A Great find! A must try! We stayed at the Marriott across the street so nice to just walk over. Wow! Glad we did ! A beautiful restaurant nicely decorated. Our waitress Samantha was so nice so helpful she explained menu and helped us pick out the shrimp curry, tuna poke tacos one of the BEST tuna Dishes we ever had. A must try . The bloody Mary and old fashion drinks were very good. We also enjoyed the bread pudding dessert 🧡 At the end of our meal we meet Grace she stayed and talked to us for several minutes about the restaurant and town . What a great experience. Will recommend to our friends. Will be back ❤️ thank you for making our stay to wilmington even better .

Sooooooo good. Such a weird mix of cuisines and foods but the flavors were outstanding. We ordered waaay too much food but it was awesome getting to share so many different plates! Cocktails & dessert were equally as good. We did ask for the salad with the chicken on the side, and this was missed. It wasn’t a big deal though. Server was very helpful and friendly. Atmosphere was alright, definitely come for the food and drink.

My boyfriend and I ate here for the first time tonight and it was really fantastic. We shared the Cajun gator bites, I had the shrimp and grit tacos and he had the rumcow burger. It was all great. We recommend.
