The interior and the bar is very nice. Lots of beautiful wood giving a warm comfy pub atmosphere. Staff was very attentive, while the menu offered nice seafood pub type food! We will definitely come again!

Quiet, rustic which is good for a pub. Food is good for a lunch. Friendly wait-staff. Lunch served fairly quick. Convienent to downtown.

Went for a bite after the boat show. Cold beer. Sat inside and enjoyed the jalapeño burger. Fries could have been cooked a bit longer. Salads looked good.

We ate outside even though it was 90 - there was a nice breeze. The crab dip was excellent and we had the Caribbean tacos- oh so good. Service was excellent even though we were the only ones outside. Their specials are great. We ate inside the last time and prefer the outside- quieter.

This place is very good. I had a glitch at first. My salad had knats in it. I returned it and they made me a grilled chicken meal with vegetables. It was so good. They comped my meal because of the previous problem. The server was excellent. I will definitely be returning.

We ate lunch at Paddy's Hollow. We each had a salad, mine with grilled chicken and my husband's with steak tips. The quality of the chicken and steak was above-average for a pub. The service was excellent.

Visiting Wilmington on a family vacation we wanted to find a place that was original not a chain, well Paddy's was a great find! Love the pub atmosphere and decor. Everything was fantastic from the food to the service. I even expressed my disappointment that they didn't have a Ruben sandwich on the menu but the waitress assured me it... More

Hosted a family lunch here last weekend. We ordered lots of appetizers, drinks and a few sandwiches off the menu. Everything was excellent! The food and drinks were great, restaurant and restrooms were clean and the wait staff was on point! There is an outdoor seating area but it was too hot to eat outside so we stayed indoors. The...

First time in Wilmington. Are here based on a friend's recommendation. Such a neat atmosphere. Flatbread, steak and shrimp were all delicious. If you are looking for a place with lots of history, this is the place!! Great service!!
