the ordinary!

We love The George - great view, great service and best of all, a Vegan *and* GF menu. Anyone who follows a vegan life style knows what a pain going out to eat can be, and it's so nice, nicer than words can say, to have a nice selection to choose from that's not just french fries and salads without...

Went with the holiday visitors for brunch, not great, not bad just meh........... The fixtures and location create an anticipatory effect, the nice pretty Christmas tree, lots of shine and sparkle, and the expectations are brought back down to earth with the cold hard herb biscuit and a bowl of rounded cornered fruit arrives with your brunch item. We had... More

My Husband and I decided to have dinner at this restaurant for our anniversary.based on the recommendation of the front desk staff at the hotel where we stayed. The restaurant staff was very friendly, courteous and professional. The ambience was also good. Unfortunately, I had the mixed seafood grill as my entree and before the night was through I started...

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.
