For fine cuisine that benefits from an overall “Farm to Table” philosophy, visitors can head over to Henry’s. Boasting a vintage warm interior with a long bar and an accompanying collection of booths and tables, and a commercially central locale along Independence Blvd., Henry’s is a convenient destination for a perfect mix of casual and fine dining cuisine.

Henry’s serves up brunch, lunch and dinner, and each menu features a range of options that are predominantly inspired by the restaurant’s southern and coastal locale. Lunchtime visitors can dive into farm-style entrees, like hanger steak, rotisserie chicken and dirty gravy, or Hank’s Mom’s Meatloaf, or feast on two-handed sandwiches like the Heritage Farms BLT, the open-face ribeye sandwich, or the Wilmingtonian Burger with Southern pimento cheese, Duke’s mayo, lettuce, fried green tomato and bacon. For dinnertime entrees, try the seafaring dishes like the lump crab cakes, the flounder platter, or the buttermilk fried jumbo shrimp, or go for a locally sourced farm dish like the hearty pot roast or stuffed pork loin. There’s also a delectable collection of salads and starters for something lighter, as well as a full “bar book” with a nice range of beers, wines and cocktails. Slightly elevated but with a down-home flair, Henry’s is a fine addition to Wilmington’s growing farm to table movement.

Wrightsville Beach Vacation Rentals

Wrightsville Beach Vacation Rentals

While Wrightsville Beach has a collection of hotels and motels, the primary type of accommodations in this region are vacation rentals. There are literally hundreds of vacation rentals in the town of Wrightsville Beach, which are scattered throughout the landscape and are found along the oceanfront, soundfront, and in between waterfront regions in the interior section of the island. Because of the sheer geography of this skinny barrier island, guests in vacation rentals will never be far from the town’s top attractions, which include the local beaches, the waterfront boasting, fishing, and paddling scenes, and the variety of shops and restaurants that are found throughout the area.
