Movie buffs and foodies alike will have a fine time at Hell’s Kitchen, a chic little Downtown Wilmington restaurant that had a guest role in the homegrown TV series, “Dawson’s Creek.” Located just a couple blocks away from the waterfront, this eclectic restaurant is a prime spot for visitors to take a break from the shopping and sightseeing, and just enjoy a cold drink and a little taste of Wilmington’s eclectic dining scene.

Hell’s Kitchen doubles as a late-night spot for a little fun that’s coupled with a quick bite to eat, and the menu is a nice homage to this laid-back and devilishly indulgent cuisine. The appetizer section of the menu alone boasts more than a dozen items, which includes local specialties, like fried grouper fingers, as well as bar staples, like chili and cheese potato skins, beer battered mushrooms, and ultimate nachos with a long list of decadent toppings.

There’s also plenty of sandwiches, famous burgers, seafood like Maryland style-crab cake sandwiches and blackened tuna, and even a wide range of quesadillas. Essentially, whether a patron is gearing up for a night on the town, or just winding down from an evening of debauchery, Hell’s Kitchen can satisfy all wonderfully sinful appetites.
