There’s nothing like enjoying a stunning waterfront view, and Elijah’s has a prime location along the Cape Fear River on the edge of Wilmington’s historic downtown. Featuring both indoor and seasonal outdoor tables, this little eatery will charm visitors with the natural setting, and will entice patrons to linger with a seafood-heavy but all-encompassing menu.

Open for lunch and dinner, the menus at Elijah’s are divided up into starts, soups & salads, specialties, sandwiches, seafood, pasta, raw bar, entrees, and other fare. It’s a big variety to be sure, and patrons of all palettes are guaranteed to find a dish or two that grabs their attention. On the lighter side, diners will find options like crab stuffed mushrooms, buffalo shrimp, and Carolina chowder, while hungrier patrons can dive into big platters of crab cakes, fish and chips, or a mixed grill of seafood specialties. There’s also a nice selection of seafood or meat-based sandwiches and burgers, like a crab cake on English mushroom and a barbecue chicken BLT, as well as some Italian inspired specialties, like stuffed chicken Marsala and blackened Mahi on linguine. Able to appease appetites and cravings of all varieties, Elijah’s is a crowd-pleasing destination for a meal with a completely decadent on-the-water view.
