One of my favorite spots to grab a bite and a beer has to be Ernest and Scott Taproom. Located on the corner 902 N. Market St, with plenty of outside seating for drinks or dining (also great for people watching if that’s your thing). This American cuisine restaurant has a great food selection and beer menu.
On some nights there’s live entertainment and if you’re around on a Wednesday you can catch Gable Music Ventures Wilmo Wednesday which is open to all ages and is a performance showcase/networking event that happens weekly.
There’s plenty of on the street parking and a newly built parking garage less than a block away. I always find the staff at Ernest and Scott to be the most pleasant and helpful team I’ve encountered in downtown Wilmington.
Now onto the food, I can honestly say I’ve never had a bad meal here, and let me say that their full rack of ribs is definitely a FULL RACK OF RIBS! They have a HUGE selection of beers/wines which is bound to satisfy whether you are a beer aficionado or a casual drinker. The choices are so huge that the drink menu is an entire menu of its own.
I would suggest if you haven’t tried Ernest and Scott Taproom go on a Tuesday where currently they are featuring Happy Hour Prices all day, honestly, you can’t go wrong going there any day of the week as they have special and the vibe is totally awesome.
