Loved the unique variety of appetizers and entrees. Had the spicy fried shrip on a bed of lettuce. Delicious. Good variety of drink options, both for adults and children. Separated dining area or you can grab a table in bar area. I recommend this unique restaurant. Tichiganblues

I've tried it three times, have given up. Nothing horrible to report, just mediocre food and service. I've had better at the local Ruby Tuesdays.

Every time I go there I try something different and am always happy with each selection. They have a great staff and I love the fact that they are local (Winterville, Emerald Isle and Wilmington) are their only locations --- pretty cool if you ask me!

I go to Rucker Johns in Winterville/Greenville quite often - not only with individual friends but also with bridge groups. The food is always good and the service is always excellent. Price range is great for the quality and quantity of food. There is a wide variety on the menu so anyone can find something for the appetite.

The Bucky Bites with sweet potatoes are so good. Its no longer on the menu. Best honey crossiant which comes with the wonderful flavorful salads. The sandwiches are large and can feed 2. Great place to sit at the bar and watch a game.

I really wanted to like this restaurant, but I found it to be only okay. I had a salad, which was actually very good and my husband had chicken fingers, which were extremely greasy. The waitstaff was very nice. I think the atmosphere would have been better had their not been a large, loud party next to us, but that's... More

Went to this restaurant for our daughter's wedding rehearsal dinner. Pleased with the polite staff and the food. We had about 25 people for the dinner and everyone loved their food. Very good place to eat in Emerald Isle.

Our neighbor invited us to go out to Rucker Johns in Winterville. The ribs are Danish style (OK but not great) and my wife had a Ribeye. She said the Ribeye was great. Our neighbors tried the filet and said they had just discovered their new favorite steak house. All in All, the meal was good, the atmosphere was good,... More

I have always love the Emerald Isle, NC location and this one just pales in comparison. They have good food and good waitstaff, but it is just missing something special.

We decided to try because of being local. Nothing too special or different than a Chili's or Applebee's. Menu and atmosphere is very similar but not in a bad way just boring. Good prices, service and food but nothing special or different.
