Weather was great for eating outside by pier. Food was very good. A bit pricey but I guess it's the norm for fine dining AND waterfront restaurants.

We had a great crab dip appetizer followed by awesome meals, all with a great view of the river. The Ceviche was a hit with me.

This is a great place to sit by the river and have dinner. The food is always good; we have been there multiple times. My only complaint in the past has always been that the staff rarely smiles. This time our waitress was very friendly and full of smiles. That was nice to see, please keep it up! We are... More

Visited with friends. Zanitta was our waitress and she was awesome! She took the time to answer our questions about the menu and beverages (beer that we had not heard of.) The food was wonderful- the right portions for the right price for lunch.

We stopped in there for lunch yesterday around 1:00 PM, the place was fairly crowed but there were plenty of seats available.... More

Right on the Wilmington waterfront this restaurant offers a great setting and a solid, if not spectacular meal. Limited wine and craft brew selection but it seems like they're trying. Friendly and attentive service coupled with the setting made it a great casual lunch stop

Ate at Elijah's and it was just ok.... The restaurant had a funky smell inside and the service was just so so. My wife had a shrimp and clam scampi that was tasty but for what we paid the portion was kinda small. I had Mahi Mahi which was just ok. My kids had the chicken finger, nothing you can... More
