Whenever we go to Wilmington this is always our first stop! They have great food, good portion for your money, and excellent service. If you leave hungry it's your own fault.

Great seafood at reasonable prices at off water location. Large portions so share a plate if you have a small appetite. They will accommodate that. Really good food. Easy, simple, casual atmosphere. Our go to place for affordable seafood.

Food was ok for fried seafood. They don't offer many sides. Need more variety and maybe some healthier options. Nice large portions. Staff was very friendly.
