Wilmington visitors who are touring the downtown area’s famed Cotton Exchange can whet an appetite for a cold drink, a hearty lunch, or a decadent dinner with a visit to Paddy’s Hollow. Featuring an authentic brick-lined atmosphere that’s perfect for large meals, and a full menu that boasts everything from burgers to pub grub, Paddy’s Hollow is a crowd-pleaser that can cater to all sized-appetites (and especially big ones.)
The menu goes on for multiple pages, and boasts a wide selection of appetizers, salads, sandwiches, seafood, and even pizza-style flat breads. There’s also a nice array of steaks and ribs, pastas, chicken specialties, and combination platters, like steak and shrimp, or ribs, chicken and sausage. Newcomers will have a hard time making a decision, and may want to save plenty of room for a multi-course, and heaping meal. Start with an appetizer, soup, or fresh salad, like the creamy crab bisque with sherry, or the sautéed little neck clams, and top it off with a big sandwich, like the Chipotle Chicken Sub, or an Irish pub specialty, like the Shepard’s Pie or the Guinness Braised Corned Beef. When partnered with a local or imported draft beer, the fare at Paddy’s Hollow will leave every diner stuffed and satisfied.
