Buzz’s Roost is a fun little spot in the heart of Downtown Wilmington that is known for its solid sandwiches, seafood, and plenty of good times. With a nice long interior bar that boasts a full row or TVs, and a cool outdoor patio that’s a popular hang-out on warm summer nights, this little bar and restaurant promises plenty of eats and entertainment for patrons of all tastes.

Buzz’s Roost boasts a casual dining atmosphere and menu, which features a host of appetizers, sandwiches, steaks, and seafood platters. Visitors who are saddling up to the bar for a Sunday afternoon football game or a late-night snack will want to peruse the long list of snack-sized bites, which includes seafood specialties like oysters, crab balls, and seared ahi tuna, solid pub fare like nachos and ribs, and wings with a half dozen sauce selections. Hungrier guests can dive into big burgers and dogs, fresh and hearty salads, seafood steamer platers, big dinners, and “Roost Favorites” like Monterey Chicken, Cajun Shrimp and Chicken Pasta, and Salmon Rockefeller. With plenty of options, (especially for seafood fans), and a casual but fun atmosphere for the after-hours crowd, Buzz’s Roost is a lesser-known but nevertheless distinguished food and drink destination in the historic downtown region.
