Special dinner out in/near Wilmington, NC

There will be 9 of us (aunts, cousins - an all-girl weekend) and we'd love to have dinner at someplace elegant but not stuffy, with the best food available. Not really picky about the type of cuisine, just looking for a lovely night out with excellent food.
Conversely, I'd love to know of the best down-home, North Carolina BBQ place near Wilmington. Maybe that IS the best food around :)
Thanks in advance!

  1. PortLand Grill, Catch, Caprice, Circa 1922 would all be good choices for your dinner. Unfortunately, there isn't any great bbq in Wilmington. Flip's is probably the best of a mediocre lot.

      It appears Flip's will be closing soon, before reopening in a new location next year:
