World Cafe Live at The Queen
Had a good night. Food wasHad a good night. Food was delivered in a timely fashion. The WCL has apparently placed a priority on expediting orders which I believe is new, but a good thing. Our table of five was quite happy5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMWe saw Royal Southern Brotherhood.We saw Royal Southern Brotherhood. The food was great - a good variety of bar food and there were a few BBQ specials that were tasty. The service was very good with friendly, attentive wait staff. I would recommend seeing a concert here if you like live music in an intimate setting. I will definitely come back!5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMHappytohaveGreat place in Wilmington to go and enjoy shows while you sip on a fantastic bottle of wine! The atmosphere is so cozy and can enjoy listening to great music of our choice!! I'm not sure if we would go just to fine there the food is fair! Small proportions!5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMLove the QueenI am so appreciative of what World Cafe Live is doing to establish Wilmington as an excellent concert venue. All the people associated with the Queen are doing a great job to bring in excellent bands and provide an awesome environment to enjoy the music, food, etc.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic food goes w/ great musicThe music and the food share top billing Upstairs at the World Cafe Live at the Queen. The chef has made an art out of craft grilled cheese -- like you've never seen this traditionally homey fare done before. Try the eggplant fries on the side. Not a mediocre item on the menu. Make reservations at least a day in advance (walk ins often have to sit at the bar for the show) and for at least 30 min prior to show to enjoy watching the band set up.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was good, music was FantasticThe energy of the waitstaff was awesome. The house was rockin' and everyone kept up and things ran smoothly. Awesome Wed Blues evening! You Go Queen!5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMBar-b-cue and blues.....I love to see shows here- in the upstairs it's almost always advisable to reserve a table when you buy tickets to the show. . Last night was the free weekly blues jam kicked off by David Bromberg - yes, THE David Bromberg - and featured some of the incredible local talent Wilmington has long been known for. Wilmington native Johnny Neel even stopped by to kick things up a notch- he was in the area on tour. Bar-b-que was prepared this night by a guest chef and was outrageously good- I also ordered dessert from the regular menu, a yummy take on key lime pie. The wait staff really hustles- I've never seen any of them lose their cool or sense of humor. The WCL Queen is my favorite place to have a great meal AND hear the best music ...5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMIt was great! Service a littleIt was great! Service a little slow because of big event downstairs. Food was good, atmosphere great, service very friendly and the band was fantastic! Thanks.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMFriends met us upstairs beforeFriends met us upstairs before a Downstairs show. Great fun watching Upstairs artists do their sound checks. Servers were gracious and attentive without being intrusive. Duck confit was stupendous, fish and chips delicate and delicious. Short but nicely varied wine list, artistically priced. Like they say--the food truly 'rocks'! We'll be back as often as possible4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMHappy hour specials were greatHappy hour specials were great - had a drink and dinner for under $10! Band was entertaining also.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was my first visit toThis was my first visit to The Queen. Although, we had dinner reservations, we ended up just getting Apps at the bar. We had a great experience and I look forward to my second visit real soon....Thanks, Judy4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMVery positive experience.We had a very positive experience dining at the World Cafe Live. The food was overall good and prepared to out liking, came out hot and the waitress did a fine job (Stephanie). Desert menu is a little lacking, coffee was excellant. Liked the ambience and band was good but a little loud. Two people in our group are sensitive to loud noise. Did like the selection of songs.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, lively crowd,Great food, lively crowd, but not overcrowded and great entertainment.
Service was timely, but not rushed. Server was attentive, but not overbearing.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food and great musicGreat food and great music in a wonderful setting.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMWho needs a concert as an excuse!!My husband and I decided to dine here prior to the Renaissance show downstairs on April 12, not knowing, really, what to expect. The food was delicious! My husband ordered the pretzels for an appetizer, which I though was weird, but I soon learned that it was an awesome choice. I ordered the mini baked brie and enjoyed every last bite. We both ordered burgers and they were made to perfection. It was embarrassing making that "yummy sound" throughout our meal, but we didn't care. The service was great, too. I appreciated not being hovered over, but feeling properly served. We can't wait to go back...regardless of having tickets to a concert.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMost fun ive had in a while!!!I was with a very large group of people to see RKVC play and the Queen was so accommodating to all of us. The food was fantastic and the service from Stephanie was phenomenal. Thanks again for an amazing night we all want to come bank for more!4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMWe absolutely love going toWe absolutely love going to the World Cafe Live. The food is outstanding. Service is equally excellent. We have never had a bad meal there. We especially love enjoying the live music - it is one of the best places in Wilmington and very professionally run. I highly recommend using Open Table to make your reservation, and the restaurant goes out of its way to accommodate any special requests. Can't wait to come back.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMTerrific find for live musicThe food was good for a bar and the entertainment they book is really unique. Highly recommended3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMI was surprised that my reservationI was surprised that my reservation was honored because I made it for when I could actually arrive which was 30 minutes after the show started. I was afraid that they wouldn't hold the reservation after the show started but they did and it was an excellent seat for watching the show! Also, our waiter was excellent and very attentive even though there was much activity (dancing, etc.) due to the show.
One request I have is that the hostess inform people when they are being seated that the kitchen closes at a certain time, it will help with expectations. The hostess sat 2 people next to me with menus after I was told the kitchen was closed. They were very disappointed when the waiter told them the kitchen was closed.3/19/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food and service wereThe food and service were wonderful. I traveled a distance that evening for a show, but if I was in the area I would consider stopping just for a meal. I was alone that evening, but it would really be a great place to dine with a friend. The wait staff were all very nice and attentive. I had the pork sandwich and it was delicious.3/19/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding Service. QualityOutstanding Service. Quality Food. Our waiter and entire staff were having fun serving everyone very well! A great atmosphere was created by all. Burning Bridget Cleary and opening act Michelle McCann and Deacon Jon Kmetz created a fabulous evening of entertainment at the World Cafe Live !3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMA place to show offWorld Cafe Live at The Queen is always a treat - whenever we have guests from out of town, this is one of the top places we take them for great food and entertainment.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMThoroughly enjoyed our evening.Thoroughly enjoyed our evening. Having dinner and drinks during a show is a very pleasant experience. We dined downstairs and will be back often.3/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Food,Gd Service, Lousy DrinksI was there with a good friend to see a PLP production by Suite Franchon and we had a fabulous time! The food was great, however it took way too long for us to get our drinks and the drinks were not memorable to say the least. I had the WCL Burger with the sweet potato fries which were both cooked perfectly! I love their menu and haven't had a bad item yet.3/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
