We only had time to stop by for an adult drink so we can't rate the food. The servers were very friendly and prompt. The atmosphere is comfortable and roomy. Sort of reminds me of a large Appleby except with lots of outside seating areas....More

By far the best tenders in Wilmington. The mushrooms and both cuts of fries are also delicious. They give you your money's worth and fill your plate. If you are wanting a good salad, try the deb or chicken salad. It is really good.

We always go to Rucker Johns when we are visiting Wilmington. However, last week we got the rib eye steaks and they were awful. It wasn't bad because of the way it was cooked; it was bad because there was more fat on the plate...More

Nice service. The food is average. You want to plan to have an early dinner because the place gets filled-up quickly.

I got Crystal Coast Chicken with squash & zucchini and a salad. The homemade dressing is delicious and we got croissants on the side. They are the best!
