This place seems to be a local favorite because they were quite busy. Service was very good and servers very friendly. Portions were large and tasty. Desserts were very good. Extensive menu and lots of choices. Would definitely visit again.

We like their pizza and sandwiches. Good value, friendly service. Everyone in family can find something from youngins to grandmom. They make a very decent cheese steak sandwich as well. Been coming here on my visits to Wilmington for many years.
