This is a great place in Wilmington to have lunch or dinner. The seafood is scrumptious but my favorite is the Fillet! The creamy risotto is delicious. We have really never had a bad meal here. During the summer or on weekends I would recommend reservations as it tends to get busy with locals. It's particularly nice to sit in... More

My first time at this restaurant and it was delicious. I got the chef's special of the day which was red snapper. It is a bit pricey but worth every penny for fresh seafood.

Enjoyed the entree (red snapper) emensely, the appetizer and soup were loaded with salt though and we could have done without those. They tried to sit us in the bar area even though we had a reservation and there were open tables. That was a bit odd but wasnt a huge deal. Overall the service was very good and the... More

This was our first tine here. Absolutely delicious!! We had the crab bisque & crab dip, which were too salty (the reason for 4 & not 5 stars). I had the shrimp & grits, the best I've ever had. The sauce was to die for. My boyfriend has the red snapper blackened with mango salsa, cooked to perfection. We will... More

I know now why they got the #3 rating for Wilmington. The food was great, the service awesome, by Ashley, and the sanitation rating was 95%. The meal was $32.00 and some change but it was worth it. The restroom was very clean. We had the Oyster bucket, Fish and chips, clam chowder, and ice tea. The only negative was... More

Don't be fooled by the strip mall location. The inside is lovely and the food is delicious! The staff was exceptional and attentive. The spicy Shrimp is yumm-o. It is not as spicy as Bang Bang shrimp and the sauce seems to be lighter. My husband had the broiled seafood platter and the scallops were thick and succulent. I had... More

Wonderful food, wonderful staff, I highly recommend this place, The crab dip was as good as I've ever eaten . All our meals were wonderful. Really really good food. The place is located in a shopping strip, you won 't see it unless you are looking for it. This is now my #1 restaurant for wonderful food and wonderful service... More
