A group of us recently went to Paddy's in hopes of high spirits, authentic food and drink, and good Irish service.
We're still looking.
The location is good, at least for walking to from our hotel. Waitress messed up several drink orders, didn't know what a 1/2 and 1/2 was, and they started packing up the place around us, well short of their closing time. We were made to feel unwelcome and were ready to leave anyways due to the overall experience.
If you have no Irish expectations, you may have a better time.

We went here late on a Saturday evening. I know that it was a busy time, but I felt that service could have been better.
The food was good.

Cozy place to spend some time away from the Riverwalk in the Cotton Exchange, Had a late lunch of ribs, fries and cole slaw.....fantastic! Our waiter, Rob, was awesome - professional, funny and sociable. Everyone in our group was pleased with their meals. Loved the menu as it had something for everyone. Nice drink menu also and a big bar area. Would definitely eat there again.

Took a ride up the coast from Myrtle Beach. Only takes about 50 minutes. Enjoyed visiting Wrightsville Beach and the Wilmington downtown waterfront area. Had been years since we had been there. Not may people during the day on Monday and it was a tad chilly and windy. Stopped by Paddy's for a small bite to eat and some brewskies. Enjoyed their version of buffalo shrimp and our friends enjoyed a huge portion of nachos. The bartender was very friendly and stayed on top of our service. Food was hot and came out within about 10 minutes after ordering. Several tables were taken for lunch while we were sitting at the bar. The menu looked great with some authentic Irish food and the food looked good when it past by us. We just did not want that much to eat and wanted a pubstyle atmosphere.

While visiting Wilmington for a work project, a colleague highly recommended Paddy’s. We loved the convenient location by the Riverfront but that was only the beginning. We were greeted warmly by Rob who turned out to be our EXCELLENT waiter as well. The atmosphere is relaxed and friendly and there’s a wide variety of great beers. We tried the Guinness French Onion soup which was topped with both Swiss and provolone and delicious! The Caesar salad was very good but we wished they had anchovies to top it off. The Buffalo Shrimp topped with blue cheese crumbles was something new to us and had a good zing to it! Thank you Rob for a great experience, we’ll be back to see you!!!!
