“Fresh Catch, Beautiful View”
Reviewed August 15, 2013

We travel to Wilmington all the time, and while there are a handful of restaurants with great southern cuisine, none have replaced the old Crooks By the River. The George has been open for about a decade, during which time we dined by nostalgia at Elijah's, Caffe Phoenix and Roy's Riverboat Landing. I am so happy we decided to switch it up this week. The mister had a fabulous grouper with grits, and my mixed grill (shrimp, scallops and local channel-caught Mahi Mahi instead of lobster) with green beans was A.W.E.S.O.M.E! Watching the Henrietta II docking by sunset was icing on the cake! We look forward to our next experience at The George on the Riverwalk!

“ok.”
Reviewed August 11, 2013

The view is great. Most places with a view have below average food but the food here was actually quite good. Service lacked. We asked for modifications on both salad and entree, both of which were forgotten.

“Great view”
Reviewed August 9, 2013 via mobile

Friendly waitstaff. We sat outside overlooking the Cape Fear River. It was hot outside but the fans on the eating patio made it nice to eat outside. Food was good-best crab cake I've ever had!

“Great Views Closes Early”
Reviewed August 4, 2013

Great food, service, and views of the riverfront. Only knock would be that it closes at 9 pm. A great dinner felt rushed because they closed so early.
