We saw this restaurant late one evening with the private dining balconies on the second floor and stopped to make reservations for the next evening. The best thing about this restaurant was the experience of sitting out on the small private balcony having dinner and...More

We went here for lunch. We both had the salmon BLT which was excellent. The location is good and wish we could have gotten a seat upstairs on the balconies but they were full. Service was good although a tad slow but that goes with...More

We dined upstairs in one of the balconies. A beautiful view of the river. I had the pulled pork sandwich and my husband panko crusted chicken with pasta. We both enjoyed our dinners.

:) I don't generally have great opinions about downtown Wilmington restaurants. I like the George, Saigon Bistro and Pilot House. Everything else has struck me as tourist trappy and bar focused (i.e. Burbon Street). I was totally sure that this place was going to be...More

Well, first of all, what restaurant waits until noon to open? And will not permit a patron to sit on the veranda for 10 min to enjoy the view? Possibly buy a drink? Weird. Hmm. A waitress attempting to impress by not writing down selections....More

The rating is not so much for the food as it is for the great and accommodating staff plus the ambience of the balcony seating. The food was not bad but in the middle versus a five star restaurant but we had a fantastic evening...More
