Take a break from strolling along the Wilmington Riverwalk and enjoy an impeccable meal with a waterfront view at The George. Featuring vast vistas of the adjacent Cape Fear River, and located in the heart of the downtown area, this brunch, lunch and dinner spot features a world of local and global fare that can appeal to veritably any palette.

All three menus, (brunch, lunch and dinner), are vast and feature a little something different as well as a nice selection of seafood, steak, and pasta favorites. Brunch patrons can sip on mimosas and enjoy decadent plates of Belgian waffles, steak and eggs, or eggs Florentine, while lunchtime visitors will have a nice selection of classic and unique sandwiches and midday entrees like penne a la vodka, and pub-style fish and chips. The dinner menu is just as unique, and includes traditional fare including steaks and fried or grilled seafood platters, as well as more eclectic entrées such as Blackened Alaskan Halibut and Seafood Diablo with a spicy marinara sauce. Regardless of what a diner decides on, the biggest attraction is arguably the view, which can be enjoyed via indoor or seasonal outdoor seating.

An enticing and convenient spot for downtown explorers, The George is a crowd-pleasing destination for water lovers to dive into the Cape Fear cuisine scene.

Burgwin-Wright House Museum and Gardens

Burgwin-Wright House Museum and Gardens

The Burgwin-Wright Museum House may be one of many former Wilmington residences that claim historical significance and a long and storied history, but this home is remarkably beautiful and distinctive in its own right. Built in 1770-1771, the home is one of the top twenty oldest homes in North Carolina, and the oldest museum house in the state. Carefully preserved throughout the centuries, despite natural deterioration, military occupancy, and the Civil War, the Burgwin-Wright house is an enchanting step back in time for Wilmington visitors and residents alike.
