Lunch time crowd

4 of us went to Rucker Johns about 1230 in the afternoon on a Friday. Only a handful of people were in the restaurant. The service was great my glass of water never got empty while we were there. Food was decently priced, for just one person my bill was $10.50. The food was decent for the price... read more

The ribs used to be our favorite. However the quality has gone down drastically. Not much meat at all. They are no longer "Fall off the bone" and tender as they used to be ...particular at the Emerald Isle restaurant. We try them every year or two just to try again but probably won't again. The staff is always friendly,... More

We are locals (New Bern) and frequent the beach often. We always make Rucker Johns a stop on the way home. Never had a bad meal here. Mariah New Bern

Mediocre food, worse drinks.. Very overpriced for the quality. Waiter was pleasant, atmosphere was fine, food was barely edible.

Tried this place out for a family lunch and could not have a good conversation without the woman on the next table joining in. Maybe her husband does not talk to her or she was more interested in us. So then onto the food. I have never heard of the appetizer coming out after the entree. So apart from a... More

Service is always excellent and the food is always excellent!!! There have even been a couple of times that we have ordered take out. We got home... More

We live close to Rucker Johns and visit often. The service is excellent and the food is quite good. Their honey dripped croissants are to die for but they are loaded with calories so I take a bite and give the rest to my husband. He doesn't like the restaurant because they don't change often enough for him. He likes... More

Love the mushrooms and other sides. Good beverages, like eating in the bar area. Do not care for the sweet bread. I love that type of bread but prefer it plain or with regular butter.
