One of the best crab cakes I have ever had!!! I live at Wrightsville Beach and I can honestly say that I have eaten crab cakes at a lot of restaurants and I have had none that compared to this restaurant!!!

Each weekend, I receive an email from this restaurant that includes comments by Mary Brandy and the chalkboard specials for the weekend. This past weekend it included three specials that I enjoy, crabcakes, Walleye and Florida Grouper so I asked my wife if she wanted to go to dinner on Saturday and she did not. On Sunday, our daughter called... More

This is a regular date night location as we love the creative seasonal options as well as standards such as sweet potato burrito, house salad, flat breads, pretzel caramel dessert, and those yummy rolls. Good wine and spirits selections too. Not quite as good on a Sunday as nothing is as fresh.

We had lunch there recently and the service was extremely slow and the food was not very good. I had a salmon gyro which comes with tomato, onion and tzatziki sauce but there was so little of the accompaniments that it was basically salmon wrapped in a pita. The fries that accompanied it were inedible because they were so burnt.... More

Went there over Memorial Day weekend. Usually restaurants are not crowded because everybody everybody's gone up north it seems like. When I got there at about 7 p.m. it was packed on the inside and outside. That's a good sign. Local folks know this is one of the best in the area. I Had the Michigan wine spritzer to start....

Diamond Jim Brady's is A consistently great restaurant serving wonderful creative food. Mary and her staff do a great job and really focus on customer service. We've been here several time and ate never disappointed from the wines, craft beers to the menu. It's all superb.

Ordered the Hat Trick, bucket of mussels with chorizo, Scottish salmon, creme brûlée, bread pudding and all were excellent. Mussels were a generous portion. Salmon was plated beautifully with complimentary flavored pairings. Creme brûlée had vanilla bean seeds on bottom. Visit was a bit pricey but it was money well spent. Atmosphere is friendly, welcoming, and upbeat but also offered... More

This isn't my favorite place to eat because of the crowding and noise. Some of the dishes are excellent and some are poor. Also food prep is sometimes careless as I got most of a broken walnut shell in many pieces in my food during my last visit.

Thank Petemcl
