We were looking for a place to eat dinner with a view of the riverfront. This was perfect. The pricing was not cheap, but we felt like we received a good amount of food for the money we spent. The service the night we went...More

It seems as though restaurants that know they have a home-run location feel as though they can wow their patrons with the view and skimp on the food and service. This is a classic example, I’m afraid. Food was just simply not prepared well, service...More

Sitting outside under the umbrellas, right on the water, is beautiful day or night. The food is always very good and no matter where else we planned to try, we usually seem to end up here.

Food was luscious- and the view is lovely right on the water. Our server was very theatrical- and friendly- an actor in Wilmington. Close to walk to Wilson Performing Arts Center- less than a mile.

We are a late lunch there and I will not be going back. We had oysters Rockefeller that were uncooked and tasteless. The seafood bisque was lukewarm and tasteless as well. I should have got the fish sticks at Popeyes and saved myself 20 bucks.
