The food is delicious and the location is just too cool. It's a little hideaway and the inside is cozy.

Paddy's Hollow is located in the Cotton Exchange in the historic district. The bartenders and wait staff are very hospitable, and help make this pub a wonderful place for drinks or dinner. The menu offers a great selection of food and beverages.

Located just outside the cotton exchange - it is good food- never crowded. They have outside seating in a garden setting- inside bar area and also inside dining. We have been there many times and ordered something different each time and it was delicious. They close early -9:30 pm on weekends but the food is great.

Stopped here for dinner with my wife. The restaurant is located below road level and has a real pub atmosphere, dark wood and exposed brick walls. Our waitress was excellent. We each had salads, mine had shrimp and hers has steak. We assumed that we would be hungry after the salads since they were both only 8-9 bucks. For that... More

Tucked away in the old Cotton Exchange building, closes at 9p so. Stopped in for beer as we started our pub crawl of Wilmington, nice chat with MEG our barmaid who shared some tips for our adventure. Pub style menu, dinners being served look and smelled great. I would dine here next time.

Our group ate here for lunch. The food was good but nothing spectacular. I thought it was a little over priced too. The staff was very friendly and pleasant. I did however love the decor and vibe of the place. Worth going to at least once.

The interior and the bar is very nice. Lots of beautiful wood giving a warm comfy pub atmosphere. Staff was very attentive, while the menu offered nice seafood pub type food! We will definitely come again!
