Featuring a wonderfully extensive menu, with a host of global influences, patrons can try a variety of worldly cuisine without ever leaving the heart of Wilmington.

Each menu has its own unique appeal, with fun dishes that are inspired by Mexican, Italian, Latin, Greek, Indian, and even Korean flavors. Lunch and Dinnertime patrons can sample flatbreads topped with prosciutto, brisket, or brie, munch on surf chips with southern or Latin toppings, or dive into a variety of chicken, seafood, beef and vegetarian entrees, like the Mojo Pork, or the Winter Dal stew with lentils and potatoes. There’s also a variety of burgers and sandwiches available for both lunch and dinner diners, as well as salads and al la carte dishes, like tacos and steam buns with soy molasses. The breakfast menu is just as enticing and surprising, with staples like waffles, egg plates, and breakfast sandwiches, as well as more unique items such as the signature scramble breakfast with eye-catching mix-ins, like pulled pork, jalapeño, black bean, and cheddar. Always mouth-wateringly unique, the Blue Surf Café is the place to go to sample the flavors of the world while sticking close to home.

Wilmington Riverfront Park

Wilmington Riverfront Park

Riverfront Park, which encompasses a decent chunk of the popular Downtown Riverwalk, is a scenic region which will lure visitors into pulling up a bench seat, staying a while, and enjoying the miles of Cape Fear River views on the horizon.

Freeman Park

Freeman Park

The northernmost coastal region of Carolina Beach is home to the Freeman Park Recreation Area, a stretch of shoreline that is well known to adventurous, beach-loving 4WD truck owners. Unlike other stretches of the barrier islands off the coast of Wilmington, this park is special because it is completely undeveloped, and allows beach driving to off-roaders who like to cruise along the sand.
