Quite pleased with the seafood selection and preparation. Pretty conventional waterfront restaurant with above average fare. Excellent selection with average wine pairings. Service was first-class and they were attentive to detail. Gets a strong recommendation.

Family get together here while on vacation. Food was excellent. Good service. I ALWAYS come here at least once, whenever in town. The best part is to eat outside on the patio along the river! If the heat bothers you, try to wait for a table under the canopy. I just love eating anywhere out there, along the river. Just... More

Lots of choice. Food was flavored, prepared and presented well. Nice location. Parking nearby. Very casual. Place itself, and front of house team need polish and professionalism. Entrance smelled musky. Greeters lacked personality and pep. Server inattentive. Not terrible, not remarkable.

Restaurant is right on the beautiful Cape Fear River with views of the bridge, the Battleship, and downtown. Very good food and less expensive than the restaurant next door.

My wife and I were in the mood for some seafood the other night and decided to try their raw bar. We were not disappointed. Fresh oysters,clams and shrimp. The service was outstanding. Looking for to our next visit.

I have eaten at Elijah's many times. I lived in Wilmington for 4 years while I went to college. Elijah's is a wonderful place right on the Cape Fear river. We ate out on the deck and enjoyed the wonderful food and view. It is a great place to eat then walk on the River Walk after supper.

Thank ICatchMemories
