Elijah's came highly recommended by locals. The Carolina Bucket was fantastic. Clams, Oysters, Shrimp, and sausage were all really good. The service was okay. We would eat here again.

We have eaten at Elijah's many times in the past. It is located right on the Cape Fear River and has a beautiful view. The food this time was very poor. I ordered oysters on the half shell and my wife ordered a mixed salad. The oysters were the smallest I had ever seen, almost non-existent with no plumpness and very little taste. I would have been ashamed to have served such pitiful creatures! My wife's salad was equally as poor - no mixed greens and a salad that was slapped together at the last minute. The choice of dressings was very limited. The only positive was the view and the Guinness. Will probably be a while before I return. Also, beware of the parking restrictions downtown - the signs poorly placed and misleading resulting is a $20 ticket.

The service was outstanding and the food was good. However, we felt it was slightly over priced for what you get and the options available, but again it was good. Although you've probably had similar at a good pub for less. Family of 5---2 adults, kids---3, 4, and 15.

No doubt it's location that attracts its customers here. The views are beautiful. The building is old/historical but the décor is dated. Bar is nice and open. Outdoor space is big. Food is only so so. Great place to go for a sunset dinner with out of town guests.
