Wilmington is overflowing with good, local places to eat. RX restaurant is among them. It's got pretty cool decor, but the food is awesome farm to table southern inspired cuisine. The ham and pimento cheese platter is a great appetizer. The shrimp and grits and chicken breast were both good, but the ice cream sandwich with brown butter cookies was awesome. The breakfast stout they had was also excellent.

Excellent choice in flavors and good food. For once in a restaurant I had great balanced shrimp and grits.

So much to choose from and enjoy

We are long time Wilmingtonians, with a daughter in the big city. While we are generally much more casual diners, when n NYC, we usually try a wide variety of good restaurants. Rx truly reminded me of several of these, but without over-crowded spaces, tables shared with strangers, and vulture-like groups waiting for your table. The food was excellent, adequate amounts, and too my budget, a little pricey for Wilmington. That said, Rx didn’t insult me with absurd prices for tiny quantities. At our table, we had two different chicken dishes, both excellent, and the Pork Belly over grits, also excellent. Truly one of the best meals I’ve had in Wilmington.

I know I am going against the grain but I was under-whelmed. The food didn't wow me, the portions were very small and didn't warrant the price. The atmosphere was nice and the wait staff were great. I am glad others enjoy, but I won't go back.

This is a nice farm to table restaurant in the downtown area but not crowded during the tourist season, so if you’re a tourist, you should go here :)) The food was good and the portions were really large. It doesn’t seem like much from the outside but is very charming on the inside. Plus, there’s parking.
