Port Land Grille is becoming one of Wilmington’s favorite destinations for delicious steaks and refined entrees in a warm and elegant atmosphere. Convenient for visitors staying in both Wilmington and Wrightsville Beach, and boasting a broad menu with “from the port,” “from the land,” and “from the grille” selections, patrons can feast on creative cuisine that satisfies exactly what they’re craving.

The menu begins with a wide range of snacks and sharable plates, as well as “not your ordinary salads.” In this starting section, diners can whet an appetite with homemade pimento cheese dip, crispy spring rolls, and steak tartare, among other elevated and unique small plates. From there, the choices keep getting more difficult, with Port Land Grille’s seafaring and land entrée options. For seafood, diners can sample the fresh flounder, swordfish loin, Mahi Mahi, or Carolina grouper, which can be prepared in an array of different ways. For carnivores, Port Land Grille offers up a fine selection of steaks, including rib eyes and Angus beef NY strips, as well as some more unusual mains like antelope tenderloin and “sugar and spice” duck. Always delicious, and just a little bit unusual, Port Land Grille will satisfy both a refined and a ravenous appetite.

Wrightsville Beach Museum of History

The small but well-stocked Wrightsville Beach Museum of History is a charming little attraction that may not take very long to explore, but nevertheless presents a complete and fascinating portrait of this surprisingly long-standing beach town.

Airlie Gardens

Airlie Gardens

Arlie Gardens is home to a stunning collection of natural gardens and eye-catching artworks which continually impresses visitors to the Wilmington area. Established in 1901, and originally used as a private garden for the wealthy Pembroke family, the garden has since been transformed into a public attraction that’s dotted with thousands of camellias, magnolias, wisteria, azaleas, and other southern blooms that thrive in the warm coastal climate. The azaleas are arguably the star of the show, as there are more than 100,000 red, white, and magenta hued-azaleas to admire.
