Innovations Restaurant is one of several restaurants that are found within the Hilton Wilmington Riverside – one of the largest hotels along the downtown waterfront, and a popular venue for large special events, weddings, and conferences. Innovations Restaurant is one of the newest additions to the on-site restaurant scene, and boasts an extensive and an appropriately innovative menu that’s loaded with contemporary American classics.

Hotel guests and early birds will want to swing by for the big breakfast buffet, which is served in an open dining area, and which is distinguished for its sheer variety of a.m. classics, like biscuits and gravy, breakfast potatoes, and seasonal fresh fruit. Lunch and dinner patrons can order from the menu, which features soups, salads, steaks, seafood selections, and special chef creations. The menu is small – just one page – but varied, with enough classics like ribeye steaks, and enough unique creations like a salmon with crab and mushroom ragout, to appease any traditional or more creative palette. Open for both guests staying at the Riverside as well as visitors strolling along the waterfront, Innovations is a unique choice for diners who crave a traditional breakfast, lunch, or dinner with a slight twist of creativity, and without veering too far away from their home away from home.
