For the location, the balcony seating for couples is perfect. Waterfront view and very private. Meal was very good. We have not been here in over 10 years, and my husband remembers that was more expensive and perhaps better food, but of course time changes memories! For this visit, the prices were great appetizers average around $6, entrees about $20... More

Best kept little secret restaurant in downtown Wilmington. Their food is the best and would have to be my favorite little restaurant in the area. Had the Salmon with lemon and capers. My partner had the chicken parmigiana sandwich with french fries. He is a pretty picky eater and said that the meal was one of his favorites. They hold... More

Stopped here for a drink before dinner. They did not have the makings for the first 2 drinks I ordered. Decided on a glass of wine and was told they only had Merlot available. Looked great from the outside with individual balconies but not worth it .

Balcony seats at sundown offer some of the best views of Cape Fear river at sunset. Order a beer or white wine (skip the opened reds and cocktails) and watch the sunset. Then go get some food somewhere else -- lots of good options nearby.

We ate lunch today. Fried flounder and shrimp. Very good service and the food was super. Due to street construction they were almost deserted at noon.

The restaurant was relatively quiet since it was offseason but did fill up as the afternoon went on. The waitress was very nice as was the entire staff who assisted one guest who is slightly disabled. Food was good however, I would not recommend the fish and chips because the fish was greasy and portion was small. Drinks were good.

We finished up our Parent's Weekend at UNC Wilmington taking our son and a friend at Cape Fear Community College to lunch. They had good service and nice food. We saw photos of where we were sitting under water during Matthew We hope they are still there. I would go again when in town.

The restaurant was quiet when we visited - the kids' chicken finger meal was good, and the burgers we had were very good. We'll be back

We all enjoyed our food and drinks. The staff really went out of their way to serve us. My husband has a shellfish allergy and they paid special attention to the restrictions that brings. We sat inside which has a limited outside view. Outside seating wasn't available for a party of 4. Portions a very good sized. We all had... More
