Their salads are terrific, especially the ones with the Catch of the Day. We tried both the Salmon and the Mahi-Mahi (both blackened) and its some of the best fish in Wilmington, as amazing as it may sound for such a casual place. So if you have the patience and can stand the noise - enjoy..

Food is perfectly respectable although it's bar food. There are a few healthy options. Volleyball leagues are fun to watch. Very relaxed and very casual.

We eat here often, at least once a week when we go to watch our daughter play volley ball. Food is good, and it is very casual.

Looked for a brewery to have lunch at while we were waiting for our vacation rental to be available. So glad we found this place! Food was good, staff was so friendly, and beer was good. We grabbed a growler of the Orange Blossom to go. They are still working out some kinks but we were really pleased overall. Be... More

While visiting family we had a late lunch today here. Very impressed with my blackened grouper sandwich and my wife loved her blackened Mahi sandwich too. The kids ate all their food and enjoyed watching some volleyball games. We will definitely come back again.

The food was very good especially the barbecue. Carolina style barbeque sauce. However, the service was horrible. Regulars' table were checked often but ours only a few times. They would have gotten a 5 if the service had been better.

We love to stop in when we visit Wilmington. Natalie, Natalie and Scarlet remember us and make us feel so welcome. Pitcher of beer is a great deal and watching volleyball doesn't get any better than that!
