Ted's Fun on the River is Wilmington's premiere listening room and is an official WoodSongs Coffee House.

Come relax on the deck with a glass of wine and watch the sun set on the Cape Fear River.

Enjoy live music 5 nights a week.

Rent a kayak or canoe for a jaunt up and down the Cape Fear River or a bike for a leisurely ride on one of the city's many bike paths.

Consider scheduling a relaxed business meeting with our great coffee and free wifi.

Nestled at the foot of Castle Street, across from the municipal boat ramp at Dram Tree Park, Ted's offers a unique experience for tourists and locals alike. It's off the beaten path on the road less traveled

So, if you're looking for something new and different that feels old and familiar, check us out.  You'll be glad you did.
