    Water Works Cafe: Good Service, nice view....

    by tpangelinan Updated Apr 4, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    On a river bank, the view is splendid. The service is usually 4 Star. The food, however was not impressive. My crab cakes were REALLY BAD. Burned, and all bread, no crab. I told the waiter to please take them back, and tell the manager what I think of his bread cakes. Mikes steak was bland, over cooked, and kind of tuff. Did I mention the steak was $30.00? No salad with dinner, shared vegetables and potato, hmmm.
    We were not impressed. They gave me a cup of Seafood Bisque for free, and I was hard pressed to find any seafood in that bisque, however the broth and celery were very comforting at the time. The bread was good....but not good enough to ever bring me back there. It was our third visit, and we have noticed a severe decline in the decor and the food each visit.

    Favorite Dish: Drinks and dessert, if you dare.

    Casablanca Moroccan Restaurant

    by Ewingjr98 Updated Mar 19, 2009

    Casablanca is a wonderful restaurant with exotic food, unique entertainment, and a fun and different atmosphere.

    The dining room is designed like a traditional Arab entertaining room with low couches in square shapes, lots of pillows, and a big square table in the middle of each group of couches. The meal is served family style, so if you have a large group, you can take up one entire table, but if you are a small group you will share with strangers.

    They have great nightly Moroccan dinners that include salad, chicken in filo dough, shish kabobs, couscous, fruit, baklava and mint tea. Grab a piece of the fresh bread and use it to scoop tasty rice and meat into your mouth if you want to look like you've done this kind of thing before.

    During dinner they have belly dancers, live music, and alcohol is available. The fixed price dinner is about $25 per person plus drinks.

    Kahunaville: More than just a restaurant

    by Rhondaj Updated Nov 28, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Kahunaville

    Kahunaville was at the riverfront area long before the shipyard shops, the riverwalk, the Bank One Center, and all the restaurants that have been popping up recently. I don't know how to describe the place: part restaurant, part concert theater, part gaming entertainment. I know the sight of the huge volcano as you drive along I-95 has always been a fascinating sight. Go check the place out!

    CLOSED! RUMOUR HAS IT THAT AS THE RIVERFRONT IS GEARING ITSELF MORE TOWARDS OFFICES AND APARTMENTS, KAHUNAVILLE WAS DEEMED TOO LOUD AND ROWDY FOR THE CHANGING ENVIRONMENT.

    Korean Kahl Bee Restaurant

    by Ewingjr98 Updated Feb 2, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Korean Kahl Bee Restaurant is one of only two Korean restaurant in the entire state of Delaware (the other is Korean Barbecue & Sushi Bar in Newark). Korean Kahl Bee is operated completely by Korean-Americans who speak Korean (and English), have an authentic menu, and really make you feel like you are in Korea. As their name implies, they specialize in Kalbi (pronounced "kahl bee") or grilled short ribs.

    We opted for the bulgogi--grilled marinated beef--which was excellent. The side dishes, in typical Korean fashion, included white rice, Kimchi, Odang, bean sprouts, radishes, and others. We also ordered additional sides of mandu (Korean dumplings) and spicy bean curd soup. Total price was around US $44.

    The meal was excellent and the atmosphere very authentic. I highly recommend Kahl Bee Restaurant to those who want to learn more about Korean culture and to those who have been to Korea and want to bring back fond memories. They had a big crowd of Koreans, so it must be authentic!

    The small shopping plaza that houses this restaurant also has a Korean gift shop and a Korean grocery store.

  • Catherine Rooney's: If You Are Looking For IRISH food, Don't Look Here

    by mariah90 Written Dec 14, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Ok atmosphere, lazy service, food NOT remotely Irish. Giving generic American food ( chicken fingers, hamburgers, regular deli-type sandwiches) twee little names doesn't make them Irish. Plus, we waited for our lunch for 45 minutes while our waitress flitted around the place doing who-knows-what. It was SO disappointing as my husband and I were really looking forward to a nice Irish meal. Oh, well.

    Favorite Dish: None, you can get this food anywhere....

    Catherine Rooney's Irish Pub -- Trolley Square

    by Ewingjr98 Updated Nov 30, 2006

    Though Catherine Rooney's claims to be an Irish Pub, they offer so much more than that. This pub & restaurant is located at the center of Wilmington's Trolley Square and features great food and drink, frequent entertainment, and lots of friendly people. During our visit we both had prime rib ($15.99 Thurs-Sat only) with bread, mixed veggies, and a choice of potatoes. We also had a few beers (Smithwicks $4.50 & Yuengling $3.00) to top off the dinner. As we were finishing our meal in the outdoor dining area, the staff began clearing the other tables to make room for their 70's dance party night...kind of an odd way to end dinner. The inside of the restaurant is huge with private dining areas, a nice bar, and plenty of restaurant seating.

    Iron Hill Brewery

    by Ewingjr98 Updated Nov 30, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    1 more image

    Iron Hill is an upscale brew-pub located along Wilmington's trendy Riverfront area near the outlet shops and Kahunaville restaurant and bar. They have a tasty selection of about 8 beers -- brewed locally of course -- including a great Anvil Ale.

    The food was not quite up to the level of the beer. I had a brick-oven pizza with Italian sausage & fried onions that was tasty, but missing the familiar taste of pizza sauce. One of my friends has pork that was undercooked and pink in the middle. My other friend had short ribs that she said were very good. Pizzas were around $10 while other main courses ran $18-25. Appetizers were $8-10 as well... all on the steep side. Out total bill four four people including beers and 2 appetizers was over $90.

    I did not go up stairs, but it looked like they had another bar with a pool table.

    This is a great place to grab a flavorful beer, but you might be a little disappointed with the expensive food.

    Locals grab lunch here.

    This is a very cute, trendy old fashioned ice cream shop type store. A quiet place to have a secret meeting.

    Favorite Dish: Temptations, Serving lunches, ice cream, candy and full line of Godiva Chocolate. Get a chicken salad sandwich here! If you like ice cream, stop by here and eat with real in town folks.

    Del Rose Cafe: For drinks only! I hear the Bands are good.

    Del Rose Cafe

    Del Rose Cafe

    Trolley Square’s award winning music venue and fine dining.
    Been here a long time, personally I think you have to be pretty drunk to like the food here. Drinks were good though! Some folks love it. Sauce was sour, I never like that. Anti pasta was huge, get it to share. Like cole slaw, it's all chopped up, not my bag at all, Aunt Pat didn't even eat half of it. Crab Spagetti was fishy. Ravioli was OK, Olive Garden is better. Sorry Del Rose, I hear you have great bands, but I would skip it for a meal.

    Dead Presidents Bar and Grill: Good food, busy at Happy Hour

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I see dead people...

    Hip strip, happy hour heaven. Nice booths, Friday night is very noisy, can't hear your date noisy. We did like the food, service was pretty good. Mike had Nachos and they were OK. I might go back, but not for a serious meal. Just a snack and a beverage.

    Iron Hill jBrewery: Great American Style Food, Iron Hill Brewery

    by tpangelinan Written Mar 4, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    On the newly revitalized river front...

    With slogans like..."Our beer snobs can beat up your wine snobs" you know right away this is a real brewery. Good food, get a booth. Prepare to wait, as is a Wilmington Happy Hour Hot Spot. I find the food interesting, fresh and reasonably priced.

    Favorite Dish: Seafood Bisque...very good, $6.50 a bowl and very filling. Here's something different, a soup sampler-Chicken Gumbo, Roasted Carrot and Seafood Bisque.
    Shrimp Tempura, lo mein noodle salad, toasted sesame ginger sauce, and wasabi mayo for $10.95.
    Old fashioned oatmeal cake with vanilla ice cream $5.95
    Iron Hill Root Beer Float $3.95
    Creme Brule $5.95

    Walters Steak House: Food is pretty good, expensive, and slow service

    by tpangelinan Written Mar 4, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Walter's Steak House

    The food is pricy. We have eaten here six or seven times. Ever since our favorite waiter Rob left, it's just not the same. The filet with the white lumb crab meat on top is good, but at $36.00, it should be good. Make a reservation if you go, and have an appletini, apple pucker and grey goose, but have it at the bar. Set aside lots and lots of time to have dinner, as it is super slow, and can take three or four hours to get your complete dinner here from appetizers to dessert. The Constantinou family is famous for beef here in Wilmington, so the food is excellent. Not for the faint of wallet.
    M-Th 5-10pm F-Sa 5-11pm Su 4-10pm
    Reservations are Recommended.

    Favorite Dish: ANNAPOLIS HOT CRAB DIP
    fresh crab meat and cream sauce served with water crackers
    SEAFOOD APPETIZER BAR : Sunday, Monday, & Thursday only
    Caviar, Steamed Shrimp, Clams Casino, Mussels Marinara
    Compliments of Walter's with your dinner.
    All entrees include fresh baked bread and butter, tossed salad,
    and choice of potato, stuffed potato, steak fries or rice.

    The Green Room at The Hotel Dupont: My number one pick for Delaware Cuisine

    by tpangelinan Written Mar 4, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Breakfast is almost a white glove event

    Valet Parking, Men...Jacket required at all times, Ladies, no jeans or sneakers. Reservations are a must, book early as they sell out of space quick. The service, atmosphere and dining are second to none in the state of Delaware. Come break bread with the who's who in Wilmington. They have all kinds of packages, check out their web page.

    Favorite Dish: My favorite meals here are Sunday Brunch, $29.00 per person and Valentines Package, around $150.00 per couple. Chocolate Fondue is to die for!!!

    Named after their Irish grandmothers....ahh how can you not love that? Family, history, devotion, it has it all in an Irish Pub, Trendy way. Irish Pubs are a local thing, lots of Irish folks in this state.

    Favorite Dish: They have lots of good food, try the nachos and an apple martini!
