This is an indoor/ outdoor restaurant on the boardwalk next to the river in the historic downtown area of Wilmington. Great tables on the terraces and great service. The menu was nothing special but the food was OK!

Great question! Casual dress is permitted as boating guests are welcome during lunch and dinner service. Many guests dress up more in the evening but nothing special is required. We hope to see you soon!
