We found ourselves in Wilmington for my birthday and since it was my choice I chose a Perennial favorite. We had the ahi tuna appetizer, shrimp cocktail, arugula salad and jambalaya. Everything was delicious.

The food, service and atmosphere are always spot on...my only issue is with the high (tin?) ceilings. It tends to get noisy in there...they could make the sails more like baffles.

Large selection of raw oysters which changes depending on season. Good service although the menu is not inexpensive. Good place to have lunch if you don't want to fight the crowds!
