2 Market Street Wilmington, NC (910) 763-7227 www.riverboatlanding.com
Located at the foot of Market, on the bank of the Cape Fear River, Riverboat Landing has been around for over 25 years. The building itself is an architectural gem, dating back to 1856, featuring nine two-person private balconies overlooking the Cape Fear. It’s a lover’s destination, to say the least. Restaurant weekers will not only fall for the ambience but the menu, too, as they explore Southern regional cuisine, along with hints of French, Asian and Mediterranean.
