“Got To Go Back”
Reviewed 7 May 2014

We had 24 oysters with no complaints, my wife had a house salad and I had the calamari and everything was great. The service was very good and everyone was very friendly and sociable, we also had a few drinks and again the service was just great. WE walked in here at just after 5 pm and it was during the week. When we parked we did read all the signs and paid to park using our phone so that was also something good. They have half price oysters on Wednesday between 4 and 6 pm so we will be back but this time we will order 48 oysters.

“Amazing Service”
Reviewed 1 May 2014 via mobile

This is the first time I have had oysters which may be cheating because they had a crab sauce on them. They were lovely, so was the shrimp and the apple pie. What really made this a fantastic experience was the setting and the service. A must for diner in Wilmington.

“Great seafood”
Reviewed 23 April 2014 via mobile

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.

“Very Disappointing”
Reviewed 18 April 2014

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.

“Good food but....”
Reviewed 17 April 2014 via mobile

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.
