Nice Restaurant downtown Wilmington with variety of fresh fish. Lots of land food also. The lobsters tail was so delicious! The NY strip was very tender! They have seating inside and outside. I picked outside so we could look at the Cape Fear River. The waiter was terrific and very nice. The only negative thing I can say about that... More

Had an excellent business lunch here with 5 others. Service was fast and friendly and my strip steak was perfectly cooked and delicious. Would go back.

Heard about this place and wanted to try it. Definitely a good idea! We had lunch, my husband and I had the same thing. Crab cake sandwich, one of the biggest crab cakes I'd ever seen . It was good but the side of grits were outstanding! The best I'd ever had . Too bad I didn't get shrimp and... More

We saw this restaurant as we were walking down the Riverwalk and its pet friendly. I wanted to have dinner there but my wife suggested trying it for brunch. It took a few minutes to get a table since someone stole our table, they just sat down instead of waiting to be seated like we did. Once we got seat... More

This is one of a handful of riverfront dining spots. My favorite as they offer GF options including pasta. Always great service, food and atmosphere.

My wife and I enjoyed a wonderful after walking along the Riverwalk. The food was good and the setting was brilliant. The George opens an hour earlier than other brunches so you can get an uncrowded table before the crowds. The weather has been unseasonably warm and it felt like a Spring day without the insects. My basic breakfast was... More

I went in for a mid afternoon lunch and the wait staff paid little attention to a me. I felt ignored. Maybe there weren't enough people working to handle the customers they had. The service was just OK, my waiter seemed uninterested in me. Also, the grilled sandwich I ordered was too greasy.

We were in Wilmington visiting and looking around, when we decided to have lunch. Not knowing anything about downtown, we walked around and started looking. There were some cute little bistro's, but I love seafood and that's what I wanted to eat. We decided to walk to the Riverwalk and see what they had available. We could only find one... More
