Wilmington's Yelp Ambassador Eryn Roberts is joining us today on WECT News First at Four to break down recommendations from Yelpers.

The below reviews come to us from Roberts:


Catch is local foodie favorite owned and operated by Wilmington native Keith Rhodes. 
Chef Rhodes is a James Beard award nominee and also easily recognizable as a contestant on Top Chef Texas.  
This is perfect place to expand your palate, Rhodes is most known for creative southern flavors with Asian influences using locally sourced seafood. 
Yelper's love this restaurant because it makes them feel like they are actually on the food network with the combination of beautiful presentation and fresh local ingredients. 
Signature dishes include the Angry Lobster and Fire Cracker shrimp appetizer.

Pembroke's Restaurant is seasonally inspired, locally-sourced Southern Cuisine dining experience. 
Here your meal will not only be freshly grown and hand chosen, but you can enjoy supporting local suppliers too! 
Created by the owners of RX Restaurant, the ingredient driven menu changes daily. Yelper's rave about the ambiance of the dining room and impeccable customer service.


Hunter and Laura Tiblier opened Ceviche's almost two years ago. 
After a very successful first year, Ceviche's won 1st place for Best Overall Dish & 1st place for People's Choice at The 2015 Taste of Wrightsville Beach! 
Word of mouth quickly spread, prompting a much-needed renovation for the Panama inspired restaurant. 
Yelper's love the improvements and state this is "the best restaurant by the beach." 
The reviews rave about the excellent customer service and innovative menu. 
Not only does this restaurant use locally sourced produce but most of their kitchen staff including the Executive Chef graduated from New Hanover High School.

The Bridge Tender Restaurant is a local favorite dock & dine destination. 
This seafood and steakhouse is located at the foot of the Wrightsville Beach Drawbridge, Enjoy lunch or dinner with spectacular views of the Intracoastal Waterway featured on the outdoor patio and interior seating. 
This location is prefect for events or a date night out. Yelper's love the food quality and large portions. 
The Bridge Tender menus feature fresh seafood, certified Angus Beef steaks, delicious appetizers, and mouth-watering desserts.
