Wilmington is a total foody town and there are SO many options. That is one of the best parts about living in wilmington is all of the restaurant options. There are so many awesome locations as well, from historic downtown wilmington, wrightsville beach, mayfaire shopping center area, or even right near the school. The cost and convenience varies but most places are pretty reasonable. One diamond in the rough we found while we lived in wilmington is called Indochine, they have amazing pad thai all the ingredients are fresh and the portion size is realistic for what you pay. There are so many great places to eat in wilmington I could go on and on. Just understand there is something for every type of palate for a reasonable price and great location!
