“Great lunch spot”
Reviewed 13 May 2014

Good service and our table was by a window so we had a good view. Had I not been working we would have eaten outside.
Food was great also.

“Good Food & a Great View”
Reviewed 11 May 2014

My wife and I along with her two sisters and brother and their spouses and friend from NJ had a great lunch at Elijah's this past weekend. It was a family get-together after one of our nieces got married.

The food was great, and the service along with the beautiful view of the Cape Fear River made this a memorable lunch for all of our family.

“Decent food; strangely slow service”
Reviewed 9 May 2014

Even though we were seated by the hostess for lunch (as opposed to just stealthily occupying a table), it took a while for any of the wait staff to notice that we existed. Once that happened, our server was quite responsive. The food was decent, but not something I would come back for. We did enjoy sitting on the covered patio and looking at the river and the people passing by.

Excellent hot crab dip, crab cake sandwiches, and flounder! The staff are friendly. Its very relaxing to sit on the porch and look at the river.

“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.
