We lucked into finding Hieronymus Seafood Restaurant because the hotel we were staying at recommended that we would like it. They were wrong. We Loved it! We were greeted right away and seated promptly. Our waitress was very attentive and made sure everything possible was done to make our visit truly enjoyable. She succeeded. I chose the fresh trout and... More

Went here a few days ago. This restaurant has been around for over 30 years, nothing fancy but great fresh seafood. Had the steamed clams, salad, alaskan crab legs and fried clams which came with slaw and garlic mashed potatoes. Very fresh and reasonably priced. Service was friendly and professional. Inside decor a little dated. Will definately go back, best... More

Enjoyed a fabulous dinner of fresh seafood. Steamed shrimp are large and plumb. Crab legs perfectly prepared. Oysters (raw) EXCELLENT! Delicious clam chowder. In town visiting UNCW and the front desk at the Marriott Courtyard recommended Hieronymus. Excellent recommendation for fresh, delicious seafood

Read the reviews and they were all good--arrived and the outside was nothing to shout about but we ordered oysters and steamed shrimp and they were some of the best we have had in a long time. Nothing fancy but just good good at a reasonable price with good service. Enjoy

It is some years since I ate in this Wilmington icon; I recall a bad experience shortly after the original owning family sold out around 1998/99. However, I had a hankering for some seafood tonight, Thursday, 10 November 2016 and thought I would give it another try; I'm glad I did. I ordered the grilled seafood platter of flounder and...

Stopped by after recommendations from a colleague and it was great. The menu was small but offered excellent choices - including how you wanted your selection cooked - fried, seared, blackened. Service was good and the meal was delicious.

During a visit to UNCW with our grandson, my husband and I went to this restaurant. It was recommended by a staff member at our hotel. We were extremely pleased with the food and service. It is a family owned business. The seafood is fresh daily. The vegetables come from the family's farm. Both of us had the seafood platter-... More

Been coming here since my son was a senior in high school and visited UNCW. The bar tender remembers us every time we go in (is this a good thing???) . Great food, great atmosphere, our favorite place has always been the outdoor side eating area. We make sure we go to dinner at least once when we are in... More

Came for a birthday celebration. Service from beginning to end was impeccable. Everything ordered came out very timely and perfectly seasoned. Everyone's raw or steamed Stump Sound Oysters were huge and flavorful. She crab soups were smooth, creamy, and filled with crab. This place was awesome!
