Sunday Brunch starts at 1130 (not 11) and Mimosas/Bloody Maries aren't served till noon (per NC regressive laws). We had an appetizer brunch of half-and-half (per special request) of Elijah's (with crab dip) and Rockefeller oysters, calamari, and cheviche; I would go back for both the calamari and the cheviche. Prompt, friendly service on the "heated and enclosed patio." Clean... More

Never had a bad experience or bad meal here. We frequent Elijah's when we're in Wilmington. The food is always great and service is good.. Views along the river can be spectacular during sunset. Wait times can be long during summer but they have a bar also..

6 of my friends and I dined at Elijah's for dinner this past week and while they were very busy - the service was outstanding! Everyone's food was delicious and the wait staff was very attentive! Definitely will return!

We enjoyed a January lunch sitting outside in the sunshine. Our waiter was very helpful and gave us good advice on what to choose.

Very beautiful river view and very attractive deck... I had seafood mix grilled and the fish were dry because they were over cooked. The portion was small also. Calamaries were not tasty. And an expensive place for this kind of food and service.

We were guests at a birthday party lunch/brunch. Can't help first impressions. The front desk didn't seem to care if we were there or not. Service and food were adequate, competent, but I had the feeling they were coasting on their attractive setting. Crab Benedict Brunch item was fine, as was their Bloody Mary. This place is OK for an... More

This restaurant has a wonderful outdoor seating on the Riverwalk, which is a lovely way to spend some time. Wait staff were very nice and the food is good and prices are reasonable.
