This brightly colored and expansive restaurant along Market Street is an eye-catching destination for seafood fans. Featuring a far-reaching menu of steamed, broiled, grilled and fried seafaring creations, Hieronymus Seafood Restaurant & Oyster Bar has been satisfying big coastal appetites since 1972.

Hieronymus has both dine-in and big catering menus for grand events, and patrons will have a difficult time deciding where to start. A multi-course menu is recommended, due to the sheer number of appetizers, soups and salads available, which range from the classics like clam strips and calamari, to the more unusual like the Oysteronymus - six oysters on the half shell that are baked with crabmeat and spinach. The steamer menu is equally enticing for seafood fans, with specialties like shrimp, clams, oysters, mussels and crab legs, and the entrees and pasta selections are where the wide variety of available seafood really shines. Opt for the fresh catch, which can be prepared a number of ways, including Greek-style, herb grilled, blackened, and nut crusted. There’s also a selection of beef and chicken entrees for non-coastal palettes, as well as a nice lunch menu, kids’ menu, and regularly changing list of desserts. With plenty of ways to enjoy fresh filets and catches, Hieronymus Seafood Restaurant & Oyster Bar will be a favorite destination for Wilmington’s visiting seafood fans.

Cape Fear River

Cape Fear River

While Wilmington visitors will arguably enjoy the best views of the Cape Fear River, this distinctive river actually spreads out throughout most of the coastal and piedmont regions of North Carolina, originating in the town of Haywood, just north of Greensboro, NC, and flowing all the way to the Atlantic Ocean.

Wrightsville Beach Park

Wrightsville Beach Park

The sunny Wrightsville Beach Park, conveniently located in the heart of town, is a fantastic destination for an outdoor adventure that doesn't necessarily entail a trip to the beach. Adjacent to the Wrightsville Beach Parks & Recreation's main facilities, the Wrightsville Beach Arboretum, and plenty of wide open green spaces, this park is a perfect spot for enjoying a little free fun in the sun, without the risk of getting sand in the shoes.
