Cresent and honey butter are fabulous. Ribeye sandwich was hard to eat as a sandwich, more of an open face sandwich. Bun could not handle the juiciness if the delicious burger. Very nice atmosphere and great service.

I visited Wilmington in 2013 and went to this restaurant. Our visit on 8/14/2015 was just as good. This is by far one on the best values in the Wilmington area. Food and service were great for our dinner meal. Will come back again.
