Elijah's Casual American Seafood Grill - Wilmington, NC

When in Wilmington, North Carolina visiting the old town, the USS Battleship North Carolina or visiting the amazing Wrightsville Beaches, Elijah's Restaurant on the Cape Fear River is a must visit dining destination.  Elijah's is a Casual American Grill and Oyster Bar.

Here we are with our Auntie J.  We loved this one on the Cape Fear River on Elijah's Deck. Such a fabulous view and ambiance.

We had a most fabulous lunch at Elijah's after a fun day in downtown Wilmington and before the USS North Carolina visit!  So it was perfect to enjoy a great meal mid-day.

We started with the Oysters Elijah and oh my word, they amazed and delighted us. This New Orleans girl was thrilled and felt right at home there.  We even met the Chef who created the recipe.  She was fabulous and very friendly to come out and visit with us.

So yes, I could not resist a good food photo bomb.  This sweet server approved my use of the photo as she was serving ....

Seriously, look at all the delicious goodness.  This is Elijah's.  Great food from Seafood to Salads. 
To Fresh Crab! 

Here is the front entrance off of the cobblestone streets of Wilmington. Love it! 

So fun to have Auntie here!  The Tigers got a great fun photo of us relishing the relaxing luncheon on the water.  We had a pretty hot Summer day so we opted for an inside view of the water.  And A/C!

Now, the Tigers LOVED the Fried Shrimp. :)  Yes, it was vacation so I let them 
eat shrimp! :)

And Chicken Tenders. They were both very pleased and satisfied. 

Auntie J and I also were thrilled to enjoy the chilled Shrimp Salad. It was very well 
done.  Ice cold and crisp and tasty. Perfect for a hot day. 

The Tigers live enjoying their meal. See all of the great food. It is abundant here. 

The Chef came out to meet us!  Sweet!  She was very friendly and she can cook! 

Plus, see Elijah's is fun!  See our little friends at our table. 

My sweet Turtles. 

Here is the enormous outside deck to really take in the Cape Fear River.  Again, it was one 
of our hottest days so the patio was not overly crowded. We hated to leave. 

Thank you Elijah's!  We will be back.  Wilmington we loved your fair city!  Thanks for the great memories.
