“Great place, great service, great food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2013 via mobile

We stayed at the Hampton Inn , asked for a good place where to eat and they recommended this place.
Food was excellent, service was even better and price....may be half of what we normally pay in a city like Miami or New York.
Only one problem beyond the restaurant control, cab services in Wilmington run until 9 pm and it wasnt easy to get back to the hotel, we were able to get back because of the driver who didnt have any problem to take us to the hotel at 9:05!!
If you come to Wilmington, don't miss General Denver!

“Good food & brew”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 28, 2013

I've eaten and drank here several times with the most recent being connected with an overnight stay in the hotel. The food is always good and the draft beer selection, though not huge, is better than most and there is usually something interesting available. Friendly folks on both sides of the bar.

“Great Burger!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 2, 2013 via mobile

Love this little pub! Went with some friends while visiting them. We sat in the bar area, which I recommend. The wait staff was great. Any server who walked by checked on us, even if it wasn't our server. Everyone in our group loved the burgers! If you are in Wilmington eat here!

“So much potential”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 29, 2012 via mobile

On December 28, we happened to be in Wilmington and thought we would try this restaurant. We told the hostess we would take first available. Looking back, we should have waited for the pub. The more formal restaurant has so much potential. It needs window treatments, wall hangings, etc. to soak up the terrible acoustics in the room. Although a child was sitting on the other side of the room, we heard his "truck sounds" for a good hour. Extremely annoying! Not sure whether to blame this on the room or the poor parenting. Either way, this set the tone for a lack luster experience. Although they forgot my spinach salad, my chicken dish and cinnamon apples were delicious. My husband ordered fish and chips. They looked like they were straight out of the Mrs. Paul's box. He said it tasted that way too. They never refilled my water glass so I drank my husband's. My suggestion is to eat in the pub and be extremely selective in what you order.

“Quaint, Welcoming, With Wonderful Food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2012

I've eaten at this restaurant/pub twice now and have had an amazing meal both times, as have those I've dined here with. Clinton County is blessed to have the chef! Everything that comes out of the kitchen is amazing. The General Denver is a historic inn with plenty of ambiance and character. Wait staff is efficient and attentive as well as friendly, especially in the pub area. Friendly 'hometown' feel with charm, wonderful food, and good service. You can't go wrong!
