Clean restaurant, the food and service were awesome. The crab dip appetizer I would highly recommend. Nice meal with a business associate. I will definitely go back when in Wilmington.

We were here for a rehearsal dinner and were able to order what we wanted on the menu. The children enjoyed their foods and our steaks were cooked to our liking. Service was good and staff very pleasant. The locals say to try the fries and the chicken tenders and our children loved them. We enjoyed some nice glasses of... More

We have been to the location in Monkey Junction 3 times now, each time we've gone I've ordered something different and each time I have completely enjoyed my meal. This is one place that we will make a point to stop at each time we are at the beach for a good quality meal at a reasonable price.

The menu has sufficient variety to please most anyone. An ice cold crisp salad & croissant are one of the sides offered with each entrée. My favorite is Island Chicken. My husband often orders pork chops.

We always start our vacation meals here when in Wilmington. Everything I've had here has been very good. The wait staff has always been friendly and the managers have always stopped by to see how our meal was. They have something for everybody on the menu all at a good price as well.

I always order the Santa Fe chicken and love it! The spicy black beans and melted cheese with tangy ranch is so good! I get side salad (good, but pretty simple) and sweet potato fries (yum), but you can order any 2 sides. Only side I do not like is the Mac and cheese. It is bland and reminds me... More

My husband and I frequent this restaurant. When we have out of town guests we also usually bring them here as well. The food and service is consistently good . My husband loves their ribs and I usually choose different items, seafood, salads, and pasta. The only thing I would recommend is that they offer a wet napkin or additional... More

It's kind of hard to tell what the target audience of this place is. That being said, the food is nothing super spectacular, and it's not priced like it either. The food is also not bad either. It's a quick meal with good service and pleasant staff. The menu is diverse enough that anyone can find something they like. Definitely... More

Our group, 16, enjoyed a very nice evening together at Rucker John's and were served by a fantastic staff. Being a large group is a challenge in getting orders in and out, and accurate. This staff did it! The food was stated by most of our group as being superior! Personally, I felt the breaded shrimp was below the standard... More
