Seafood in Wilmington

Thread starter #1
I will be In Wilmington next week working for a few days. Any recommendations on a restaurant with great seafood will be appreciated.

Catch, hieronymus, cape fear seafood company, dock street, something fishy
those would be my top picks with Catch being the best. Honestly Wilmington could do better when it comes to good seafood restaurants.

My last visit to hieronymus was just last, not good at all. Your mileage may vary.

I have never had a bad meal or bad service at the Bridge Tender on the water way before you cross the bridge to Wrightsville Beach.
Fish Bites on Carolina Beach Rd is a smaller place that always has a wait to get a table. Eaten there 4-5 times and always had good food and drink.

When in school at UNCW we always ate at Fish House off Airlie Rd. (just before the bridge).

Have been there a few times over the years. I liked it as much as when I used to eat there 25 years ago.
I’ve lived here for almost a quarter decade. Sadly, there’s not really what I’d consider a really great seafood place. Some fairly good ones, yeah but portions are generally small to the high price you pay. The very best place I found in the area was Holland’s Shelter Creek near Burgaw but sadly Florence flooded her out for the last time ...
