Three of us had the herb goat cheese and bacon stuffed oysters, enough said! Local brews, wine and river views, priceless!

This restaurant has a large covered porch and a large patio with umbrella tables as well as indoor seating. It is right on the Cape Fear River with a beautiful view. We ordered fish and chips which comes with two sides. Our portions were large and good. The asparagus was steamed and almost raw but the rest of the meal... More

We dined here twice last weekend! Friday night we had delicious burgers--I loved their burger buns. They also bring nice breads to the table (cornbread and rolls). Saturday night we had seafood. It was all very good, and service was efficient. We ate both meals outside by the Riverwalk and enjoyed phenomenal sunsets. Saturday night we had a 20-minute wait... More

My wife and I stumbled across this gem when we were visiting Wilmington NC. We were very impressed by the restaurant and its staff very friendly. When we travel we usually never repeat a restaurant because we want to see what the area has to offer but this was so good that we did go back a second time! It... More

They serve the fish... More

Stopped in for some drinks and appetizers and had a great time. Our waitress Jamie was very friendly and everything tasted excellent. Outside deck overlooking the river is an added bonus.

This place is amazing. It's downtown with a gorgeous walk to get to the restaurant. The food is amazing and you can stare out the windows or sit outside to enjoy the sunshine and get to see the view of downtown Wilmington. Definitely put it on your places to go list.

Beautiful outdoor seating on the river in Wilmington. Food is good with lots of options. Bar inside has lots of seating and bartender was pleasant. Been here twice and both times enjoyed the experience.

Elijah's is one of our favorite go-to restaurants. The food and service is consistently good; my husband loves the buffalo shrimp with fries and slaw and I rarely deviate from the grilled tuna sandwich. The crab dip is awesome to start and the chocolate delice is a great finish. Except in the absolute coldest of winter, the outside seating area... More

My wife and I stop by here on a Saturday evening for a drink and was able to it outside and notice a lovely sunset taking place. After a few drinks we decided to have dinner, the waitress was outstanding and offer us a menu and mentioned a few choices for us. The food was outstanding and the service just... More
