Cape Fear Seafood Company - Monkey Junction
Always a great dinner. One of our families favorites. Noise level is low. Service is always timely. Best part is the food - cooked to order and full of flavor.
The evening was EXCELLENT! The chef’s specials were awesome and the price points were very reasonable. My server catered to my every wish. I’ll most definitely return!!!
Good food and excellent wait staff. Very attentive waitress, seated without waiting.
Food and service was outstanding but the ambiance did not fit.
Cute restaurant. Server was very sweet. Average seafood. Oysters are pre-fried
We made a reservation online, arrived on time, seated quickly, and enjoyed the food and selections very much.
Dined there many times when in the area.. always a great experience!
Love the food and service at our local restaurant!
I took my friend from Chicago and we both thought the food was outstanding especially the mussels in the white sauce. I highly recommend this restaurant.
Cape Fear Seafood is a favorite restaurant....particularly the Monkey Junction location. Peter was our server— very personable and responsive to any need! We enjoyed the crab cake sandwich, oyster basket, and fish sandwich. All were wonderful!
Our go to spot for date night! Staff is super friendly, food and drinks are great.
Always very good
Wild caught salmon was melt in your mouth
Love their green bean side
Wonderful ambience, food is succulent, and great service.
We love eating a Cape Fear Seafood. The food is fantastic each time. Family from the middle of the state love to visit Wilmington. They tell us it's to see our family, but we seem to always eat at Cape Fear Seafood too...
Store front restaurants sometimes concern me but this place is pretty nice once you step in and several of us got specials and they were very good and not too expensive. It is pretty small so I would suggest reservations. It isn't too noisy so you can have good conversations. Wine list not that big but the prices and pours were quite good.
We like Cape Fear Seafood. My wife got the Shrimp and Grits (which she gets very time we go there) and she likes it very much. I had crab cakes which I thought were tasty but I am biased because I think my own crab cakes are the best (I catch my own crabs). This is a nice restaurant, not too crowded or noisy and service is always good.
I took my sister and brother-in-law when they were visiting. It was also my first time here. The food was fabulous and the service was delightful. I would recommend making a reservation especially on the weekend.
Food was excellent. Service was excellent. Portions were adequate (I have a healthy appetite so I can always eat more). Highly recommended!
Cape Fear Seafood Company is ALWAYS great! The food and service are consistently excellent.
Always a wonderful experience dining at Cape Fear Seafood! Food is always consistent and excellent! Love the Shrimp & Grits! Our little hidden gem of a restaurant is now a town favorite!
Small tables. Noisy .. but food is very good. We’re pescatarian and choices are great. They’re unable to remove bacon from soups etc though, which was disappointing. Our waitress gave great recommentaions
Best seafood in Wilmington! Had a wonderful anniversary lunch!
This is generally a good restaurant for seafood so long as you are not seeking traditional fried seafood. I have had and liked the shrimp and grits before. This time my wife and I tried fried shrimp for me and fried oysters for her. They both were poorly prepared. The shrimp was like rubber and the coating was anything but crisp and had an off taste. My wife had the same complaint.
Amazing food. Please go here if you want delicious seafood!
Good food with a nice variety of seafood, good service, moderate prices.
A great seafood restaurant! The Shrimp and Grits is a must.
Met my son and his friend from high school on Friday, August 17th. They arrived early, were seated and ordered an Appetizer of Peel n Eat Shrimp. Lucky for me, there were still a few left when I arrived. I live in the Morehead City area, and eat seafood often. The Shrimp were outstanding, must say best I've had, anywhere. My meal was the Crab Cake plate wit roasted potatoes, my son chose the Shrimp n Grits, his friend had fried oysters. I must tell you there was not one CRUMB left on either plate.
I chose your restaurant and was not disappointed. Will return when in the Wilmington area, and have already recommended you to several of my friends.
We went for my daughter’s 19th birthday dinner.
Our food was delicious and the service was outstanding.
My favorite place to eat in Wilmington and I do not even like seafood. But my family loves it!
Love to see them happy!
I have always loved CFS. Have been going for years. Food is always good, hot. Service is always outstanding as is the ambiance.
The food was quite good, well prepared, and presented. It came out in good time even for a busy Sunday evening. Jason, our server, was attentive without hovering and had a good sense of humor. When I managed to douse myself with red pepper coulis, while trying to cut my asparagus with a knife that was a tad dull, he immediately asked what he could do for me. I didn’t need much (as it was obvious only Spray and Wash could save the day) but he was prepared to offer whatever I needed. The Pom cocktail was refreshing and all of us enjoyed our meals. Shrimp and Grits was declared delicious as well as the Shrimp Tacos. The crab cakes were good without too much breading, just crabmeat. The hush puppies were a surprise when they were slightly sweet and quite delicious. And finally my scallops with risotto and red pepper coulis (the part that I wasn’t wearing) was very good. Tender asparagus is hard to come by in August so I’ll plan better next time! There were meat dishes other than seafood on the menu but I don’t make a habit of going to a restaurant with “seafood” in the name and ordering beef so no idea how it is. All in all a good experience. We will return!
All of the food was delicious, great service and friendly server. Thanks for making our 2 sons birthdays special!
Always terrific! This is our favorite restaurant in Wilmington!
Great food and service!
Have been here before, food is always good. Service was great, our waiter Dan made the dinner even more enjoyable.
this is just a observation, but they need to replace the blinds with maybe the dark screens that can be drawn up or down.
Delicious food and outstanding service
Our go-to restaurant for dinner on our day trips to Wrightsville Beach from Chapel Hill. It's not a short drive from the beach, but it's worth it and easy to get back onto I-40. Consistently excellent food, easy to make reservations. Good variety of food selections for varying tastes and diets. In our four visits the service has been at the very least excellent, a couple of times outstanding (server super helpful, sharp, attentive, efficient and friendly but not annoyingly cheery, singsong-y or intrusive as some who are trying too hard can be).
On vacation in Wilmington and found this restaurant on Open Table. Reviews were really good, so decided to give it a try. The place is in a strip mall, next to a PetSmart and Foot Spa, so first impression was, well, not awesome... but SO glad we went in. It was a little noisy, and tables were small - but the service was very good - and the food was incredible! They had some unique cocktails... lavender lemon drop martini was different and delicious. We had the buffalo shrimp appetizer, I had Shrimp & Grits and hubby had Crab Cakes. For dessert, I had creme brûlée and he had key lime pie. Everything was fresh, delicious, and cooked impeccably. Don’t let the location or the exterior deter you. Go here - you won’t be sorry!
Birthday lunch for my sister. Excellent service and food! Love this place!
We absolutely LOVE Cape Fear Seafood Co.! This has become our favorite seafood restaurant in the Wilmington area.
Food was excellent. Servers are friendly and accommodating. Temperature was a little warm. First experience. Will be back.
