The name Ernest & Scott is inspired by the fascinating relationship between writers and bon vivants Ernest Hemingway and F. Scott Fitzgerald, part of which actually took place here in Wilmington. The contrast between Hemingway– the macho, gritty and somewhat disheveled character and Fitzgerald- the stylish refined aristocrat, parallel the available offerings at Ernest & Scott. The concept aims to capture the spirit of both writers.

Whether you seek a local watering hole to saddle up to the bar for a hearty sandwich and a beer, or an elegant location for a magnificent dining event, guests at Ernest & Scott will find a warm, friendly environment where all are welcome.
