Wilmington’s Premier Restaurateurs Invite You…
Wilmington’s fine dining scene is marked by a distinguishing characteristic: It is dominated by owner-operators. In other words, there is not a chain restaurant in the bunch.
So each spring, when those restaurateurs team to present City Restaurant Week, they view it as a personal invitation. It’s the equivalent of your neighbor inviting you for dinner.

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.
