Crow Hill closes


DOWNTOWN WILMINGTON, NC (GREATER WILMINGTON BUSINESS JOURNAL) -- As Caffe Phoenix prepares for its July 31 closing, the restaurant that took over the 9 Front St. space Caffe Phoenix originally filled served its last meal Sunday.

Crow Hill moved into the former Caffe Phoenix location in summer 2010, when Phoenix headed to the downtown corner of Front and Princess streets.

The owner blamed a poor economy for the closing, which was announced to staff Sunday night.

Crow Hill

I don't understand this! I thought their food was excellent and we always got the nicest servers. We even tried to go in the last weekend and were turned away because we didn't have a reservation.

Crow Hill was a good

Crow Hill was a good restaurant. Sad to hear that they couldn't stick it out just a little longer.

Blame it on the economy

I'd blame it on mediocre food, snobby waiters and an inability to provide customers decent food at an affordable price... $7 for deviled eggs. $9 for green beans. $16 for shrimp & grits. And, of course, their famous $10 hamburger. Like the story said, guess they weren't willing to dumb down the menu any more...

It's a shame that you feel

It's a shame that you feel that way. I always had a great time at Crow Hill, enjoyed the food and the service. I'm glad that I came away with a better taste in my mouth and I'm sad that they are gone.

Agreed. My wife and I dined there at least a half dozen times and were always treated nicely. Servers were friendly, food was always consistent. Yes we also had been turned away on a few visits because they were full and we couldn't wait an hour. Sorry to hear they closed.
Several other local eateries are equally or more pricey with less of a value.
