I had heard so many good things about this restaurant but I was quite disappointed. The waiter was very nice and apologetic but we waited one hour 1/2 before we got our food. We asked for the salmon to be medium rear and it was...More

A friend recommended Brent’s Bistro for dinner. We went early to accommodate some friends’ schedule. Service was good, drinks and wine were good and the food was very good. It’s a relaxed atmosphere and pleasant setting. It’s a little slower pace than some other Wrightsville...More

Excellent food and service! The pork chop is absolutely fantastic, as is the prime filet mignon. Good wine selection. Don't get the crab dip. You will not be able to stop eating it. Really! Highly recommended!

This restaurant is that one that you don't expect much from as it is located next to a Subway and has a former drive through lane that has been made into a patio. When you walk inside you notice a nice interior, friendly service and...More
