We came today on a day trip down to the coast. The wait for good was quite long but we were in no rush and enjoyed just sitting with our drinks.

My visit was limited due to being with a large group- but the food was excellent, and the service very friendly. They did a wonderful job for our large party.

My wife and I went for dinner on Valentines Day with several other couples. We ordered the Filet and I must say it was the very best I ever had. Was cooked exactly the way we wanted it.....expensive but worth it.

We are lunch while taking a break from house hunting. We sat outside by the boardwalk. Everything was great and our waitress was nice and friendly. Definitely want to go back.

As a Wilmington resident, this is where I take my family and friends when we go to explore downtown. Nice atmosphere when you sit outside along the river. Food is usually pretty darn good and have always received excellent service.

Had an early dinner, and sat out on the patio. The food was good and service was good as well. Prices were as expected. The view from the patio is gorgeous.
