Have eaten at Elijah's several times and the food has always been pretty solid, however tonight was a bit of a disappointment. The burger was well done instead of the requested medium, the fries were cold, and the service was okay...I think they may be resting on their repeat clientele laurels instead of keeping their quality and service really on...

We were out for a nice walk along the riverfront, and stopped at this eatery for lunch. A really nice day and eating outside, it was great. I had the oyster po-boy, and my companion had the small plate of shrimp and grits. The sandwich was good, but the shrimp plate was awesome! Fully recommend it. Enjoy.

After having read about this top seafood restaurant in the Wilmington area, we decided to enjoy a sunset dinner on the river. The location is great but the service was slow and the food was average. Maybe it would have been better during their summer tourist season but I am not sure we'll give it a second try. MAYBE if... More

Nice dining room. Had stuffed flounder. Way over priced for what I received. It was dry and overlooked. Nothing special. Had much better meals while in town at a lot lower price in other restaurants with better atmospheres.

I came here on a warm day in November by accident! My family and I sat outdoors on the deck and had a light lunch. The food was delicious and fresh and the server was very efficient and pleasant. I look forward to being in town again to dine here and perhaps try dinner!

First let me say our server Ariale was delightful and I felt sorry for her that she has to deliver such disappointing food. The mahi was dry and flavorless in the fish tacos; the Caesar salad was drowning in dressing--virtually inedible, the shrimp bread was bland and mushy, and the crab dip had clearly gone bad a day or two...

The special for the night was flounder with crab and caper lemon butter sauce. Our server, who was awesome, allowed us to substitute grouper for the flounder. It was out of sight. Asparagus on top was a great compliment and the wild rice was perfect. Apps were nice except for the processed calamari. Every ring should not be the same.... More

Located in downtown Wilmington on the Cape Fear River, Elijah's has seating indoors, in a covered area overlooking the river, and right next to the river on a boardwalk. The view is relaxing and interesting. Our lunch, on the other hand was just OK. The special baked oysters appetizer was excellent. My spouse's fish tacos were, as she described them... More
