We are going to take a break from recipe of thew week and offer you our opinion on local restaurants that we have visited.
The Wilmington Area Restaurant Guide is based on the first-hand experience of the C. W. Worth House Innkeepers, Margi & Doug Erickson, as well as feedback from guests at the inn. Wilmington has excellent restaurants, which are heavily patronized by the locals as well as visitors. Recommendations cover a wide variety of restaurants in downtown Wilmington; some are a short drive from downtown and the Eastwood Drive and Wrightsville Beach area restaurants including eateries on the Intracoastal Waterway and beaches. During certain times of the year an establishment may be closed on Sunday and/or Monday evenings and in some cases the restaurants serve dinner but not lunch on weekends or holidays. Enjoy, and please give us feedback. This weeks pick is a favorite of both locals and visitors to the Cape Fear region.
