After coming across this restaurant a year earlier and truly enjoying the experience with the unique balcony seating, I wanted to return for a birthday lunch. Upon arriving and being seated, we ordered a couple of drinks and proceeded to review the menu. Nothing looked familiar at all. Evidently the owner has/ had updated the menu and neglected to update... More

After waiting on a Monday afternoon for 30 minutes, we were then informed they were closing because they had no more food. WHAT??? Who does this??? Unbelievable.

Ok to be fair there was just a festival in town and they must have been hit hard but the menu was low on what was left. We got apps, which were really good buffalo cauliflower and mussels. Plus the waiter was extremely nice. Upstairs they have couples dinning on little balconies which looked neat. After trying the apps just... More

My girlfriend and I stumbled in here and ended up replacing a couple who had canceled their reservation for one of the private balconies. It was awesome. The view was great and we got to watch downtown activity while we ate. It was my favorite downtown dinner experience so far in Wilmington. The service from the hostess, to the waitress... More

Holy good eats batman! Visiting the wilimngton azalea festival and made reservations for The Riverboat Landing for 6pm. Our table was ready at 6pm sharp. We started with a few drinks and bruchetta as an appetizer. Excellent start. Daughter and I had their clam chowder soup which was very tasty. For main courses, wife had a burger (which she loved),...

Sat at the bar and was greeted by the staff immediately. Katy, kevin, rachel, Eric, holly & Lukas are all awesome. Had a couple beers and the salmon BLT. (Food is great too) If you have a chance to get a balcony seat, DO IT! One of the best views in town.

For the location, the balcony seating for couples is perfect. Waterfront view and very private. Meal was very good. We have not been here in over 10 years, and my husband remembers that was more expensive and perhaps better food, but of course time changes memories! For this visit, the prices were great appetizers average around $6, entrees about $20... More

Best kept little secret restaurant in downtown Wilmington. Their food is the best and would have to be my favorite little restaurant in the area. Had the Salmon with lemon and capers. My partner had the chicken parmigiana sandwich with french fries. He is a pretty picky eater and said that the meal was one of his favorites. They hold... More

Stopped here for a drink before dinner. They did not have the makings for the first 2 drinks I ordered. Decided on a glass of wine and was told they only had Merlot available. Looked great from the outside with individual balconies but not worth it .
