I was curious about the Queen in Wilmington since i frequent World Cafe Live in Philly. I decided to use Kiefer Sutherland as my reason to go there. He was great but this isn't a concert review. We were downstairs and the room is fabulous....More

Another amazing evening. Bob Schneider upstairs. Music, food. Spirits and home before 11pm. If you're in Wilmington, it is a must visit.

We came to Wilmington for a Tribute to Whitney Houston event. The venue was packed, staff cordial and friendly with many great seats on the ground floor as well as up in the balcony . Wonderful time feeling the love on Valentine's weekend!

Saw several shows there- some seated, some standing. When I've eaten there, the food has been good, prices fair and service good. Some standing room shows crowded but not packed. Balcony benches a cool spot to see the show as well.

I've been to a couple of events at World Cafe Live (upstairs and downstairs) in Wilmington, DE. The venue has a lot of potential; but, realistically, it leaves much to be desired. (Fyi--The food isn't very good...eat before you get there.) I do, however, love...More

We have been here a few times for shows. The upstairs venue is smaller and a bit awkwardly set up for shows. Upstairs serves as a dining room and the menu is okay. It would be nice if there were more appetizer options. I like...More

I have been listening and admiring Todd Rundgren and his work since the 70's, and was blown away by the passionate performance of his new music and constant evolution of his art as performed live in Philly. We were privileged to see the show and...More

There is a small parking garage on 5th street. It is located right next to The Queen. The nice thing about that is, if you are attending an event at The Queen you don't pay for parking. I personally have never had an issue... More
