We stopped by here late yesterday afternoon for a great bite to eat. The staff are very friendly and we enjoyed their covered deck by the waterfront. They have an assortment of entrees to choose from and we were very pleased with each dish. We will definitely return when we are in the area.

We were visiting downtown Wilmington and decided to try George since it sits right on the water and offers seafood. We have wonderful service. The food is good and the view is fabulous

While vacationing in Wilmington my wife and I decided to dine at the George on the Riverwalk. I have never written a negative review but I had know chose with this one. We were seated quickly but we set for thirty minutes before anyone came and took our order. Needless too say we will never dine there again.

We sat on the outside deck and the weather was beautiful. If not for that, the review would have been lower. We ordered two martini'. One slightly dirty, one very dirty. We had to send them back. I thought the bar tender used vanilla vodka. Our server said she watched him make the new ones and he used much less... More

Love the atmosphere. Outside dining on the river. The tuna was out of this world. We also got the shrimp wrap, but it was too much breading and hot sauce. I like to taste the shrimp, so we go a shrimp appetizer. It was outstanding. Waiter did forget to bring the ranch fries we ordered. I would go back again.... More

Bad service; bland, not good food; over priced. Server did nothing to try to help the messed up orders. We will never go back.

We came here for lunch mainly because it is a pet-friendly restaurant. We were seated on the patio and enjoyed watching the parade of people walking along the sidewalk as well as the lovely river view. The food was average at best, but the location makes this place worth the visit.

Great all around. The food was great. I had mahi-mahi with crawfish etouffee. It was very good and plentiful. A couple others had pork chops and chicken fettuccine, and said they were good too. The service fabulous. The ambiance outside on the Riverfront was great. I would love to go back!

Nice Restaurant downtown Wilmington with variety of fresh fish. Lots of land food also. The lobsters tail was so delicious! The NY strip was very tender! They have seating inside and outside. I picked outside so we could look at the Cape Fear River. The waiter was terrific and very nice. The only negative thing I can say about that... More
