Wilmington/Wrightsville Beach recs?

I will be in WB foir a couple of days in early September...looing for a moderately priced dinner restaurant that has a nice atmosphere. South Beach Grill is too casual, Deluxe is too expensive. Any suggestions for somewhere in between those two extremes? Caffe Phoenix? Others? Thanks!

    1. Marc's on Market comes to mind. It's a very pleasant interior, white tablecloths, wait staff in black, excellent food but very reasonably priced.

      Brasserie de Soleil might also be a good option. It's in Lumina Station toward the beach. Good French Bistro fare very nice decor and I don't think it's as expensive as Deluxe

        I have never been disappointed at Zooi in the Forum on Military Cut Off. Brasserie has never really impressed me. Savannahs on Wrightsville Beach has really improved with their new chef. Probably the best food in town. Nice feel to the place.

          Brasserie hasn't impressed me either. We like Circa much better.

        1. Have you tried Caprice downtown? Their food is great and the prices are more reasonable than Deluxe. Also, try Catch downtown for lunch.
