A wide selection of food for many tastes, even the younger group. The house salad and wonderful homemade dressings , dishes from pork chops, chicken, seafood, burgers and of course pasta. Our tummies were full with take home boxes. Price excellent. Will be back again soon!

Cresent and honey butter are fabulous. Ribeye sandwich was hard to eat as a sandwich, more of an open face sandwich. Bun could not handle the juiciness if the delicious burger. Very nice atmosphere and great service.

You can dine inside or outside under the palm covered patio. I find the food good but others I know just rave about how great the food is. Clearly taste is subjective. I prefer this location for lunch as it can be quite crowded in the evenings which speaks to its popularity.

I visited Wilmington in 2013 and went to this restaurant. Our visit on 8/14/2015 was just as good. This is by far one on the best values in the Wilmington area. Food and service were great for our dinner meal. Will come back again.

We were there on Sunday afternoon (August 16, 2015) with my wife's cousin and her husband. They are 'regulars' there as they were greeted by everyone from the greeter and wait staff to the manager. The food was good and plentiful with good presentation. My wife had the scallops off the appetizer menu and they were excellent. I had the... More
