We had a lovely meal here with our son, daughter-in-law and little grandson. The seafood was exceptional and the staff were very courteous. Highly recommended.

Nice spot for lunch. Service was good. Drinks never empty. 12 to 18$ lunch. Portions were good. Nice views. Food was tasty but not memorable. Olive loaf appetizer very good.

We went to a Sunday afternoon theater performance and decided to do dinner by the water afterwards. No reservations were required; outdoor seating was plentiful. The staff were friendly, professional, attentive and the food was great! This place is a definite keeper.

Food was delicious! Salmon sandwhich and calamari were so yummy. Gorgeous view of water and perfectly accessible to riverwalk for a jaunt.

The restaurant is located on the riverfront and the food is great. We went for Sunday brunch and they had a guitarist playing that day.

We stayed in Carolina Beach, 15 miles southeast of Wilmington, NC. We drove 35 minutes into town to Elijah's. We had two excellent meals on the waterfront. For sure worth the drive into town. The service was also excellent. We had the salmon, Carolina oysters,...More
