Hello! I'm new to Wilmington from the northeast and was wondering if anyone knew where to go to watch NFL football games on Sundays (family-friendly) in the area? My apartment can't get DIRECTV, so I won't be able to get the games at home and will have to go out to watch. Does anyone have any suggestions? Thanks!

wilson's, the wild wing cafe, buffalo wild wings, and a bunch of other places. you might like wilson's. they have an arcade area for kids. I have only gone there while babysitting, so I don't know how many games they get. I know that the wild wing cafe in mayfaire is usually packed with people.

Thank you for those suggestions - I will check them out! Wild Wing Cafe is near me, though I haven't been there yet. If you don't mind me asking, what is Wilson's (restaurant? bar?) and where is it located? Thanks so much for your input - I need to find a place by Sunday!

wilson's is actually kind of everything. like I said, they have the arcade section for the kids, they have a restaurant, they have an outdoor tiki bar, and they have an indoor sports bar. I have only been there once and didn't eat or drink, just played some skeeball. they have a website though. they are located right near the wal mart on market st. might not be a bad place to check out, because buffalo wild wings is right there as well. if one sucks, you can go to another. the only concern with wild wing cafe is that it's usually super crowded. who is the team you root for? not too many locals here, so if you have a team you like, you can bet there is a place that caters to them. here is wilson's website.

Wow, thank you, this is great! I checked out the website and I will call to see if they show all NFL games. I am a long-time Giants fan and hope to catch some this season down here when I can't get back north for the games. Thanks again!

Fox and Hound in mayfaire has plenty of big screens. And they had Sunday ticket!!!!!! Went to Hell's Kitchen(downtown) a lot last year for games. I was going through the same dilemma this time last year.

Default welcome to WILLMIWOOD

WELCOME TO WILMINGTON, TO WATCH any sports venue BREAKTIME (By the over pass, behind PURE GOLD) is a must. It has 20 pool tables I can't remember how many TVs but belive me enough. It has a bowling alley on the end a restauran which serves fantasic food until 12am. The people are friendly, I haven't been in a while but it has always been my favorite place. They have a steeler's fan club so if your are not a Steeler's fan don't go when the Steelers play.(just kidding) The there is Wilsons (by Walmart) it has all the video games for kids and bigger kids (MOMS & DADS). It has packages where you can eat and play games fpr a certain price. Wilsons is more kid friendly. ENJOY>>

World of Wings at Mairfaire has closed, but as mentioned Wild Wing Cafe is still open. Buffal oWild Wings also has all the games, but was a real zoo last Sunday.
