Don't Let This Secret Out!

We have lived in Wilmington for almost a year and heard that Jerry's was one of the best restaurants in the area. We finally got around to it and prepared ourselves for a great dinner on the night before Valentine's Day (we avoid eating out on the actual day). We made a reservation and arrived on time at 8:15PM. We... More

We went to Jerry's for Valentine's Day. Owner Jerry Rouse, Kathy and the rest of the staff make every customer feel special the moment that they enter the restaurant. We had the roast oysters Rockefeller and brie with winter fruit chutney for appetizers. For the main courses my husband had the grilled beef tournedos with blue cheese spinach and steak... More

I was skeptical when I read so many positive reviews of this restaurant. Could it really be that good. Having now eaten there, I can indeed say it was. Our great experience started the moment we walked in the door. We were greeted warmly and led to a nice table. We had a wonderful server, Mark, who was very attentive... More

Love to eat dinner here, but it is pricey. Food is always exceptional and we have never been disappointed. For a special night, this is the place to go. Small so reservations in season are smart, but we have just walked in many times. Service has always been great. Food is fresh, and variety has been good. Easy to miss... More

We've dined at Jerry's a number of times since moving here, and it must rank as one of the best, if not the best, in the Wilmington area. It is very small, so reservations, particularly on weekends, is a must. Their wine list is adequate and their corkage fee is merely $15. Always on the menu is chateaubriand for one,... More

Some of the worst attitude I have ever experienced. Left before food and will never return. Friends say the place has been going downhill for a while.

Save this restaurant for a special occasion as it is pricey but worth every penny. Requires reservations due to the limited seating but the food is beyond amazing!

Jerry's does not look like much on the outside but as the old saying goes, it is what's inside that counts. Jerry's hits all three-food, service, and wine.

Hesitant to even post a review for fear that I won't be able to get a reservation!! This is, hands down, the best food in the area. Perfect service, crowded but not too, and just super all around. You know when the bread arrives that you are in for a treat. Long time customer. Love the food, staff and ambience.
