Pembroke’s is a favorite choice for fine dining in the Mayfaire region of Wilmington. Located just off of Military Cutoff Road, longtime fans declare that Pembroke’s is more of a “dining experience” than a place to go to eat, and with a team of talented chefs at the helm, this reputation shows no signs of fading.
Despite being close to a maze of shopping plazas, Pembroke’s is surprisingly refined with a wide interior dining area that is lightly filled with booths and tables. The menu is sectioned off into a variety of smaller categories, including snacks, sides, small platers, supper, and wood-fired grill items, which initially helps newcomers decide where to start first among the vast, and typically southern-inspired selections. Dishes includes smaller items like the sweet potato soup, the beef tartare, the cured ham, and the Artisan cheese plate, but hungry patrons will want to dive into the main courses. With unique options like the Steak Frites, the blackened NC Snapper, and the Heritage Pork Chop with sweet potato and pumpkin hash, diners will have lots of opportunities to sample southern fare at its best.
Perfect for food fans and romantic evenings out, Pembroke’s will introduce Cape Fear area novices to delicious southern cuisine one mouth-watering dish at a time.
