  • Flaming Amy's Burrito Barn   6 years 34 weeks ago

    I agree with the last reviewer. My family and I went in to see what all the hype was about and all we got was some American Mexican food that wasn't cooked very well. If I want Mexican, I'll go to San Felipe or another authentic Mex restaurant (that serves excellent food!). Our food was tasteless and I was shocked that this was what everyone had said was a great place to go eat. Now, the one positive thing was their excellent homemade salsa, but that's about it.

  • Dockside Restaurant & Marina   6 years 36 weeks ago

    I agree, what a disappointment. We have been going to this place for years. We went last night and for 10.00 my salad was so small I could have put the entire contents in the palm of my hand. We had a male waiter from New York, who practically threw our plates on the table. We had 5 in our party and we were seated at a table for 4 the the host was also rude. I have not had such bad serive at any other place in Wilmington. We had to flag someone down every time we needed something. Apparently the waiter thought that he did a better job than we did as he smugged us off with a smile of discuss when we handed him his tip! In my opinion he should not have gotten anything!

    never had a burrito w/ no flavor at all. It tatse like cooked chopmeat with none of the fat drained out and not one bit of spice added to it.dont understand all the hype.

  • Causeway Cafe   6 years 47 weeks ago

    A local prepared to wait in line for breakfast/brunch on the weekends in the summer. Very down home cooking, amazing waffles and pancakes! Usually worth the wait...but I recommend heading in on an "off" day to avoid the ravenous crowd waiting for tables outside!

    While the wait staff is great and the mojitos are fabulous, the food is subpar. Menu and chef changes have ruined a once great place to go.

    Fabulous German food. Like going back to Munich. The Napoleons are to die for. One of my favorite places. Staff is also always willing to try and accomodate large parties.

    I think you got the prices all wrong. This place is very affordable and deleicious. A wrightsville beach classic!

  • Oceanic Restaurant   7 years 5 weeks ago

    I really wish this resteraunt would serve food that was equally as good as its view. Unfortunetly they choose to provide a B- to C+ meal with the worst service I have expereinced in town. I live on the beach, so when friends from out of town came to visit, they wanted to eat at Oceanic. I made the mistake of ordering a bowl of seafood gumbo (everything else is fried and overpriced). I was very sick with food posiing the next two days due to this meal. Like an Alzhiemer's patient, I decided to give the place a second chance about two months ago for brunch (Savannah's has the best brunch in town). Our waiter had no clud what he was doing. He was carrying around two pots of coffee. I asked him to refill my mug, he said that the coffee was "fresh brewed" as he poured. Unfortunetly he was walking around with two empty pots!! about 10 minutes later he showed up with another empty pot! Finally he showed back up and was able to fill up my mug about half way with luke warm coffee.

    I quizzed him on the ingredients used. I asked if the shrimp was fresh and local. He said yes. Being a former fish purveyor I called his bluff. Their shrimp is frozen and imported. I decided on a chicken sandwich (by the time this guy was ready to take our order, brunch was over). Everybodies food came cold and with at least one thing wrong. We asked to speak to this guys manager. 15 minutes went by and no mamager. We decided to walk out. On the way out we saw our waiter cutting up with some other employees. I vow to never go back to that resteraunt and my view on other Atlantic Quest concepts is tarnished.

    I don't eat sushi so I ordered Thai noodles...I've never had Pad Thai that was so sweet before, in fact, all the "spicy" dishes were way too sweet (and I'm not big on really spicy food). I had to send my dish back. I would not go back, the wait, the slow service, and the prices do not justify the mediocrity of the non-sushi dishes. I cannot speak about the sushi.

  • Oceanic Restaurant   7 years 5 weeks ago

    Under $10...not quite...more like $10-20 for dinner. The food is ok but beware if you are watching your weight or cholesterol as the majority of the menu is fried. I recommend the lump crabcakes (either appetizer for 1 or the entree for 2), the crabcakes are large and just like the name says, very lumpy (almost no fillers). In the summer you will want to call ahead to put your name on the list or get a reservation for a big enough party.

  • Dockside Restaurant & Marina   7 years 5 weeks ago

    Having grown up in Wilmington, Dockside had always been a favorite of mine...until the new owners. The food has gone down and the prices up. I was even shocked to find that when we ordered a to-go item we were charged an "environmental fee" because all the boxes are biodegradeable. I commend them on using things other than styrofoam but an enviromental charge is ridiculous...I have not and will not return until there are major changes in food quality!

    I am in love...just had the Lobster Tail special and I can not express how incredible it was.

    Loved the Chocolate Raspberry Lava Cake.

  • The German Cafe   7 years 7 weeks ago

    Great German food at a good price! Check it out next time you're downtown!

  • Yosake Downtown Sushi Lounge   7 years 9 weeks ago

    The special menu is great for an after work "sushi fix". The service can be a bit slow at times but we just plan ahead for it to take a while to eat! It is worth the wait for sure.
