Indecisive diners will have a fine time at Circa 1922. This chic tapas bar and restaurant has a prime Downtown Wilmington location, and a wonderfully varied menu that allows patrons to sample veritably every elevated cuisine under the Cape Fear sun.

The interior is classic Downtown Wilmington, with exposed brick walls, wood-beamed ceilings, and a slightly dark setting that’s perfect for both a romantic date night and a semi-casual get together with friends. The menu is equally conducive to all party-sizes and appetites, with a range of hot and cold tapas, cheese and charcuterie, salads, sushi, and larger “Plates” which serve as a full-fledged entrees. Light appetites and sharing patrons will want to munch on the fresh ravioli, the spring rolls, the tuna tartar, or the pork croquettes, while diners with a heartier appetite will want to dine on nice large plates of shrimp and grits, grilled hanger steak, apricot braised beef cheek, or even filet mignon. The menu is amazingly diverse throughout, catering to veritably all cravings, and as a result, can suit diners of all tastes and appetites.

A favorite destination for Wilmington locals, Circa 1922 is a longstanding winner for exceptional Cape Fear cuisine in an invitingly rustic Downtown Wilmington environment.

It's hard to miss the Henrietta III as she cruises along Downtown Wilmingtontowards the open waters of the Cape Fear River. As the largest cruise boat in North Carolina, and the state's only true stern wheel riverboat, the Henrietta III has become a staple of the downtown scene in Wilmington, adding to its historic charm and southern flair for fun.

Bijou Park

Bijou Park

Bijou Park is a hidden gem of a "blink and you'll miss it" attraction in Wilmington, and is a perfect spot for weary shoppers and strollers to find a quiet bench, stretch out their legs, and relax. Located in a rare gap in between downtown buildings on 225 N Front St, the park straddles the heart of Downtown Wilmington and a Riverfront parking area, but the section in between is quiet, peaceful, and buffered from the sound of the downtown traffic by the two tall but historic buildings on either side.
